A very fine beer store I don't get to nearly often enough.
The shop has one long aisle of craft beer, mostly good domestic crafts with some Belgians and Unibroue as well. I have had particular good luck finding cases of Port/Lost Abbey here (Serpents' Stout, Moon Lit Sessions), more than anywhere I go except Shangy's. Lots of Founders beers and many other national brands. Also plenty of Weyerbacher seasonals and one-time releases. Two taps for sampling are usually hooked up too.
Service is helpful and friendly. Prices are reasonable.

The beverage center in Exton is about as good a place for cases as I have discovered in Pennsylvania. The store is open and airy much like a Sam’s Club for beer. What distinguishes Exton from all others I have been to is the sheer variety. Outside of just macro beer, this place really seems to have every beer they can get their paws on. I was really impressed with their selection of Troeg’s, Bells, Great Lakes and several others. The workers were also friendly. I went in to bring back a case for a friend. Not realizing the many varieties Yuengling had, I was kinda lost. The worker explained what each was and led me to what my friend was probably looking for. Helpful, but not intrusive. I will probably never get a case for any other purpose as it would most likely take me a couple months to drink that much. However, if I were looking for cases in the area this would be the first beverage center I would go to.

Exton Beverage Center is an excellent beer distributor! I wish this place were less than 45 minutes from my house. None the less I will be back. They have the best selection I have seen other than 'The Beer Yard' which is out of this world. Exton Beverage Center is easy to find. The service was good and the prices (what I expected) reasonable for this part of PA. And with a selection including: Victory, Stone, Rogue, Three Floyds, Dogfish Head, Great Divide, Magic Hat, Pyramid, Brooklyn, Ommegang and much more, this place is all I could have hoped for and more.
Hope this is helpful.
Last time I was at Exton Beverage Center I was looking for variety packs. I was very disappointed. The selection seemed less than the fist time I was there and the had some strange options in cases when some of the more popular local micros were not available. Anyway, I am still a believer but the next time I am going to call and make sure they have what I'm looking for before I drive down, as it would appear their selection varies.

Stopped by here completing my tri-fecta (TDR, Ron's) of Exton beer stops. I was the only one in the place, but the guy behind the counter did little more than nod in my direction as I entered.
This place has a pretty darn good selection. You can find almost anything PA has available. The prices are clearly marked with the Brewer's name and specific beer. I would say their strong suit is domestic craft beer. They had some imports, but I have seen better in the area. The highlight was a case of Nemesis...if I only had an extra $110 sitting around!

Greg the owner is a friendly, helpful beer lover. He works hard to stock his store with the best crafts he can get, local and non-local, and keeps the prices average for the area. Plus Exton has an impressive selection of sixtels, which is pretty rare for your average suburban distributor, and an impressive website. The rest of his staff are also pretty professional and knowledgeable about beer.
Exton is now sort-of a high end area, with the ugly "Main St." and the upscaled Exton Mall, but your options to buy crafts in the West Chester/Exton area are still pretty limited to here and the Beermill in WC boro if you want to buy a case. Exton has a better selection with lower prices.

Stopped here for one reason only, they have the best Sixtel Keg selection that is within a 3 hours radius of me.
Stopped on a Saturday morning around 10AM. Place was jumping for this early in the morning. I am not just talking your raging alcoholics looking to buy their first case of the day Milwaukee's Best; there were Craft beer buyers as well.
Atmosphere: Smaller inside than it appears from the outside. Cases were neatly displayed with prices clearly marked. Some cases had descriptions next to them as well.
Selection: Well, easily the best Keg Selection that I have ever seen and the reason I drove 3 hours to get here. Too many to list here as the selection constantly changes. I noticed that they carry almost all of Penn Brewing Beers in Sixtel's. This is very irritating to me as I live close to Pittsburgh and the only Sixtel's of Penn I can get are the Hefe and Pilsner. I know that it is contract brewed in Wilkes Barre but that is no excuse that we cannot get all of Penn's products in Pittsburgh when this where they are headquartered. FFing irritating...
Service: Was good, the guys working there gave me some advice on local beers such as Philadelphia Brewing that I have never had before. Also, they just ran out of Victory's Sunrise Wheat that I really wanted. One of the guys called up another local distributor to see if they had it in stock and had them hold one for me.
Value: Kegs prices vary depending on what style you are looking for and if it is an in demand product.
Overall: I made the round trip 6 hour drive to get here because I cannot get this kind of selection in Pittsburgh. Don't know why we can't have a place like this in Pitt. Could it be that this part of the state controls a lot of what comes into PA to begin with and they will take care of the Philly Market before Pitt. Hmmm?

I actually stopped in by accident--it was the first place that came up when i googled beer/exton. it is conveniently located right off of routes 100 and 30. Plenty of parking in a square grey box of a building.
Great selection of american crafts, with a small selection of internationals.
Service was cordial and pointed me in the direction of a quality singles joint (ron's).
The only real knock, besides the focus on national brands, would be that they have only cases. They had a stout collection of sixtels. I liked the selection and would have bought, but i really was in town for a week and wanted to try a selection of brews we can't get in baltimore. From that perspective, i liked Ron's much better.

I headed out to Exton today to meet beerbeing for part of a case swap & this was our meeting place. I wandered around a bit to check out what they had. A very nice selection of local micros (Victory, Sly Fox, DFH, Stoudts, Weyerbacher, FF, etc) plus a good bit of Stone/Rogue and some random styles from Bell's, Founders, Port Brewing, & other quality breweries. They did have a deep selection of the non-local, not widely distributed breweries but the beers they had were quality. I am not a big fan of imports so I did not evaluate their selection of Belgians, etc. The service asked me twice if I needed help b/c I was perusing the selection which shows they cared. Prices were reasonable. A worthwhile spot to pick up a case of brew.

A: After reading about this place I was finally in the area and had the chance to stop in. The atmosphere is pretty dang nice. Lots of cases, lots of cases. One thing that did stand out, the wonderful smell of cigars; loved it!
Q: Nice wide isles. To a XXL, I can't stress how much I appreiate this. Lots of parking as well.
Ser: No one really approched/bothered me while I was perusing the isles. They kinda waited for me to get finished, and then they talked beer with me for a good bit. I was on my lunch break, or I'm sure they would have been happy to spend a little longer 'just talking beer'.
Sel: I have never ssen cases of Russian River, Cascade, World Wide Stout. They have the best selection, I've ever seen, in cases. In fact, I landed a case of Stone IRS 2011, which I have been looking for just a bottle of.
More than glad I stopped in!

Exton beverage is just across from the mall and is a stop for me whenever I visit the inlaws. looks like your average macro beer distributor, but has a pretty decent selection of micro and craft beers.
one long aisle of micro's and they also have a pretty nice keg selection. standard PA micro's plus some of the other greats. They also carry an ok selection of Belgian beers towards the back.
they also have tastings pretty often, which is nice.
still a drawback (not their fault) is the darn Pennsylvania law requiring one to buy a full case.
