This place is in my hometown area so I decided to give it a whirl. I knew where the pantry quik was but....wait a minute there's beer next door now? A lot can happen over 5-10 years.
In any event, I believe I met a cat there who is either the owner or at least the purchaser of the beer for the store. He was very knowledgable and ultra friendly. In fact, he told me to pick up Hair of the Dog - Adam while I was there which it turns out is pretty rare out in these parts. I was pretty excited to learn that fact from bamadog.
For the Hazleton area, the selection is just phenomenal. I imagine the rotation will vary depending on what's selling but they had a ton of beers that I had a lot of interest in. Prices weren't the cheapest I've seen but the quality of the beer seems to command a higher price. Definately worth a stop.

I have been going to the beer stop for years. I grew up in Hazleton and stop there every time I visit my parents. The selection of singles is great and once in a while you will find a rarity mixed in. The price is very reasonable too. I met the owner a few times and he knows and enjoys craft beer. Support your local beer store and not the grocery stores!

Great place locally to pick up hard to find brews, buy them in 4 packs, 6 packs or individual bottles or cans...now serving growlers!
In the Hazleton, PA area there are practically no pubs that serve craft brews. You must drive 30 minutes or more to find some excellent brew pubs! Thankfully, we have the Beer Stop. They provide a fantastic selection of craft brews and now are filling 32 oz disposable growlers and 64 oz refillable growlers! This Beer Stop is just that. It's not a pub, it's attached to a convenient store, so it's pick-up only. Overall, a fantastic place to pick and choose the brew of your choice!

Living in Hazleton, PA it was always hard to find some good microbrews, a fews spots carried the basic Sierra Nevada, Saranac, but nothing really good.
Then along came the Beer Stop in West Hazleton. Anyone in the NEPA area that love's micro's definetely has to stop here. He has an awesome selections of micros including all the major hitter, good selection of belgians and of course a bunch of limited release beers.
Single, Sixers, 750's he has them all. If you are a beer nerd this is one place you have to check out.
Finding Dogfishead 120 and Brooklyn Blackops in Hazleton is almost unheard of until now.
Now also filling growlers.

My friend and I stopped by this store while heading back toward northeast Alabama from a road trip. Where we are from, there are no stores in a forty mile radius that carry microbrew beer.
This store has a great selection of six-pack and single beer. They are all reasonably priced as well.
The owner was present and came off as a friendly guy who really knew his beer. He made several great beer recommendations to try and also had us engaged in some informational beer conversations. He even carried the highest rated beer in the world along with an interesting story behind it.
We came out satisfied customers with a small cache of beer never before seen in our corner of Alabama. This is by far the best beer store we have set foot in.

Stopped off while down in the area visiting family. Beer Stop was attached to a little grocery store on the side of the road. Wasnt too hard to get to. I checked the place out on BeerAdvocate for a while and finally got a chance to go.
The selection was awesome. Alot of craft singles to your left when you first walk in. And ratings of the beers are posted everywhere. I bought of couple Mikkeller brews, Troegs, Founders, Ballast Point, and a milk stout from Landcaster Brewing which i havent tried yet. There was plenty of selection in the singles, and also six packs.
The service was not as others described. There was only one elderly woman working who did not know about the beers.
I will be going back when im down in that area again.
Overall, it was a good beer shop with a selection of fresh craft brews which made me happy.

Very nondescript place. You'd never know pulling up what's inside. Small, but very good selection of single bottles and also solid selection of sixers. Nice selection of Belgians and other harder to find craft brews. Saw Black Albert there last time I was there, Rochefort, Orval, Westmalle, etc, some Bruery, Alesmith, Lost Abbey, Hopslam, gets KBS. Seems to have a nice rotating selection. The owner Alan is a great guy, very nice and knowledgeable, but not always there. He's given me recommendations a few times for less expensive beers that he thinks are better than higher priced ones he has of the same style. Prices are the most reasonable of any of the places I've gone for bottles in the area. This is definitely my go to bottle shop in the area.

This place is definetly a go to when I'm up in that area. They have a lot of singles ranging from Founders to Lost Abbey to Victory and many many other fine craft brews. Too many to list but you get the idea. Plus he also has a good selection from other beer countries like Germany, Belgium, and England. He's always getting new stuff in and the guy that runs the place knows his fair share about beer.
This place is really easy to miss while driving by. It is right behind a gas station and parking can be a bit crowded at times because the lot is pretty narrow. But all in all this place has good beer at good prices and I happily drop by when I have the chance to.

This my goto spot for craft brew beers. They have a pretty good selection from the big Guys to the small guys. Sometimes even get beers that don't normally make it to the east coast. The best thing I like about the place that you can buy Single bottles which there not many places around that do that. I like to buy a bottle to try it instead of putting the money out on a six to twelve or a case of a beer that I might not like.
Price seem reasonable. And Hazleton is a drinking Mecca but finding love for the craft brew companies.
And I'm enjoying it every time I go.
