Looking for good beer/liquor store

Hello OC lovers,

Hoping to find a decent liquor store that has a good selection of craft beers. We are staying near 94th street but will have a car. Any suggestions?

Liquid Assets...and you're right there!

It's a restaurant but they do sell beer and they have a great selection!

If you're willing go a little farther, about 85th Street...THE WINE RACK. We find them to have the best prices. Going towards the boardwalk, they're on the right...a little set back, with a gas station in the front. Clearly labeled in red, THE WINE RACK. Beer, wine and liquor.

I'm not a beer drinker, so don't know much about craft beers...why not give them a call? (410) 723-0912

When you're on the boardwalk, Davey Jones Locker has six or eight craft beers on tap, stuff like Stone and DFH, usually more IPAs, Doubles and Pale Ales, not Belgians. They also have about twenty different quality bottles, stuff like Racer 5 and Midas Touch. Best of all, you're right on the boardwalk and the place has huge windows - you look out one side and you see the beach and ocean, look out the other side and you see boardwalk games and peeps on the boardwalk.

The take out beer and liquor prices at Liquid Assets are outrageous. Go to Bayside Liquors in Fenwick for the best prices of beer wine and liquor. Just go down rt 54 a few miles. Same shopping center as Smitty McGee's.

Agree w/Dude2360. While Liquid Assets has good selection, their prices are outrageous. You'll find most places in OC that sell alcohol are pretty high prices compared to "normal". Part of it is the taxes and part is the fact it's a resort town.

Dude2360 is also correct re: Bayside Liquors. There's also a beer-wine store just across Delaware Maryland line on Coastal Highway called Brewski Brothers.

Another option is Lighthouse Liquors in Delaware on Coastal Highway too.

The dude is exactly correct. De has much better deals on booze. I love Liquid Assets and always go one night of our trip. The taxes on liqueur in MD make it worthwhile to travel the short distance to DE. Unless you only need one bottle of something and are way south, which you are not.

If you go to the Tanger outlets at all during your trip there are larger liquor stores near the outlet. They have great wine selections as well. Their wine prices are lower than MD, but some are higher and some are lower than PA. BUT they give case price discounts on wine. AND free case of bottled water with qualifying $ amount purchases.
