The Beer Store in Southampton has become one of our favorite places for a quiet beer.
Facebook pageAs with most good beer stores, The Beer Store has huge selection of beer. There is a small, 4 person, bar along with about four tables. The atmosphere is always friendly there. The beertenders are always willing to help you find the exact beer you want. They also have a selection of cigars but the store is non smoking. A small food selection is available. The TV is either tuned to a game or a movie. In addition to the 24 beers on tap, you can purchase a variety of single bottles for in-house or you can mix and match a six pack. Growlers are also available for most beer on tap.
The policy is that once a beer on tap is gone, it is replaced with a different beer. Keep in mind that they close earlier than bars as is the case with many beer stores.
They occasionally have events such as Jerk Chicken Night with great Jamaican Jerk Chicken cooked to order. Check their site or their Facebook page for updates. They also have locations in Malvern and in Franklin Mills in Philadelphia.

I was driving through Tyler State Park in 2006 and saw this guy sitting in a field.
In 2005 I came across a large snapping turtle in my front yard. One word of caution. They are FAST and onery. Keep a safe distance.
I opened up the picnic umbrella and found this little guy.
