i hadn't been to this place in maybe 5 years.. after a long day of work we end up at the home depot and it clicked.. it's 90 degrees out, let's go to the liquor store. oh i remember, it's at the very end of this parking lot. we go in and immediately i see a growler station and i'm blown away by how much stuff has changed. last time i was in there they owner helped me dig through the shit beer to find some stone cali belgique bottles he had been storing for himself in the fridge. that guy is pretty awesome. they fill up your growler, or if you don't have one it's $5 deposit (you get it back if you bring the growler back). they have set prices, but if you have a 32oz growler they will fill it for half the price. the owner actually told me to go on their facebook, and keep in touch.. he said when the kegs are about to kick, since he cant fill a 64, he can let me know and ill fill up a 32 for free. he's a fucking great dude, and i mean this is the first i have seen Goose Island on tap in the state of NJ. Fuck yeah.

Store is clean and selection is ok, but the beer is horribly unorganized. While browsing around I was happy to find a beer I was looking for from Maine Beer Co. in the "cooler" (which was somehow warmer than the rest of the store). Of course, that would not have discouraged me from buying it, but the fact that it was over 18 months old certainly did. Lucky Maine dates their bottles as they care about their product being served fresh, something this store clearly does not. Unfortunately, not everyone dates their products, and since this place does not care enough to manage their inventory, I will not be risking another purchase from here ever again.

Great selection of all types of beer, craft included (Dog Fish Head, Sierra Nevada, SlyFox, Lagunitas, Troegs, Stone, Oskar Blues, Founders, Six Point, Brooklyn, Full Sail, Magic hat, Climax, and many many more). Most of the great micros are here, if not, ask for Paresh (good guy) the owner. If it is available he will get it upon request, even lets me order kegs. After I ordered a few, he even got me a nice Hoegaarden tap handle that adds elegance to my kegerator. Prices are reasonable and consistent with the area, staff is friendly. Overall happy to have a good beer store in my area.

Has a large selection of craft brews, that gets rotated often. The store carries a lot of common Craft brewers (Dogfish, Founder, Lakefront, Troeggs, Fort Collins and Stone and some hard to find items. The store clerks are helpful and willing to order new beers. Must tell the owner to keep the product in stock if you like a brand otherwise it will be replaced with a new product. Also has a nice selection of European beers,like Zywiec, Okocim, Lech, Tyskie, Chimmay, Unibrou, Golden Pheasant, Livu, Svyturys as well as Domestic's.

The store is large, and uncluttered and the craft beers are kept to one side of the store next to the huge cooler. You can find almost all the beers in the cooler also.
