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?

I can't say enough about this place. The selection is outstanding, with a broad variety of belgian, german, etc. and enough single bottles to fill two full cold cases. There is a multi-sided display case in the middle of the beer section with zillions of big bottle rarities. The staff is always very engaging and there are some real geeks that work there that can tell you a tremendous amount about the products that they carry. This is undoubtedly among the top 3 or 4 beer stores in Jersey.

One little beef though...they always had the Ale Street News on display. I'd keep up with reading everytime I shopped there. What happened?

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.

I've been using Super Savers Wine in Pennington for a while now, used to be called Circle Liquors I believe. It's located right on a circle in Pennington NJ. My first couple visits to SSW wasn't that impressive...but pretty average. Then I realized, on a specific visit, that I wasn't taking the time to really look around. The line-up of refridgerators contians a pretty good craft beer selection, from most of the Trappist Belgian beers, to big name IPAs, stouts, and barleywines! Then, I started to realize that SSW does have a non-fridged selection, and there is where I proceeded to find some gems...aged beers, including some Cantillons and Fantomes. I was fortunate enough to have some long conversations with the staff, and the beer manager is VERY well knowledgable in the world of beer, which is nice to know. Pricing is also VERY reasonable...I would even have to say inexpensive when you compare some prices to other local stores. A very cool place for beer, liquor, and wine...and is now on my beer route!

Beer lovers should hang an immediate left upon entering and head right on back past the liqueurs. That is where the beers are. The wall on your left is the single bottle cooler. Go to the end of it and pick up a 6-pack carrier. Fill it and get 10% off each bottle. Warning, a lot of those carriers are 4-pack holders. You need to get 6 to get the discount. The other coolers hold six packs and more. Not everything in the single bottle cooler has a representative in 6-pack country and vice versa, so explore both. Definitely explore the displays in the middle of everything. Bombers from DFH, Rogue, Allagash, a variety of Belgian Breweries and more are displayed. I found a DFH Pangaea, which I had lost hope of finding until the next release.

There is always staff around asking if you need help and the ones there when I was there were pretty beer-knowledgeable.

The best part of this place is the single bottle cooler. Yes, they're all cold, but beer skunking due to cooling down and warming back up and cooling again is a complete myth...get over it. There are many beers I want to try, but don't want I don't want to spring for a full 6 or a bomber, so this is perfect for experimenting.

The bad: check dates on beers that don't have a major shelf life. This place is pretty out-of-the-way for most people and does not get as much traffic as Booton Liquor Outlet, Gary's Wines or Oak Tree in South Plainfield, NJ, but it's worth the trip.

This is one of the best beer stores I have been in. They have over 700 beers available to purchace with a pretty good wine selection. The Belgium, English, and American sections of single brews is huge. The rotation is great. I asked the owner who works there, if i could get a couple different beers that i couldnt find there and he said, "I bring in ever beer i can possibly get from my distributor." Now that says a lot for a liqour store. They have a lot of good stuff. Hard to find stuff too. I am going to be going here more and more. It is a little bit of a drive but worth it for me. A BA paradise.

Oh my God. A huge selection of imported and micros. You know I don't think I saw a macro swill beer there. Maybe I was just over come by the selection of imported beers. A great selection of beers from B. United International and the Shelton Brothers. Rick, who orders the beers, was great he ordered me beer and saved me beer. The cool thing was that I was a first time shopper. He even saved me his last bottle of Westvleteren. Even though it is about 1 1/2 hours away I will definitely be visiting this store again and again.
