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!

I used to live within 20 minutes of this place which was both a blessing and a curse.
There certainly isn't any case distributor in the valley that comes close with selection. It's clean, brightly lit and well kept.
The staff isn't the most helpful with recommendations though they certainly aren't unpleasant- save the one cashier. Nima,the owner, is one of the sweetest guys you'll meet and a nice chat if you're able. If you're looking for something they don't have in stock but are able to order,they'll usually accommodate which is very nice.
It's been said over and over in the reviews but I'll echo the sentiment for checking the dates on the more obscure(especially import) cases. Usually not an issue but it happens.
Pricing is spotty; you'll find some deals and you'll find some high,though that's no new phenomenon.
Worth a trip if you're in the area and want to lighten your wallet,

I've been a Shangy's customer and fan for over 20 years. This is simply the best beer store I've ever seen or heard of. Top marks for quality, quantity, variety, and generally really good value. Staff is mostly knowledgeable and owners are really into good beer. "Welcome to Beer Heaven"!
