Easy to find in a South Plainfield strip mall, just look for the large íBuy Riteí sign. Oak Tree had a diverse line-up of micros, Belgians and imports. Six-packs, bombers and singles all available. Employees offered assistance at every turn. Oaktree has the best selection of beers Iíve seen so far in a Garden State liquor store.

Standard liquor store vibe. Staff is extremely friendly. Selection is a mixed bag. They seem to always have a few random things no one else on the area has but on the whole it seems to have fallen off over the last few years. Prices are also mixed. Most of the bombers seemed ok but a lot of the singles on the Mix 6 section were a little pricy. Overall pretty decent but not the destination it once was.

Apparently the previous owner was a craft beer junkie, but this place is not anything close to the descriptions and ratings itís been given here. MUCH MUCH better options in the area

A smaller liquor store with a rather poor beer selection. Most of the beers were of the widely available type, regional brews. Prices seemed fair and I did find a couple beers to buy, but I was hoping for a lot more from this place based on other reviews.

Well after reading the reviews and seeing all the high ratings for so long I decided it was finally time to check out the Oak Tree. I headed down there on a Sunday afternoon...maybe a 40 min drive from my house. So really...I totally donít get what the big deal is about this place, and I have no idea why it gets such high ratings other than from people who live nearby. I would not go out of my way to frequent this place...but obviously Iíd shop here if I lived very close. The problem is that the selection really isnít that great at all. There is one aisle of US craft beers and maybe a half aisle of import craft beers. Very little here was that special with a few exceptions (nice slection of Mikeller single hop series). The prices were not great...in fact to make the trip not be a total waste of my time I built 2 six packs of 12 oz singles. When they rang them up I noticed the prices varied considerably from $2.29 to $5.49 each with the high end being a 12 oz can of Oscar Blues Ten Fidy. Bottomline...Iíll pay a little extra for something special...nothing really special here. If you want to know how a craft beer store is done right...take a visit to Liquor Outlet Wine Cellars in Booton (see my review on that place). In all fairness...the people at Oak Tree were friendly to me...but for reasons Iíve mentioned I really think this place is greatly overrated as a craft beer store.

Prices are reasonable, employees were friendly and offered help, selection of US craft was a bit run-of-the-mill when I stopped in, but still solid. Import selection looked pretty decent. Worth a stop if in the area.

Just made my first trip to Oak Tree, and I was pretty impressed. Warehouse liquor store feel. 2 Main beers Isles. A nice American beer isle with a pretty good selection. It looked a little picked over today. The foreign section was even nicer looking, with quite a few offerings available. It was pretty empty, and I didnít ask for much help, and I wasnít really offered any either. Prices were fine, but nothing special. This one is definitely one of the top stores in the state.

A decent warehouse full of beer and liquor. Much better than anything Iíve seen in the area. They had a great selection of Belgian and other imported beer that Iíd never heard of so that was nice. One of the employees looked like he didnít trust me as he kept watching me from the end of every isle I walked down. When checked out I asked the guy behind the counter if he could recommend a good beer bar in the area and he said there was one in a hotel but he couldnít remember the name. It was a nice place anyway.

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.

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.
