Not too many drive-thru beer locations in NJ that's for sure; in fact, I think this is the only one I have ever seen to be honest. It's located on the edge of town which is convenient for most in Hoboken or Jersey City. Great prices on kegs and cases. Keg selection is fairly large with several craft and foreign options, but unfortunately the case selection isn't special. Got a Coors Light keg for $60 for a party we were having and I was going to buy my Guinness keg there but they didn't have the special taps (that are needed for foreign kegs) available, so we had to go to Jersey City Buy Rite.

Having lived in Florida for several years drive through liquor stores were not a new thin to me, but for the area ist was funny to see one. You never really get a great selection from these stores, but on same level I was a bit impressed. I had never really scene a drive through store sell anything close to craft but they had alot of more common offerings fro sam adams, sierra nevada and the like. Nothing really crazy but I have to give them credit for being decent and not over priced I still think these kinds of places are nolvelties, but they are fun.

Located on the corner of Newark Street and Observer Highway in Hoboken, this was the first drive-thru liquor store I have ever encountered...
You pull in through a garage and enter a warehouse stocked with sodas and beer...
Although the beer selection is phenomenal, they do offer slight discounts on bulk purchases... They sell kegs, half-kegs, and lesser bulk amounts at decent prices, plus 750 ML bottles as well...
Saw some nice stuff from Chimay, Franziskaner, your typical macros, some micros including Magic Hat... Very friendly, eager-to-please customer service that greet you as soon as you step out of your car...
If you're looking for bulk purchases, this is the go-to spot in town...

Located near the Hoboken train station, and on your way to the Newport Centre Mall, this is a gem of a place to purchase suds and pops. The cool thing is that you can drive thru and the workers will toss your selections into your trunk. The times I have visited the place, I was able to get out and look around for a bit. They have a wholesale collection of the usual brand names for beers (Budweiser, Heineken, Corona). I didn't find much in terms of lesser-known brews, though I recall seeing cases of Harpoon IPA for sale. They also have a collection of soda and other non-carbonated beverages. I used this place often when I went to college, considering back then, a case of Guinness was under 10 beans. Check this place...it's worth the drive-thru.

Great Place! You can actually drive through, unheard of in NJ. Very nice selection of Micro's, Seasonals, and Import/fest beers. The only place I know that has Magic Hat#9 available by the 1/2 keg; others available too. A Hudson County gem.
