    I don't know that store, but if there is any Neshaminy Creek Shape of Hops to Come left, you must have her get some of that. If not, then their County Line would be a very nice plan B. Easier to pack cans, too :wink:.

    Anything by Carton would be an excellent option.

    Oak Tree is a good store. She could get you the cans that Tongorad suggested. That place sells singles. I also recommend anything by Sixpoint, if we're sticking with cans. They should also have Stone Enjoy By. I saw on their website that they have Dogfish Head's Raison D'extre. Victory Hop Ranch and Dirtwolf. Lagunitas Brown Shugga. Really there's tons of things. Care to narrow down the styles?

    I would skip Oak Tree, it's a shell of what it once was. 90% of those reviews praising it are from 5 years ago. The recent ones paint a much different picture.

    I would head to Super Buy Rite in North Plainfield. Much nicer selection and growler fills with Kane and Carton on tap (No idea if that's a possibility for you.)

    Neshaminy Creek Shape of Hops to Come is long gone. Just go to Carton. If she is bringing a case well packed for growlers the hit Kane. Forgotten Boardwalk brewing is making some GREAT stuff too down in Cherry Hill

    I haven't been to Oak Tree in awhile. Why has it gone down hill?

    Last I went, a few months ago half the shelves in the aisle were empty and all stuff was spread pretty wide. They had a slight falling out with Hunterdon or something.

    If she lives close to a Total Wines, they list the entire inventory online, you can place an order for her choosing instore pickup. Almost every 6pack is also available as a single 12oz bottle

    Oak tree has gotten much better lately. I believe they recently transitioned beer managers and the new one has been doing a great job.
