Stopped by here a while ago.

Kunda Beverage looks like your average liquor/booze/beer store with the neons and all those sale priced BMC signs. A big sign with KUNDA on the front. Spot is fairly large but drab as hell and 70's looking. Beer is all over the place, but organized fairly well. A good but not the best selection in the area as far as cases go, I have a few other distributors up my sleeve. Service is pretty shitty, not engaging at all. I tried to reserve a case and weas told on the phone, "Yes, your the 1st to reserve this one, it's yours. I get there and they have no recolection of the conversation or my name and number that they supposedly wrote down. Fuck Them. The beer is here, you just have to know what to get and make sure it's fresh, no need for help, when none is there. Im very glad Origlio bought out Kunda's RR contract, they don't deserve it.

They have a very good selection, well organized but a bit pricey. I know it's King of Prussia but still seems high. Service left a little to be desired - was looking to see if they had or could get something for me and it was like I was bothering them. I know I am new to the area and not a "regular" but having such a good selection you would hope that they would be more passionate about the product - maybe I was spoiled by my previous go to place....
Also saw a previous post about old stock - still true, you need to check dates carefully.

Good selection and clean atmosphere and reasonable prices. Large parking lot with easy access and highly visable red neon sign. Hand trucks are readily available to help get your beer to the car.

Hours are kinda poor, they close at 7pm on a Friday night.

Staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they have a price list on the wall where you can look up a beer yourself, but it just tells you the price, not if it is available or where it is located.

Offers products from many breweries and usually stocks rarer items or will order upon request.

I live right around this place. Very nice lay out for browsing, big bright open space and signs around each section for pricing.

They have all the PA micros and a very nice selection of out of towners as well. The import selection is nice too.

The prices are a bit expensive, and the there have been times when I was in here and have not had someone ask me if I needed help for a half and hour. And I just wind up getting something after the half hour. But sometimes you need another persons opinion to help make you pick something quicker.

They are very easy to get to and get in and out of as well, which is always a plus.

I just found Beer Yard in Wayne and that will be my first choice. This is a close second.

This place is about 10 minutes from my house.
I decided to check it out the other day.

Big old school sign out front clearly states, KUNDA BEV.

Pretty decent size distributor inside. I was suprised at the variety of beer they carry.
Lots of imports and lots of "top shelf" brews too.
I was there about 10 minutes before anyone asked if i needed help.
Overall i stayed about 20 minutes just looking at the different cases.
This is a decent place that i'll probably check out again. Most places near me do not have this much variety.

Kunda is located close to my office, so it is convenient in that respect, but damn the traffic in KOP sucks!

Nice store layout, big, bright & easy to find everything. The local, regional and some international brews are each grouped individually so it is easy to find if you know the general geography your brewer of choice is located.

Service is quirky, they seem to like to hole up in their little booth and pay little mind to the browsing customers. They are however polite if you approach them.

Selection is a tad above average, nothing earth shattering the several times I've been there, but certainly way better than your typical BMC distributor.

I tend to hit this place for the more available micros, their prices are reasonable, but often have to/prefer to hit the beer yard for the not so easy to find brews and one-offs

Stayed with some friends in the area who lived right by here. Stopped in despite already going beer shopping a few other places. When you buy beer in PA is really is a heaven/hell scenario. The heaven is the mind blowing selection. All the Troegs, Weyerbacher, and other assorted PA brews. Founders, Bells, Russian River, Port and other crazy things as well. The sight of cases of Lost and Found and Damnation was something to see. The case of damnation was $120 if I remember correctly. The service was there and asked if I needed help after about 20 mins then quickly retreated into their little booth. The only complaint I could think of has more to do with the PA beer laws than this place. Wish I could have picked up a few single bottles. I have been to Yard House in the past and this place stands up.

Right around the corner to my house, but still not my primary shopping place.

Bigger place, nice selection, and decent prices since they have the traffic volume to sell a lot of beer. You can buy more than just cases which is nice compared to some other places around here. I noticed the guys working there don't jump to help you out unless you've been walking around for a while. Generally I'm not sure what i want when i go to get some beer, and often want someone to sell me something i havent had before. Beeryard is better at that than Kunda.

Overall a nice place. I don't mind going there, especially if i know what i want, but i generally shop elsewhere.

By PA distributor standards, Kunda is a gem. I'm usually not a big fan of buying cases, but when I do I inevitably end up at Kunda. They carry a very nice selection. I'm partial to Saranac and they have more selection, ten times over, than any other distributor I've ever visited. I was able to buy a has of 12 Saranac Pale Ale Growlers. The prices tend to be slightly on the steep side, but that's the price for an awesome selection. There website is also very helpful as they maintain a detailed listing of their selections on line. They have a small section of "closeouts" and brewery merchandise that adds to the "ambiance."

Stopped on a Monday about noon. The store was empty of shoppers, except for me. The store is nicely arranged with imports in one area, North American microbrews in another, and the macros in another section.
The selction was good, but not anything I haven't seen closer to my home. The stock looked fresh. There was a markdown area, but somethings looked very old, but others apperaed good. I purchased a case of Harpoon brown ale from this area, and it is perfect.
Prices seemed reasonable, at least what was marked. There was large cardborad poster with all the aitems and their prices, but there was a line drawn through all the prices.
A nice place to stop if you are in the area, and a good place if you live nearby, but not a destination to travel a distance for.
