I have been shopping at Westy's since around the time I found out about craft beer in the 90's and they have consistently been the place to go for the best selection in the Harrisburg area.

I have purchased some good beer in the closeout section as well as Belgians and Micro's from the west coast and down the street in Hbg. The service is always great, they go out of their way to check prices or availability of beers and won't hesitate to chat about quality beer.

I have never had a problem with the quality of any beer I have purchased from Westy's and I have been going there for years. I recently went to Westy's with my brother who wanted a Croatian pils and it was also found to be in good shape.

The selection is the main reason I choose to go there, but they have very reasonable prices. I have purchased DFH Burton Baton, Gouden Carolus and a number of Bell's beer and the selection is always rotating.

I don't think you can find many distributors in PA that know their stuff or care about the product as well as Westy's, nor will you find many of the ales available elsewhere nearby.

Service was excellent and selection incredible. We lived in PA from 2003 - 2006 and was really disappointed with the selection after moving from California. Just bought my husband a kegerater for his birthday and can't wait to try all the different beers Westy's offers.

I rated quality at 3.5 because some of the cases are randomly strewn about without pricing. If you do not ask for help it may take some time to find what you are looking for.

I rated the service at a low 2.5 because I was neither greeted nor treated any better than I would be at McDonald's. I tried to have a conversation while being checked out (90$ spent) and neither person seemed interested in talking to me. Now I know there could be different people working there at different times (and I only went once, just yesterday actually) but I would hope that workers would have a little interest in some conversation with a customer spending a little bit of coin. When I had asked the two people working if they knew anywhere I could get Russian River beers in the area (I know for certain they are obtainable in Philly and Pittsburgh, as I have had them there) they became offended and began speaking condescendingly that it was impossible to get in PA, completely. I told them that I have had it in PA and both workers looked at me like I had three heads. I did not mean any offense nor was I speaking pompously or pretentiously, I was asking very nicely about it. Although I may seem over-sensitive, I don't think anyone would enjoy being treated as such when spending near 100$ in any store.

The only reason to go here is, as you can gleam from the other reviews, is the incredible selection. Although only cases are available, I refuse to hold that against the store. The selection is the best I have ever seen. It is a shame, however, that there is no Founder's selection at all. The person working there told me it is impossible to get in the area blah blah blah. I know for certain you can get Founder's in the Drive Thru distributor next to the Walmart in Carlisle so if you don't mind going out of your way, it is in the area. Anyway, I do, overall, recommend going to this distributor. They could have trolls and ogres working there and I would still go for the selection alone and good pricing.

I don't know what to expect/look for in atmosphere beyond obvious qualities like well-lit, tolerable temperature, etc. so a 3 is fair. It's a big warehouse. Maybe they could play some music?
