this place has been around forever (or as long as I can remember). located across the street from a shoprite grocery store and like any NJ booze store it sells it all. beer, wine, and liquor, all in one spot.

when you initially walk in, this shop is just about as average as you get. rows of wine and liquor with the important stuff only getting half a row. tons of macro 30-packs/cases line the back wall and make their presence known in the cooler as well. as for the good stuff, a few sixes are kept in the cooler but the majority are kept on the half row of ambient storage.

international selection is almost as average as you can get. easily found english and german breweries represented and not much else. similar to the international selection, the american craft section is mostly easily found brews as well. an emphasis on NE breweries and NJ breweries (river horse, long trail, found some bombers from rock art as well) are your best bet to find something unique. otherwise, the occasional 'rare' bottle is here (i remember seeing firestone 14 there), but dont count on much.

i have never sensed anything impressive about the service. typically there are two people behind the register and maybe one employee walking around. if you ask for help i dont see why they wouldnt help out, but i have never had to.

i usually check this place out when i am home since it is very close, but there are definitely better shops in nj.

I'm up in this area every weekend so I stop and pick up some weekend beer. Larry the beer manager is a great guy who knows his stuff. Hooked me up with firestonewalker 16, bourbon county stout, bcbcs, etc. this place is a regular for me...great selection (no founders though) and the service has been excellent. Larry knows his beer and hooks a dude up with some great stuff. Definitely stop by and see for yourselves
