Awesome place, previous comparisons to Total wine have merit, but this place is bigger and cleaner. Actually has two full aisles of beer apart from the coolers, including one with way more bombers and 750s than Iím used to seeing. A good place for the upper end large bottles (the more "wine-like", I guess) like the GI sisters and a more than a few rareties. Prices are a tad high on the 12oz bottles and cans (premium pricing for the split into singles, bombers and 750s are par) but certainly not high enough to prevent me from buying fifty singles in a trip. Good service, easy to find with ample parking (long strip mall next to a supermarket), fresh bottles, and miscellaneous barware and cheese and cigars and the like. Iíll be back often.

Huge selection at great prices makes this a mandatory once-a-month for any Philadelphia beer lover. Thereís a card-driven wine tasting bar, a good selection of cheese and a chiller for your wine or beer. On top of that,y ou have two very knowledgeable people in Bruce and Charlie. (the latter is a legend-Winner of the Philadelphia Wine Star Award)
Great big warehouse style wine and spirits shop. However, this is a state of the art kind of place. An automatic wine tasting rig, cheese refridgerators, accomodating and clean bathrooms, a classroom for wine pairings, walk in cigar humidor, and a wine chiller (which I often use for beer). Everyone who is on the staff is very helpful and friendly. Some of these guys are heavy hitters in the wine business but avoid being snobs. If youíre looking for beer (which I assume you are), ask for Bruce. Good friendly guy and can give you good advice for any style you are looking for. If you ever need something held, heís happy to oblige.
The selection is where this store shines. The craft selection is about on par with most of the better stocked NJ stores. But the international selection is exceptional. A huge assortment of international beers including Mikkeller, Baladin, Meantime, Boon, and many many more. The store is pretty good about getting some of the rarer seasonal stuff but it can fly off the shelves (or storeroom) pretty quickly.
The prices are pretty good, escpecially if you are coming from Philly.
Overall, I recommend stopping here and checking it out. Apparently Iím the mayor?
I have to say this place is my almost second home. The craft beer selection is very expansive and the wine selection is even better. If you donít see a beer you want just ask for BRUCE! He is the best in customer service and will always try to find the beer for you! I honestly can not say enough about him!
This is looks like a Total Wine clone - a large wine store with one aisle devoted to beer, plus a walk in fridge and a row of fridges mostly for sixers and cases. Pretty decent selection of singles from regional breweries. Prices arenít terrible.
Decent selection even for New Jersey, where I normally have found good selection. Reasonable prices, particularly on local brewers. I got some Old Schoolhouse. Better than average selection of Europeans, that is Norway and Italy, not only Mikkeller.

nice warm feel t the place, awesome cheese station thoguh I ve never tried it, wonderful full stocked shevels, service didnt really see to anyone but stuff is easy to find, good vaule esp for the location, out og\f my way or I would visidt more often!
I stopped in here to see their selection of craft brews and boy was I blown away. The store is very clean with everything leveled and stocked. The selection of craft brews takes up a huge amount of space from a huge single selection to a great 6/12 pack selection cold and warm. The craft brews actually take up far more space than the typical BMC and are placed up front while the BMC is in the back corner. The store definitely cares about craft brews. The beer manager is very friendly and knowledgeable. I will be going here every time Iím in the area.
