nice selection of craft brews that they have been expanding the past two years. They have several large coolers so can get cold craft bombers six-packs and twelve packs. I like 5liter mini kegs. You can get BMC stuff,some good wines and a variety of hard liqour. Mix-a six is also available.

Definitely a great beer store. They have a mix your own six-pack, one of my favorite things a store can have. The selection is great, had a few beers I hadn't seen anywhere else. This place is definitely a go to for craft beer. Right on par with the store across 18. It works out perfectly because you have to pass one on the way to the other so I can't see myself not stopping at both.

did like this place. good service. good singles selection (bombers and 12oz) and with the 12oz (and close sizes) you can mix the six and knock off 5%. honest staff, good selection. weird location, busy road, traffic. but yea one of the best selections in central NJ

Great place for craft beers. I used to use their more famous neighbor (Rte 18 marketplace) but Wine World has better prices on just about everything. Dan knows his stuff and is enthusiastic. Love getting my beer mail every Friday. They also do a good job of turning over the product--some places overstock on items to make it seem like they have a ton of things. Wine World has a fantastic selection, but seem to go more for quality over quantity.

Went to this store since Kane posted they sent a case of Morning Bell to their store. Called ahead, said they had 6 or 7 bottles left.

Got into the store, medium sized store with wine and liquor up front and beer was all the way towards the back. Didn't see a single employee the entire time...searched up and down their bombers a couple times but didn't see a single bottle or tag for it. Guess this store is one of those that the rare stuff doesn't even make it to the floor.

Fnally I overheard a couple guys in the back on the computer...I ask for the bottle and he retrieved it for me from the back. Also saw an FU Sandy sitting on his desk but he said it was a personal bottle. Totally unprofessional. If a bottle is in sight, you should sell it. Employees should NEVER get precedence over customers.

Anyway, their mix a six area may have been the best I've ever seen. Tons of options at reasonable prices with a 5% off discount if you make a 6 pack. Bombers were on the better side in terms of selection but their six packs were almost non existant. Overall, I don't think I'd ever seek out this store...it's not terribly close to the main highways nor in a nice location.

Better options all over.

I've never been to a better place, with better people to get the best beer. They always have an exceptional selection in stock and if they don't have what your looking for it'll be back in stock on Friday. Dan and Jeff are the guys you want to talk to about beer. Dan does all the beer ordering and knows his beer very well. Jeff is a great home brewer who knows beer all too well, but be careful he will get you spending triple the money you wanted to. Love wine? Then Matt is the guy you want to speak to, he is the wine extraordinaire. George is another craft beer enthusiast and also a friend of mine who wont steer you wrong. All the guys there have turned into good friends of mine, who I've shared many long beer chats with. (probably too long)
Over all great shop, great service and great people. Wine World of East Brunswick gets an A++ from me.
Oh yea and a shit ton of great Craft Beer.

Excellent liquor store overall. The Craft beer selection is one of the best around. Everyone who works there really knows their beer and is very helpful when it comes to selecting new things. They even have some special beers in the back that they will give you if you ask. Will always hold something for you if you don't want them to run out before you get there. All in all great place friendly people great selection and great help.

This is a really solid establishment. The folks working the floor always ask if you have any questions or need help. I walked in the other day looking for something that was scarce and I was told to come back in a couple of days and sure enough it was set aside for me.

They have a very good selection of beers and they are expanding some other sections as well which is nice if you are interested in other spirits such as single malt scotch. I'm very impressed with this place and I would recommend it to anyone in the area or within a reasonable distance.

As Chugs13 said, I'm very surprised there are so few reviews on this store. I have a few places local to me that I may stop in every so often just what they have (if anything) and if you don't already know, it is incredibly awkward to have to walk out empty handed from a liquor store. You won't have that problem with this store.

They are constantly updating their selection and all employees (that I've spoken with) are very knowledgeable on their beer. They go one step further than just having a great selection. When you speak to the employees about beer, they have actually tried a great many of them and will give you their honest opinion. Many times you go into a store that may have a great selection but nobody that works there knows enough to advise your purchase.

As others have already said, it is also a very clean store. Ive been to stores with decent to good selections that are just strewn about on the shelves and cause you to spend WAY too long in the store than even a beer geek planned on. Wine World is clean and open and easy to navigate with friendly and knowledgeable employees! DEFINITELY somewhere to check in on at LEAST once a week or every other week!

I stop by once or twice a week after work, and its simply a great shop. Im surprised there are such few reviews, especially compared to 'Marketplace', as I believe this is a much better spot.

This is a large store that is nice and open, and very clean and organized. They have a ton of cooler doors along the back of the store, many of which are dedicated to craft 4, 6, and 12 packs, and a few doors dedicated to bombers and single serves. I love how the craft brands have the primary cooler door locations and the macro domestics and imports are tucked away in the back corner.

They have an extremely large warm self completely dedicated to craft. On one side they have a great selection of bombers (Stone, Rogue, Unibroue, Jolly Pumpkin, Southern Tier, Allagash, Firestone Walker, Great Divide, Mikeller, Ommegang, Hoppin' Frog), as well as 4, and 6 packs (DFH, Troegs, Victory, Founders, Riverhorse, Smuttynose, Weyerbacher, Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, 21st Amendment, Six Point, Yards). Everything is very organized and clearly priced.

On the opposite side of the craft warm self they have an extensive mix a 6 section that is always expanding, and has plenty of room to keep expanding, which it looks like the managers are trying to do in regards to the store as a whole. I can almost never leave without grabbing a few single bottles.

They also feature like an end cap of seasonal stacks of a rather vast variety. They even put together pre mixed seasonal variety 6 packs, which I love since they get so many different seasonals, and I just want to try them all.

The service here is second to none. There are like 5 or 6 guys who work here that are all awesome, they are all extremely friendly, personable, and willing to help. Everyone is very knowledgeable and more then happy to give suggestions and just talk beer for awhile.

If there is something they dont have or you have a question about the availability of something, Dan is very approachable and willing to answer questions and inquire about something for you. And llok out for Dan's Picks shelf talkers.

Again, great shop, great people. I always look forward to stopping in.
