Stopped in here earlier today to check out the local selection. More of a liquor store than bottle shop, about a 85-15 ratio toward wine / liquor. A little cramped once you get inside with all of the beer in the back isle. Service was decent, I was asked if I needed help twice. Quality is pretty good, I checked a few bottles and nearly all were fresh. Selection was surprisingly good, albeit a little small, for a liquor store of this size. I saw a few bottles of Firestone ßucaba, a few bottles of B. Nektar, a bunch of DFH and plenty of six and four packs. Prices were good and comparable to some of the other places in the area. Overall, a decent little store with a good selection and prices that is right downtown. Not the best in the area, thatís Joe Canalís in Rio, but more than serviceable for where it is located.

An okay place with a nice wine selection but with limited beers. Some basic locals and your other basic beers. You wonít find any hidden gems here.

Ambiance: Smallish place in a half-warehouse sort of building in the middle of town. Standard liquor store interior. Clean. Service: Friendly, but not particularly useful when it comes to beer. Selection: This is literally the only place to buy retail beer in town. The selection was reasonable in that light. About five cases of sixers from macros to a few micros, with some foreign jobs as well. About a case and a half of singles. Canít break sixers. Mainly a wine town, reflected in the store here. Food: NA. Value: Actually surprisingly reasonable. If I ran this place, Iíd be charging a lot more since Iíd be the only game in town. Overall/Notes: Again, the only game in town. Here on vacation, picked up a six of Hoegaarden, a six of Sam Adams Oktoberfest, and singles of Unibroue Ephemere and New Holland Dragonís Milk. Enough here to get the job done.

Besides Joe Canalís in Rio Grande and Gormanís in North Cape May, this place isnít bad at all. They have a small area for beer (mostly because Cape May is a wine-o town) but they keep the macros to a somewhat minimum and carry a few different micros (Weyerbach, Saranac, Dogfish Head, Victory and Flying Fish). Your best bet is to hit Canalís if your budget is tight, they charge a little more in Cape May.

Some good micro six-packs and a few big bottles of Belgians (e.g. La Chouffe) and domestics (e.g. Allagash Musette). Good selection for this ritzy neck of the woods.

So so. You canít break six packs. There are only about 25 beers sold as singles. There was some Salty Dog and some River Horse as I recall. Not much interesting. Oh yes, Flying Fish, and some Victory. There was one bottle of Dogfish Fort (750ml), which was unusual in its presence. I think there were two other liquor stores in Cape May but I didnít venture into them and they looked smaller than Collierís.

I was surprised to see such a broad selection compared to every other southern Jersey liquor store Iíd seen. Thank goodness for Ratebeer pointing me here. Now, maybe if they get more support they will broaden their already solid lineup.

If you think my rating on this place is high, spend a week down there searching EVERY other bottle shop, and THIS is BEER PARADISE as far as Cape May- Wildwood goes. I mean it.

This is a decent liquor store on the South Jersey Shore. Regional selection includes Dogfish Head, Victory, Weyerbacher, Brooklyn, Troegís, Flying Fish, and Magic Hat. Some quality singles are available. Not worth a side trip, but this is the place to go for beer if you find yourself in Cape May County.
