There are some really great beer stores in NJ, and I used to keep a list. Problem is I could drive near any of them on a highway and not realize which town I'm in; I'm not great on Jersey geographics. So I'm trying to figure our which are accessible when driving thru the state.
Two highly accessible beer stores I know about:
Fort Lee: Linwood Wine 102 Linwood Plaza....super convenient to GW Bridge, and
Hoboken: Sparrow Wine and Liquor 126 Washington St.....super convenient to Holland Tunnel
So......are there any really great beer stores within a couple miles of the Turnpike, or 80, or 17? Not "good" beer stores, I mean great ones?
And: are any of these (from my old list) still open, still good, and/or near Turnpike, 80, or 17?
