I was back in the area visiting a friend from college (Rowan University), and I wanted to make a visit to my favorite beer store from that fun time in my life. I use to go in and look at their singles selection and try some strange brews as I dabbled in beer drinking.
When I walked in I immediately dart to the back where the beer is. The whole front of the store is mainly wine, with some cases of beer on the wall ushering me to the beer section. Selection was good, but I've seen much better in north Jersey. It had the best selection of the area of the time, but my friend told me I need to visit Hops and Grapes (probably it's only worthy competitor in the area) which is also a great store. I found a couple of things that I had been looking for, so it does have some harder to find items. Prices aren't bad. I grabbed a few items, mainly for that night and I was done.
If you are in the area drop on by. You may be surprised by this college town liquor store. I will probably pop my head in here everytime I'm in the area, to see if they have anything new. It's an hour away from my home, or else I would visit more often.

Stopped by here on a tip by oglmcdgl. Monster is in one of many strip malls in NJ so it all looks the same. Easy enough to get to and out of the way from major traffic. A bright yellow neon sign out front. Inside, most of the store is covered in BMC, liquor and wine. Left hand side of the store a huge row dedicated to beer. Mostly domestic craft with some well known Belgians and some German beers as well. As said mostly American craft, well laid out and you may find a gem or two. I found a Weyerbacher (super sour 2010) version after swearing that I missed the boat. Clean store and easy to move around in. I would 'come again' as Apu says.

I used to frequent this place all the time when I lived in Jersey, even before I was a beer enthusiast, and I still go for a visit every once in a while.
Most people would be amazed upon first entering and seeing what is essentially a huge warehouse filled with alcohol. Places like this did help me discover hard-to-find beers, and their micro/craft section has been definitely improving over the years to accommodate the craze. Lots of good local stuff in 6 packs, mostly. Of course tons of macros, and aisles and aisles of wine and liquor, for those interested. This is pretty much the go-to place for a party or get-together whether you're serving good beer or not. Or it's just a good place to get a good beer when you can't find it anywhere else in the region.

This store has a decent selection, but a lot of the beer is really outdated. I would not recommend buying unless you see a date on the bottle, or are certain that the beer just came in. Some stuff is literally 2 years old. I mentioned this to the staff and nothing has been pulled from the shelves.
Other than that, a decent store. Beer can be bought by the case, as 4/6 packs or as singles. You can't reserve beer, in my experience, nor can you be certain that new releases will come in just because they carry a certain brewery.

Visited this spot on my way home from the jersey shore....
Rock solid collection of micros and imports. Lots of single bottles, bombers, and 750ml. A couple of the heavy hitters were missing such as Canitllion and Fantome but they did have an impressive selection of American micros such as Avery, Smuttynose, Founders, Flying Fish. They also had some Firestone Walker beers which are not imported into my home state. I was able to grab the last bottle of 14. As far as imports go they had Dupont, a few Mikkeller beers, as well as the usual suspects such as St. Bernabus, Orval, Westmalle, etc....
The best part of the store was the customer service i received from Sal the manager. He was able to search the computer for any beers i was interested in and even grabbed me a bottle out of his personal stash in his office.
One of the better bottle shops i have visited...

I've been able to stop by here a few times on my way to Atlantic County and other places in South Jersey.
The folks here are very helpful and nice, and I've met the manager twice and he's been very interested both times in what I thought of the beer selection, the arrangements and display, etc.
Generally they offer a wide range of beers, many of which are not found in PA so I usually opt for those when visiting Jersey. The selection of beers on offer is pretty good and I can always find something to buy that I'm interesting in drinking or sampling (e.g., my first Mikkeler single hop beers were purchased here). This always makes holidays or visits to friends in Jersy more interesting.
The prices are reasonable and in line with what I generaly expect to pay when traveling so the beer I drink in Jersey I always buy in Jersey.
My major complaints here are pretty much the same as those I have about most bottle shops I visit while traveling outside of PA. There are beers I have to pass up because they are not dated and so I can't tell how fresh they are. And I know there's some risk of buying out of code beer here since more than once I've found beer on the shelves that was past its freshness period or right at the very end of it. That said, generally the beer is fresh and reaonably priced.

My wife is a professor at Rowan University so we frequent this place quite often. This is basically a large warehouse liquor store that has a very good selection of craft beer. They carry a lot of renowned brands and offer a nice mix a six deal. They consistently stock a ton of Belgians(not to many sours though), German and other international beers as well as a huge variety of American craft. Plenty of Founders, Bells, Southern Tier, Left Hand, DFH, Victory, Sierra Nevada, Avery, Hoppin Frog, Stone, etc. Every once in a while they get something in from Captain Lawrence which is awesme and they offer six packs, singles, plenty of bombers and a few magnums. If you are in the area I highly recommend it along with Hops and Grapes, another quality craft beer destination in Glassboro.

I was in Chester,PA on Saturday and decided to drive the 30 minutes over to Monster Beverage. It was a great decision. There is an incredible selection of micro's and imports here. There wall of beer took me the better part of an hour to navigate. Many singles are available here, as well as all of the fall seasonals. Staff seemed friendly enough although I was not looking for any help. Prices are fair and the store is easy to navigate. Overall I had a very pleasant experience. I really wish that we had some better beer stores in Lancaster, PA. Note: Do check the freshness dates on the bottles here.

Um... Wow! There's a place in SE Mass, called Yankee Spirits, that I am familiar with and has a comparable selection. However, this one has mead, Duchesse De Bourgogne in 750ml for $9.99, Sam Adams in 22 oz (haven't seen these before?). I coulda done some serious damage, so I got out quick. Service was friendly, layout was bright and easy to navigate, and you can mix-a-six if you like. Next time I visit my in-laws, I'll be saving up for a trip here. If you live nearby, you are very lucky to have this place.

Best selection I have found in South Jersey, and I have been all over. The place looks pretty shabby, but what an outstanding selection of beer, including everything you might want regionally and an eclectic mix of harder to find small operations from New England, which you don't see much if down in the Mid Atlantic. It has an odd assortment of stuff I have never seen from the West (Skyscraper from suburban LA? Breweries from Utah?). It even has a few New Jersey operations I have never seen (big half-gallon jugs of beer from Climax? Never even heard of it). It has a huge wall of imports from all over the world, a really good lineup including an impressive selection of Mikeller. It has a good selection of single 12 oz bottles and lots and lots of 22 oz bottles, including some unusual such as the Flying Dog "open source" beer. Prices are not bad. I didn't talk beer in detail, but the staff seemed quite friendly.
This place beats anything I know of in South Jersey easily and rivals regional standouts like State Line in Maryland.
