I'm glad I found this place! Located off Rt. 18, it is tucked back next to an A&P. There was a great selection of bombers, and a ton of good 6 packs in the coolers. I picked up some Nugget Nectar and Sierra Nevada Torpedo, and wished I could have purchased 20 other beers. The selection of imports was expansive, but I tend to focus on American micros. Prices were very reasonable. They even had vintage beers.
I had previously driven to Oak Tree, but this place is much closer and almost as good. The owner saw me with some good beer in my basket and ask me if there was anything in particular I was interested in. He offered to special order any beer that I couldn't find on the shelf.
Will be my go to beer store from now on. Highly recommended.

Went here the other day cuz it's so highly rated and I was in central Jersey for a conference....wow the people who have written the sparkling reviews must limited experience with craft beers, the selection is mediocre at best...lots of Rouge, Dogfish Head, Stone, and all the other beers you can get elsewhere.
A few "vintage" bottles and by "vintage" I mean last year's left overs...don't get me wrong some interesting stuff but not much at all. I was there 3-4 years ago and it had a much bigger selection then.
At this point I've hit almost all the top rates shops and this one's not worth going out of your way for if you live any where Boonton Liquors, Byram Shop Rite, or Valley in Hackettstown...all three of those shops are far, far better.

Great beer store. Completely hidden next to the Stop n' Shop. Had an amazing selection of bombers. I have spent too much time just browsing up and down the bomber aisle because there's so much you're likely to miss something interesting. Also have a good amount of vintage bottles which are clearly labeled, big positive for me. Very good rival to Wine World across 18, but you have to pass one to go to the other.

It may be between this and Wine World across the road as to which may be the best beer
store in the state which is kind of incredible.Oak Tree has fallen on hard times.they are not half of what they were.
Marketplace may have better prices but wine world is the most competent bunch of guys selling beer in the state.Marketplace has a little more to offer and nobody for whatever reason beats their prices.(vitus-$2.50 for a 16.9 ou. bottle).Both stores are fantastic. I love the guys in Wine World though. If you ask them a question be prepared to discuss beer for

I've been going here for years and have usually had good help. Mike I believe is one of the guys names and he is always extremely helpful when it comes to not knowing exactly what you want. They also have a wine tasting spot you can get a card and try up to 4 wines a day. Overall good spot with good selection. They will even price match if somewhere else has something cheaper. Good single selection of craft beers.

This has been my go to beer spot for the past few years now. They have a ridiculous selection of singles and bombers. The staff is extremely knowledgable of their selections and can make some really great recommendations based on your lies and dislikes. Every time I'm in town I always make sure to stop by and grab some beers from Marketplace. Their selection never disappoints.
One of the best beer shops in New Jersey in regards to selection and price.. If you haven't had a chance to swing by definitely do yourself a favor and check this store out.

This place is only a few minutes from where I grew up. I had frequented the area a lot as a kid, and as I got more and more into craft beer I began to realize recently just how wide a selection Marketplace actually has. Currently, I live in Florida - so I do not get the opportunity to come here all the time (though when I did live in NJ, this was my #1 stop in the area to get my fill of great craft beers). Many new breweries have made their ways into New Jersey recently, and Marketplace is very much on top of that with offerings that are very hard to find elsewhere. Ballast Point, Lost Abbey, Port Brewing, Founders, Troegs, Firestone Walker are just a few examples of the wide variety available here.
Marketplace has 5-6 full-door coolers filled with many different offerings a seasoned or new beer lover would appreciate. I suggest that if you are in the area, please give this place a shot - I promise you will not walk away disappointed.
The staff is friendly and helpful - especially the manager of the store who I had the pleasure of having a beer-related chat with for about 20 minutes yesterday. The prices are very good too (I was appreciative of how low the prices for a lot of the beers were).
I will continue to shop at Marketplace whenever I come home to New Jersey, and plan to have my parents pick up some special releases from the store in the future.
Great store, nice staff, highly recommended.
