WOW! buy your beer here if you want to be ignored by staff, and treated like crap. my husband stopped by a week ago and was completely ignored by the staff who where to busy watching a sports game to even let him know his total. then today i stopped by to get a case and when i asked the cashier to please bring my case to the car, he put it on the counter and said someone can come get it. (meaning my hubby who was waiting in the car) so i replied "nice customer service, i wont be coming here for beer anymore" he told me to not come for cigarettes either. needless to say everyone should boycott this rude and impersonal distributor.

NOTE: This is a duplicate listing and should be deleted. Therefor this also is a duplicate post; but I want searchers looking at the *Two* not threes brewers outlet locations in Lancaster to see my review of this place. They have really stepped up their game recently and deserve credit.

Todd, please delete this review when you merge it with the correct listing "Brewer's Outlet" at the same address.


For years I lived very close to this Brewer's Outlet and was a regular here. They have really great prices on sodas and often they various sales on their beers (Macros). So it is inexpensive. However, I have since become BA and a fan of micro brews. I now realize that their microbrew selection is limited. Still, they have vary good macros like Guinness Extra Stout and McEwan's Scotch Ale (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/342/1275/), which are not available everywhere. I have now learned of places around here with a much better selection, like Wheatland Distributors (on the other side of town though). The atmosphere is a bit rugged / warehouse feel. Unfinished concrete floors, a bit crowded feeling etc. The staff are also a bit rough around the edges but very good people none the less. Overall, this is a suitable average quality beer distributor.

They were good enough to get a couple cases of hedonism for me. Thanks guys! So even though a large percentage of their selection is macros, they are nice and helpful with finding some craft beers here and there.


WOW! Brewer's Outlet is really stepping up the game this is impressive. Since the last time I was here they converted nearly half the store to micros and craft imports. I thought I was stopping by my local BMC dealer (distributor) with the intension of picking up some cheap fresh bud (well Coors actually Blue Moon Belgian White for the Mrs) and they had completely revamped the place. Even the staff was excited about it and they started talking about the local micro-breweries and the mix cases and I was very pleased to see. Most of the selection is PA or import but PA has a lot of breweries and while Brewer's Outlet is no Westy's, I commend them for the massive improvements.

Hope this is helpful.

This is your typical Pennsylvania beer distributer trying to get into the micro market in a small way. They stock some of the Eastern Pennsylvania micro brews (Victory, Troegs)., but their stock is really very minimal when compared to Wheatland or some of the other distributers in Lancaster. I agree with Phatz on all of the points he discussed. Somewhat rough is a good way to describe this establishment. Might be worthwhile to stop in if you are in the area, but not worth going out of your way. Nothing special.
