Part of the Total Wine family of stores. A lot of fun to visit when passing through (Exit 4 on the Turnpike). These superstores are my "go to" places for both discount cases and craft brew/import sixers. Not the selection that some others might have, but high turnover means fresh beer. A wine store by name (and by majority of space), it still carries most of what you might want--unless you're looking for that obscure German altbier or Belgian. Even so, you'd be surprised. I'll even call ahead to be sure they have something I need. They'll go find it on the shelf while on hold. Excellent service. If you (like me) think there is something fun about shopping for beer with a shopping cart, this is your new favorite place.

Total Wine is a large, clean, well-run store with a good-sized staff that seems friendly and helpful.
The wine selection is very impressive! I buy all of the wine for my wine tasting group here (http://www.firstwednesdayswinetasting.com). They have a massive selection with some hard to find stuff and many exclusive items. The wine staff is great, and the prices are terrific.
The choice of wiskey is great, and they carry quite a few interesting liquors as well.
The beer selection is very good as well. It's over 300 beers, but many of those are common/average beers. I gave them a 4.5 for selection, but that's because they just have so many good wines and liquors as well. In their singles aisle they carry most of the Sam Smith line-up, many Belgians, Rogue, Allagash, etc. - a cart-load of micros and dozens of assorted imports! And for a cold six-pack, their selection of micros can't be beat locally.
I would highly recommend them for beer and wine!!!

This location has one of the best selections of beer in South Jersey. Their prices are among the cheapest in the area and have promotional merchandise available during sales. This location offers beer lovers the opportunity to create their own 6-pack with beers ranging from domestics and imports to craft beers and microbrews. These beers can be found on a dedicated aisle that is geared towards craft beers and other hard to find beers. If you are looking for 12-packs or cases of craft beers, Total Wine has a small section against their back wall chock full of these beers that other liquor stores in the area do not stock. Please do not let the name fool you, Total Wine & More will satisfy any beer lover out there!

This is has been my go-to store for various craft and imported brews. When I get to a point where I have tried everything that I want to, somehow this place ends up having something I haven't tried. Another Wine and Spirits (not affiliated with Total Wine) store has recently opened in my area, and they do have some brews that I have never seen at Total Wine, but they still cannot hold a candle to the sheer selection and ability to build your own six pack that Total Wine offers. I might occasionally go to Canal's or the new Wine and Spirits to check for any brews that Total Wine might not carry, but overall, this is the place to go for nearly any craft, local or imported brew.

I have been coming to this store for years, even when they were "Fine Wines" in the 80's. Originally, I came for the prices and then for the selection. They have a decent selection of single and six pack beer, along with cases. With an entire aisle dedicated to beer, ciders and malternatives. Although this store sells mostly wine and liquors, I think that most beer enthusiasts would be satisfied with the store, and they seem to get a better selection every time I visit. From their latest catalog (which comes out quarterly) I counted about 244 different beers that they sell. (includes macros of course). Call them and they will probably send you one.
Clearly, the best "Total Wines" I've been to is in Claymont, Delaware. Right off I-95 and across the DE state line, it's worth the 25 minute drive from Philly.

Great selection of beer. Helpful staff. They had a little booklet of beers which was a good read. A bit out of the way for me but when I want something unusual I'll go here first. They have some cold beer but most of their stock seems to be out on the floor at room temperature.
Also they have glassware and other beer accessories, as well as a selection of wine. All their stuff is on their web site.
Please note that this place is way in the back corner of the shopping center so if you don't see it at first, keep pressing along.

When I moved to the area a few months ago this was the obvious place to try. The beer selection has been good, though not exceptional. I especially like their large selection of six packs in addition to their individual bottles--sometimes I just want to grab a six of Founders or Lagunitas and get out, which this place definitely accommodates.
I've been in several times looking for specific craft and belgians only to walk out empty handed. However, on my last visit the beer shelves were completely full and many of the missing beers suddenly appeared (e.g. Rochefort 10). So, I'm optimistic but only time will tell if the place turns out to be consistent.
The ambient temperature in there is a little high, which makes me a bit nervous for some of the IPAs.

I was very impressed by this store. Before I get to the heart of my review, let me just say that I didn't need any help so I feel bad saying service was a 3.5. But without much interaction before the checkout line, that is appropriate for my visit. But honestly, no complaints.
The selection for both wine and beer was really good. Will you get every microbrew you may want. Probably not. But given the hordes of microbrews out there, I was quite impressed. I got some new French wines, a Belgian Lambic for Thanksgiving, and an asortment of microbrews.
Probably the best thing about this store is the individual beer aisle. I've been intending for a while now to try Dogfish's Midas Touch. Due to how expensive it is, I'm so glad I can buy just one 12 oz. bottle of it to try it out. In other words, you can make your own six pack. I'm going to use this to try new beers and to make a beer selection pack for Christmas gifts for friends. I'm definitely going to go here from now on if I'm looking to try out new, unfamiliar beers.
I didn't see Heavyweight's beers here, which would be a major oversight since it is a Jersey brewery. I'll have to look for it again.

This is my regular stop for mix-a-six. Sure the place is most known for its incredible wine selection, but the beer aisle isn't bad itself.
QUALITY: Head in the door and immediately turn right toward the back of the store. Then turn left at the third or fourth aisle and you'll be surrounded by a great beer selection. Singles line the left hand side while 6 packs are along the right. The singles shelves are arranged with a row of seasonals first, then large bottle American beers on the next 2 top rows with the smaller bottles on the shelves underneath in alphabetical order by brewery. Then an entire shelf block of Belgians, then a block of German and others, then another block of others. Not a bad layout, but sometimes the beers move around a little bit. Prices are pretty clearly marked, though the bit of bottle moving causes some confusion. Six pack holders are provided for making your selections.
SERVICE: I think most of the staff is trained in wine. The only assistance I've ever heard a staffer give another customer was when a gentleman was very interested in buying a bottle of Grolsch so the employee suggested that "if you like that, try this one!" 'This one' was Abita Purple Haze. Not exactly similar beers. On one better occasion though, I did have a guy run around the store for me collecting up all the 4-packs of Festina Peche since they didn't have an assembled case. So I suppose the staff is helpful but not particularly knowledgable about beer.
SELECTION: Like I said above - if you're looking to get a mixed six, this is your stop. A majority of the selection is 12 oz singles and most of those can be had for $1.50-$2.00. This makes for a $10 6-pack pretty easily. Featured breweries include Victory, Yards, Dogfish Head, Flying Fish, Sam Adams, Smuttynose, Brooklyn, Tröegs, and tons of the smaller Mid-Atlantic and New England breweries. The imports selection includes Unibroue, Samuel Smith's, all Trappists (no Westy), and all the standard German hefes, doppelbocks, and weizenbocks. The six pack side is also quite extensive and includes many of the same beers available in singles. All in all, if you're looking for big bottles or rareties, this is not the best spot, but if you want a single bottle to try something new from a small local brewery, you won't beat Total Wine.
Lately I've been going here with increased frequency because I know I can walk out of here with a lot of exciting new beers without breaking the bank. Overall this is a highly recommended stop if in the area.

Probably the biggest build-your-own-six-pack that I've been to in south jersey. That would make it the second biggest selection after the Foodery in Philly.
Employees are run of the mill, decent folk, nothing in particular worth mentioning.
They have a decent keg selection. Mostly macros, a few imports (Moosehead for one) but you can get SN, and a variety or two of the nearby Flying Fish.
Overall, if you're in Cherry Hill, the only place I consider significantly better is the Marlton Canals on 73. That said, Total Wine's boast is, again, the BYO6P.
