They have a good selection of micros here; however, do not even bother asking them to special order something for you, or call you when a shipment arrives. They have told me on three different occasions on three different seasonal beers that they would be carrying that they would call me when it came in . . . . . . each time, I call back a few weeks later and get the disappointing news that the beer, in limited quantities, has already come and gone, with NO CALL to me. I will be finding a different distributor to use for my special orders of $100+/- per case beers!!! Moreover, the oldish women who answers the phone is completely unfriendly!

Cappelli's is a solid beer store. They carry a lot of German lagers, Belgian brews, American micros (including locals/Pennsylvania breweries), and macros (if that's your thing).

This is also the only beer store in the area that I know of that carries Bohemia (German pilsner from Mexico).

Prices are average for the area (around $30-32 case out the door for a solid micro).

The employees are nice enough and sometimes ask if they can help.

Next time I buy from Cappelli's I'm probably going with a variety pack from Church Brew Works or Bell's Amber Ale.

wish they would get rid of some of the junk food and use those shelves for singles like the Rogue selections. Also would be nice if they had a "create your own 6 Pack" selection.

How in the world am I going to come up w/ another 300 words to make this comment take? That is a stupid requirement by Beer Advocate but I guess I will have to play the game.

I went to school 5 minutes from this place and never ever considered it as a place to obtain great craft beer, but I was very wrong. I have constantly been blown away by their selection and the things they are able to get in. Evrything is extremely reasonably priced and some great deals can be found. With the exception of those in charge of the beer inventory, the employees aren't the most knowledgable or the most helpful, but odds are they will try their best to do what they can for you.

If you, for whatever reason, are in Washington, PA and need a case of delicious beer, this is THE place to go.

Seems that people need to revisit this place. I stopped in yesterday to find the largest selection of Belgian imports that I have seen anywhere - i picked up a case of Gouden Carolus Noel and it was very reasonably priced. The craft/microbrew selection was very nice as well - Victory, Bell's, Weyerbacher, Flying Dog, Heavy Seas, Dogfish Head, etc. Don't be fooled by the candy aisle that you must walk through upon entering the store. After you make the left at the end of the candy aisle keep going straight and you will find the Belgians. Don't expect to be in here for less than 20 minutes.

I stopped in a Cappelli's and The Beer Store on my way from Ohio into Pittsburgh.

In Pennsylvania you have places that sell cases and places that sell by the bottle. My experience with the case places is they don't offer the exceptional quality that I was after (specifically Voodoo and East End). Cappelli's was the better of the two case stores in Washington. If you're looking to pick up a large volume of very good beer available in western PA, this would be a good stop. Troegs, Victory, Weyerbacher.. all brands I can get in Ohio so it didn't offer a whole lot for me.

Cappelli's is located not far off of the Jefferson Avenue exit on Rt 70. It is one of the better distributors in the area as their selection is above average, but what is there doesn't seem to be organized in any fashion. I have also run into some bottles that were past their best by date (from the admittedly aggressive with those dates Great Lakes). Selection is this place's best asset, and prices are reasonable as well. Unfortunately thanks to our heavily regulated alcohol industry in PA, you are limited to cases of 24, and there really aren't that many I would put 24 down in a reasonable amount of time. Can't fault this place for that law.

Cappelli's is located on Jefferson Ave not too far off I-70. They have a small private lot on the side of the building that seems to be shared with a laundy mat.

The interior appears to be a convenience store until you go around the first corner and see row after row filled with cases of beer.

As mentioned, there is not a denomination of beer smaller than a 12-pack. This is detrimental if you want to sample different beers but luckily there are some variety packs available. The beers are somewhat categorized geographically. There are beers available from Church, Iron City, Tröegs, Yuengling, Bell's, GLBC etc domestically. As for imports they have a few selections from around the globe.

Service is pretty standard, nobody went out of their way to ask what I was looking for but they were available for questions.

Overall I would probably stop here again based on proximity to the interstate and availability of samplers from PA brewers.

Cappelli's always has a nice selection of brews, including macros, micros, and imports. They usually have at least a few sampler packs from different breweries, such as Flying Dog and Saranac. They have a fairly decent selection of insular imports, especially my favorite, the Scottish Historic Pack.

Service is fine. No one typically asks you if you need help, but if you go up to the counter they'll take care of you.

It's also a little closer to where I live than Pittsburgh, and is right off of the interstate. so the location is excellent for me. It's always clean and is well worth a stop.
