I have been to Shangy's twice now and am planning another trip for this weekend. This place is amazing! I will not shop for craft beer by the case anywhere else. They have the best prices, most knowlegeable staff, and an outstanding selection including alot of rare or hard to find brews. Plenty of variety cases also if you just cant decide on one single case of beer. They also have place reviews out of certain beers, giving you their review of certain beers. If in the area I would strongly suggest making the trip.

Big store. Lots of selection. Prices reasonable. BUT DO NOT BUY ANYTHING ON SALE. They are locally just as famous for selling outdated stanky beer as they are for their selection and low prices. They also hate when you try to return anything. Additionally the staff, while helpful, are not well versed in their products.

Was a fan of this place. Called for almost a month looking for founders harvest ale. Was always polite on the phone. Eventually, a guy took my name and said he would hold me a case. Just called today. Said they had gotten it in and all sold out. Nothing for me. I knew it was too good to be true. Would have been better if he hadn't offered in the first place. So now 61 BrewThru it is.

Best beer store in the Lehigh Valley area. Great selection of craft beer from the US and all over the world. The staff is very knowledgeable about beer and are always willing to find something for you if you don't feel like wandering around aimlessly in search of a certain brew. They have both bottles and kegs available and they are both retail and wholesale. Highly Recommend checking this place out if you are in the area.

I have mixed feelings about Shangy's. I've had both: my share of good times and bad.

The positives:

The is a huge selection of beer from around the world
Quite a few employees working if you need help
Reasonable prices.

The negatives:

Run like a business...doesn't have that warm, welcome feeling I like when I go to other distributors
Ownership can be rude at times
Lot of beer also means lot of out dated beer. Watch for the skunked beer.
Tough to find many of the smaller, local craft brews

Overall I have stopped going to Shangy's and have enjoyed shopping for my beer elsewhere.
