Huge, clean, organized, and helpful. It really can't get better than this. An excellent selection of micros and imports. There probably was some old stock (nobody has Christmas beers out yet, do they?). As always, check dates. The only other drawback is the Pennsylvannia case-only rule. Happily, there are many variety packs for those of us who don't want 24 of the same beer. Heartily recommended. (09-04-02)
Update: Beers come, beers go, but Shangy's remains a measuring stick for PA beer distributors. (08-27-05)
Update II: Surprised to learn that they are still closed on Sundays, as of 11-13-05.
Update III: It has dawned on my that Shangys is severely neglecting PA beers in favor of out of staters, and I am forced to re-evaluate their selection. I'm a drink local guy.

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"!
