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.

I was wowed and awed by this place. The wife wanted to go to Total Wine nearby, but I saw the BA listing for this joint and decided to check it out. WineWorks is a massive supermarket of booze. Mostly wine, but spirits too and of course beer.

The selection is wide and varied. They have pretty much every major brand in the US, and a lot of imports as well. Clown Shoes, Avery, Finch's, Lancaster, Free Will, New Holland, Lost Abbey, Hebrew are among the names that caught my attention... good prices as well, $13.99 for a four-pack of Ten Fidy, and $15.99 for Lost Abbey Deliverance.

This is not the place to get rare beers or recommendations from a beer nerd, but the "regular" stuff, it is all here. Their customer-appreciation card has some good deals too.

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!

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+!

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.

I go to WineWorks whenever I stop by south Jersey. Its a beautiful store and they have a fantastic collection of beers, wines and cheeses. I am really impressed by the craft beer selection and the prices as well. The manager there Brian is really quite helpful and good guy with alot of beer knowledge. He definitely works hard to get some of the more limited stuff that hits, such as Cantillon, Firestone, Bruery. I used to shop at a couple of different places when I visited this area but now I just go right to WineWorks. I grab a couple of bottles of wine and maybe a brick of bluecheese while I'm there as well. Good stuff

Stopped by here the other day during a Jersey beer run and I was very pleasantly surprised. This is a huge liquor store that specializes in wine but they also have a cheese counter(two of them actually with great selection) and a large craft beer selection in the rear of the store. The folks stocking the shelves weren't very knowledgeable but they were very helpful and friendly.

The main draw of this place is the very impressive selection. Anything that you can think of th is available in NJ is here. A ton of great beers from all kinds of breweries like Southern Tier, Terrapin, Stone, Fantome, Nogne O, Brew Dog, J.W. Lees, Hitachino, Founders, Schlafly, Haand, etc. They have a wide variety of beers from different parts of the world including several German, Italian, Belgian, Asian and Scandinavian beers. In addition to this, nearly everything in six/four packs is also available in singles which is a HUGE bonus.

In addition to the great service and selection, the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend seeking this place out but save some beer for us Philly folk!

This place has a vast and well-chosen selection. If it's available in Jersey, you'll probably find it here. The people I dealt with were friendly. I will frequent this place.

As a craft beer addict from California, where BevMos are everywhere (but still only used as an alternative to more specialized stores), I had a tough time finding a one stop shop in south NJ. What I look for in a beer store is a place that has all my favorites, and a wide variety of things I've been meaning to try or have never heard of. WineWorks definitely tops the list for me in both of these areas.

Examples:

I found Bruery Tradewinds Tripel--which I've been seeking out in the S.NJ/Philly area for months

Ipswitch and Cisco beers from MA which I've been meaning to try but have not yet found.

Their selection of Nøgne Ø and Mikkeller was astounding

They sport a fantastic variety of sours including Boon, Hanssens, Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Monk's, Douchesse, Rodenbach--not to mention their amazingly impressive stock of other Belgians.

Finally, I was impressed to find some Scottish, English, and German beers I've never heard of.

OH and they have Dieu du Ciel

Quality: Very nice presentation in both the beer and Wine areas. Everything was immaculate and neatly organized, very clean and well structured. The quality of the beer is also very good, you wont find much run of the mill stuff here, a majority is harder to find examples from breweries that are limited in stock at most places. Very upscale feel and well kept overall.

Service: very good. Talked to the manager and main beer guy Brian who comes with past experience and is knowledgeable about the beer he keeps. Very helpful.

Selection: It looks like they are just getting started here. 1 row, four shelves housed about 200-225 different beers. You wont find much run of the mill stuff here, alot were rare examples or styles not stocked by most places or in very limited quantities. Great selection of Mikkeller, Brewdog, Haandbryggeriet with about 7-8 examples of each. Fantome, De Proef (Imp. Saison) as well several Italian imports i was unaware of. Wintercoat had 2 offerings but were $20 a bottle. Great selection of Danish, Norwegian as well English beers which had 2-3 examples of breweries i never heard of or seen around locally as well some Itailian beers going for $10-20 for loosies and bombers. The beer area had a few holes of which im sure they will fill in the near future but overall the quality of the beers were very good if you are looking for beers not normally stocked at your local canals. which by the way, their selection blows away the Canals around the corner on 73 both in wine and beer selection. Expect to find and try the unusual with alot of different varieties not found at canals or total wine and more nearby in cherry hill.

$$ - fair. though alot of the stuff they carry is upper tier in price but is fairly priced by comparison. Expect 8-10$ bottle on average, especially with brewdog, de proef, haandbryggeriet, and fantome. a bottle of Harviestoun Ola Dubh 40 sold me on $18.99. 95% of the selction is >$5 but like i said theres no magic hat here.

Great place, though the shopping center is a bit shady looking (though coming back, with an eye to the day when the traffic circle construction out front is finished). A nice collection of singles and 22 oz bottles, good looking wine and liquor selection. The beer shelves have nothing you couldn't find at well stocked area places like Monster Beverage or the Canals in Hainesport, but it is still quite an impressive selection of locals, regionals, and imports. The staff seemed crisp and friendly, though I didn't have occasion to talk beer specifically with them. The store is large and clean and is clearly the best beer store in the immediate area (much as it pains me to say, since the Marlton Canals is just a few hundred yards down the highway - and it just doesn't stack up to Wine Works).

Sort of went in here as an afterthought today after picking some stuff up, and boy was I happy I did. When I first walked in I thought I would be disappointed. Everything was wine. Everywhere I looked there were bottles of wine. That was until I walked to the far left of the store where I saw one of the most beautiful bottle walls I have ever seen. Immaculately kept and completely stocked. Unfortunately I had just been in another bottle store and bought some there, otherwise I would have walked out with more than just a mixed six (which they discount 5% off individual bottle prices). They had just about everything I could wish for and more. The place seemed a bit deserted, so if you have a lot of questions be prepared to look for someone, but having no questions I had a ball. Definitely a wine store first, but they do a great job with everything else as well (liquor, beer, cheese, etc.). Great selection, great prices, I was happy and will return next time I am in Jersey.

This location has a fairly large selection of craft beers, which rival that of both Total Wine in Cherry Hill and Canal's in Hainesport. I can honestly say that this is the first location in South Jersey that sells anything from the High & Mighty Brewery. You can also create your own six pack from a wide array of International and American craft beers, which are competitively priced. As far as service is concerned, no employee was present in the beer section so I really cannot comment their beer knowledge. If you are in the area and want to try someplace new, give this location a shot.

A Circuit City dies (actually before its birth) and WineWorks is born in its footprint.
And I'll confess, since it's so close to my home, I fully expected to be disappointed. And yet...

It's located at the end of a shopping center near the now defunct Marlton Circle. Parking is beyond plentiful.

The decor is a tad chic, with contemporary flair and a wealth of earth tones. About what I'd expect of a store that is in-your-face dedicated to wine and all its accouterments.
But along the two left aisles, in front of the walk-in humidor, lie a stretch of beer I was not at all anticipating. In fact, I've never seen such a tidily fronted wall of beer. Diligent employees, or low sales? Hell, who cares! All I know is, there's no dust, and it's bright, and there's plenty of room.

Service? Well, if you want wine, cheese, or cigars, service is readily available. Beer, however, is second place here, and it's apparent by the lack of staff in that area. Now, for me, I loved it. To walk among the beer and not be asked multiple times "Can I help you find anything?" is damned near retail bliss for me, because I like to browse, at my leisure, and if I have a question, I'll track someone down of whom to ask it. But I'll be true to the principles of rating here, and so the abandoned feel of the beer zone might frustrate those who actually want service. What rescues things slightly, though, are the very cheerful, wonderfully willing cashiers. Do they know about beer, or wine even? I have no idea, and I don't care, because they make me smile during checkout.

Selection is the true strength here. I was surprised, amazed, astounded, etc., considering where I was, in South Jersey, and what I was expecting. Not one local is missing. None. And if it's from the US and available in this area, it is on the shelf. Seasonals, limited releases, you name it, it's there (if in season of course.) I'm not naming them all, I'm just going to refer back to my last sentence: If it's in NJ, it's here. And Belgians English Germans Belgians Norwegians Irish Belgians Scottish Canadians Belgians...let me collect myself...I can say that while I am no grizzled vet, neither am I a neophyte, and the number of quality imports here that I have never had impressed me.
So singles, sixers, bombers, imports, domestics: No, it's not The Foodery or Hawthorne's, but here's the real kicker- I can get a lot here for a whole lot less than those places.

That's the next point. Price is a strength. I'd seen DFH Squall for anywhere from $9.99 to $12.99 per bottle, but here? Just $7.99 thank you very much. And that's just one of many examples. So value would be a damned good reason to come here, if the selection wasn't, which it is, so come on down.

Yes, please, come on down and patronize this place, because I do not want to be the only one going here and have them pare down the beer selection or, gasp, close, what with the place so close to me, in case I hadn't mentioned that. Bring your own knowledge and you will be happy you stopped by.
