Walking into this place was the biggest surprise. From the outside, it looks like your standard small BMC distributor in the suburbs. However, inside, they have such a great selection and a lot of the harder to find beers in the area. I even found [and promptly cleaned them out of] Cantillon here!
The staff are very helpful, and have made mention of being on beer advocate and reading up on what people want and what is new, and which beers are highly rated.
When something is new, they try their hardest to get it, and usually succeed. They also have a facebook page that will update you weekly on their new arrivals.
Prices are also unbeatable.
Also, if you're a cigar fan (which i'm not) they have a walk-in humidor with a huge selection (not sure about quality though as I know nothing about them) and another separate, closed off room for smoking - with upholstered chairs, tables, etc. fancy fancy.

This store is located right off West Chester Pike, near Providence road.
The parking lot is small, the outside of the store looks like an average Pennsylvania beer distributer.
When you step into the store you smell the fine cigars, not bad.
After walking past the register there is a large wall of craft beer to the left and right. Cases stacked on top of cases of seasonal and limited releases. Past that on the left is a wall full of super rare and limited stuff that honestly I have yet to find elsewhere. This is the only store that has Russian River Consecration and Supplication all day. They also have stuff like Anchorage brewing, and another dozen or so sought after cases of bombers.
The problem is there are no prices on anything. You have to keep asking what this or that costs, and I have seen them charge an extra 5$ on cases of stuff I've bought elsewhere and know the price. Trying to squeeze an extra buck out of me. Also if they have a seasonal or desirable beer in stock they will not tell you over the phone. You must show up and inquire about what they have.
It also gets pretty warm in the summer and many of the rare cases are stored on the top shelf 10 feet in the air where the temperature is pushing 90 degrees all day.
If you are in the area definitely stop in and browse, but be knowledgeable and cautious of old out of date or improperly stored cases.

Coming from a self-described beer geek I was thrilled to find so many brews to choose from! They do events weekly, with various brews, and feature a lineup of their beers. But the best part is the staff. All very friendly, I've had long discussions with several. This place is ridiculous. GREAT selection. GREAT service. They will go a mile to make sure their customers are happy. And if they don't have what you're looking for, they will do their best to order it for you! The staff member working helped me pick out some great finds, even going to far as to tell me beers they had in the back they could bring out for me.

The beer selection is all high end craft beers including a great selection of Belgians. The quality of the beers they had was all very good, and the prices were very reasonable. This is a great place to go for unusual, harder-to-find beers, especially imports. They have a wide variety of beers and the largest number of different, hard-to-find beers. They also do a great job at securing some of the harder to find beers. It seems like the owner has a great relationship with his reps and that benefits everyone that's interested in getting some rare brews.

My main focus of an entire day was to try this beer venue, and I'm glad I did. They have an amazing selection with an atmosphere full of people who are at least aware of the craft beer movement and its importance. They also have cigars with best prices around.
I honestly cannot afford to visit here on a regular basis so when I do it’s a real treat. Well-lit, well-stocked, and the staff behind it all, are just all-around fantastic people. I was really excited to find some rarities. A very nice store that has some great selection.

Best beer and cigar selection in the area. Reasonable prices.
This is the go-to place when you're looking for your craft favorite or even some hard to find or obscure beer. If they don't have it, they'll try to get it for you.
They expanded their space into the shop next door, doubling the size and setting up a cigar smoking lounge. Increased popularity seems to have followed because it's even more crowded now than ever. They have great beer tastings every weekend.
The staff is helpful and quite knowledgeable.

My first caveat: do not buy beer from this place unless the bottles have dates on them, unless you are buying something high in ABV. I bought a Great Divide variety case only to get home and see the bottles were bottled 6-7 months prior. Gross. Douchebags even tried to tell me the stuff was good for 1.5 years. No its not. Morons. They also follow you as you browse and breathe down your neck. Service is terrible and far from knowledgeable. The selection is great but I guarantee most of it is old crap, including their single bottle shelves. Avoid this place.

I've lived about a mile or two from this place for just over three years now, and I finally got up to giving them a visit. It's definitely a nice shop. Looks small from the outside, but it's pretty massive and well-organized inside. Lots of good stuff to choose from, from Founders to Ommegang to Hoppin' Frog to Russian River. Most of the beer is case-only (thanks again, PA), but they do in fact have quite a few selections available as single bottle purchases somehow. Service was fine, and they helped me out when I asked. On the down side, they're pretty fascist with some of their supplies, and when rarities come in, they're quick to advertise them, but refuse to sell them unless you're in the "inner circle" or buy a case of something else to make you worthy. And even then, good luck.
The humidor is nice too, not huge, but plenty of good choices at reasonable prices. I picked up a Perdomo Champagne 10th Ann. Churchill for $4.99...I've seen them go for up to twice that amount elsewhere.
Anyway, I rarely to never buy a case of anything, but it's good to know this place exists, and I'd probably go back to get some more prices on things like RR, in case I ever feel like picking up a bottle or two.

I'm not a cigar smoker so I can't speak to their selection or prices but they looked impressive and had a walk in humidor. It's definitely an impressive beer selection by the case, with competitive prices that were lower than many other stores I've seen nearby. Friendly and helpful service. Case selection included many choices from Russian River, Port/Lost Abbey, Drie Fontinen; all of the locals, many regionals, broad selection of Belgians to boot. There was a single rack of mostly large format beers, with a nice mix of Lost Abbey, Bruery, Mikkeller, and the like. Picked up a bottle of Older Viscosity for 14.99 which was 5 bucks less than at Pinocchio's or Frontier Saloon in Folsom.
I don't buy many beers by the case but I'd definitely stop by here if was planning on it. I'll swing by whenever if I'm in the neighborhood and take a look at that singles rack at the very least. Worth a visit.

These guys are sleaze balls. They try to lure you in with promises of specialty beers only to tell you that because you are not a regular customer they won't sell you any. I have no objection to the practice, I actually applaud it, but be honest and up front with people. Don't make potential customers take multiple trips knowing good and well you have no intention of selling them what they want, all because you hope that you can bait and switch them. It's flat out shady business. I recommend that you take a drive to some where else even if the selection isn't quite as good. But I guess I place a premium on honesty and integrity.
