Best beer selection in the area! This place recently expanded and is very well stocked and also organized very well by style. The large bottles are organized by brewer and there is a great selection of those too.
I picked up a corsendonk, stone mulberry pale, souther tier unearthly ipa, ommegang witte, souther tier pale, victory whirlwind, oskar blues impirial ipa and a bottle of duchesse de dourgogne.
Reasonable pricing and tastings every friday add to the apeal of this place. The owner is also very knowledgeable and passionate about, well, our passion, beer!

In the past year or so Krugel's Georgetown Deli and Beer has become my main place to buy beer to go. They have vastly expanded their selection and added growler fills too. They now stock well over 1000 beers and the staff is very knowledgeable on the beer that they have. If there's a particular beer that you are looking for that they don't have, they have a request form that you can fill out and they'll try their best to get some for you. Their prices are reasonable - better than most other places in the area. I've eaten there a few times and the food is always excellent, but my main reason for visiting is to grab a few new beers to stock my fridge at home.

I drove two hours with the single reason being this establishment. I read that the selection was the best in PA, it couldn't have been more correct. I spoke with the owner for about an hour and had an absolute blast browsing his selection. The beers are organized by style, which helps when the amount of beers is 1200+. I was able to find many hard to find brews along with my seasonal favorites. If you are in the tri-state area, you must make the drive. Easily one of the best beer stores I have ever visited.

I've been buying beer from this place for a little while now, and it's great to see how much they've grown with their beer selection. Walking in there now, it's amazing they can pack that much good beer in such a small place.
On my most recent visit with my girlfriend, I was looking to pair a beer with our dinner that night. After the girl behind the register asked if we needed any help, and us telling her our situation, she called to the owner in the back and he came out front to help pick something that would go well. We ended up taking him up on one of his suggestions of the Harpoon Helles Blond Bock, and it went great with our steak that night.
Pretty hard to beat with the good selection, and the willingness of the staff to help out. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

Discovered this place after doing a google search for Craft Beer in northeast PA. Read a review stating that carried over 1100 different bottles, figured I had to check it out. I've been back at least once a week since ( and this is 20 mile drive from my house).
They have an awesome selection of beers by all the reputable breweries and some gems that many don't know about. They have 6 rotating taps to have a pint while browsing or to fill your growler.
Service is good, I talked beer with the owner for a good 45 minutes, which could have went longer but he seemed busy. This place is definitely my new go to for craft beers. One of the few notable bottle shops in NEPA.

We made a trip here on our way back to MA yesterday and i was not prepared for this place. Largest selection of craft brews I have ever seen. I ended up getting things I couldn't find in MA and some I hadn't even heard of. The only negative, like others have noted, are the prices. I went down the road to Wegman's to buy my standard Bell's and Founder's stuff, which was usually $3-$4 cheaper, but Georgetown had a bunch of both that Wegman's didn't have.
Will be stopping here every time we visit my girlfriend's family from now on.

I stopped by here for lunch on 26JAN11 while on my way to Ft Indiantown Gap for a Battle of the Bulge re-enactment.
Found this place in a rather non-descript, one-story, drab building in a strip-mall type setting. Once entered, there is a deli-counter straight ahead to take your food orders and pay for your bier, etc. The left wall has assorted singles for making your own 6-pack. A few small tables were in the adjacent area, with a cooler against the front wall. Further to the right are more tables to dine at, surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of different biers from hither and yon. As stated in other reviews, the arrangement of the biers does make it a bit difficult to find something from a particular brewer. Then again, it affords one the chance to compare similarly styled biers from various brewers. Prices for the biers were a touch higher than in my home area, but I saw scores of biers I'd never heard of before. Foodwise, the prices there were quite reasonable. I had a cheese-steak sub which was enormous and wonderfully tasty; a solid value at its price. I was tempted to snag a growler, but those tended to be steep in the cost per ounce area, so I passed. So, my sub with a side of o-rings, 2 pints of bier, and 4 assorted bombers of barleywine and DIPAs ran me about $53. Not bad overall. Atmosphere was decent, but you're basically sitting in a bier-store while eating and drinking, so... Service, on the other hand, was top-shelf. Both the young gent and lady were right there to answer any questions I had or to give assistance. Quite impressed, I was. I'd stop back any time I'm in the area. Prosit!

Had a fun day in Wilkes-Barre today. Visited Wegman's who was having a free food and beer pairing event. Exciting walking around a grocery store sampling beer and food and dodging shoppers with carts. Next we hit the Homebrew Expo day at the new Breakers Brewery building.
But an unexpected highlight of the day was our very first visit to Georgetown. Ran into some people who were at the Homebrew event there afterward and they recommended some selections. Had a Founders Breakfast stout from the tap $5. They also had Pumking on tap ($20 growler fill) and sam adams double pumpkin and one of the local Breakers beers on. They have only 7 taps but have high turnaround and they are probably always fresh that way. Tables, not fancy but functional to sit and have a beer surrounded by the best beer selection i've seen in Northeast PA (NEPA).
I definitely saw beers here that I can't get anywhere else unless I drive twice as far or more. They had good selection of Cigar City, Southern Tier, Voodoo Brewing, etc. I know a lot of people thought the prices were a lot higher than wegman's but hey, i only noticed a dollar or so difference in a bomber size bottle price. For the really price conscious go to wegman's first, get what you want. then come here. You'll want to buy more because they have more of the rarities.
I drove about 45 minutes to get here so what's a few extra bucks? If you are out of the area, wegman's, georgetown, and a stop at the Arena Sports Bar and Grille are a worthwhile day trip. With all three here I will try to make it up to here more frequently.

After visiting many non-distributors of beer in PA over the past couple days, we found Georgetown Deli & Beer through BeerAdvocate. What an accurate set of reviews so far for this place.
Shortly after walking in, the staff was greeting us and ready to assist.
We were more looking to mull things over, but soon began picking out beer in the "Mix a Six" format.
When we thought we weren't going to be able to get 2 bottles of a particular kind, the owner broke up a shelf six pack for us to get our bottles.
For all the travelling Yuengling fans, this is one of the very few places that had all of the 7 varieties in six pack format.
Our thanks to the owner and staff!

Krugel's has easily become one of the top two or three bottle shops in NEPA. I'd say the selection is as Sabatini's, if not better, and it's definitely better than both Jessup Beverage and Purv's. They seem to routinely score new releases before anyone else around, and they also occasionally have local stuff from Breaker Brewing and Bethlehem BrewWorks when it makes it into bottles. They have an excellent selection of 6 and 4 packs as well as bombers and 750mls. Solid import selection, very good craft selection - pretty much anything that gets distributed in NEPA has a good chance of showing up here. They also have a mixed 6 pack for $10.99 and a decent selection of singles to choose from to fill it. That's always a nice option.
Someone typically approaches me to see if I need any help when I visit, which is a good thing because probably the only real problem I have with this place is that it's poorly organized. There's no logical organization beyond bombers/750s going together and 6 packs arranged in a sort of pyramid on the floor; some stuff is buried in cases where you can't see it, so if you don't ask you won't find it. That's a bit of a pain in the butt, but oh well. Prices aren't bad but they're maybe just a touch on the high sidle - I'd say a lot of 6 packs are about $1 more than you'll pay at Wegmans, and similarly with bombers/750s, but that's more than made up for by the selection. Prices are also clearly marked on packages and bottles which is definitely a plus.
All in all this place is absolutely worth a stop; for me it's quite a bit out of the way, but I make sure to swing by when I'm in the area. You should too.
