Read about this place on here so I was in town for Mothers Day and decided to check it out on my way home. Easy to spot from the road as there is a large Pinocchio's Pizza sign out front. The parking was minimal, but I was lucky enough to get an open spot. I could see the parking being a problem when it's busy. It's a bit confusing when it comes time to decide what door to go in. There were two out front. I went in the first one, which was the restaurant. Then went into the second one which appears to be the food take-out. There was a small beer cooler in there. I stood there staring at it wondering how this minimal selection had gotten such great reviews. With disappointment, I about got back in my car and went home, but something told me to walk around the side. There it was, the "Beer Garden".
The Beer Garden was rather small, but not crowded, so it wasn't an issue. They only had singles for mixing 6-packs. The beers were sorted in alphabetical order. First PA beers, then American, then import, then bombers. Around the register they had various beers of older vintages. They also had one cooler of Belgians and one of BMC's.
They also featured 20 taps for growler fills. Nothing too crazy there, but a decent line-up none the less.
They say they have over 700 different beers. Some notables were Angels Share , Speedway Stout, La fin du Monde, Damnation, various Bells, Ballast Point (Sculpin), Troegs, Cantillon, Mikeller (Breakfast and Weasel) to name a few.
The guy working the counter appeared to be very knowledgeable and was helpful. He directed me to their website to see updated inventory and Facebook for live updates on new arrivals.
Definitely a good place to check out, especially for those local PA brews and Cali brews I can't get up my way.

Longtime Media pizza restaurant/deli expanded to feature craft beers, more seating, and more taps. I have never dined in but I craved pizza and the taplist sold us, so we crossed the bridge. Port High Tide and Stone Double IPA...enough said.
Salt of the earth regulars, Delconians and families with little kids. Crowded on a Monday night at dinner time, we got the last free booth. They had a few TV's but the one over our booth was off.
Service was awesome. Food was cheap and satisfying. I recommend the lightly battered green beans app for $6. I requested marinara as a dipping sauce instead of ranch and they were fine with that. Make your own mini pizza $9. Bill had the special grilled ham on pretzel sandwich.
The Growlers and beer store in the back is like a 4.5 in itself but I am just reviewing our dining experience. Thanks and we will be back! :)

I am new to this forum although I've been an appreciator of craft beer for quite some time now. The selection at the Beer Garden is nearly untouchable for this area; that being said they are outrageously priced. I just paid $25 to get my growler refilled with Southern Tier's Pumpkin Ale at this place. I could have literally walked down the street and bought a six pack for less, resulting in more beer-less money. I was ripped off by these guys the last time I was in there with their "make your own six pack" program, so I thought that the growler would be a better price point. I was obviously wrong. This place is a rip-off, there are a bunch of other places in the area to get great beer at normal pricing.

The beer garden, separate from the restaurant, has a very extensive selection of bottles and numerous taps for glasses or growlers. Not many seats in there but definitely worth a visit for building a six pack to go! The staff is very helpful but my only complaint, not about the business itself, is that parking is a nightmare as their lot is not very big. Defintely not a reason to stay away though, if you like craft beers and like to sip a few while you shop, then this is your place!

Took a trip from south jersey and found it well worth it. The first time I was there the place was empty (Sun. afternoon) so I had a great chat with the bartender and he was a big help with finding beers. I found many beers that are not available in NJ so was happy to try some new top of the line beers. Can not say enough about the help...awesome. Will be back often.

We went to the Sam Adams tasting event during beer week. They always have good stuff on draft in this place. The beer garden is so small, the beers they have in stock are overpriced ($13.50 for a 6 of Twin Lakes Greenville? Really?)and they don't really have the "rare" stuff you might find in another craft beer store. However the atmosphere is nice and the guys who work there are awesome beer drinkers just like us. The food is amazing, we have been going there since I was a kid. It is well worth the trip if you are in the tri state area or just passing through.
