I was running low on Yunegling from a promo that was going better than expected. They delivered a keg to my bar in 10 minutes to keep me going. Fantastic!!! Thank you! This store carries the popular crafts that are commonly found in any tavern, but it's nice to know that I can get what I would order out here and take it home instead of spending a ton of money at a bar that upcharges. B.B.&S. has helped me turn my friends and family to the "Craft Side" when I have them over for gatherings instead of giving in to the crud light and bores light, etc...

I have driven by this place many times, but never went in. So last weekend when my wife wanted to go shopping in the area, I decided to check them out. I went in and was browsing, and trying to decide what beer to buy. Also, I noticed they had different types of pork rinds, so I went into that aisle. This aisle is near the front of the store, and near the cashiers. While I was looking at their selection of pork rinds, one of the guys that worked there went up to one of the cashiers. I was pretty close to them, so I saw they were looking my way. Then, the guy went on to say some pretty rude things about me, and him and the cashier had a little laugh about it.

I am someone who does look a bit different than the ’normal’ or ‘average’ person, but I was kind of surprised that the guy would just insult me, while I’m standing pretty close to him, where I could hear what he was saying. Needless to say, I didn’t feel like being in the store anymore, so I just left. It kind of sucks when you just want to buy some beer, but someone has to make rude comments about you because you look different than other people.

So, if you want to get insulted while buying your beer, then this is the perfect place for you. If you prefer the people in the beer store treat you respectfully while you are a customer in their store, then this is not the place to go. I obviously am not going back, and I suggest you stay away too.

Very easy to find this place on Street Road, just down the road from Parx Casino. Upon entering you first notice how well lit and organized the store is. Plenty of warm cases but the refridgerators are loaded with cold cases. I did not really see any hard to get beers here, but if you are looking for local beer at very good pricing, this is the place to stop if in the area.

Service was friendly, and I was asked almost immediately when I walked in if I needed any help finding anything. Prices are clearly labelled and easy to read. Overall this was a nice store that was pleasurable to shop in.

On a busy intersection of Street Rd. and Hulmeville Rd. Drove past here many times in my life but never came inside. Very clean atmosphere unlike alot of distributors in the area. No warehouse feel and all temperature controlled which is also very nice. Well organized, Two aisles of craft beer as you walk in the door mostly of PA breweries like Victory,Troegs,Weyerbacher etc. and plenty of it. A sale on Deschutes cases as well today. Not a huge selection or harder to find beers but there is plenty of stock of the local goodies. Service was friendly and helpful not as if they were doing you a chore. Also prices seem to be on the cheaper end. Always a great thing. I will definetly be back when I need a case or two.

They re-did the entire place. The prices are great, the selection is great for the local brews, they have a few from other places. They are very helpful. Some hard to find brews are here, but only a few cases of them. They shine with their pricing and their selection of local crafts. They have a "beers of the world section" which offers great imports. They even have nice glassware. Soon they will have kegorator equipment as well. Gotta love visible pricing (on the box prices), great selection, and helpful staff - they will order you whatever you want. As long as the beer stays fresh in this place, this will be my go-to place for cases.

I've been dealing with Bensalem Beer and Soda for a while now. They are my "fall back" distributor. When I want to try new beers, buy by the bottle, etc...then I have my sources. Although when it's time to break down and get a case...even order a specialty case...then I come to Bensalem Beer and Soda first. The woman you want to ask for is Andrea. When you know there's a beer available locally, but hard to find...she'll find it and get it in fast. They have surprised me many times though by having some-what rare cases in their current stock.
Bensalem Beer and Soda is on a major intersection corner, so they are very easy to find. The prices are pretty fair, pretty standard.

Recently, I was heading to Philadelphia Park Casino when I found Bensalem Beer & Soda while on the way at a stoplight. They house a good selection of craft beer and those that are relatively hard to find. Their prices are somewhat reasonable, in fact, cheaper than some of the other stores I contacted in PA. There were a few employees who were very friendly and offered assistance while I was browsing the cooler. When I brought a case of Thomas Hooker beer up to the register, the manager rang me up and said that she enjoys the same brand of beer. I informed her that a distributor mentioned her store as a location who carried it and she seemed surprised to here that information. I mentioned that I lived in NJ and was happy that I came across the bridge to find this brand, which made her say that the next time I wanted a case that she would put it in the cooler for me. This was a very good example of customer service and a major step in building loyalty.

Understand that since the last time I've been to BB&S, I've heard they have new ownership, so things may have changed.

Q: This place is big, roomy, CLEAN, well organized, and they have 25 (or so) hand trucks out front. The hand trucks are sooo convenient.

Ser: The service is outstanding. The people here know their beer pretty well; and if they don't, they'll look anything up for you right away. And man are they helpful and friendly.

Sel: Their selection is really nice. They keep a good variety of micro's in stock.

Val: As good as any prices in PA as you're gonna see.

I recently started a new job in Bensalem and drive right by this place on the way to and from work. The set up is very different then the distributors that I'm used to in Center City in that it's not a garage/warehouse and it's immaculate inside. The prices are also clearly marked on all of the cases which makes shopping much easier.
The selection is definitely geared towards the PA micro's with a lesser selection of out of state stuff, but some good stuff nonetheless. Regular selection of the macros and imports.
