I stopped by this store the other night. The building is god awful looking-big and yellow. The inside is different, very clean, well lit, and organized. As you walk in they have shopping carts full of discount brews, past best buy dates I suspect.
The selection is as good as you can expect in NJ. There was plenty of Founders(including KBS), Rogue, DFH, Weyerbacher. I did not look for rarer stuff, but the domestic crafts were well represented. The prices seemed fair, saw some stuff lower at other locations, some higher. The staff was not real helpful. They were polite, but seemed more interested in the NCAA tournaments than me. If you are in the area this is a good store to stop by.
edit: I stopped by again and it was much better than I remembered. They had alot of items I had not seen in NJ before. There prices were very good, definitely worth the drive.

Maro Brothers has beer tastings every Saturday at 4 pm. Their beer sommelier (cicerone) spends all week researching and sampling new brews. Then, he selects six to present to customers along with handouts explaining the intricacies of each one. He lineup usually has broad representation from the various styles of brews but there is almost always an IPA and a stout. The store has special sale prices on the beers featured at that week's tasting.

My experience with Canals outside of this one has been poor. This is the best Canals available. Their selection is amazing, they always order in as many seasonal beers as they can, and they always try to maintain a vast variety of domestic and imported craft beers.
The domestic aisle features the Delaware Valley locals (Troegs, Victory, Weyerbacher, Yards, Dogfish Head, Flying Fish, River Horse, etc.). Along with this selection comes a nation-wide variety of craft beers (Terrapin, Brooklyn, Moylans, Schafly, Rogue, Baron's, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales, Allagash, Great Divide, and the list goes on. I come here for this sort of selection.
The import aisle offers the likes of Mikkeller, Weihenstephaner, Meantime, Samuel Smith, Wychwood, Lindemans, Duvel, Chimay, etc. They are not lacking!
If I had one complaint about them it would be the fact that they took away their mix-a-six section of the store and replaced it with "close-out wines." For this reason, I usually venture to other local stores around me to find singles of beers that I don't necessarily feel like buying a six-pack for.
This is definitely a must-visit liquor store in the Hainesport/Mount Holly/Pemberton, NJ area.

This place is the best Canal's I've been too. It is far from Philly but worth the drive because of the prices, selection and service. The beer selection in recent years has gone downhill(due to management not the beer buyers) but they still have a great variety of domestic and imported craft beer. Plenty of Stone, Mikkeller, Cantillon, Struise, BrewDog, Bernardus, Schlafly, Fantome, Weinhestephaner, Hitachino, Ayinger, Unibroue, Bruery, Ballast Point. I can keep going. They also have all of the local PA and NJ beers that you are looking for as well as a killer Italian and Belgian beer selection. The prices are ridiculously low for the area and the main beer guy(his name escapes me at the moment) is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and responsible for most of the awesome beers there. This use to be the best beer store in NJ but they cut out a lot of great beers because the higher end stuff doesn't sell as much.
