Surprisingly good for the area, on par with Canal’s, though the prices are a tad higher here on some of the singles. But they do have a ton of singles, mostly dumped. A bit like a rummage sale, have to sort through mixed piles and haphazard assortments to find some rare nuggets. All of the local stuff, even had seven or eight packs of Heavyweight left on the shelves (this around Jan 2007!). Had some FFF, and I was impressed to see some 3 Monts. Decent Belgians and above average British selection. Just a big warehouse, but can find some rares and unusuals. [2006: 64]
Updating over six years later: the store is much better organized, much brighter and cleaner, with a much larger selection of beer, a pretty huge step forward, and I can see myself returning semi-regularly. I can’t bring myself to raise the score, however, given a beer I found in their promoted mix-a-six area; there’s no better argument for mandating packaging dates on each and every bottle and can than finding a four year old Hefeweizen! Prices are still high, and good luck finding a single for under $2.
Decent sized wine/spirits/beer outlet .... had a long wall dedicated to bottles ... most of the bottles were from local and bigger microbreweries with seasonals and nothing too rare .... had a good showing of belgian brews some from smaller obscure brewers .... scored a couple decent bottles here, but nothing too crazy .... If your in the area this place definitely will have something micro wise for you to find in a pinch and the prices were average
I’m shocked this place wasn’t in RateBeer already. It definitely has more than the basics. Several of the Jersey/PA micros are present. Belgian Selection is fairly large. German/English is decent. Single 12 oz selection is a bit thin, but there are some to be had and plenty of sixers.
This is the only place that I found in South Jersey that truly qualifies as a beer store so that is why I am suprised it wasn’t already listed.
Decent warehouse style store that is a bit unorganized. Most warehouse style stores feel at least a little "homey" or whatever, but this one feels exactly like a warehouse. The service was pretty non-existent, no one was around to help at all actually until I was leaving and one of the cashiers finally asked if I was looking for something. She was very nice and courteous though and it WAS a Monday night so I can’t really blame the lack of staff.
Selection was decent, they had nothing out of the ordinary, other than a bunch of Dogfish Head Pearl Jam beers on the shelf, which I thought odd considering it’s rare. Other than that nothing caught my eye. Prices seemed decent though, I didn’t notice any gouging (DFH Faithfull was $15).
Overall this is an okay place, but the selection is a bit scattered with beer being placed in a few places, though all near each other. I won’t go out of my way to go here again, but I’ll stop in if I’m in the area.

One of the best in South Jersey. They’ve gotten even better since Hops and Grapes opened last year. Very good selection of singles. Lot’s of hard to find items. They add new stuff all the time. Staff is friendly and helpful. Prices are good.
Good selection, not much in singles, but beers are warm which is good for long trips. Can find some rare beers here on occasion, decent amount of imports and domestic micro brews. Worth poping in if you are in the area. This is not a store, so the appearance isn;t anything great, but the beers are laid out pretty well.
Call it on the border of Pitman / Glassboro. Quite a large selection of micros, local brews, imports & quality brews; especially so in South Jersey from what I’ve seen (relocated from North Jersey). Was recommended from area forum members & lived up to billing. Just picked up a few cases of fests & Marzen’s including Victory, some Weyerbacher & Ramstein.
Very good for the area. They have SOME Three Floyds, which are hard to find around here. Also Jolly Pumpkin. The prices are warehouse cheap, and they have a singles section. Although the singles section was pretty small and no prices listed. It looked like a bottle dump when the workers found a sixer with one missing.
