Large store that is very easy to navigate around. The staff isn't the most helpful staff in the world but they aren't bad either. They aren't up to date on the most recent dates of release. The interior of the store is you standard selections, the buds, coors, and millers of the world. They also have a large selection of Sam Adams and local beers on the inside of the store as well. Around the outside of the store though they have cases of a lot of good beers you normally don't see cases of around here. Chimay, Delerium, and other high end cases can be found in this area. A very good selection.

Stopped by in May to buy a few cases for a beer trade. I was pleased with the selection they had there and the prices weren't too bad. However, one of the cases I bought ended up being past the best by date (didn't realize until later) and skunked. Called management but they were unwilling to do anything to help me out. Decent craft selection, mainly those you can find most places in PA. Large open store, but no service at all. The only person I could find was working at the check-out, and was not very knowledgeable.

This is a very large distributor with food, tobacco and beer.

It has your standard BMC's but they also have a nice selection of craft beer along the back 3 rows and along the back wall. There is a decent amount of local beers, PA, Domestic and some Belgian beers.

Prices are pretty much what you can expect for PA. Recently bought a Mad Elf case for $52.99+tax. The is expected as prices were similar in Harrisburg on recent visit.

If you are searching for a case of craft beer, this place has a really nice selection.

I drove 70 miles down to Save on Beer this Black Friday. The store is pretty big. Large selection of seasonals Brooklyn Black Chocolate,Monster Ale,Victory Old Horizonal, Storm King, Great Lakes Chistmas Ale. Most Weyerbachers, Founders, Troegs including Mad Elf, some Great Divide. Most SN, Magic Hat, Otter Creek, Woleavers, Southern Tier, Erie, Church Brew Works. It has a great selection of what is a available here in PA. I got a case of Victory St. Boisterous and a 5 liter mini keg of Hofbrau Octoberfest. No one offered to help me but then I really didnt need any help.

I go here sometimes on my way back to Boardman, Ohio from Pittsburgh, where I work.. I also just "discovered" the place. There are a good amount of micros in the warehouse. Troegs, Victory, Long Trail, Penn, Lancaster, Erie, Sierra Nevada, Great Lakes, Dogfishead, just to name a few. The folks are friendly and will help you out in a pinch. I find that buying that case of beer may save you 4 to 5 bucks against buying sixers or singles in Ohio. The only drawback, of course, is possibly trying a new beer you aren't crazy for. I believe, without a doubt, that if you ask the folks at Save on Beer for a special case, they would provide it for you.

This is right up the street outside of the suburban hell of Cranberry Twp. I just started going here and the quality is very good. The place is clean and organized with a large selection of micros, imports, ciders, malt liquor, macros and everything else you would need for a party. The guys and gals working there are knowledgeable and now whats in stock and when they will be getting more. The prices are average for the area and selection. Its a great place to stop for your party needs or for that newly released, hyped seasonal that you can't get enough of. I don't normally buy cases, but when I do I go here.

Wow, I could not believe the selection of micros in cases here. Simply amazing.... and the help was very knowledgable about their beer! Whenever I am in Cranberry on business, I always stop here and grab 3 or 4 cases of the best IPA's they have. The last time I was there, I scored some Green Flash IPA, which is one of my faves, but cannot get in New York, so it really made my day! Also found some great imports also that you almost never see in cases, such as Rochefort, Corsendonk, etc... A can't miss beer store!

Large warehouse style located near the Sheraton right off I-79 in Mars/Cranberry area. I stopped in to get directions to Hereford and Hops cute chica at the register helped me with that and then I took a look around...hey I'm in a beer store why not. Great selection of brands micro and imports, but I don't want to buy the whole case what do ya mean I have to buy the whole case...oh yeah that's old news PA case laws sorry folks until that changes this place is only catering to the masses but I appreciate the selection. If there's something out there micro wise I want a whole case I will keep you in mind however freshness dates will be checked it's probably to stock that kind of selection and keep it moving. Overall very comparable to the other locale on McKnight Rd., I'm not hating just presenting the fact that there is another Save On Beer out this way.
