I only started shopping here recently and I'm kicking myself for not going sooner
Selection- Very large selection of 6-packs and Bombers, both warm and cold. Just about every craft brewery that distributes in New Jersey is available here and a large Belgian selection also
Service- The beer manager here knows his stuff and is always getting new items in weekly from all around the country and world.
Valve- This is the only liquor store that I have ever been to where they have a large selection of craft beer that is on sale (Founders, Climax off the top of my head for example) (compared to the weekly specials on 30-packs of macros at most stores). All prices are well within a reasonable range
Overall, highly recommended if you are in the area, everyone talks about Oak Tree, I think the selection is comparable minus some vintage stuff, but the prices are much better.

Went there today and they're selection of beers has increased! It had already been very good. Reasonably priced too. A lot of premier micro breweries represented here. Feels like being at a beerfest of six packs and bigger bottles. Also they have set up some very good displays showing the beers for the season. Seems like they are committed to being a great beer store. Overall a great beer journey! Check it out. Will give Oak Tree Liquors a run for their money. I'll keep checking out both for the best brews and the best values! Beer on!!!

This is one of my weekly stop in places to see whats coming in. they always have seasonal beers that just came out and your year round favorites as well.
staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. they will b/s with you about beer, suggest, and thank you for stopping in. more like talking in a bar than being sold something in a store.
the real benefit of this place is that you can just hang out in there and look around and no one will be pushy.
and they also have various tastings during the week!

My local go-to beer store that always has a great selection of new releases, seasonals, imports, etc. They also have a large selection of wine and cheese. Pete, the beer manager, knows his beer and is very friendly and willing to chat. All the other employees are friendly too. Prices aren't bad, especially for limited release beers where some other stores will gouge you. Everything is very clean as well; there aren't many dusty bottles. Definitely check this place out if you're from the area!

Nice enough shop but not all that close to Oak Tree in my opinion. The selection is smaller with many fewer singles to choose from. With so many beers I've yet to try I don't always want to buy a six if I don't have too. Wine and Beverage Depot in Totowa is a lot closer to home and they let me break up sixers ever though it's not really their policy to do so.
Clean, well-lit, with very fair prices and a wide variety of wines, cheeses and snacks. Staff seemed friendly and helpful enough. Not all that many oddities or rarities I can't find elsewhere in the state, although I did pick up a bottle of Black Albert, Climax 15th anniversary and FW double jack, each of which are not things I've seen in other stores. They also have a full selection of the other Climax beers but I wasn't in the mood to buy a growler today. Overall not a bad store at all but certainly not a must-see, in my estimation

Passed by this place hundreds of times before finally walking in the door. Now I'm kicking myself so waiting so long, because it's just head and shoulders above the other local options. You'll find stuff you won't get elsewhere, plain and simple. Your average liquor store wouldn't put vintage Bigfoot on the shelf, but this one did. I suppose it's a little pricey, buy if you're looking at this I imagine you're willing to spend a bit more for the good stuff. If you're into beer and like having 100 good options to choose from, this is where you want to go.

I live 5 minutes from Shoprite of Westfield and 15 minutes from the vaunted Oak Tree BuyRite, and I probably haven't been to Oak Tree in over a year. Shoprite Westfield has an excellent selection of craft beer at decent prices. They always seem to get a good allocation of the must-haves, which is great. Pete, the beer manager (ATPete on BA), keeps a steady flow of new beer on the shelf and has gone out of his way on more than one occasion to score me hard-to-get stuff. Thanks Pete! Even in the off-chance Pete is not around, I have always been pleased with the rest of the beer crew and their knowledge of what they have on the shelf.

Shop Rite Liquors of Westfield has a great selection of rare, imported and micro brewed beers (I was told that there are over 400 different beers). I would highly recommend this store for the beer connoisseurs. I enjoy walking around and just reading labeles of different beers. The down side is that it is very hard to make a decision what I want to buy. I want to buy everything I've not tried before. Besides beers there is huge selection of wines, spirits, imported cheeses. The prices are on the high side though.

Prices are very reasonable without any price gouging for rarer finds. That said some of the stock can become dated and it can be difficult to tell just how fresh your purchase is. If you can get a hold of the few people who know their stuff they can help with your purchase. I have had issues calling up and asking if they have a beer in stock and was told they do to find it isn't available and won't receive their shipment for another week or two (just the other day asked for Nugget Nectar). That said they offer the best selection in the area, but I've found Oak Tree Buy Rite worth the drive for better service at a slightly increased price.
