A large portion of this store is craft beer, with parts of what I have seen elsewhere, and very neat and organized. I met the beer manager, Dan who is an owning partner and clearly a beer enthusiast. Totally unique was Nogne and a few other Scandavians, also retired Sam Adams special series bottles. Great service from Dan. On the drawback side, the backup cashier had some neurons misfiring and held me up until Dan rescanned. Hopefully this will not dis other people in a hurry. Prices were not as high as New York CIty, but not as cheap as other very good stores in New Jersey. 2013 update: Substantively less imports find their way here, however an effort on locals and small breweries, and meads.

Always liked Oaktree, but lately has become my favorite. Outstanding store for beers - probably best in central NJ. Great beer talk with Dan and others. Yes, the wall of singles is always a plus, and some interesting things like cave-aged Ommegang 04. I can promise you that this place should have an "Essential" or "excellent" in the front for ratings. Oh, I forgot about the free glasses. .....thanks again Dan!

Killer beer selection. Long row of singles in the back. Lots of great beer, broken out by imports and domestics. Great service, spoke with Dan who answered any questions I have. A new favorite when in town.

This is a great store - they have a much smaller space than a lot of liquor stores, but they use it quite well - the place is very clean, well-lit, and extraordinarily well-organized (reminds me of half time, but in a much smaller space) - they seem to have pretty much anything available to them, and they do their best to keep the shelves stocked - this is probably the closest store to NY in which Iíve seen FFF bombers - the staff is very helpful, but since Iím antisocial I kept blowing them off - I wish I hadnít - next time Iíll let them know how far I traveled to make a visit.

This place kicks serious ass! Huge selection of beer which could all be purchased in singles. My new favorite stop in Northern Jersey. Thanks to Dan and Jay for hooking me up with the beautiful Tripel Karmeliet glass. This place is a MUST stop....

Great freakng store, best service ever. Dan is really the man. He hooked me up big time. Place is really clean and they keep expanding. They get everything first, prices are good. Great selection, even carry the Climax growlers. Lots of locals, the regular Belgians, the expensive Italians beers, lots of singles. They make a Christmas section and a new arrivals section. Great place, and great owner.

This has quickly become my favorite beer store in all of NJ. Been there 3 or 4 times so far and have had a great experience every time. Huge selection, with a large number of singles. They get just about every new beer released in, and post new arrivals on their website as well as email it out to ratebeer and beer advocate members. Belgian/import aisle is also huge. You wonít find any dusty bottles at this store, everything is clean and extremely well organized. As for the service, best I have encountered at any bottle shop, period. Dan the owner is always very accessibile and friendly. Likes to talk beer also, which seems pretty rare when it comes to most stores Iíve been to. Other employees such as Jay, one of the beer managers are also very friendly and go out of their way to help you out. Prices are competitive, especially in the singles aisle. If you are a beer enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to check out this store, even if it takes you 45 minutes + to get there. Thatís about how far I have to drive, and I would probably go there even if it was twice as far.

My first visit and I immediately knew these folks got it. Right off Iím greeted by the top-100 shelves, new arrival displays, and another specialty shelf area. Then I noticed the long aisle lined on one side with at least 500 different beers. Maybe the best selection of domestics Iíve seen, served up supermarket style. After working my way down I find another bank of shelves in the back with the Belgians. Nice complete line of Cantillon but no rarities. Stiil very strong. They also seemed to have every new release I was looking for.

This is one of the best places to go for beer in NJ. Dan, the Owner/manager knows his stuff and is always willing to talk beer. The best advantage that oak tree has over somerville supersaver, is that Oak tree has tons of singles and they arent marked up nearly as much. He does have some vintage stuff- especially great selection of vintage DFH stuff- mostly a bunch of years of 120 min and WWS. His Belgian section is expanding every week. Prices are also very good.

Was there today for the first time, and I have to say I was extremely impressed. Huge selection of beers, including many, many singles. Talked to the owner, Dan who is a very knowledgeable beer guy. Clued me in to what was new and what was coming in the near future. Also let me pick out a beer glass of my choice for free. Great selection, great service! Canít ask for much more than that.
