I happened to have stumbled upon this place the other day...wow, pretty impressive.

First things first, a vast wine and alcohol selection...it is a true market, where they sell food, cheese, etc...offer wine tastings and sell glasses, etc...fresh coffee too

From a beer perspective...it may not be the largest beer selection I have ever seen, but it is a quality selection....many Belgian, German, English, etc, brands I have never seen before...

One of the only places I have ever seen Climax beer available...

They carry all the NJ micro stuff, Flying Fish, Cricket Hill, Climax, Ramstein, etc...

Good choice of countrywide microbrews too...unique stuff I have never seen in other stores...many upstate NY and New England brand names

A good selection of single bottles available as well....which allows you to sample a style before investing in the six pack...

Great place...I hope to be in the area more often and if so, I found my new beer store.

Good beer place considering its a wine shop. If you know your beer and check for freshness then there are some good brews to be had with some prices on the cheaper side. Getting someone to help you or answer questions can be an issue, but the selection is very good and there are never really long lines. A good place to shop while I'm in the area.

This place hasn't been reviewed in a few years. Their selection is pretty vast -- they have a very long aisle devoted to craft, with about 5 or 6 fridges in the back devoted to it as well. Service is alright, but no one REALLY into the craft scene -- like many NJ places this seems more like a wine-focused store. They always seem to have local NJ stuff though, from the good (Carton) to the bad (Cricket Hill).

WAY too many IPAs that are 4-5 months old, though.

There are also lots of IPAs sitting at room temperature, while some less sensitive beers - like stouts and such - are taking up room in the fridges. They should start prioritizing IPAs to be stored cold, as they should be to retain the hop profiles. I have to skip over an entire aisle when looking for IPAs in fear of getting old or not-stored-correctly product. Apart from that it's worth a visit though.
