I usually stop in to this place whenever I'm looking to get a large case of craft beer. They have a pretty damn good selection at hand. They also have the basics, of course.

Atmosphere: Just your average warehouse style beer store, nothing special.

Quality: The quality of their products is very good, I've never had anything from there that was bad or tasted old.

Service: The service is pretty good, the employees working the floor will often stop and ask if you need any help, and everyone is pretty nice.

Selection: They have a great selection of craft beers and the like. The next time I go there I plan to get a case of Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA and a case of Young's Double Chocolate Stout. They also have all the cheap beers, naturally.

Value: Some beers are a bit pricey for what they are, mainly the usual everyday beers. However, the selection of great beer here really makes it worth it.

Figured after my most recent visit it was time to do a review before I forgot again to do one.

This place is in a super-convenient location if you need or want to combine a beer shopping trip with a trip to the Acme Supermarket for food or to the Home Depot for house-hold supplies or maintenance stuff.

It’s a farily large warehouse type location (but that’s true for many retail distributors in PA) with multiple shelving units to increase storage space.so that not everything is on the floor or on pallets.

They have a good range of beers on offer and many of the things I checked were well within their freshness date range (I don't buy undated beer and so don't bother with things that are not dated or datable in some way).

The folks who work there are helpful and seem to know enough to answer questions about the stock or when something might be available. Also the web site indicates that if a beer gets into PA they will get it for you if they don't have it. While I've never put them to the test on this I know from other places where I do business that they should be able to deliver on that promise without a really long wait or more than one return visit.

While I didn't bring a price comparison list it was my impression that some of the stuff I was interested in and thinking about was a dollor or two more than what might be found elsewhere but that doesn't bother me as it isn't a big price difference on a case and I'm not a big fan of shopping around for the best price on a case of beer just to save a dollar or two. Obviously if I find later I've really overpaid compared to other places I shop then I just buy less in the future or cross a store off my shopping list.

I don't get to Clifton Heights regularly so a visit here is an occasional thing, but I could see this being a regular stopping/shopping place if I lived nearby.
