Anyone in the Philly Area?


Just looking around for other Home Brew Stores, I know one down 202 by Delaware, and we usually go to one in Havertown on Darby Rd.

Wondering if anyone is around us and where you go/what experiences you may have had with those places. The only problem I have with our current store is the hours, 9-5 and closed Sunday and Monday. Rough when you work an 8-4:30 job over half an hour away. That and the owner is a great guy but seems to not be a huge fan of flavored beers, so we're kinda on our own..except you guys of course.

Then again maybe it is better to just try it on our own and succeed or fail that way.

I'm from the Philly area, Drexel Hill specifically and I never knew there was a HBS on Darby Road! What's the address?

As for other shops in the Philly area that I know of...

http://www.homesweethomebrew.com/ - Downtown Philly (20th & Sansom) but they are open Sunday

http://www.barryshomebrew.com/ - South Philly (Front & Snyder) but also closed Sunday and Monday

http://www.keystonehomebrew.com/ - 2 Locations, Montgomeryville and Bethlehem. Both open 7 days a week.

HAHA Where in Drexel Hill I'm in Lansdowne.

If you go up Lansdowne Ave into Havertown, just passed the school, and just before the split for Darby and Eagle. It'll be on your left Right next to Cycleline I think the bike shop is called, real small place, nice owner....I'm not sure how big of a selection that is compared to other stores, as I haven't been IN any.

http://www.winebarleyandhops.com/ is in Feasterville, not exactly local.


Keystone is my LHBS and they are decent folks, plenty helpful if you want the assistance.

Used to live in Drexel Hill. The guy at Brew your own beer on Darby Road is great. He's amazingly helpful. His stock is just ok, but he'll order anything you want. Now my closest store is the Keystone in Bethlehem. Great selection there, and I assume the Montgomeryville location is just as good. You, however, won't get quite the same personal attention there. Either way, I think you'll be happy.

One of my best friends lives in Lansdowne and my mom grew up there. I'm near Burmont & Marshall Rds. in Drexel Hill.

Small world.

Litterally Just got back from the shop on Darby Road. Ran there on my lunch break, working in Radnor. Grew up in Springfield. PJNC and I had discussed maybe having a beer swap early next year after we get a few more batches ready. More the merrier as far as I am concerned if anyone else wants in! (Sorry to hijack the thread - ill start a post for that later...)

I usually go to the Wine/Beer emporium on 202 by Mcenzie's brew house because its closer to West Chester where I live. Its getting expensive up there. Im starting to get most of my stuff on line.
