I just came back from Wine Works today, and every time, it surprises me at the selection of the craft beer!
My section of most interest is of course the Italian craft. Bruce, the beer manager, is taking a great risk, as well as having faith that it is only a matter of time before the Italian craft will gain even more momentum. This section is indeed growing at a fast rate, and he has such a great relation with is distributors , and it shows!
Not only does he carry these, but also craft from all around the world!
This is a very friendly place that I enjoy going to. Their selection is always top notch, with freshness in mind.
I can not find thing bad to say about them thus far! A solid A+!

Wineworks has one of the best selections in the area of beer, wine, and spirits. HOWEVER, BUYER BEWARE! Watch closely on check out. On multiple, multiple, multiple visits, items scan for a higher price than listed on the shelf. I am sure they make a mint on subtle over charges. It may only be a few dollars here and there but it is a FORTUNE to in principle to the average consumer. Oh, and when you try to correct them, certain managers can anything but friendly!

Decent selection even for New Jersey, where I normally have found good selection. Reasonable prices, particularly on local brewers. I got some Old Schoolhouse. Better than average selection of Europeans, that is Norway and Italy, not only Mikkelle, and also the rarer Belgians. For example, the Tsmisje in cognac, Alvinne base wild beer. Reasonable selection of singles. Perhaps not the best selection in New Jersey, but worth a stop when in the area.Quick and friendly staff, but no beer geek fans walking around.

Another Jersey mega-liquor store to check out in the Philly burbs. To echo the other reviewers, this place is huge. Of course there is a boatload of wine, and even has a nifty automated dispensary for wine which I won't go into here.
On to the beer.. when you walk in head immediately to the aisles to the left and you'll be pretty impressed. Fantastic, well-organized selections of US craft and imported brews. I saw some beers on these shelves that I've never seen in any stores around the Philly area and beyond. Prices seemed very reasonable here, but I probably pay way too much at some of the Philly bottle shops. If you're a Jolly Pumpkin fan like me, you'll be happy to know that they had a nice long shelf with about 6 or 7 varieties, including my favorite, La Roja. Great selection of the smaller Euro breweries, Mikkeller, Nøgne Ø, Haandbryggeriet,
The staff was friendly, but I didn't notice anyone who was available to chat about the beer selections. This place would probably be an A+ if they had a dedicated beer snob to chat with. Maybe they need my services... hmmm

Visited this store a few times over the last year.
Wineworks is HUGE, you can see that from the outside in the shopping plaza, once inside it's a big liquor store with beer to the left and other things to the right that I have no interest in. I do know where the cheese section though and it's fairly expensive.
This place is big and it's clean, isles are nicely maintained and the beer is organized very well with American and Imports split between two isles. Imma be quick with this one, Wineworks has a ton of beer with a great import selection. Six packs, bomber format and even a single section.
A great mix of styles, from a variety of countries. There are even some imports that I don't see in Philly that make it to the shelf here. I was lucky enough to score a small bottle of Cantillon Kriek and I drank it that very night, so much for saving it. Prices are a tad bit on the upper end of what I usually pay in Jersey, but the place is bigger and the rent is higher, I assume.
Service is pretty good. I usually get asked if any help is needed by one of the employees. Some questions I ask some of the employees, including the beer guy, seem to go over their head, so there is that. Maybe I can secure some weekend work here, if the staff is that clueless. It's a minor flaw for a great clean big store with MAD beer.

This is the only place i buy my beer in the area. They usually have everything available in the area. Beer beer beer, an aisle of 12's and an aisle of bombers. They even have a decent amount of cooler space dedicated to bombers which is always a plus for me. This is THE place in the area for craft beer. The beer guy can be a total dick sometimes tho.
They also have an awesome cheese section.
You can also sign up for a store card that gives you discounts and lets you sample wine about 6 times a month.
So yeah, this place is amazing and perfect minus the dick beer guy ( who does know his stuff, just a total cocky dick )

For the discerning host, this place is where you've got to go. They have a huge offering of craft beers in large bottle formats, as well as 12 oz, so you can build 6 packs and the like. They also have a lot of craft beer chilled, so worth stopping by if you are en route and need cold beer.
Their beer manager Brian is extremely knowledgeable, and supplies hard to find selections from breweries like Mikkeller, FSW, The Bruery, and Cantillon, while having large quantities of offerings from large craftbrews like DFH, Victory, Troegs, and many others, both regional and extended.
If you are looking to please non-beer drinkers too, they have a HUGE selection of wines and spirits. I'm not exaggeration when I say that this place is like a liquor supermarket. They even have glassware and cheeses for sale, which is an added bonus for a one-stop-shop for all your party hosting needs.
Highly recommended. Also recommend getting on their mailing list, as Brian will send out email blasts about new incoming brews.

Stop into this store every Saturday on my way to work. Brian the beer manager is very knowledgeable and helpful with anything that i am looking for. There selection is def better than almost all local bottle shops with isles lined with singles to make your own sixer to bombers of just about anything available in this area. Prices are always reasonable. If your ever in the area and looking for sum good stuff stop on by and check it out. They also have a great wine and cheese selection from what i hear but doesnt interest me.
