Definitely sought out this place based on its reputation and while it might be a bit overrated it is a nice beer store. The ambience is that of a warehouse. Iím from the South so I go to Total Wines and I thought it was very similar to those... but with a little more dirt and a much better selection. Nice selection of foreign and American beers. The mead and cider selection is very nice and Iím sure Iíve ever seen that much sake in one store. The staff I dealt with were very nice. Prices were solid. Parking is fine. The only complaint I have is that I found a few VERY old beers on the shelf. One IPA was marked drink by March 2011.... 17 months ago! That being said, its worth going out of your way for this one.
Awesome place to shop for beer.
great selection of American micros and tons of nice import beers.
Friendly staff that know their beer.
mixed 3 6 packs to get a lot of different tasters.
will definitely go back when driving by.
Well, Oaktree is jus tdown the street from my mother in laws house and I go there every time we visit. Bit of a warehouse feel to it but I am buying beer, not a romantic weekend! The guys and ladies there have been great adn very helpful. Very talkative which I like as well. The selection is fantastic, do they have everything, no, But most everything available in NJ. the prices seem to be very fair. Overall, it is one of my favorite beer stores probably second favorite in the US.

A nice and friendly atmosphere. A large selection of imports along the entire back wall. A very good selection of domestics hard to find micros. Staff seems very helpful and depending on who you speak with knowledgeable about the brews. Value wise a bit pricier on some more widely available brews but not too bad. Overall a very good place to by beer.
Selection of beer seems to have gone down, mostly have domestic beers you can get at other places. Single bottle shelves seem to be empty not as full as before, Seems they have cut there selection of imports in half. Although they still have a good selection of Belgium.
great foreign selection which i thought was actually better than the domestics. definately a fair amount of both. really enjoy seeing the singles section. pretty great place but a bit of a drive for myself.
Fairly small bottle shop in the middle of northern NJ, but it holds some nice surprises. Probably the best selection in the area for any type of craft beer including some pretty hard to find imports such as rarer mikkeller. Service is adequate but you usually have to ask for help if you need any, but they are very knowledgeable. Prices are a tad high but its to be expected considering the selection and location.
Wow. I was driving through new jersey and I thought that I would take a short trip off I-95 to see what this place was like. I was very impressed with the selection. They had a lot of great micro-brews that are difficult to find. The prices were decent, and they had plenty of singles. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about their beer selection. While checking out, one of the people working there gave me a free glass because I bought around 20 beers. Not just any glass, but a very nice Trappist glass. Overall, I would definitely recommend checking this place out, even if you have to drive a little out of your way.
Wonderful bottle shop. they have a great selection of domestic and international brews. lots of different styles and various hard to acquire beers. The staff is knowledgeable for the most part. the owner is always willing to take a second to chat. they always help you get something they donít have in stock.
glad i work 10 min from this place. prob the best bottle shop in NJ
Wow.Everything you could want and more. All kinds of beer that stretches for about 75 feet. And then you go around a corner and more beer is there. A tremendous selection of Belgians, Christmas, American Craft Brews. I spent about 10 minutes in the place while working but could have spent hours wondering around the isles.
Review based upon online order- Ordered last Tuesday, had it corrected Thursday (Out of stock on an item, had to sub- very quick response by them), shipped Friday, arrived today (following Tuesday)! Packed tighter than a brick &@$* house, perfect condition. The website itself can be a little tricky- could use a "new" section as previously mentioned, as well as perhaps somewhere you could check the status of your order- hence the ambiance score. Selection- holy mother of God! If you canít find it here, chances are youíre not going to find it on another site! Fantastic prices on alot of items, and even some prices are lower than what I can get here locally! Overall- I will be placing another order from them as soon as time and cashflow permits, as well as a visit in person- in my "someday" category. I just want to see how much beer they actually have crammed in there!
