All I can say is WOW. Showroom is huge and very well lit. I really liked how everything was organized. Easy to walk the aisles and browse the huge selection. Since it is PA you are stuck buying a full case but the selection did not disappoint. Lots of variety cases to choose from if you can’t make up your mind. All the PA craft brewers were represented (Troegs, Lancaster, Yards, Stoudts, Victory, etc). A large variety of imports too. The place is really easy to get to off of I-78 in Emmaus. I will definitely visit again and recommend to anyone making the trip up/down I-78 thru Allentown. Almost all of the cases were marked with prices which was really nice. I also really liked the Shangy’s tasting notes placed around for certain beers so you could get their opinion on some of the brews.

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"!
