Ambiance - it’s a beer showroom, not like many other beer distributors, where you walk into a dark and dank big cellar. Pleasing area to buy beer.
Service - is knowledgeable, the staff working in the office dealing with Wholesale accounts were very friendly and helpful, really wanted to do business with me.
Selection - huge amounts, I think the amount of bottles is inflated, they may have 3000 cases, but not 3000 different cases.
Value - overpriced, and that’s not really debatable. Kind of is the nature of the game, when you own all the rites to everything.
Honestly, it’s got everything, but when you know from a business standpoint how they do business, it’s not as glamorous. The owners are shrewd and puffy. Not a fan of that. All in all, I love the selection, the showroom, and the staff - I do however have objections of their bully business approach.

Have been going to Shangy's for 15 years since it was a shack on the side of the road, wow how they have grown. Best selection in the area. An asset to the LV and worth the trip.

Would visit when in the area for work. Awesome selection of both micro and imports. The owner is usually too busy to be bothered with any customers. There is one female counter staff who is nice, the other one don't even bother with, must be related to the owner? Nice selection but when I drive all the way from Maryland I expect too be treated better.

Keg heaven!!!! Rows and rows, aisles and aisles of kegs! And on top of the vast selection, they are priced very reasonably! The next time I head down, I will be bringing a truck and stocking up on sixtels. Staff was very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient while we looked through their back freezer. Great place.

Amazing selection. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Best PA has to offer. Also, prices are $5-$10 less on most cases.

Good, good, good spot. Great selection, welcoming and willing service and awesome prices. PA sucks the fattest one on that ridiculous case only law but if I’m buying cases, I’m buying them here. One example, St. Bernardus Christmas for 99.99 per case, that’s wicked cheap. The value was everywhere in the store and I must say I definitely noticed some old stuff, but if some stouts and barleywines are sitting around a couple years so be it, thanks for aging it for me. Check the dates on all other stuff and I’m sure you’ll leave happy.

Two things to address anyone’s concerns about Shangys’. First if you are buying a number of cases, walk in, ask for help and give the employee your list. Simple as that. Second, yes, there is some old stock on the piles, do your due dilligence and check any cases before you pay for them. If you are doubtful about the possible packaging date, do yourself a favor and don’t buy it.
Otherwise, any self respecting beer geek should not hate on this place. Do they have everything ever brewed, no. But do they have stuff to make the drive from LI, NY worthwhile and more, you bet! Should they have old stock on their shelves, no, but most places I know in LI are not very dilligent about moving older product to the clearance rack.
I found the prices on 95% of the items looked at to be more than reasonable, and some downright cheap. Last Dec I got a case of Black Ops for $223. Insane! This trip was another Bell’s O Rama.
Tons of Lost Abbey, Pizza Port, Terrapin, Bell’s, Founders, New Holland, Stone, on and on. Huge craft can selections for those looking to make your golf/camping buddies jealous.
Apparently they are working on a website so you can have a better idea as to what they have available.

Great place if you know what you want. They’ve got just about every beer you can get in eastern PA.
