Stores for craft beer and nice wine?

AgentRed | Jan 13, 2010 05:42 PM

Hey folks,

I'm new to PA and the licensing laws seem so odd. But when in Rome...! I don't know where to find good beer/wine.

I'm not looking for Pabst or Budweiser, but are there any places (between center city and the mainline) where they have an interesting selection of local or smaller breweries? Or a wine store where the staff know what they're talking about? The beer place I go to is just full of shift workers who couldn't care less about the product. I'm no snoot myself but just a recommendation on what's good in stock etc... would be nice

Pinot Noir on market looks good and I haven't been in yet but I'm guessing it'll be overpriced. Is there anywhere that's good and small but not too expensive? Many thanks!
