I love Superstar. The guy who owns it is amazing. He knows a lot about beer and is always there to help you and have a great conversation about beer. Their selection is great, and even though it is a little hectic, there's always someone there to show you where what you're looking for is right away. Their growler station is also great. 4 different beers on tap at all times. They even take recommendations! I asked if they could dogfish head's punkin ale and the next week I came in it was there, and he notified me of the next time they were going to have it. I guess it is a little pricey. I think their Rogues are fairly priced and they have a "buy 2 'big' bottles, get a dollar off" deal which is pretty good. Not spectacular, but good. I guess their triple bock is way overpriced? but i haven't seen it anywhere else so i can't say first hand. I also love how they have a shelf up front for their seasonal brews and a sale rack of old seasonals. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for good beer with extremely knowledgeable personnel.

I must say, i have recently started tasting around. the staff at this location was very knowlegable and was able to describe to me what the beers would taste like and even explained to me alot about the types of beer. they were able to help me pick out what kinds of beers to try for my first time. their selection was amazing, they have the largest selection ive ever seen. and everytime i go in there they always have a new beer on their floor, which deffinately keeps me interested and wanting to go back and see what new stuff i can try. and their floor isalways stocked, it never looks empty. their prices are fair, they have some expensive beers but they also have inexpensive ones. the manager was able to get a special request for me from one of their other superstar locations. i would deffinately keep coming around and discovering all new types of beer.

Vibe: recently reorganized, all the best beer is right up front (used to be more down one side of the store); just a minor overhaul, but its great. Has a small, intimate feel - you know you are in a real-beer-drinker's domain.

Service: These guys know their beer. I don't know how they keep track of it all. I also don't know how they remain lucid since the guys there seem to have tried every beer ever made in the past 20 years. Chris (manager) is a fantastic fucking guy. He takes care of his regulars and has great beer knowledge.

Selection: one of the best on LI as far as I can tell. If it hits LI, they will have gotten it. If they never got it, it never hit LI. Ask for stuff you think is out but you don't see. You will be amazed by their selection at all times. A bigger overall selection than Beer City, but not necessarily better.

Prices: Their prices are on par with the other places I've shopped

I live right around the corner from this store and love it. I am there at least once a week to check out the new arrivals. Their stock is always changing and they recently added a growler filling station. the staff is always around to help you and is very knowledgeable. i have gone to other beer stores on long island in search of varoius beers and only found myself in other superstar beverage locations. The owner and manager are very beer savy and can recomend something for anyone's pallet. if you have not been there your missing out.

Being so close to Shoreline I have found that I always considered Superstar an alternative. Over the past year or so it seems like this location is really establishing itself as a "go-to" place. The staff here is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and always offering recommendations and even food pairings. The Growler fill station usually offers 4 good selections and they are constantly rotating. They are always quick to put in an order for something that they don't have. In all honesty, I rarely head up New York Avenue to Shoreline anymore as I find Superstar to be a very friendly and inviting place.

Located on Jericho Tpke, next to the Carousel.

A rather large establishment, with floor to ceilling displays.

Their selection includes: 4 varieties of Victory (including Hop Wallop and Old Horizontal), 4 types of Stoudt's (including Triple and Double IPA), all the SAs, all the SNs, all the Anchors, Dale's Pale Ale, 4 types of Mendocino, 4 types of Southampton, 5 types of Blue Point, 5 types of Brooklyn, 3 types of Acme, 2 types of North Coast (including Old Rasputin and Pranqster), Pork Slap, 4 types of DFH, 4 types of Magic Hat, LongTrail, Otter Creek, etc.

A good selection of Belgians, hefes and British ales too. They also allow mix and matching.

A large selection of macros and soda.

This place is a good alternative to Shoreline.

Great little place on Jericho.
Organization may be a bit hectic, but given the little amount of space they have I cannot blame them.
They carry several varieties from breweries like Lagunitas, Smuttynose, Victory, Goose Island, etc. Their import section is small, but packed with a bunch of crowd pleasers. A rack up front has all the seasonal beers (Octoberfests and Harvests). They had a bunch of new releases like Ommegeddon (though no chocolate Indulgence which I recently saw at Shoreline), Oat (from Southern Tier), Stone's 11th, and Sierra Nevada Harvest
That's all well and good, but I come here for two reasons:
First is the growler station. 4 taps of quality beers. When I went in last they had a Blue Point, Coney Island Lager, Kona's Fire Rock, and a DIPA from Red Hook. Typically he will have good local beers from Breweries like Southampton, Blue Point, Sixpoint, or Brooklyn with some more well known, better distributed breweries like Stone and Dogfish Head. My only complaint is that I wish that I came here and found a beer that I knew nothing about. That being said all the beers that I have seen have been good.
The second reason I come here is because of the friendly staff. Almost every time I come in I engage in a beer related conversation and they seem to be knowledgeable about their products
I will keep coming back because their growler section is great. With a good rotation and always full of good beers. Between the four available I can always find somethign I want to drink that day
