this place has a lot of obscure belgians, rare items that they seem to get from hunterton beer. lots of rogue, smuttynose, and other regional craft brewers. they might not get the rarest of the rare, but a good local spot. consequently, the good stuff gets swiped up very quickly - e.g. HW stuff mostly gone now, and nugget nectar got eaten by locusts.

This used to be my go to before I found a place like Liquor Outlet in Boonton. The selection here is decent, but the prices are pretty high compared to other places I shop. I always look around the beer selection and I donít think Iíve ever been asked if I needed help once. Also, I bought a Founders KBS here a couple years ago and they hiked up the price about $8 more than another store that I bought one from. Npw a days, I only stop in if Iím passing the place and I donít feel like driving anywhere else for beer.

Great beer selection, a lot of 22oz and singles on the side of the store. Prices are average, maybe a little high on certain breweries. My only complaint, is be sure to check the dats on the IPAs. For example, i purchased a pack of sixpoint ipa on 12/30/11 but the cans were marked drink by 12/6/11. The souther tier 2ipa store temperature had a DOB of 8/12/11, purchased on 12/30/11.

I had to travel to PA for a family get-together and since this place is right off I-80 decided to stop in and break up the trip a little. The store is pretty standard wine/liquor/beer supermarket style layout. The beer selection is good, although I wouldnít call it great and is definitely a notch below the top bottle shops in NJ. They had a decent selection of singles, although the prices were quite high. For example, Sierra Nevada Beer Camp 12 oz. bottles at $2.99 each. They did have a nice selection of sakes, and I ended up picking up a few of those and left some beers on the shelves. I am glad I stopped in and found a few items to bring home, but I wouldnít make this a regular stop.

I love this place. Always has an amazing selection of beers (and wine and spirits too). I find new releases, rarer beers, and the popular brands. (As well as the macros)
My one knock would be that what they have in variety they sometimes lack quantity. For example, the Sam Adams Winter Sampler was in and out before I knew it.

Not as nice in terms of atmosphere as the place we stopped just before (Garyís) but what they lacked in big lighting and new construction they more than made up for when it came to the sake selection. Lots of cool new things that I havenít seen around and of the three places we stopped that day this was the one where we spent the most (both time and money) and left with the most. Impressive sake selection, beer selection was pretty good, service was quick and friendly and this of the three we stopped was the one Iím most looking forward to visiting again.

This is my spot. One of the largest selection of Belgiums and Craft beers in NJ. Up there with Buy Rite in JC and Boonton. Just below Oak Tree, the king of NJ spots. Updated 10-22-11: I left my name and number about 4 weeks before the CBS release and the clerk said I was the second person who had asked about it. Yet when they went to release the 12 bottles they received they called and said I was too far down the list. Very disappointing. I know a lot of people missed out on this beer, but I had my name in before a list was even started and I spend a lot of money there. As you can note, I am the mayor. So take this for whatever itís worth.

Selection is good, sometimes you find a gem. Prices are ok and service is good, manager is knowledgeable.

I live nearby so I stopped in one day when I had some time to íkillí. On the way in they have a sign in the window NJís Best Craft and Import Beer Store (or something like that), I was a bit skeptical.
However once inside I was pleasently surprised a nice selection of micros, imports, in 6/4 packs, 750ís, bombers, singles, etc. A very nice selection including locals (although they seemed to be missing area brewery Ramstein?), national micros, and european imports. They also had an extensive selection in the cooler which is always a bonus if stopping on the way home.
Overall among the best stops in Northern NJ, I will be by again.
