3.6/5  rDev n/a

I used to live less than 2 miles from here and came here for some beers for guests to have since I had only a little homebrew on hand. The place is set up well, they have a clean interior, things are labeled and easy to find and the cooler while small, still has plenty of imports and craft instead of just BMC.

The people running the register are able to give the kind of I expect from a case store and I didn't go asking for special orders so I didn't test them too much. I consider the selection pretty decent for the area since they had some recent seasonals it shows they rotate the stock. I would stop in here for a case if I was in the area, but there are place with just as good prices and better selection that I prefer.

Part of the review has to do with the unfortunate reality of PAs liquor laws.

Atmosphere is pretty much barren. It's all case only. Which means some real simple things. One, the shelves are filled with little selection, and with products that take up too much space and not enough variety. No bombers, no sixers etc... and a bunch of simple white shelves. You can browse the store and its selection in about 5 minutes flat.

There is some selection here but nothing you can't find anything perhaps on the East coast. The lack of beers from places like Voodoo, et all or smaller producers from PA is obvious. Sure cases of Stone Ruination, Bells Two Hearted fine, but you aren't going to get anything special here, and as for foreign beer selection, forget it.

The good thing here is the staff is nice. In fact they are very helpful and will answer any questions, or help you out in some way to try to get what you need. If you probably live in the area, this is probably a step up to shop here because of the law and the abundance of BMC outlets.

Prices are fairly reasonable but that's because you are buying in bulk. That being said though, this isn't a place to make a detour for something real special. But if you are somehow stuck in the area with no other options, yeah I'll grab a case and suck it up.

In my opinion this is the best distributor in York. There is a younger guy that works there (I think his name is Carl) and he is in charge of the craft section. They have a decent craft section for their size along with some seasonal that are usually on display when you walk in the store. I have never been in the cooler so I can't speak for the cold selection but one of the other reviews stated the selection was decent. They are always willing to look up prices and are very helpful when asking for suggestions. They do get some hard to get beers but if they get them it is only 1 case. They have also suggested bottle shops in the area when they know there is something that I am looking for that they do not have. This place is conveniently located on my way home from work and I will continue to shop there because of the employees and the environment.

Unless I'm out of town, I buy all my beer here.
The guys are great, always willing to talk beer.

They have been improving the selection/service of craft beers for awhile now. They even put the BA review of each beer with style / ABV # etc on the case. Great way to sell help people who want to venture out but aren't sure what to get.

Been going here for years and I can always find something new or a good old standard craft beer.
They get a good amount of seasonals in too.

Beer selections include
Victory, Troegs, Dogfish, Appalachian Brewing Co, Stoudts, Rogue, Erie Brewing, Saranac, North Point, Fort Collins Brewing, Bells, Shipyard, Weyerbacher, Smuttynose and many more.
