An awesome selection of brews. Founders,Troegs,Flying Fish,Brooklyn,etc. Cases of Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams stacked on the floors. It had the feel of a discount store but without the flood of BMC. They were there too along with Heine & Corona, but they didn't dominate the store. The staff is friendly and are willing to find or ordering something for you. I walked in one side of the store and spent an hour just looking at beer bottles. They also have plenty of refridgerated beers. They have mix-a-six, plenty of bombers and canned micros. If you are in the area you must stop in and check it out. They are also in the process of expanding and getting more shelf space.
They got growler fills now!

My first trip to Buy-Rite of Cranbury was AWESOME! I've never seen so much craft beer devoted to one store. They have hundreds of beers to choose from and if they don't have it they will order it for you.
I've founds some pretty good classic Belgian Ale's, Dubbels and Tripels at this location. I also spoke with the manager and he is willing to order any beer of your choosing. They have very helpful staff and even a draft craft beer bar where you can purchase growlers (32oz and 64oz).
This place has one of the best selections I've ever come across.
P.S. Since last year they have increased their import crafts substantially.

Oasis of craft beer in the middle of nowhere!!! Probably the best selection of craft beer I have ever seen on this planet. But what I didn't like was that Ive found out that many beers were expired or dying. After half an hour of looking around and checking the dates on random bottles, I've got a feeling that I'm on the huge graveyard of old beers. That was a cemetery of dead ales and Lager beers. So if you are trying to try something new you better check the expiration date.
I also think the prices for singles is not reasonable. My list was:
Dogfish Head Theobroma 750ml
Dogfish Head Santo Palo Marron 12 oz. x1
Left Hand volume 3 Pepper Porter 12oz. x2
Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard 12oz. x1
Stone Self Righteous Ale x1 bomber.
Six items cost me $47. Either they charge 5-6 dollars per single or the girl at the register made a mistake.
I would still HIGHLY recommend this store to any craft beer drinker living/working in the area. Just make sure you check the expiration date if available or ask associate when this bottle was stored on shelved. I will definately come back for DFH rare brews. Follow the store on Facebook if you beer hunt.

I stopped in here after a friend recommended.
Great store! Once again, one of those places that's not much to look at (the sign is small and you could drive right by it w/o realizing it was a liquor store) but they have an awesome selection of craft brews. One of the best I've seen in central NJ.
The building is like a ranch style house with two main rooms connected by an entrance foyer. The entire left room is beer.
Friendly, helpful staff and an excellent selection. Mostly domestic with a small but solid shelf of imports. Stone, Founders, DFH, Bruery and just about everything in between. Was psyched to find a bunch of the recent collaboration brews that Stone has been doing, like their chocolate cherry stout.
They also allow you to make your own 6 pack, which is always a plus in a store that offers this much of a selection. Will definitely be going back, asap!

Odd place! A huge supermarket of booze seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Overall it looks a bit worn-out and old, but wow, is it exciting to browse the aisles here!
So much beer here it is overwhelming. My wife was doing business a mile north of this joint and I was only happy to come to NJ and visit Buy-Rite.
Inside, the store is a little disorganized, with macro and micro beer all over and no apparent order.
One thing I like about this place is that they have a large section of singles, and good ones at that! I got Oskar Ten Fidy, Otter Creek 20th Anniv., Weyerbacher Heresy and Insanity, Samichlaus... pricy, though- $4.99 for Ten Fidy.
Among the six-pack brands I saw were Yards, Abita, Stoudts, Dogfish, Bar Harbor, Avery, Weyerbacher, Bear Republic...
The bomber selection is staggering too- vintage Christmas Ales, Voodoo, Mission out of San Diego, Fegley's, Epic from Utah, Schafly, New Holland, Terrapin... even one bottle of Rasputin XII!
Great selection of Euro imports, including Pannepot Reserva '08, Pannepot '10 and '11, Bon-Chien Grand Cru, De Dolle Oerbier '09... Czech, British, Mikkeller and else.
Service was not exactly stellar. Only at the end of my shopping trip did I stumble upon an employee who said hi and asked if we needed any help. Prices were fair overall but confusing- they weren't clearly marked (particularly in the singles) so I went to the register not knowing how much would I spend.
This is a great shop, and I can't get over how surprising it was to find this "out there".

Excellent selection and great prices. I love that half of the entire store is devoted to craft beer and hard to find imports. The room is packed full of so many different beers that it took me almost 30 mins to try and decide what to pick out. Great selection of sours and hard to find Belgians. I saw Black Albert, Pannepot, Cantillion, Scaldis Prestige, Hansens Lambics, tons of American craft from Saint Somewhere, Green Flash, it definetly seems like the guy ordering the beer hands picks a lot of the selection. Also if you are trying to have a theme tasting you can find many rare import lagers from German, Czech, and even some great South American craft beers. I also love the Growler station where you can find even more rare stuff to try and sometimes things that don't even make it into a bottle. I will definetly be making regular trips when my budget allows.

Great selection, friendly and knowledgeable staff, innovative.
The manager, Matt, is passionate and eager to offer recommendations to those new to craft beer as well as those who brew their own. He brought the store from a disorganized jumble of old, dusty beer to a well-organized, easily categorized, and up-to-date selection of brews from all across the country and world.
The beer festival event that was held last month was an excellent way to engage the community, promote their store, and benefit charity. It also allowed patrons to try a variety of different beers outside of their comfort zone.
Prices are reasonable - cases range between $2 and $5 above wholesale, kegs range between $8 and $15 above wholesale. Liquor and wine selection is excellent as well.
Also - Matt will get his hands on whatever you want to order - just stop by and ask!

Amazing liquor store.
As other reviewers noted, half the store is devoted to wines and liquors while the other half is exclusively devoted to beers.
No other store in the area has the same craft beer selection. Every time I go in there I am overwhelmed by the selection, and it usually takes me a half an hour just to decide on what I want.
Not only do they offer six packs, they also are known for their Make-a-Six deal. Every single beer they sell in 6 packs is also available as a single bottle. So if you are itching to try a certain beer, but are reluctant to commit to a full six-pack, this is for you! I find this especially useful in trying new brews from Dogfish Head. While a lot of their brews are very good, I am reluctant to commit to a 11$ four-pack.
Recently they put in a kegerator near the cashier so customers can try microbrews on tap for FREE. And if you like the beers on tap, you can bring home a growler full for a reasonable rate.
Overall this is a great shop with exceptional service and unparalleled selection.

Atmosphere: Beer section is its own room, very large and there are shelves upon shelves of beer. Kept clean.
Quality: Great quality. Always see that the stock is well rotated.
Service: The staff is knowledgable about beer, they know what is in stock and what is coming in. They are talkative and nice. Very helpful and will always ask if you need any assistance.
Selection: As said above, shelves upone shelves of beer. Some nice rarities there as well as the latest hyped beers. Also have a nice growler fill station.
Great place, go there if you are around, you really wont be disappointed.
