While the value is reasonable and this is one of the few distributors with any kind of micro and local selection, this Beer Arena is shamed by it's much larger cousin in Greensburg. The micros are all in one section but don't seem to be organized any further than that, and many appear to have sat longer than they should. The Great Lakes samplers that I looked at were well past their best by date.

Service was passable, but I didn't really engage so I can't complain.

Prices are about average for the area. Only shop here because it is the closest distributor to my home with Micros.

Not the best and not the worst beer store I've ever been to in PA.

The staff was polite at check-out, but no one ever came around to ask if there was anything I needed or wanted.

Decent selection of micro/craft/import brews. Dogfish Head, Weyerbacher, Stone, etc. Nothing very esoteric, not many mixed packs, but you can find a few nice beers from each style.

Prices are pretty much the same as every other beer store in Pennsylvania. There were no specials, but the prices were't jacked up, either.

It was a good place to stop by on the way to the Ren Faire.
