Best beer store ever (well at least best store I have ever been to). I have only been here once but I have been blown away. Forget any NY store, this is the cream of the crop. Why, you say? Well, first its really not that hard to see off the road. its prety much the tallest building in a string of a strip mall. Then it has the cheap, treasure hunt like appeal (akin to New Beer) with a large selection (akin to Halftime). Messy but full of stuff. There are so many treasures hidden around the store that it is ridiculous. Well, first the regular selection is big, lots of local micros, can get singles, lots of belgians. I know when I read the other reviews and they say lots of Belgians and Fantomes, i think, eh, big deal. But there are rare, never seen before belgians, in large quantities. Some things I was looking for that I found, Bethlehem Rude Elfs Reserve, some 3Fs, and plenty of Sly Fox. The good surprises were some Allagash 10th, its been a year and I havent seen it anywhere. Well there were more. But on top of that these are the best prices I have seen anywhere. The help was very, well, helpful, knew there shit and didnt bother me. SO overall this was good, but the thing that takes the cake is their vintage beers. Lots of vintage beers hidden around. My suggestionm, get in there look at every hole and talk to the staff. You will not be dissapointed.

Ugly location, typical dim-lighted atmosphere (though for me, what makes the ambiance is the attitude of the stunned people you are shopping with and the possibility to seek through wooden crates and find treasures), large, smallish aisles without too much order. Incredible selection boasts a ton of rarities at exceptional prices, there are even quite a few vintages stuff, mostly from belgians and you see the cases they are aging, MartinT mentioned the stuff worth seeking out (+ alpha king, vervi lion, zywiec porter..) more deeply though I think we cleared the vervifontaine blonde stash. The kind of disorganised store that gives a lot of fun seeking through the dusty bottles. Maybe jeroboams and larger bottles. Absolutely fun shopping experience, with the service being basically unused by us, but fast at the cash, if not going the extra lenght of offering free glassware or holding the long conversation we have at Half Time. Still, hard to pick a favorite between Half Time and Somerville’s. Maybe Half Time when Somerville has no Vervifontaine.

This place is great. A full service discount liquor store with an amazing selection of beers and a bunch of guys who know their stuff. They keep special stuff off the shelves and only give it out to people who are educated enough to ask for it. So keep that in mind.

An abysmal store front in a downtrodden strip mall in suburban New Jersey. Yuck. Then you walk and see this immense liquor warehouse. And then you run for the beer section, and your jaw drops. You pick it up to tell your friends what you found. They run to you excitedly to do the same with their discoveries. Amazing. Lots of American micros, a little disorganized, but all reasonably priced, and 6 packs are breakable. The Belgian section is candy for the eyes, with many lambic vintages, very rare finds, nooks and crannies which make you want to play beer detective to seek out an old bottle of something special. Panil Barriquée, Fantôme Brise-Bonbons, Vervifontaine Blonde, Cantillon vintages up the ying-yang, Hanssens lambics in 750mls for less than 9$US, mini-kegs of Schlenkerla products including the Urbock (!!), and I could go on for a long time. A selection as impressive as Half Time, in a dustier and more chaotic setting, but with a few more special bottles, and a few less American micros. But I’m nitpicking, these two stores are the best I have ever seen, and belong in the firmament of beer lovers’s essential stores.

Great place, lots of vintages, Belgians, micros, sakes, whatever! Service took a little while to attend to me, but once they did, was very helpful. Even picked up a bottle of Still Nacht Reserva! But it may have ben his last.

I actually had no problem finding the store and did not h ave the issue of crossing tons of lanes of traffic and I did find a exit 17 on 287 south. I have to say the selection is amazing and being from PA the prices are really cheap compared to where I normally get bottles. I was asked by at least 4 different people while in the beer section if I needed help and while I was there the eight guys that were working in the beer section began to talk about how they got a bad rep on ratebeer.com which I found amusing. The only negative I can think of is the carts are pretty wide for the isles and no one helped me carry out my two wine boxes of beer. The selection was great and included Fantome, De Dolle, Westmalle, at least 10 types of Unibroue, DFH (World Wide Stoutm Raisen S’Extra, Fort, Golden Shower), Orval, Allagash, and they had a decent number of vintage beer, some was expensive and some was not.

Strange to find and a lot out of the way for me, yes NJ is actually a big state (Going South to North) and watch out for the immediate merge across 3 lanes if coming from 206 North. Other than that I’ll sing Steve’s praises again, I was coming from a trip to New England and he set aside some Interlude for me. Store front is as said, crappy. Selection is very good, never thought I’d find one like this in NJ, good Belgian vintages and excellent selection of micros

Yeah, it’s a pain in the ass to drive to and the ambience is on the low side. But the selection is out of this world. I just got back from a lunchtime trip here, and I came back with DFH Impy Pils and Fort, Smutty Wheat Wine, Unibroue 15, Zywiec porter, Heavyweight SDLS varieties, Bethlehem Rude Elf, and even a Stoudt’s Anniversary from 2001. There are 4 left if anyone can beat me to them...

This store has done an about face into a great store. More shelving took what used to be a disaster of cases stacked everywhere and turned it into something you can look at. Howie the beer manager really knows his inventory and he has no problem with climbing up onto the shelves to get something or even to check if he has something. If you need help, ask for him. Nice selection of belgians including nice vintages. Check this store out.

Super Saver lives up to the hype! Steve, the beer guy, put aside a bottle of Peche Mortel for me...and I had never met Steve or even been to Super Saver before! Now, that’s service! Besides jam packed aisles of great beers, there is also a selection of vintage stuff that seems to have been well cared for, but you will pay a price ($$) for this luxury. I was offered help by two dudes besides Steve. If there’s a chance of finding something rare and new in NJ, this seems to be the place to check first.

If you’re interested, their wine selection is also very good.
