I had to travel to PA and saw this place listed as Essential and decided to make a stop. The store is a large space with the beers kept at the far right of the store in two long aisles. The aisle with imports and micros is a freaking nightmare. What a mess! There are singles on the left side of the aisle with a terrific selection. I saw beers there I havenít come across any place else. I picked up several vintage bottles including a 1996 JW Lees and a four pack of 2004 Thomas Hardy among several others. The right side of the aisle has six-packs and is in horrid shape. Stuff strewn all about. It was difficult to reach some of the items on the shelves with all the cases and six packs piled in front. In addition, most of the beers had no price listed. When I asked for help, the person who helped me said he didnít know much about beers, only where the bottles were on the shelves. This place has the potential to be a superb store, and looking at some of the older reviews, it looks like it once was. The selection is the best I have ever seen, but it needs better organizing and they need some knowlegable staff.

they have a lot of beer. the folks try to help out and they are engaging. they sell singles but at inflated prices. the place is somewhat disorganized. i didnít like paying $2.49 for a single when you are selling the six for $7.49. but i did end up buying quite a few different bottles.

Dirty and disorganized. Donít trip while shopping here. Prices and selection are good (both beer and wine). Not recommended for those unwilling to roll-up their sleves and do some digging.

A very accessible place from major highways, Super saver has a pretty nice selection of domestic micros and imports, plus a nice amount of vintage brews. I canít say how this was back in the day, but the selection is still pretty good especially for us PA folks. Prices on most 4 and 6 packs are not much more per beer than buying entire cases in PA. Staff was pretty good, but there were so many boxes stacked up in the beer aisle that I nearly broke a few bottles. Worth the trip based on overall price and selection.

I had been going here almost every week forever........Well, Iím sorry to say my past favorite beer store is gone downhill (apparently under new ownership). Disorganized, messy, and rude. Nothing new for beer and in dissarray (I heard they fired their Beer Manager for not rotating stock). Actually, he had a vintage beer section - they were all barleywines.
Found some of those lost beers on the floor next to bud light - 4 cases of Westveltleren 8!!!! THEY WOULDN"T sell me any. Not a bottle. Rude bastards too.
My advice - go to OAKTREE in S. Plainfield NJ, the new best place for great brews, excellent + friendly folks.

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.

Yes they have great belgians, UKs, Europeans, etc., but the vintage selections have been dwindling. so many RB and/or BA people have been going to this place for so long that itís well beyond no secret. itís tough to get new stuff here unless you act quickly. after shopping here for a year or so, Iíve also noticed thereís less new stuff coming in. Iíll keep going back, but Iím glad it doesnít cost me $100+ anymore for each visit.

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 SíExtra, Fort, Golden Shower), Orval, Allagash, and they had a decent number of vintage beer, some was expensive and some was not.
