We visited this fine and worthy establishment on our way to a wedding yesterday. It made for a quick and successful stop. Easy on, easy off the highway and easy to find. Largish rectangle shaped store. What you immediately will encounter is the vast selection of cases available (yes your in Pa and you can only buy by the case) and the extensive selection of beer glasses for sale. They also offer a respectable selection of hot sauces and some snacks. But you came for the beer, the selection is very good, including some 3 Floyds, Bells, tons of Belgians, Brooklyn, Avery to name just a few. You will find tons of very high quality selections, including some (but not enough) variety cases. Well worth the visit, only 5 mins. off of the highway. The staff was friendly and knew their stuff to boot!

This place takes the concept of retail beer distribution to a whole new level.

Instead of it being some warehouse with palettes of beer covered in plastic wrap, this is an actual beer boutique.

Yet the prices are actually much cheaper than most of the bang up places that you'll find scattered across all of NEPA.

Make the trip here, you wont be disappointed.

Great selection, but make sure you check your best buy dates...

Best beer store in the Lehigh Valley area. Great selection of craft beer from the US and all over the world. The staff is very knowledgeable about beer and are always willing to find something for you if you don't feel like wandering around aimlessly in search of a certain brew. They have both bottles and kegs available and they are both retail and wholesale. Highly Recommend checking this place out if you are in the area.

I have mixed feelings about Shangy's. I've had both: my share of good times and bad.

The positives:

The is a huge selection of beer from around the world
Quite a few employees working if you need help
Reasonable prices.

The negatives:

Run like a business...doesn't have that warm, welcome feeling I like when I go to other distributors
Ownership can be rude at times
Lot of beer also means lot of out dated beer. Watch for the skunked beer.
Tough to find many of the smaller, local craft brews

Overall I have stopped going to Shangy's and have enjoyed shopping for my beer elsewhere.
