5/5  rDev +12.1%
quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 5

A beer superstore. An amazing selection of micros, imports, glassware, bar signs, lamps, and specialty snack foods in a new, clean, well lit ESTABLISHMENT. Emphasis on the word ESTABLISHMENT. This is not the concrete floor, cheap cigars at the counter, cigarette ad laden, dirty, cold, musty, rat hole most beer distributors in PA are. The staff is knowledgable, friendly, and eager to help. In all my trips to Shangys I have never left there without having at least two SMILING people ask me if I needed help.

I highly recommend Shangys to anyone, anywhere. It is worth the trip.

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"!
