Decent little beer section. Nothing too exciting and prices arenít great. They get bonus points for always having special Kane bottle releases (Morning Bell, Night to End All Dawns). The people who work there seem anxious to help. Biggest issue is the selection rarely changes. Has potential though.

Small selection but, usually has some gems (Allagash, MBC, Kane). Pretty nice singles rack with most of the main craft breweries represented like founders, stone, dfh, SN, etc. so it's good for grabbing that one you haven't had. The staff is helpful and pretty knowledgeable.

Lower selection but what they sell on a whole is better. Prices seem about $2.00 more than local stores. They do sell single beers but the lions share of the display is outside beer area on end cap of next aslie. Beer display sometimes is also in main walkways, on top of deli counters etc.

Selection better than average for a liquor store, but prices are way out of line, ($11.99 for River Horse 6packs) and the novelty of buying beer in a supermarket isnít worth that much. [@willblake: Every chain gets 2 licenses in NJ; have fun hunting for them! Trader Joeís probably makes the best use of this law at their stores in Westfield and West Windsor...]

Hit up this place on my way home from Spirits, Red Bank. Nothing.

A shocking find: beer in an NJ grocery store. I still donít understand what loophole allows this.

Selection covered many brands, semi local stuff like Victory, Ommegang, Stoudts, etc. Not great coverage of each brand. Some surprising finds like Tripel Karmeliet, St. Peters, Maredsous. Single beers not available, i.e. no broken six-packs. Not that I had any questions, but I was staring at the beers for 15 minutes and nobody asked if I needed help. For what itís worth, there was VERY helpful staff throughout the rest of the store.

Worth the trip if you canít make it a couple miles south to Spirits in Red Bank, I guess.
