Only 8 taps but they rotate often and bring in some really good beers. the bottle shop has some hidden gems, but you have to look thoroughly. The staff is very friendly.

No prices in their bargain bin. IPA's as old as 6 months with most being in the 4 month old range. Not impressed.

A pleasant enough place to stop in for a beer and to pick up a six pack. While the cold case is relatively small it is stocked with some good quality popular choices and there's enough to keep one happy. Most of the stock is focused on craft beer offerings. Out in the dining area the bottles line a small shelf from the cold case to the door and some of their more interesting offerings may be found there.

On the whole a good place to know about if driving by as it should always be worth a stop and look see for something new and different. As with most such places in PA, just be sure you pay attention to the dates on bottles and six packs.

I stopped by this location because they are open until 9:00 PM on Sundays and sell beer until then unlike traditional beer distributors. The beer and brau they have is actually very cool. They have 5 or 6 beers on tap, which you can drink there or you can fill a growler to take home. Finding my way to the back of the brau is a large walk in refrigerator with singles, four packs, and six packs. Certain bottles have a sticker meaning you can "mix and match" and make your own 6 pack but for the most part there are singles and 4/6 packs. The selection is solid, they don't have everything but what they do have is reasonably priced and fresh. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and look forward to checking out what they offer as they start to grow and I expect this might one day be a destination depending on what they have in stock or on tap. If you are in the area and need some good beer check' em out.

Ha, I didn't add this place, but it looks like I am the first to review it. A small bar in the corner of the supermarket and a walk in fridge organized by local, national, and world breweries. The only macro in here is Yuengling lager, all the rest is craft. Local section is good, national not bad, imports is a very limited selection. There is a decent selection of singles, most beers are in 4 or 6 packs. A few shelves of bombers, but not that many. The only contact I had with the staff is checking out at the cash register. It is a supermarket, after all. Prices, by PA standards, were surprisingly reasonable. Overall not a place I will make a destination out of, but if in the area, I would stop in again.
