3.94/5  rDev +4.2%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4

Vibe: a little too small and crowded - the good stuff is in the back, but does take up a good amount of floor space.

Service: nice guys; can't say I rely too much on their beer knowledge, but since this is a sister store to Beer City and the Huntington Superstar, they're probably pretty well-informed.

Selection: core backstock is probably a little larger than Beer City, but smaller than the Huntington branch, but they don't seem to get the same stuff as either of the aforementioned locations - worth checking out because they'll usually have a couple of beers you didn't expect and/or that the other places are out of.

Prices: reasonably priced: same as the other places around (at least for the good stuff)

From the outside I didn't think I would find anything great here. BUt I was wrong. The store is smaller then other stores in the area but loaded with quality beers. Then have a four line growler fill station which is a great plus also. Their selection is as great as any Superstar Beverage (which its is now - no longer called Twin Oaks Beverage) Avery, Blue point, capt lawerence (on tap, 750ml and 16oz)dogfish, ell river, flying dog, just about every letter of the alphabet was represented. Also I like that they lay the store out according to origin of the beer. Prices were fair, they also have random deals on good brews, I got Madd elf for $11.99 6pk and Kona 6pk for $6.99. This place has been turned around from the old "twin oaks" beverage and is deffintily worth checking out.

Located on Route 110 just south of the Walt Whitman Mall. Upon entering, the craft beer and imports are to the left while the macros are to the center and back. As far as craft beer goes, they carry SA (3 or 4 types), SNPA, SN Stout, SN Porter, Anchor, Blue Point (2 or 3 types), Saranac Pale Ale, Saranac Trail Mix, Magic Hat, etc. There is a very good selection of Russian, Eastern European and Asian/Indian beers that are not readily available elsewhere in the area.

As far as macros go, they carry the standard fare. The store also sells cigars and Lotto.
