Epps has a good selection of craft beers if you are looking for something specific or browsing for something new to try. Epps has been around for along time, but the current location is new so it's the best distributor atmosphere you will find in the area. The owner was very helpful and hunted down a hard to find case of DFH Bitches Brew for me. Then the price ended up being very reasonable compared to what I heard other were paying in the Philly area. Overall you can't go wrong here on price and service. If you need something special ask, you will not be disappointed!!

located right on Ridge Pike with limited parking so people get creative so just watch out.

their selection of craft brew is pretty good, considering that most customers post-work on a Friday are carrying out 30 racks of BMC. The have a good selection of both local, regional, and country-wide craft US breweries. Plus they have a section of European imports, with most of the quality British, German, and Belgian brands represented.

Staff is friendly and I assume is family run, as the same polite and friendly people are usually running the cash register.

On the non-beer front, they also carry flats of the local A-Treat soda, a personal favorite of mine.

Family owned and around for years, Been going here since I was old enough to buy beer legally. Always well stocked with local craft beers such as Victory, troegs, weyerbacher and Stoudts, including their seasonals and special releases. A fair selection of crafts for around the country, but if there is something you want, they are always glad to special order it without a huge mark-up.
Also a good selection of imports. Prices are always reasonable, Epps will continue to be my go-to distributor...

I've been stopping in here on and off for the past three years. The selection of craft beers is decent, but if you're looking for really hard to find cases you'd be better heading to a specialty location. However, there's a always a good selection of locals - Sly Fox, Weyerbacher (including seasonals and special releases), Penn Brewing, etc., plus Brooklyn, Stone, and some German and English imports. Staff is helpful if asked and case prices are about equivalent to the local competition. A solid distributor when you're looking for a decent case.

Located on Ridge Pike in Limerick.

This is a family owned distributor that has been around for many years. I have been buying beer from them for over 15 years. The place is run by John and Carol, both of whom are excellent people.

Q: Their quality of beer is excellent, things are always fresh.

S: Their service is again excellent, always taking care of whatever you need. If they do not have it in stock, they will order it for you. I have gotten hard to find sixtels there, so they do have the resources behind them.

S: Their only downside is the selection of craft brews is on the lighter side. They do have a good selection of Stones beers and of course all the local brewed beers. They do carry some of the other quality breweries such as Bells, Brooklyn and a few others but their selection for those are limited.

V: Very reasonably priced.

Overall they are a solid beer distributor who takes care of their customers. I was born and raised in that area and they have been there for years, a sign that they are a quality operation.
