Great selection with a knowledgeable and helpful staff. sometimes they are crazy busy so if you want to sit and chat don’t go in on a Friday evening. They will order you whatever you want if they don’t have it. I have seen Cantillon on the shelf....Right!?

Service laxes a bit. Prices are a bit high comparatively. I would like to note the store has excellent hours of operation and quite a large selection of macro and micro brew. Also a great selection of Belgium brews. Quite a large cold selection -- for a "cold" fee if you choose. Sometimes there is really annoying music playing - keeps ya from browsing too long those days.

I’ve been buying here for several years. The staff is more than knowledgeable and eager to help you if needed. As previously stated, their selection is great and if you don’t see it they will do what they can to get it if possible. Overall, I really enjoy stopping in and will continue to do so.

This place is my spot in Pottstown. Outstanding selection. Previously, I drove to Shangys. Now, I have a pretty similar amount of choice down the street. My only recommendation would be to post prices for all beer as i’d try something reasonably priced without ever having heard of it.

In a state with ridiculous beer laws this place does it right. Bill helped my father and I by showing us around the store and some stuff in their office. The selection here in mind blowing. Tons of California, Northeast, and Belgian’s and that’s just the start. Service is personal and friendly and they even helped us load the car up! Can’t say enough about this place, truly a GREAT beer experience. Keep up the good work Bill and staff!

Large inventory of beers from all over the world. You will find things here that you won’t find at most distributors and the prices are reasonable. You get what you pay for. We met, Bill, who presented us with a couple of new cases of rare ales that he just received. He was very knowledgable, helpful, and friendly. I simply can’t say enough good things about him and Frank Smith Beverages. I will travel the extra miles whenever I want to purchase quality ales at fair prices. Now, if we could only get Pennsylvania to get out of the doldrums and change their archaic laws to allow sales of singles. Thank you, Bill, for spending time to talk "beer" with my son and I. We’ll be back!!!!!

The big warehouse has a beautiful aisle of Big Belgian cases ready tempting your palate as you walk by. The selection is phenomenal, especially considering the laws in Pennsylvania placing these silly limitations on alcohol sales. They put forth effort into getting a hold of the rare and limited edition brews available. The value is the best I’ve ever seen ever, especially compared to other places around like in Limerick and Norristown. The only better place to get the Dieu du Ciel is Canada. The service is comfortable, convenient, and friendly. The crew makes you feel loved, even if you can’t figure out how old Todd is. Bill’s experiences with his own set of children has prepared him for Greg and the boys to run that place like a well-oiled machine whether he’s there to help, or skips out early to get a good workout! I will no longer shop for beer anywhere else in the state as long as this place continues to offer the value service, and tastings they do so well.

So like I said in my last review I am new to the area and stopped in to check out the selection. They had a lot of beer but the price was quite a bit higher from another beer distributor I was recently in so I went elsewhere.

For as long as I’ve lived in Pottstown, I have never really ventured into Frank Smith’s. The other night I was over toward that way for dinner, and expecting some company afterward for some drinks, I stopped by for a couple of cases. The atmosphere is typical PA distributor, with a warehouse-type of feel and cases of beer organized and stocked in strategic, pallet-driven piles. The selection was pretty good. They have a host of cases from all over the world, but mostly from the US. They carry the usual PA micros, from Victory to Sly Fox, and a decent selection of DFH and others from the around the area. They have plenty of imports, too. I was really disappointed in the prices and value. I paid over $80 for a case of Guinness and a case of DFH Raison. I can get those same two cases at Beer Mart in Reading for least $10 cheaper. I prefer shopping at Beer Mart. I can hit them up on my way home from work and save a whole lot of money. But in a pinch, I’ll stop by here.
