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.

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.
