Visited here on 2010-04-17

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.

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"!
