During the recent rush on the quest for Founders CBS, I found out through Hunterdon Distributors that Shop Rite Liquors in Westfield was one of the “chosen” places getting a shipment. As most of you know by now, if you didn’t get a bottle of CBS the day they were delivered or didn’t have one reserved, it’s not likely you will get one. But that’s neither here nor there. What this did for me is let me know that this store must have a good selection. I decided to check it out regardless of the CBS sell outs and I was not disappointed.
Beer Department Manager Pete Colucci and the rest of the staff quickly proved to me why they have a good selection. They knew what they had in stock. Large selections of craft both cold and shelved, Imports and Domestics. They have a full aisle stocked with everything from the more popular craft breweries to some of the most sought after by some of us beer geeks. They also have a nice cheese area to get your beer and cheese pairing on. Pete tells me that they have Climax 6 pack’s on sale everyday for $8.99. That’s a great way to support a local brewery who was hit hard by Irene.
You can find Shop Rite Wine & Spirits of Westfield at 333 South Ave E in Westfield.
