Cable Beverages may not look like much on the outside, but that's why they say you shouldn't judge a book on its cover. Beneath its meager exterior is an even leaner floorspace, but nearly every inch of that is packed with all different kinds of beers, with a wide and varied selection. And that's what counts!
The shelves, while tightly packed, are well-stocked with beers from all over the world and are conveniently separated by nationality. There is also a row of freezers with a varied assortment of chilled craft brews as well as the typical BMC dross that all beer stores seem to be required to have. The selection is excellent for the area the store is in, carrying far more unique names than you can find in a typical Rockland supermarket. Of course they didn't have everything I was looking for, but seeing as I want to try almost everything, I'm not going to hold that against them.
The prices are quite fair and I definitely don't mind them at all. About $20-$30 can get you a decent selection of beers to take home and try. The staff there are friendly and personable and always ready to help, making the shopping experience a pleasing one.
All in all, Cable Beverages is a winner. Yes, it's tiny. Yes, it's cramped. But it's got one of the better beer selections in the entire county, and that more than makes up for its shortcomings.

This "cave" is one of the finest bottle shops I've ever seen. They have so much stuff you can't find anywhere else around northern nj. It's always an adventure scouring the tight aisles but I always leave with a bunch of great shit. Highly recommended

This place has a great selection of craft beers with many that are not distributed in NJ or no longer available due to being sold out, i.e. BCBS. Also, Cable has a nice rotating variety of growler fill beers in 4 sizes of vessels. As others have said, this place is not about wooing you with its visual appeal but rather with its great selection and fair pricing. Staff was knowledge, receptive to our questions, and appreciative of our business. I will definitely be going back to this great little gem.

What can I say about this place that hasn't been said before? Best selection in Rockland county, tough to navigate with tightly packed aisles. It feels like walking into a cave, they are not about the presentation, just about the beer. Fantastic selection of beer, six tap lines for growler fills. Great pricing too, the staff knows their beer and is always willing to talk about it. Be sure to take your time and look around there are a lot of hidden treasures. Just an amazing place to buy beer

I started coming to Cable Beverages over from North Jersey about 6 months ago after reffing some soccer games down the street and of all things having Aprihop before Jersey got theirs. Pulling up, I needed to check and make sure I was at the right place, completely non-discreet from the road.
Walking in I was greeted and instantly noticed cases upon cases everywhere, warehouse shelving holding mostly bombers and the occasional 4/6 pack in the middle, refrigerated 8 (estimated) door cooler in the back. At first organization really looks like a mishmash, but it’s cider/mead, foreign, Belgians, US for the remaining 3.
They really have an amazing selection, and get much more "rares" then where I normally shop in NJ, (at least 8 cases of Double Trouble, more BCBS than I could count).
Service is pretty good, if you are looking for specific styles/what’s new they instantly know and the more they see your face, the quicker the answers will come (instantly got told the newest Saisons were on a spring visit, walking in the door).
Anytime I'm in the area I stop by, North Jersey does not have growler fills at stores, another plus for Cable, as they usually have 7 very good quality brews on at a time.
