What a great place. Massive selection. I liked the way they put placards with their own reviews and ratings on the top of the cases of beer.

Staff was helpful in all the right ways. I was well-prepared with the BA Top 100 list and kept looking up reviews on my iPhone while taking notes. The staff let me be when I was engaged but as soon as I needed some assistance they were right there to support me.

I was tickled to find Hair of the Dog products here and scored a case of the rare Doggie Claws.

They helped me load up the car on my way out. Highly recommended.

Was a fan of this place. Called for almost a month looking for founders harvest ale. Was always polite on the phone. Eventually, a guy took my name and said he would hold me a case. Just called today. Said they had gotten it in and all sold out. Nothing for me. I knew it was too good to be true. Would have been better if he hadn't offered in the first place. So now 61 BrewThru it is.

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.
