Although this place is one of the very best discount wine companys in the US (this is their only store...they do about 80% of their wine sales online believe it or not), their beer selction is very good. Keeping in mind how much of their focus is on wine...that’s even more amazing. The factor in the great service and very good prices and you have a winning combination. Recently, when I thought there was no longer any chance of finding this year’s batch of Lagunitas Sucks, they opened up an account for me over the phone and set aside a case for me. Great people...gourmet cheeses and foods for sale too.

Decent place. Above verage selection. Had KBS on the shelf, which is a plus. Not on the level of an Oak Tree, Buy Rite Jersey City, or Bev Depot.

A wine store (shockingly, considering the name) with a beer sideline. Way overpriced, but considering that Millburn is across the street, this shouldn’t be surprising

This place is a beautiful large building located right on the Millburn/Springfield border. Wine Library has a fantastic wine selection but a somewhat mediocre beer selection. Every time I visit the wine library I am repeatedly asked by employees if I need help. It is a very friendly atmosphere with an incredibly knowledgeable staff. I have found that the salespeople are generally more knowledgeable about wine than beer, but if you get the right person, you can have a decent conversation. I have found that many of their craft beers are a bit pricey but not to such a great extent if you are looking for a quality brew. The great thing about this place is that all beers are kept cold. They have a small seasonals section that consists of a small rack of about 8 or so beers. Bottom Line: convenient location, helpful staff, decent selection, a bit overpriced

Wine Library is a big beautiful store in Springfield. The store is located on Morris Ave, which makes it a pain in the ass to get in and out of. Thats the good news, the bad news that it’s not called the Beer Library. The selection was pretty average, the prices weren’t great, and there was very little customer service in the beer section. The owner of the store did however help me pick out a bottle of wine that he said was "highly rated" by him. I wasn’t impressed by the store’s beer selection nor was I impressed by the wine recomendation. I failed to see what all the fuss was about!

Stumbled upon this place today, and had never even heard about it. Never saw any ads in Ale Street News, Mid Atlantic, etc. Anyway, it’s right off Rt. 24 and very easy to get to. This upscale wine emporium is beautifully kept and takes up two floors! Unfortunately, only 1/3rd of the first floor is dedicated to a moderately sized, beer selection.....however, everything (yes, everything) is kept cold. Great Divide, Stone, Southern Tier, Oskar Blues, Lancaster, Cricket Hill, Victory, Saranac, Smuttynose, Weyerbacher, plenty of imports and many more, all very well represented........and at very reasonable prices. Worth the trip. (Update: It looks like they’re clearing out their beer section.......lots of empty spots in the fridge, and a big rack of "clearance" items that were priced literally pennies less than what they were before marked for clearance........I guess the uppity-ups in the neighborhood don’t like beer in the least.)
