This place is by far one of the best stores around...they have a great selection and a really big cooler packed with micros and craft beers. I drove 45 mins. there to pick up my first 6 pack from Stone Brewery!! The owner is really friendly and walked me through the huge beer selection to help me find what I was looking for. His beer knowledge was well above par which was also a nice, rare find. This place is a top rate destination store for fans of the good stuff, definitely a place worth driving to!!
This place is a life saver. A real beer drinkers liquor store (although they do have a large wine selection.)They always have a display in the store with all new products and seasonal brews which seems like they upgrade just about every two weeks. A more extensive selection of single 12 oz beers then anwhere else around, and an entire wall of 22oz. bottles and larger. There’s a few guys and a younger kid who all know a lot about beer and never seem to mind walking around the store and answering any questions. All around a great store with a huge selection, and they keep a really good atmosphere with pink floyd the doors and other good music to listen to while you shop.
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.
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.
This is one of the best stores in all of North Jersey. Knowledgeable staff, great selection and recommedations at the front of the store for new brews in stock. I can spend an hour in this place just reading labels.

People.. I have been talking about this place for over a year. Just call ahead, Matt is the main man, and he is making this place A BEER lovers mecca. Call to see if he is there.
I live nearby so I stopped in one day when I had some time to ’kill’. On the way in they have a sign in the window NJ’s 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, 750’s, 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.
