Trenton Road Take Out has been servicing the local community since 1970. At first as one of many shot-and-beer bars servicing the workers of the U.S. Steel Mill and then transitioning to a domestic and craft beer bottle shop in 1986, adding wine a few years back.
Trenton Road Take Out at 1024 Trenton Road in Fallsington is owned by the Feinman family, who have been part of the Levittown community since 1955. Michael along with his daughter Nicole run the shop and both have raised their families in Levittown, with Michael graduating from Neshaminy High School and Nicole graduating from Pennsbury High School.
With one of the largest selections of beers, ciders and seltzers in the area, they offer customers the chance to buy 19.2 oz, 24 oz, 6pks, 12 pks , 15pks, and hundreds of singles to mix to your liking.
The business is stocked with close to 1,000 types of beer, cider, and seltzer. Trenton Road Takeout recently has begun to carry more seltzers, non-alcoholic beers and drinks with no or a reduced amount of gluten, as those have become desired by a growing number of customers.
Customers travel from all over the area and beyond to be able to pick and choose from the shop’s large selection of highly-rated craft beers to mix a collection of their liking.
“It has become a destination,” Michael said of the shop, which is well organized and easy to navigate.
Michael, who ironically doesn’t drink, uses the knowledge of his daughter Nicole, Untappd ratings, customer requests, and salesman recommendations to constantly update the store’s selection of craft beers.
“I try not to follow anyone else,” he added. “I stay in my lane.”
Locals are invited to stop in to play a full line of Pennsylvania Lottery Games or sit down to enjoy a nice cold beer and Corropolese Tomato Pie while playing the fast-paced Keno Game.
The store features a Craft Beer Growler Station where customers can fill growlers or have a draft to drink in house. The beers on draft are constantly changing.
Trenton Road Take Out is a major supporter of It’s A Ruff Life Rescue, a local dog rescue. With donations of beers for their It’s A Ruff Life Rescue Beer Auction and a countertop collection. The business has raised tens of thousands of dollars to help dogs.
Trenton Road Takeout has also built a strong following on social media. Michael has used his funny and irrelevant style to draw followers who often become longtime customers.
Trenton Road Takeout’s accounts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have helped and even led to the creation of a social media rack, which features beers promoted online.
Prior to Trenton Road Takeout being a bottle shop, it was the Trenton Road Tavern, a longtime staple of the area. Michael’s father, Leo, owned the tavern and got into the business after working as a contractor who helped build the shopping center where the business is located.
