4/5 rDev -4.1%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | $$
Atmosphere: This place is first and foremost a wine shop, and that is shown in the atmosphere. Very inviting, huge selection of wine up front and a wine tasting room in the back. Very open and inviting. Next is a pretty good spirits selection, then off to the side is the beer selection
Quality: Very nice quality place, everything sold is high quality
Service: Friendly helpful and knowledgeable staff
Selection: Not the largest selection of beer, but they fit some fantastic choices in the space they have
Value: Maybe a little more expensive than average, but some htf can pop up here, so it isn't a place to pass up
Overall: A great gem of the area, they even will age some stuff before putting it on shelves (only aging appropriate stuff). I can always find something new and different here, never boring

Not a lot of people know about this place. Beautiful store, clearly wine-centric, but a very good and constantly expanding selection of craft beer, kept entirely separate from the BMC crap. The staff is way more knowledgable than what you get at other stores in the area. They apparently do a vintage program here too, and a beer of the week. Plus they have tastings on Tuesday nights from 4-7. A few old six packs, but it seems like they really do care about dates here. All in all, a great place.

This is one of the best places to go to in the Jersey Shore to be able to find a good beer and a great place to talk to a knowledgable staff. The staff honestly makes the place. They are like beer scientists. I consider myself to be a beer geek, and half the time, have no clue what the heck they are talking about.
It is hard to rate their selection. On one hand, they will have something that will totally surprise you, and something exciting that you are looking for. But on the other hand, they are pretty limited, and I would love to see a wider selection out of them. There is always at least 1 gem, but not enough gems to give it a higher rating
Definitely a place worth going to. But, in this area, it does not find a niche for me. To find a decent selection for cheep, the spirits on hooper is best- and if I am looking to go big, I go to Jonathan Ron's
