Living in Center City, it felt odd to go back home to Northeast Philadelphia for the sole purpose of beer.
I was tipped off based on intial hype during the openeing. I didnt't expect to be wowed like i was. The selection is tremendous with a great balance of quality and quantity.
About 20 doors with the breakout being approx. 3 for local craft, 6 for American craft, 5 international (heavy English, Belgian and German with good Canadian and other Euro) and 4 for American Macros.
The selection ranges from affoardable Sam Adams singles to hard to find bombers from Russian River, Green Flash, Southern Tier and Lost Abbey. Make sure youy look outside the cases as the front of the store has a nice selection of bombers and mixed 12 packs on the floor by the entry.
The staff is exceptional. Everyone knows there stuff and loves beer. We were even given a set of glassware for making a large purchase. The prices are very competitive as well (try finding a bottle of Concecration for what i paid). You can even sit at one of about 8 tables in the back and drink up to 3 of your brews (as long as your eating one of the free hot dogs - PA laws!).
They are an asset to the NE Philly Beer community. They plan to increase tasting events and adjust the selection based on demand. I look forward to adding this place to my rotation.
Update: They now carry growlers!

Glad to see a beer spot with a good selection open up fairly close to me. I have a feeling im gonna love this place. It sure beats driving to and in New Jersey.
Quality- A nice clean looking store with a wall full of coolers that stretches a bit. Some tables to sit down and enjoy a beer. In the back it seems that there is some equipment to make food, hopefully in the future this is true. Everything's laid out nice, not to cluttered. The only downfall is that prices are not listed on everything & you have to ask. Some things are a tad overpriced, I picked up a Long Trail DIPA and they wanted $8 for it before tax. I put it back down.
Service- I think this place has been open for three weeks & the staff is very eager to assist you, always asking if you need anything. They said they would special order anything they could aquire that was not there at the time. Seems like a friendly group of people. A quick easy checkout.
Selection- Not too huge but they do have some lovely beer here and it's thought out well. American Craft, locals, Imports (de Dolle, others) West Coast (RR Damnation, LA/PP beers). I was surprised to see two bottles of Sculpin sitting on the Shelf. I yoinked them up with the quickness. If they have Sculpin, they have some pull, let's see what the future brings.

Just checked out this brand new six-pack store in Philly's Northeast last weekend:
Inconspicuously located in a neighborhood shopping plaza, this spot is definitely a diamond in the rough and a great spot to stop at on the way home from The Grey Lodge.
Staff welcomes you right when you come in and their enthusiasm for beer is obvious from moment one. Warm selections in 22 or 25 ounce bottles are featured at the front entrance and a wall of coolers takes up the entire left side of the medium-sized store front.
Beers are broken up by nation of origin, with US beers broken into two sections; craft and macro. Selection is quite respectable, covering all bases concerning PA craft brews, while hitting up national favorites (Stone, Rogue, etc.) and boasting a few up-and-comers (Saint Somewhere, The Bruery). The international section focuses mainly on Belgian and German imports (which is just fine), but includes a few interesting picks from the Spanish-speaking nations (Estrella Damm Inedit!).
I made my own six-pack (which is a huge bonus), grabbing bottles of Weyerbacher Zotten (a new Belgian-style Pale), Piraat, St. Bernardus Wit, Monk's Flemish Sour, Cooper's Extra, and Young's Double Chocolate. I also picked up two deuces; O'Hara's Celebration Stout and Saint Somewhere's Lectio Divina.
All-in-all, a great beer-buying experience and a nice addition to the NE.

This is a six pack and singles store opened up by the same people who run The Beer Outlet. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/11740
There are about 20 or so refridgerators full of beer. The first fridges are filled with local brews. (Victory, Yards, Flying Fish, etc) From there the fridges contain other US craft brews, World beers and lastly Macros.
The selection is very nice and the employees will offer you an empty six pack right away after saying "hello." They are as excited about beer as you are and are up for having a chat.
There are a few tables set up for sitting back and enjoying your selections. They also serve bombers as well. Prices are reasonable and the location makes it perfect for someone in the Northeast who does not want to take the trip into Center City or New Jersey.
