It's mainly a grocery store. Of the ONLY 2 or 3 stores to buy beer in small-town Lewisburg PA (where the alcohol laws are ridicluous), this one you can at least buy small quantities of beer with decent selection. The other option is the "Beer Barn" where you HAVE TO buy beer buy cases of 24- dont really get to experiment with diff beers and drop $30+ at a time. This is probably the sanest place to buy around here.

The Weis has some craft beers on back wall and normal stuff (BMC) facing fruits/vegetables, but prices are ridiculous here. 12 pk bottles are average price of $20. In Virginia, I could buy a 12 pk at Kroger ranging from Landshark ($10) to Sam Adams, Magic Hat, Sierra Nevada for around $13. Maybe they just have a thing against selling glass bottles? Victory's Golden Monkey is reasonable price, and the Chimays are similarly priced as elsewhere. Have individual 750 mL bottles of higher quality brews near the windows/Cafe seating with craft beers. This is the only place I've seen 40's at, also can get Smirnoff/ciders for gf here, at prices comparable to ones in VA.

It's annoying to buy here because you have to buy the beer in a separate section from where you buy groceries (at the Cafe). Tried to checkout at register and they sent me to the Cafe. This makes it annoying if you're also picking up food items while here. Can't get wine in the store (or in any PA stores), have to go to liquor store for that- unlike VA where you could buy wine in grocery stores for your meal.

This is the Weis that is likely closest to corporate headquarters; located on I-15 just north of PA-192.

Quality: The store is a supermarket, so anything foodwise is only a few aisles away. The beer section is along the northern side, nearest to the cafe. Beer is aligned in a cooler (approximately 8 doors) and shelves on the opposite side (again approximating 8 cooler doors in length). Possibly a flagship store for Weis Markets.

Service: None solicited and none received.

Selection: Across the coolers and shelves I noted Ommegang, Long Trail, Dundee, Bavarian Barbarian, Stone, Yeungling, Troegs, and Leinenkuegels. A decent selection both in single bottle and sixpack format, including 22 oz Sam Adams bottles that I've never seen anywhere else.
