Really the only place to shop in the area if your looking for selection, quality, and freshness. A nice little corner of the stores has tons of beer selections including 8 doors of cold craft 6packs, 1 door of cold craft bombers, and an entire aisle of specialty bottles. Huge selection for making your own 6 pack and the best selection of FRESH exotic imports I have found. They get all the hard to find stuff like 120 min and KBS (even some of the REALLY hard to find stuff like Double Dose and Eclipse 50-50 variants) and are good about holding bottles for loyal customers. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and wont let you leave with something you wont enjoy for the sake of selling an item they need to get rid of. Did I mention FRESH? I've seldom found anything out of code here and when I asked the one guy he was very honest about when everything had come in telling me to avoid a certain bottle because it might be past it's prime (and then offered me a discount on it if I really wanted it) Love this place!

Not many places better than this. Awesome craft selection and one of the few places around that has a good sour selection. Jamie is ridiculously helpful and can always find something for you based on exactly what you are looking for.

What an awesome place! You'd never think that this relatively unknown store would be such a craft beer haven, but it is!

Staff is friendly and knowledgable, but the star here is the beer manager, Jamie. He is very helpful and uses his expertise to find the beer you want, and not just what they need to sell. He's hand picked a diverse selection of beers that all seem to go quickly. I've never had an old bottle from here. Their prices are great too, and I love their mix six pack.

They seem to get all of the rare beers, like Maine, Founders Limited series, and some crazy imports that most places haven't even heard of.

This place is the Shore area's best kept secret. The secret is getting out though.

They've been in business for about 60 years now which is impressive with the amount of discount chain liquor stores around them. Consistently have the lowest prices on beer in the area as well as the most helpful staff.

The staff here is knowledgeable and helpful. They probably have the biggest mix a 6 pack section in Ocean County and give 10% off on mixed sixes. Huge selection of cold craft beer! Theyre also pretty good about getting a lot of the rare stuff in like dfh 120 minute.

Every once in a while they do a thing called beer school in which you sign up and pay $10 (which you get back when you show up at the event) and get to sample and learn about beer. These events usually have a brewery rep or a brewer present to guide every one along. It's a really good time.

They do same type of events for wine for anyone interested in attuning their palettes to the joys of fine wine as well.

But like I said before, the best part about this place is the staff. They'll stop whatever they're doing to make sure you find and get the product you need and even help you if you're undecided about what to get. They'll even take a half hour of their day to explain to you why a certain product is what it is if you're interested.

Best place in the area for wine and craft beer for sure.
