The place definately reminds you af a warehouse. A long row of refrigerated beers - mainly exports, but plenty of crafts too - go along one side - The other side is of warm - again, mainly imports and some macros with some local craft beers.

I've been to plenty of liquor stores in the area, and they have the usual macros. But, at least here you find a decent selection of craft beers - the usual Sam Adams, Flying Fish, DFH, etc., and a rather wide assortment of imports.

The manager (owner?) said that they will soon be expanding their beer selection... Bottom line...while nothing overly outstanding, it's the best you'll find in the area. If you're going to LBI or Manahawkin, it's worth the stop in. The prices are a few bucks lower than average and they have a pretty wide selection.

This was pretty much THE only location that I was able to find before taking my trip out to LBI this year, which was a bit of a warning / heads-up. They boasted 900 bottles, though, so I wasn't too afraid.

A little bit of a disappointment was in store upon checking it out... 900 bottles, perhaps - a huge variety of macro offerings in all shapes and forms, both from the US and Canada. Craft line was incredibly slim, even for the locals, only offering 4 or 5 that I was able to spot. Some other staples were available - Brooklyn, Dogfish Head, Smuttynose, Sierra Nevada + a couple imports... Chimay, Ommegang, Rodenbach Grand Cru, so there's no being without anything good here.

Basically everything that was available in this location was to be found on the island itself, though, so it's not really worth going out of the way for - unless things are hairy and congested past the causeway into Ship Bottom towards Beach Haven.

Not terrible, but not at all good, either - tolerable, certainly, and enough to "survive the trip" without having to load up personal stock from home. Toms River is probably the closest place to go for a better selection if an hour or so isn't unreasonable to put aside for a drive.
