I decided to stop by this beer distributor to check things out. Usually I head over to the Beer Yard, but wanted to try something new.
The selection is good but not amazing. They have the usual crap, local craft, some West coast offerings, and a handful of worthy imports. I found some Rogue I2PA and it was well over a hundred dollars for 6 bottles (Which is par for the course. I hate not being able to purchase A bottle if I stumble across something intresting). The dude there was nice.
The quality of the beer was good relative to 90% of the distributors in the area. Found some Stone, DFH, Rogue, Southampton, Great Divide, Lost Abbey, and so on. I ended up getting SN Celebration for 30 something dollars.
Overall a decent distributor with a nice selection.

I sought this place out when in Philadelphia and was on the whole impressed, but completely didn't realize this place only sells beer by the case. Cases and kegs, really, but no individual bottles, which is a shame since their selection is pretty damn good. When I heard about the only store outside California which legally distributes Russian River, I had to go there, btu thank God I called first; all the RR is presold and shipments come in pretty infrequently. In addition, only a few of the RR beers can be bought by the case, and you can bet theyre very expensive. Those not sold by the case are sold by the draft keg and you can bet THAT is even more expensive. But you gotta do what you gotta do to get good beer I suppose. I ended up buying a case of Ayinger Celebrator, which was expensive but as I said before, we'll go to whatever lengths we see fit for good beer.
Staff was knowledgable and didn't seem to mind me coming in right before close. Great place, but I'd definitely call before going just to make sure they have what you want in stock.

Stopped in here this afternoon for the Hop 15. Last case they had on the floor, split with Clockworkorange and psycohops and another beer lover Paul. The place looks cool on the outside with the old school lettering in the sign, but inside it just looks old. Some cases had more dust on them then a barn floor. They had a couple cases of beer from a now defunct brewery with a best by date of 2005. Uhh...I passed on those. Really good selection if you're in the area. Just remember the PA case law and make sure you bring enough money.

This is a place to buy cases. No 6 packs, no 12 packs. Cases! Very good selection. Duvel, St. Bernardus, 5 different Dogfish Heads, Stone, Magic Hat, and the usual BMC. Cases. There was only one person working behind the counter, who was friendly, but not overly helpful. None of the cases were marked with a price, although there was a pricelist hanging in one of the rows. There were a few mixed cases, but nothing worth purchasing. I'll pass on this place in the future. There are still too many beers I haven't tried, and I can't bring myself to buy a case of anything yet. But, if you want a case of something, this place is worth a stop.

Stopped here when I was in the area, as it was the only place listed on the Stone website that distributed their beer. The selection was impressive; a good Euro selection, the usual locals (what was weird was that they only had 4 cases of Troegs out), some local rarities (HopWallop and Storm King and SlyFox Black Rasp) and a good, not great selection of American Micro's. The Stone selection was awesome (VE, RIS, Ruination, AB) but Russian River was on the list and not there. Dogfish Raison de Extra was there (and the $150 price tag that comes with the case).
The service was average, when average means that I was content to look around by myself for some beers that I can't find in the City and available to check on a beer's availability. Two cases ran me about 80 bucks (Stoudt's Fat Dog and Dogfish's Festina Peche); nothing out of the ordinary there. The only problem is that to get there the Schuykill Expressway plays a prominent factor, which if you've ever driven it out of Philly between 3 and 6 on a weekday you will know what I mean. All in all, a great store. You can easily spend 30-45 minutes there, pick up a couple really good cases and not pay an exorbandant amount.

I stopped in here just to see what it was all about one afternoon. Driving down Henderson, I spied it on my right. The huge old-school movie theater neon lettering spelling out Kunda Bev is really hard to miss.
Inside, the place seemed rather drab. A coat of paint or some beer decorations would work wonders here. Its a good thing their beer supply made up for the crappy interior. The beers on hand were very nice with a great spread of Belgians and all of the usual local suspects, along with the ubiquitous BMC, Mexican, German and Asian standards. I didnt spy any jaw droppers here (who wants to spend $150 on a case anyway?), but what they had was admirable. If you live closer to here than the beer yard, Id stop by for sure.

My friend works at this place and I decided, while I waited for him to get off of work (about 40 minutes) I would walk around and write down some of the brands that I wanted to try. I walked down one aisle and promptly returned the pen and pad to the cashier I was so overwhelmed by the selection. I talked with my friend and the cashier about different kinds of beer and what they recommended proving that the people that work here know beer. Great place that sells great beer. If you're looking for a certain beer, this place most likely has it or will have it shortly.

This is a great place to find many imports and microbrews. They have an extremely knowedgable chashier and if the rest of the staff doesn't know they will direct you to someone who does. The prices are reasonable, but the hours are a little strange, but I guess that is to be expected for a place that focuses on wholesale. They have a tremdous "blow out" section where repacks and just out of date cases are kept, and frequently there is many good beers and buys there. If there is someone on "the floor," and you ask about something in stock (but not in the retail section of the store) they are more than willing to go back to (I think there is two) of the wharehouses and find it four you. In my opinion the best aspect of Kunda Beverage is their price lists. They are put up about the store and are seperated into craft brews and imports as well as ordered alphebetically. Everytime I have looked they have been up to date. Don't drink and review.

Nice place to buy cases. Prices are reasonable given the area, and the cashier is always willing to give me info in what is and what isn't in stock. It's nice to see a price list for all their offerings also.
They have a great selection too. If you don't see something, they may have it in their wharehouse in the back(...like 25 cases of Southampton Grand Cru !!! ). You see all the typical local brews and the more popular ones from farther away. Imports are also very well represented.
I go there on a regular basis to see the deals in their repack and recently expired section. Got a case of 2004 Omme Abbey 750's for about half price. I left some skidmarks in my undies after seeing that - SOLD!
Overall, a great place to buy if you're looking for a decent deal and something different.

Quality: Everything appeared to be fresh and stored properly
Service: Not to talkative....but not rude either
Selection: This is this strores strong point. It was the reason it was recomended to me. In addition to having the macros and micros you'd expect, it also has some rare looking Euro brews....but these are two pricey for me. What makes this store special is that they will combine different types of beer for "variety" cases. These are usually priced around $25 and often include impressive selections like Ommegang and Victory. Great deal
Value: Everything seemed reasonably priced
