Total Wine is a huge, cavernous warehouse with one of the largest selections of wine that I ever saw. The wine people are very knowledgeable about there aisles, the taste of the wines, and how they matchup with food. The beer aisle people are a little more lackluster in their knowledge.
There are pluses to the store. There was a large selection of Belgian and German beers, including several Trappist varieties and some nice Paulaner choices. There is a good selection of single bottles to make up your own sixer. The micro section is large but tends to be east coast rather than more broad geographically. That said, you're almost certain to find some beer you want to drink.
There is a nice walk-in beer fridge that would be great, except that it's almost all macros, except for a couple Sierra Nevadas. The one area that is neglected are the seasonal beers. I would have hoped for a few bocks or dopplebocks or even a Maibock at this time of year, and there were none.
Total Wine is a decent place but not the nirvana I was hoping for. Their prices are very good, though.

As a beer lover living in PA I have had to make many trips to NJ to beer stores. Total Wine has the advantage that you can search online although it is no guarantee you will find it on the shelf. The online inventory has improved greatly in the past year however. In my experience, the Cherry Hill store has a much better selection of imports and craft beers than the store in Claymont DE so it has become my preferred Total Wine to frequent. Since I am retired I generally shop during the week to avoid the weekend crowd. While the store is usually empty, the problem is that the staff tend to be rude and are much more concerned with re-stocking the shelves than assisting customers. They truly seem annoyed that someone is in their path and avoid all eye contact as they block you from searching the aisles. Presumably the employees during the week are told their primary function is to restock the shelves so I should not take it personally, but frankly I prefer to shop at other Cherry Hill beer stores for this reason.
