ABOUT SHANGY’S DISTRIBUTING
Shangy’s originated in 1980 with one simple goal…to take beer to the next level. “Beer is the new wine” as noted by our founder, Javad Hadian in an April 1983 issue of All About Beer Magazine. It all began in 1979 when an immigrant husband & wife decided to build their “dream beer business.” With huge interest in better beer, they built one of America’s most sought after beer stores and later PA’s first craft-only beer wholesalers. What started with an old Ford Cargo Van, a cell phone the size of a suitcase, and endless hours of work, has blossomed into one of the largest specialty beer wholesalers in the country. With a team of over 20 sales representatives, two sales managers, two grocery managers, a tell-sell sales team, an operations manager, inventory manager, and general manager, we have become one of the finest specialty beer teams in the nation! We take great pride in our facility and are always expanding and updating.
