I’m not sure if they’ve cut down, but I found their selection a little lacking. Less than one row of beers (one side was refrigerators and the other shelves). Did find the Smutty Nose Big A IPA and a couple other good beers there. They also had up a couple RateBeer Shelf tags.
It seems that beer is not a priority here anymore. Don’t get me wrong, they still have a selection. Most of the cooler space is dedicated to macros, but there are some regionals...Smuttynose, Yards, Flying Fish, Victory. They have a shelf of Belgians and and other imports. Not worth going out of your way for, but worth a stop if you are in the area and looking for something to take home. Compare this to Foodery in Philly, State Line in Elkton, etc., this place sucks. But I was staying in Mt Laurel, so I picked up some Smuttynose IPA.
Popped in because I was in the area and was hoping that things were looking up. Well, it seems they’ve lost their interest in being one of the better retailers of craft beer in NJ. That’s fine. What beer was there was all in good shape, but nothing out of the ordinary to rival even the regular Shop-Rites or Spirits.
25 minutes south of Trenton. Mediocre selection. Very few single bottlse. I did find a few good bigger bottles - Allagash 4, Smuttynose Imperial Stout and Big A IPA. Long wall of coolers full of cases and sixpacks - a few good local selections like RiverHorse. Stop in if you’re nearby, but don’t go out of your way.
Great stop that is like a mile off of 295. They have a wide selection of regional micros and internationals without too much mark up. They usually don’t sell out of rarities, which I snake whenever I can.
I went here on the way to a gathering at the Grey Lodge Pub about a year ago, only to be a bit disappointed - the place is listed as "essential" but I couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary for a good tasting among RB’rs. some local, regional, and belgians, but this place is more of a "good" in the scheme of things. very nice to get beer and other stuff for a party, though!
Used to have an excellent selection, its much smaller now. No Westys, nothing unusual. Guess that shelf space went to faster selling beers to pay for the new building. Maybe they will return to above average again someday.
This place has changed dramatically in the last few years. About 2-3 years ago they knocked the whole building down and moved it back about 30 feet and expanded it. The result is a store that is much cleaner, and has an expanded wine. beer selection. They do sell singles at times, they are locate right near the imported ale’s section. Most of them tend to be imported as you could imagine. Its a decent store, nice staff, and mostly regional beers.

I’ve only discovered this place recently, so I can’t tell which way the quality is going. But it is the one of the best in the Cherry Hill / Mt. Laurel area. Prices are average. Better than the Circle Liquor in Trenton, but no singles.
I’d say the floorspace is about 1/4 beer, and they’re lite on macros, with extra space for quality brews. They had 4 Stone varietys but no Stone seasonals as far as I’ve seen, SOME bigger bottles of dogfish head.
This place blows, if you plan on buying micro beer just keep driving past. Don’t waste your time in here they have nothing to offer. Canal’s is right down the road and I know for a fact they will have what you are looking for rather than this place.
