Definitely a good selection of beers (I got my Stone Enjoy By here) and great customer service. Some of the beers seemed a little pricey, but the liquor prices looked good, however I felt their Scotch selection was lacking, but I imagine they could get anything you need if you asked.

I live about a half mile from this place, but it took me a year to discover it, tucked away as it was behind the stores that line Rt. 17. I've lived in this area my whole life and never seen a better selection of beer. When my wife and I stopped by one afternoon we were soon chatting with a couple of beer enthusiasts. I asked one knowledgeable sounding guy if he worked there and if he could help me. He said he did work there, but was there on his day off with a couple of friends helping them choose some brews. But that didn't stop him from cheerfully answering some questions and showing me some of his preferred brews for several minutes before he introduced me to the beer dept. manager. Then, I spent twenty minutes or so in that gentleman's company asking questions and learning a lot and enjoying it immensely.

When we finally left the store (well supplied with a few new brews to try) I felt that I had met a couple of guys who respect beer.

If you are ever on Rt. 17 south in Hasbrouck Hts, it is after the IHOP behind Kiddee World. Hard to find, but worth the trip.

Place is absolutely loaded with a vast selection of beer from the regulars to a ton of micros to top not euros. Problem I had with them today is the beer on there shelves is not moving and a lot of stuff is very dated. I went in to buy founders pale Le and centennial for a beer trading buddy and thank God I checked the born on date. They were both from July! How can you justify keeping beer that old on your shelves? Another thing I walked around for a good 10 minutes not one person asked me if they could help me or was I looking for something etc. This place could be a beer geek paradise but its obvious why beer is sitting on their shelves too long. No customer service old beer= ill stick with Rutherford Wine Shop

This place is HUGE!!! I've been looking for a new beer destination closer to home but wasn't that impressed at first. I continued to go there for wine and liquor and noticed that the beer selection was growing and improving. Turns out that they hired a true beer geek to run the department and gave him carte blanche to turn the place into a premier beer destination. It's already better than Stew L's and aggressively moving toward Rutherford and Totowa status. An added bonus is that almost all of their warm beers are available cold in their 20 door beer cooler. It also has an extremely large and comfortable tasting area for wine and beer events. Definitely recommend checking it out.

Brand new Beer and Wine store on Route 17 South in Hasbrouck Heights. Open a couple weeks now. Off ther highway a bit right behind Kiddie World Furniture. A big sign out from on the highway though. A good selection of beer. Carry Stone, Otter Creek, Allagash, Sierra Nevada, Flying Dog, Long Trail, Weyerbacher, Shipyard, and various others. Also have a good selection of imports from various countries: Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium. Prices are reasonable and not expensive. Good selection of wine as well which keeps my wife busy while I check out the beer. Recommend
