Close to Lambertville, Trenton area, this place is a BA paradise. The Huge selection is the highlight of a visit here. Its all kept cold in nice coolers all along the sides of the store. Tons of wine as well, if youre into that sort of stuff. It would be nice if they had some stock kept warm, they have pleanty of space. The staff was very friendly and offering to help. Tons of imports, domestics (locals and more far of fleight stuff) A bunch of Avery bombers, no Stone. This place is way worth visiting, with many brews I hadnt seen before and all the usual stuff.

Haven't visited this establishment in about a year and I wanted some singles for sampling, so I made the trip 35 minute trip. There is a large wine section when you walk in the store, but there is a large beer section farther left in the building. Numerous refridgerators on 5 walls holding six packs, bombers, and 12 ounce singles.

The single selections were nice, as they were broken down by international and US beers. Great Belgian section, German, Czech and surrounding countries, and Russian sections. The remainder of internationals include Spain, India, Brazil, Portugal, etc. but these are mostly one or two brands at best.

The US section is dominated by east coast beers, with a lesser selection of the smaller micros of the rest of the country (still large selection of Sierra Nevada, Anchor, etc).

There is plenty of walking room, and the floor does have numerous styles of variety 12 packs, and with the holidays nearing, the winter varieties are there now. This store creates their own variety packs but were almost priced the same as 6 singles.

Service was nice but no overly helpful. Prices are all over the board, some single were relatively cheap ($1.75) while others were high ($7.99 for 12 oz Dogfish WW Stout).

Great place to pick up numerous singles you haven't tried, or don't want a six pack of. There was several BA.com logos on the refridgerators in front of some of the top 50 beers sixpack with a hand written "Ranked # X on BA.com". I was surprised to see this but it was a nice touch. You'll spend a little more here, but selection will make you happy.

Go in the front door and make a left turn at the wine department, walk about 50 feet, and you're in the beer department. One of the best selections of import beers in the area, and nearly everything is refridgerated.

Appears that all of their beer selections are available as singles, priced in the $2.00 to $4.00 price range. Many beer prices were a little high, but there are more than a few deals. Picked up more than 24 single bottles (getting ready for a beer tasting, and needed to do some homework), and all the ones I've tasted so far are reasonably fresh.

Great store for beer, wine, and liquor. It has the best selection in the area...however prices are high. If it's just normal stuff you're looking for, buy it elsewhere. But their beer selection is amazing!! If you can't find it elsewhere in the area, it's probably here.

It's off of I-95 (exit 4, to Rt. 31 North. About a mile ahead it's on the far side of the circle).

Maybe I'm missing something, but I have a better selection of beer in my closet than this place does. Stella Artois, a couple of Sam's, Sierra and a whole ass-load of macros. Not ONE Belgian! (Stella doesn't count IMO). Could be there is a back room that I missed? Otherwise, don't come anywhere near this place.

I am an idiot. I reviewed Shoprite liquors which is next door to Circle Liquors, and let me tell you, what a huge difference. Awesome selection of singles pretty much sums it up. They must have a dozen different beers from Russia alone. Not that Russia is the beer making capital of the world, but just the fact that they carry something like that is very impressive. They didn't have anything from America that I hadn't seen before, but they did have plenty of brews from countries that I've never even heard of! Looks like a huge selection of wine also, if you're into that sort of thing. Highly recommended.
Update: after many trips here I've decided that the service is arrogant and cranky and the prices are high, but if you're looking for something you just can't find, this place might have it.
