As the other reviews state, the selection here is very impressive.
The problem is that the proprietor is not a stand up businessman. I usually get my co2 tanks filled at a fire extinguisher place in Northport (Ken-Mar) but seeing that Shoreline now has co2 I thought I would pay a little extra and pick it up closer to home. I go to get it filled and find out it is a tank exchange, not a fill. I somewhat reluctantly hand over my tank and receive another in its place. A month later the tank is empty. It normally takes me over a year before I need a refill. I bring it in to see what gives, thinking that maybe they accidentally gave me an almost empty tank. Stew thinks for a moment and tells me to bring it to Ken-Mar and tell them the story, stating that they won't know that they didn't fill it for me.
What kind of businessman pawns their problem off on another company? Keep in mind that this is the same guy who "accidentally" oversold a beer fest a few years ago by something like 3 times that amount of tickets than the venue could hold.
In the end I went to Ken-mar and paid the normal price but told them what Stew said to do. Turns out that the tank I got in the swap needs a washer where mine had one built into it and that is why it ran out so quickly.
Not being a fan of shady people I will not be back there unless I need something I can't get elsewhere.

Stu from Shoreline Beverage in Huntington station on Long Island is one of the best beer and soda centers. SL has a great craft beer section with almost supermarket long isles of all our favorite craft beer. For the more commercially inclined, Stu has a complete selection to satisfy any palate.
Also, he was the store to carry and showcase Germany's newest and finest beer, BLACK ART BEER GOLD & DARK. He held a hugely successfully out-door tasting that sold out his stock. Stu went out of his way to personal pick up this fine product from Brooklyn before distribution to the Island has commenced.
A big high five to Stu and the folks at Shoreline Beverage for being true to the cause of Fine Brew...

He consistently gets Belgian beers nobody on Long Island has. There are maybe 900 of them, so obviously most aren't that great, but he consistently gets winners. I waited over 3 years hoping to try Gouden Carolus Tripel and last time I was there, he had it and it was one of the best I've ever had. I can't say that I know much about non-Belgian beers as they really hold no appeal for me. He's a fair guy too, took back something I bought that was dark and let me exchange it, not everyone will.
