A: It's a beer distributor, what do you want?

Q: Once in a while you see an old case of beer sitting around, but it is most always tagged as a clearance and marked down.

S: Most of the guys are friendly. There are even a few craft beer-heads on staff who will have a conversation with you and suggest beers you might like.

S: They get a wide variety of craft beers which is pretty good considering they are a fairly small operation. If they don't have it, they will order it for you (if available).

F: Munchies are available, plus you can get a wide variety of non-alcoholic drinks at good prices (I always buy my tonic water there b/c the price is the best around). Also, they have a modest, but quality selection of cigars.

V: Prices are not the lowest around, but they are fairly reasonable.

Overall the best distributor in the Lehigh Valley

Great selection of beers. Lots of local breweries such as Weyerbacher and Fegley Brew Works. The biggest reason why I shop here is the selection of 1/6 kegs is probably one of the best in the Valley. They also have some home-brew accessories and grains as well.

This place has an excellent selection of beer, and is one of my two favorite places in the area to buy beer.

The workers here are great and have always been helpful whenever I had questions. This was one of the first places to carry Weyerbacher beer, and I still have the Weyerbacher pint glass they gave away to anyone buying their beer when they first cam out over 10 years ago. I've also liked when they had other local brewers in giving samples (like Bethlehem Brew Works).

The location is about 15 minutes from my house. Between the short drive and the large selection, I go there most often when buying beer.

Stopped in here a little while ago and grabbed some Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA. The place looks small from outside but they really have a rather large selection of stuff in there. The place looks clean and well kept. The lighting was decent, The place was pretty quiet for the most part. Good selection of carft and mainstream beers as well as some home brewing supplies and snacks. The service was ok, nothing to brag about really but it wasn't a bad experience. This is a pretty impressive place, it's got a large enough selection that it could keep me from having to drive all the way to Emmaus to get something at Shangy's in the future. I would check this place out if you're in the need of something a little special or just for some normal crap.

Great place for cases in the Lehigh Valley. Friendly service with a nice selection of craft and imports. Lots of solid offerings here, but nothing too crazy. Very clean well kept establishment. Everything is nicely organized and the staff is always willing to help.

Ommegang, Duvel, Chimay, Bell's, St. Bernardus are just some of the highlights. If your a fan of Belgian beer then this a real solid stop for ya.

Cases only here. PA state law. Welcome to the commonwealth. One of the most wacky alcohol states in the country.

Of all the places in the Lehigh Valley, this ranks as one of my two favorite stops. Tanczos isn't big, but they do cater to every variety of beer heads - from the Bud drinkers to the craft brew folks, they have something you'll probably like. I'm a craft brew drinker and I've been able to find things that other places in the valley doesn't have. The draw for me is the Harpoon beers (Leviathan Series), which are hard to get around here. The folks at Tanczos are very helpful and whenever I'm in Bethlehem, I'll usually stop here to see if there's anything new. Check 'em out.

I stopped by Tanczos on my way to Weyerbacher with the sole purpose of picking up some Nugget Nectar. I was able to get that and more. I ended up with two cases of Nugget Nectar ($34 each) and when I saw the Double Simcoe for $39, I couldn't pass it up. Overall, the store is well organized with prices listed for most products. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was also a clearance area with some cases missing a bottle or two at a reduced price and I spotted a few cases of Victory Festbier for $15.99. You will find brands such as Founders, Bells, Middle Ages, Southern Tier, Ithaca, DFH, Troegs, etc. The store is very easy to get to from Route 22. Worth a stop if you are in the area.
