This is the mecca!Tom , George, Chris, and Barbara, and skip are knowledgeable and super friendly. As are the patrons. My first visit with my then girlfriend was so good , we are regulars. This is what a beer bar is all about. #1 They know what to serve and how to serve it. Taps are always clean.
Place is amazing George is the godfather of the hops this man knows everything about beer from the brewers to their start to who now owns the brewery. If he doesnt know the beer your talking about it isnt worth knowing or doesnt exist.
one could argue that Andy’s is the best craft beer bar in NJ. it’s like Cheers with delicious beer. The place could be described as a hole in the wall, a magnificent hole in the wall that is. First time i went to Andy’s they were pouring founders CBS, KBS and other founders offerings. i was in heaven for a couple of hours. I’ve been back a few times since then and find good beer every time i go back. Seasonal releases are always on the list and regional rarities pop up sometimes. they also fill growlers to go! However they don’t prepare food but allow you to bring your own or order delivery. I don’t have a bad thing to say about this place. just wish it was closer to home.
I drive 30min each way to go to Andy’s. I’m closing in on my 66-beer T-shirt, in hopes of getting into the Fraternal Order of Foam. By the third time I was there, Tom knew my name and what I liked. Great place, even if they are Rangers fans.
Terrific, personable and knowledgeable staff. Cozy local pub feel. great rotating tap and bottle selection. it’s all about the beer here and the clientelle normally reflects that.
Best local pub I’ve been to.

Great bar...great beer...great people...been going there for years...love it! Always a great place for conversation...meeting new beer folks...and trying new craft brews. Andy’s is a classic!
Good place to enjoy beer. Fun to talk with the guy behind the counter. Fun beer selection on tap and a lot of bottle selections for a place relatively hidden in NJ. Reasonably priced. My favorite place in NJ, except I am seeing more not too fun crowd more frequently recently.
Andys Corner Bar is exactly what the name says, a corner bar. All are welcome to this modest tavern, locals sit next to beer geeks and day laborers. George, Barbara & Tom have created an oasis in the barren wasteland that is bergen county (well at least when it comes to beer.)
They are constantly rotating the tap and bottle selections. Their selection of craft & German brews is truly exceptional. I wish they would carry a wider selection of British and Belgium beers, but if they did I probably would never go home. They have great promo nights and specials.
The owners/bartenders are great, they are very knowledgeable about beer and sports. The first night I went there I was introduced to one of the bartenders. I returned months later and he remembered my name, what I did, and what I liked to drink. Not too shabby, it just adds a personal touch to a great beer bar. And that is something many others are lacking...a soul. Cheers
