Very clean with most of there stuff in coolers. Really nice selection of local, U.S., and worldly brews. Most of the beer in the coolers is 12oz with the bombers ket warm (a few are in coolers, though). They fill growlers or you can buy a pint and drink as you browse. Friendly staff. A bit pricey but best selection in the area. I’ll be back.

We visit the CBO every other time we are back in Philly. Located next to a Dunkin’ Donuts in a strip mall - it’s a great place with a solid selection - Lost Abbey, Pizza Boy, Old Forge, other local offerings, Founders, Bells - typical craft fare. Probably one of the best craft selections in Philly. They also do have taps and growler fills, but I’ve never done any and not sure how they price.
Visited June 20, 2013, in the morning. It was a long drive from where I was staying in Philly but it was the highest rated and well worth the drive. Very good selection, it was hard to choose, but some of the prices made it easier not to take them, like Allagash at 22 and 25 dollars for a 25 oz. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. The place it self, at a strip mall is not that big, but they only sell single so. But it’s very clean and easy to get around, a lot of parking space.
A nice clean place with lots of coolers ... Good selection of new arrivals, special brews and your average joe .... they have a few taps in the back, growler fills and some events ... the guys are all helpful and know their beers .... kind of pricey, but the convenience of building a six pack in PA makes it appealing
Stopped in on my trip to PA when heading to my aunt’s house. Really well stocked. Love that majority of the beer are in coolers and ready to drink when you get to your destination. Lots of awesome stuff to choose from. The woman working there was very nice and knowledgeable. Pricing seemed pretty normal. Must stop in NE Philly.

My wife accidentally stumbled onto this gem for me. I wasn’t expecting much when I went in but I was rather surprised with the selection. I usually have to travel to Issacs or Capones to find quality beer. The service is friendly and each time I go in, the selection seems to be growing. You can crack a beer open in the store and drink it right their. And they usually have something on draft in the back. Last week I believe he had Bell’s Oberon on draft.
Updates 5/6 They now have ALESMITH AND THE ANGELS SHARE
Great place. Stopped on my way to visit Leafs93. Very clean, very organized. The owner was very friendly. Being from NJ, I was in love with the fact that they had Alesmith, Port/Lost Abbey, Russian River, and Bell’s. I’m sure they had some Cigar CIty as well, and I am upset I forgot to give it a look. If I ever find myself down that way again, this is a definite must stop.
Solid selection. About 6 growler fills but a bit pricey. I think they have half price growlers on Monday or Tuesday. Overall pretty solid and a bit out of place for the area it seems. Not worth a trip from Philly but if you’re in the area it definitely is.
I found out about this place recently and had to go check it out. Selection is fantastic. They do occasional samplings from different brewers, which is a great idea for a beer store. They have growlers available for their taps in the back, about 5 of them. They allow you do split up six packs and make your own... another hard thing to do in Pennsylvania. Prices are OK. Service was great, very helpful, will look in the back for things that may not be up front.
