Easy off the highway, we stopped in here for a few bombers and a look see on the way down to Charlotte, NC

Modern, lacking in character and very clean sort of place, you can drive through to pick up some quality brews (always a fun option). Growler filling takes place up front. They will fill whatever growler you bring in, according to the friendly guy doing the filling.

Tons of bottles, mostly in the rear cooler units.
Others have mentioned the lack of prices on the bottles.

Selection is huge. Most of the stuff seemed to be widely available (at least for me coming from NY state) but you surely will find plenty of quality options.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area and would be a obvious choice for the locals

Great spot that is well beyond any other option in the Chambersburg area. Large open layout with coolers lines up and filled with quite a bit of different stuff. Some of it is pretty macro, but the majority is not. Lots of taps; also with good stuff and a nice variety. I found Deschutes Black Butte XXVI here, which was a nice surprise. As it looks like I will now be spending a fair portion of time in Chambersburg, I will be coming back here often.

The best tip I can give you is that if you do want to check this place out, the location on Google Maps is incorrect (do not go up 696 you'll end up at a gravel dumping pit of sorts). The address is actually in town on Orchard Drive (not Road).

That being said, it's a very clean and well spaced out location with lots of parking. The store gives the impression though there is a huge variety, but to some degree it does lack. Foreign imports are menial, and the craft selection is mostly local, but with that you will find some PA beers such as Chambersburg's own Roy Pitz, Allentown Breworks, Stouds, and so forth. Definitely would not find the elsewhere.

However, the craft selection is mostly small, and devoted to their mix a 6 selection which goes for $14 dollars a pack (just remember to pick from the blue shelves). Of course domestic is $8.50 a pack but that doesn't mean the local stuff counts right? yeah we all know... There's also very few six packs or bombers.

There is however numerous tap items that are available for growler fills, but there wasn't anything I was seriously excited to grab. Service is quite knowledgeable and friendly, and I am sure there's a ton of cases of certain items also.

I wouldn't come out of my way just to go here, but it's a good place to know about if you happen to be passing by. If I happen to be in the area or passing by I would easily stop by again.

Popped in here while visiting a friend who lives in the area- had been here a while back but it appears that they've expanded with outdoor seating and also an extended covered seated section where the drive through used to be...

In the area, there's not much better in terms of selection, which is also probably why they are a little bit on the higher side of things price-wise in the bottle shop portion of the establishment (nothing is labeled, so make sure you ask before buying- we were a bit stunned at a ~$20 six pack!). Good selection on the taps, nice option to be able to make your own flights (some beers with slight upcharges). Prices per pint / growler seemed to be in line with the norm.

This place is great. Only down fall is that it's kind of hidden in a Business / Industrial park. One of the BEST 6 pack selections in Pennsylvania. They carry bottles of everything from bottom barrel Natural Light to top of the world beers from around the globe. BIG micro / craft selection from across PA and the US as well. They have several flat screen TV's, live music, and plenty of beer tastings. Jokingly, don't go in on Sunday during a Ravens / Steelers Game...gets a little nuts. If you are visiting or vacationing in Gettysburg, take the extra 1/2 hour drive and check it out. You WON'T be disappointed.

*On a funny note: They also have a Drive-Through or in PA commonly known as a "Brew Through"!!!

Located right off of Route 81, we checked out this place on the way back home from Virginia to Massachusetts.

Drive thru liquor store, yes please. They also have a serving bar for drafts, 22's, sixers, and make a six pack area. A lot of hard to find beers and locals ones too. The quality was good and they had around 30 kegs for sampling and growler fills too. The prices were average to a bit pricey, but well worth it to me. Got a limited edition double IPA from Blue Point and a triple IPA from a small locally brewery for growler fills. The gentleman at the counter were very helpful and gave us a card to make any special orders next time we were driving through. Pretty happy to have found this base and a stop for anybody driving through the area.

Stopped in the other day when i was in the area. Has both a drive through and a store section. Store section was decent sized, a front part with a few tables and high stools if you wanted to eat and have a drink. A few plasma screens were also in the area. I was there for 6 packs to go, so i immediately headed towards the deli coolers.

Walking towards the back, there is an entire wall of deli coolers along the left side and along the back wall. Filled with numerous 6-packs as well as a ton of singles along the back wall. They encourage making a mix a six pack. Great selection of beers, lots of locals (Lancaster, Troegs, Weyerbacher, Victory) and others (Bells, Founders, Stone, CigarCity). What caught my eye, and what i was looking for was the Founders breakfast stout. In fact, out of all the places i went to in Chambersburg, this was the only place that had FBS, very fresh at the time, so mad props to them.

I didn't have a beer or food here, since i was trying to hit a number of establishments that day. But they had a large number of beers on tap, and they all looked great. No idea about the food, but i think i saw something about hot dogs.

All in all, a great place. Reminded me a lot of Al's in Hampden located outside Harrisburg, just more selection and less emphasis on food. Highly recommend if you want to try a lot of different beers.
