Be carful when picking through their craft section, much of it is expired or close to being expired. I saw someone buy a case in there that dates back to last September (not the brew date, but expiration). The guy in the front didnít bother to tell her. Iíve had good experiences when buying adjunct, but Iíve almost made the mistake of buying one of their expired craft cases at full retail.

Stopped in here based on the reviews here. This place is a lot like Epps, only not as big, with not as good prices. Not a bad place, with a very good selection, but thereís no reason to go here instead of Frank Smithís.

Very friendly staff along with one of the better selections in town. It is a small store but Iíve ordered in with no problems. Highly recommended.

I just moved into the area and have been in a few beer stores in the area. They may not be the biggest store but the selection and value is good. Many of the micro beers are about 5 dollars cheaper than the stores in Pottstown. They have all the Dogfish Head beers and many micros. I asked the staff if I could order a case they did not have in stock and were very helpful. The case was in within 2 days and called to let me know right away. I definitely recommend shopping here!

This distributor used to be a Wawa, before they built a new store right down the street. They carry the usual suspects of big brewer beers, with some regional favorites. They do miss out on quite a few local selections, though. There isnít much from Weyerbacher, Sly Fox, Flying Fish or several others. They do carry Victory, but not all of the year-round or seasonal beers. They also have Dogfish Head, but the selection there isnít all that impressive either. The number one complaint I have about this store is the prices. Compared to my favorite, Beer Mart in Reading, Coventryís prices are consistently at least $5 higher per case. For example, a case of DFH 60 Minute at Beer Mart is about $32, while Coventry will charge $37. I just bought a case of Sam Adams Boston Lager, and it cost me $35. To me, thatís a bit high. I really only stop in at this store if Iím not in the Reading area. This is almost a place of last resort. I only shop here if I really have to. UPDATE: 11/11: I feel a little compelled to write a bit of an update of my initial review. The selection over the last few months has improved dramatically. They now carry a lot of local micros as well as a few new imports. One thing I do really love is that once in a while, they will offer a handful of single bottles up at the register. For example, just today I picked up single bottles of AleSmith Old Numbskull and AleSmith Wee Heavy. In the past, Iíve also picked up a few singles of DFH Red & White and Black & Blue. I also purchased a growler of Rogueís Yellow Snow. So the selection has definitely improved, and therefore, Iím going to increase my rating a bit. The prices, however, remain a little higher than some other stores in the area.
