Unlike a lot of liquor stores in New Jersey, this one doesn’t hide it’s beer and choke off the floor space. I’d say about a 1/3 of the store is beer and its on the left side of the store without the bombers along the left wall and the coolers in the back. Though they stack the BMC high and deep they are also thoughtful in their beer selections with the strength being regional craft. They had a small pick-six section but the prices there, as well as the rest of beer section, were very good. I can’t say the service was amazing but it’s very close to 287 so it’s easy to get to. Is it one of the top bottle shops in the region? No, but it’s not a bad place to stop on the way to somewhere’s else.
Pretty good selection of local and smaller brewers here, a worthwhile selection of singles, but the main business here is 6 packs. Better than some of the bigger (or formerly bigger) beer stores in this part of the state.

Best beer store in North Jersey without a doubt. Nothing else comes close! Their "wall of beer" with laminated information cards for each beer is a great touch. The people are friendly and they are always asking if they can help you. The wine selection and prices are great too.
A good beer store strategically located right next to highway 287. New-Jersey is a nice state for beer shopping squeezed in-between two other nice states for beer shopping (PA, NY). In most other states this would be an amazing beer selection, but in New-Jersey this one is only slightly above average. Medium-large in size, about 75% American micros and 25% imports. All the Flying Fish, Schafly, Terrapin, some very limited Cricket Hill, etc, etc. Impersonal service, good prices. There are a few better beer stores in NJ (Oak Tree comes to mind) but for the beer geek traveling along the 287 this is a can’t miss, literally next to the highway, a 1 minute detour.
A rather large beer selection. nice selection of regional beers hard to find elsewhere. Prices seem very fair given the location and regional beers are rightly lower priced. a great stop if you are in the area.
A nice selection of 750 ml and 22 oz bottles. Nice range of local beer to include a nice size cooler for cold beer to go. A very easy on - easy off from route 287. Somewhat decent prices, nothing to high or outrageous. Also a good range of styles. The staff was very friendly and two cute girls working the register. When I travel past this way to visit family, I will be stopping here again.
In Newark for the week and went to scout out some local places and came across this one. The store is fairly large with a good selection of spirits, wine and beer. While they call everything from Bud Light and up, the craft brew selection is extensive with good representation of both foreign and domestic brews. Good selection of 22 oz and larger bottles. Most 12 oz. bottles are by the 6-pack though. The beers are sorted by country rather by style, but it’s easy to browse through. Each beer have a laminated info card attached. It would be perfect if they also displayed the rating there - RateBeer of course! Staff is friendly but ultimately just there to take your money.

This is my local bottle shop. Selection has become 150 percent better over the last year or two, the new beer manager has done a very good job. Prices are also very good, for example: 4.50 for a rochefort 6 or 8, 5 for a rochefort 10. They have a nice selection of belgians, bombers, and a huge selection of six packs, although if you are used to the selection at somerville super saver or Oak Tree, you may be a bit dissapointed. Cons: no selection of singles at all. Update: This store just keeps getting better. The selection is still growing and now they seem to get all the limited release bombers and 750’s in right away. I feel lucky that I have a bottle shop like this right down the street from me.
