Itís a PA beer distributor so you keep your hopes low. This is one of the nicer ones in terms of it being clean, well ventilated, and relatively free of invasive sunlight. They have a lot the usual crafts at the usual PA prices. Obviously there are better places in town to by smaller quantities but you could do much worse than this place.

Awesome distributor. They have the largerest craft brew cases in state college hands down. The people are nice and super knowledgable, the only down side is they arenít open on Sunday. This was my go to place before parties.

Overall, Pletcherís is nice. They have a good selection of Pennsylvania beers and some of the bigger Micros (Stone, Bells, DFH). Iíd like to see some more regional breweries from nearby states and less swill. Thereís so many kinds of pisswater Iíve never even heard of before, available here. I did have a good experience with the staff. I called to ask if they were going to get Victory Baltic Thunder in. They had just sold out of a small number of cases. They took my number and said theyíd order more and call me when it came in. They did just that and set aside a case for me. Excellent! Otherwise, Iíve not had overly helpful service in the store, but the guys are friendly.

Definitely my favorite place to buy a case--with the possible exception of KClingerís Tavern in Hanover (where I can take home a mixed case of highly-prized treasures, if Iím willing to shell out the loot). Great selection of regional micros, though Iíll agree with some of the other posts that itís very disappointing not to see the kind of beer I like to lay down (like Hair of the Dog) and other oddities (Belzebuth Ale, Flying Dog ales, Schlenkerla or DeGroenís Rauchbock, Orkney Skullsplitter, Bellís Explorer Stout, North Coast Old Rasputin, Froach Heather Ale, Hitachino Nest, Baltika, etc...) But hey, maybe theyíll read this and take the hint...

Stone Smoked Porter/IPA/Arrogant Bastard, Weyerbacher Quad/Blithering/Hops Infusion/Prophecy/etc/etc, Stoudts Tripel/Fat Dog/Double IPA/etc/etc, Orval, Duvel, Chimay, Dogfish Head... basically a decent selection from around the region, but lacking some of the more coveted items such as Hair of the Dog and the Stone RIS - things that Zenoís gets from folks down south of town a ways... I guess the selection is OK, but this being my first time in a store/distributor which requires 24 bottles to purchase, man, I donít think Iím going to walk in a plop down $160 for Arrogant Bastard, or $99 for Orval. I need to find a six-pack shop with a wide selection, then Iíll be happy. The building is at least clean... itís just a small warehouse, everything stacked on shelves, everything clearly marked.

Best distributor in town, before I graduated it was my place of choice to purchase beer (over any of the bottle shops, that is). Decent micro selection (cases of DFH world wide stout are always nice to see), but not overly extensive. Still, they often had something worth trying. And for the poor college kids, sometimes they even had slightly outdated cases significantly marked down. Not a bad deal when youíre living on ramen.

Best distributer in State College! Good selection of beers from around the world, good micro brew section that continues to grow. Prices reasonable.

I also think its the best distributor in State College, good micro selection, decent german and belgian selection, and staff is usually helpful or at least efficient. Better than the other distributors nearby

IMO, the best distributor in State College area. Besides all the macros, great selection of PA micros, regionals (Flying Fish, DFH, etc.), Germans, and Belgians (including Chimay). The staff is friendly and very knowledgable, and theyíll make an effort to get you something if itís within their system. Imports and hard-to-find cases are a little pricy (Chimay Bleu $82, DFHWWS $105) but not unreasonable for being located in the middle of the state.
