What can I say about Exton and it's owner Greg. In the short time I have been dealing with him and Exton, they have become my main source for beer. What a great place to buy beer at reasonable prices.
Selection of micro and crafts is well above average than other places. Hard to find stuff is stocked as well as everything local. Just to list a few that are constantly on hand (exluding the favorite PA local breweries) are Sierra Nevada, Stone, Bells, Magic Hat, Southern Tier, Brooklyn, Bear Republic (new to area), Smuttynose, Avery, DFH and many others. I just can't remember them all. If Greg does not stock it, just ask and if he can get it he will.
His selection of sixtels is excellent and of course he will order anything he can get if not stocked.
Overall Exton is far and away the best distributor in the area. If you are around, stop in and talk beer with him or any of his staff which are all very friendly and knowlegable. Top notch place, thanks Greg!

Huge selection of all available beers distributed in Pennsylvania. Easy to find off Rt. 30, grab and go from a large parking area. Employees will dolly out your cases and help you load the wagon. always nice.
Good staff, decent prices, and I'll stop again when I'm in the area.

This is one of the larger beer distributers in the suburbs.
The parking lot is big. Once you walk in there are no lie about a thousand cases of beer arranged nicely in aisles.
This place stocks almost every brand/brewery that is available in Pennsylvania, Bells, Founders, Russian River and some more obscure hard to find stuff. Honestly if you can't find a beer in stock they will order it in for you.
The staff is straight forward and honest. Every time I have called to inquire about what they have in stock they have been truthful unlike many other distributers in the area.
The only downside is the place is an oven in the summer. The temperature in the store regularly exceeds 90 degrees and I'd wager that the stuff sitting on the top of the shelves is closer to 100 degrees. So be weary about older stock in the fall.
Other than that this place is legit.

This is my go-to spot. The staff is always extremely friendly and helpful. Their craft aisle is amazing with just about every domestic micro of note represented. They also have some very nice imports that I have yet to see anywhere else. If they don't have something, every attempt will be made to order it for you.
As a bonus, they keep the stock as fresh as possible so often times there will be "clearance" cases and you can find some real steals. Over Christmas I paid $14 for a case of Gamma Ray.
One of the best places to buy beer in PA.

A: After reading about this place I was finally in the area and had the chance to stop in. The atmosphere is pretty dang nice. Lots of cases, lots of cases. One thing that did stand out, the wonderful smell of cigars; loved it!
Q: Nice wide isles. To a XXL, I can't stress how much I appreiate this. Lots of parking as well.
Ser: No one really approched/bothered me while I was perusing the isles. They kinda waited for me to get finished, and then they talked beer with me for a good bit. I was on my lunch break, or I'm sure they would have been happy to spend a little longer 'just talking beer'.
Sel: I have never ssen cases of Russian River, Cascade, World Wide Stout. They have the best selection, I've ever seen, in cases. In fact, I landed a case of Stone IRS 2011, which I have been looking for just a bottle of.
More than glad I stopped in!

I'm spoiled to live within 10 minutes of this place. On 3 occasions (most recently last Friday) I've gone in for Consecration and they have had cases there for me each time. This past time was the 1st time they didn't have it on display but after I asked, they went into the back and found a case.
The selection is great. Stone, Russian River, Port, Bells, Founders, etc. Everything is well marked so I don't have to ask how much everything is. I will say that Beer Yard has even more variety but they are in an entirely different class.
The employees there aren't geeks but they deal with enough of them to know how to serve them. I've never gotten bad service there.

I visited Exton Beverage today for the first time. I was extremely impressed with the selection. Hard to find items....in stock. I had a list of 15 brews that I was interested in and they had all but one.
The prices were a bit higher than I usually pay for my "regular" choices but I'd gladly pay a little more to know I can get the "specialties" at any time. The only negative was the service. The staff seemed knowledgeable when I asked them questions, but I was in the building for over an hour and no one asked if I needed help. Fortunately, I had my smart phone and could get reviews and info from B.A. on products I had never heard of before. Overall, I would recommend Exton to meet most of your needs.

The beverage center in Exton is about as good a place for cases as I have discovered in Pennsylvania. The store is open and airy much like a Sam’s Club for beer. What distinguishes Exton from all others I have been to is the sheer variety. Outside of just macro beer, this place really seems to have every beer they can get their paws on. I was really impressed with their selection of Troeg’s, Bells, Great Lakes and several others. The workers were also friendly. I went in to bring back a case for a friend. Not realizing the many varieties Yuengling had, I was kinda lost. The worker explained what each was and led me to what my friend was probably looking for. Helpful, but not intrusive. I will probably never get a case for any other purpose as it would most likely take me a couple months to drink that much. However, if I were looking for cases in the area this would be the first beverage center I would go to.
