Great store. The employees, in my opinion, are exactly what you want: they will leave you alone until you ask for help and then they will tell you everything you need to know. I often ask them for suggestions and they have never disappointed me. The place has a great feel and is well organized. They have a great "make your own" six pack option with some great choices, and the best singles/22s selection around.
I only wish they had a growler selection. And maybe a little bar on the side?

This BuyRite location is an easy detour of this section of 95 that sits about halfway between Philly and Newark.

It is located in a nondescript building with beat up old carpeting and fixtures. After entering, turn left to make your way towards the beer. Stacked on the floor are various bombers, some from small New Jersey breweries, others from the US and abroad. The fridge has a pretty good selection of 6 packs, with more bombers, and a fairly expansive collection of chilled single 12 oz bottles. Some brands I recall are Terrapin, New Holland, Flying Fish, Brooklyn, Epic, Victory, Unibroue, Mikkeller and others.

The prices are reasonable and the staff did not come by to lend any suggestions during my leisurely shopping. But, I did walk away with some beer that I don`t get in CT, so it was a worthwile stop.

Jersey's about as good a place for buying beer as any in the world. As part of the Philadelphia-area the market is flush with quality products from the West Coast, Europe and everywhere else. However, it's free of PA's ridiculous laws and taxes.

Super Saver is one of those places that exemplifies this fortune.

Most of the staff really isn't knowledgable or paid to care, but there are a few helpful folks. Most stay out of your way, which is nice. The distribution here is top notch. I've found some real rarities, even aged ones.

I really like this place for its convenience and selection. Check it out!

This is the second time I have visited this diamond in the rough. This place is in a pretty remote location. If you intentionally plan your trip around visiting, then it is not hard to get to. It is right in the middle of the state.

Over half of this store is dedicated to beer. The beer is really well organized. Every beer has it's proper section. Most of the beer is already chilled. Along one wall is individual bottles. If you get at least six, then it is 10% off. This is probably the biggest selection of 12 oz. individual bottles purchasable individually that I have ever seen. Their bomber selection is pretty limited, but overall there is a very large selection.

Be careful though, some bottles may be expired. That happens at this store.

Im re-reviewing Super Saver after a recent visit on St. Patricks Day. I went in looking to build two mixed sixes of all stouts and schwarzbiers. When i entered and began looking I was approached by an employee to ensure I found everything ok, which was the first time thats happened there. Ok so i knew what I was looking for but he offered some new info. They have revamped the place a bit. They now have a larger selection of all beers particularly including foreigns and higher quality beers. They have brought in more quality domestic stuff and added a long bomber bottle rack opposite the singles fridge line. The employee was very friendly and let me break down ANY 4 or 6 pack I pleased. I was happy to know ANYTHING was up for a mix 6. Apparently they will be holding tastings on Fridays and they have more beer on the way. I was impressed. I also made out with a couple Samichlaus bottles from 2000 at a VERY good price. I am now much more anxious to return and see whats up next.

Staff isnt very helpful or knowledgeable regarding any of the products they have at the store. Originally when I first found this place after it was taken over by Super Saver, it seemed like it was on the up and up but my recent visit was a dissapointment. Some/a lot of the inventory is quite dusty and old, which can be great for special finds, but not all the time, especially for your lower ABV/non-cellaring beers. Despite the above, it is still a good hidden gem on the Pennington Circle in NJ. Good spot to hit up on the way to the NJ Shore. Found some pretty exciting bottle like Weyerbacher Prophecy, Sam Adams Millenium, etc.
