This was my first good beer store way back when, when micros first really hit up this way in the early 90's. There was always something goin' on here. Flash forward a dozen years, they're still doing their thing. They've just moved to a new location about a 1/2 mile down the road from the old location...
They've got a good selection of micros, local (Keegan's, Brooklyn, Southampton, Heavyweight, Ramapo Valley), regional (Stoudts, Weyerbacher, Victory, Southern Tier, Smuttynose, Magic Hat, DogFishHead, Wagner Valley, Middle Ages, Allagash, Cooperstown, Lake Placid, Saranac, Long Trail, Harpoon, Wolavers), and beyond (North Coast, Rogue, Anderson Valley, Grants, Anchor, Flying Dog, Avery, Bear Republic, Stone).
They've got a good collection of English and Germans, and some solid Belgians (I cleaned them out of the 4 packs of Rodenbach Red long ago).
Nice bunch of bombers from Rogue, Stone, Bear Republic, Smuttynose, Anderson Valley, Middle Ages, Weyerbacher (Heresy, Insanity, Prophecy). Up front a "New Arrivals" section and a display with 3 litre bottles of Rogue, JW Lee's Harvest in Calvados and Whiskey, Sam Utopias (and '97 Triple Bocks).
And... Growler pours. 6 live taps in the corner (Weyerbacher Blanche, Gulden Draak, Widmer Hefe, Piraat, Heavyweight Stickenjab Alt, Anderson Valley IPA). Filled me a growler of the Stickenjab (and pretty much drank the whole thing myself at my brother's 4th of July party before I hit the out-of-town next door neighbor's trampoline). It's a good thing as there's only a couple of places in New York State that currently do growler pours. It's great exposure to beers that you generally wouldn't find in bottle. Good set up.
Service has always been good here. They want to know what's new out there, what they can get, and what you want. And they're now armed with a Randall, so you know I'm waiting for that 90 Minute IPA to get back in growler rotation...

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.
