Any law that limits consumer freedom is stupid.

on hours of sale, the licensee must check with their respective municipality.
Well, that's odd. There is a liquor store by my parent's house in Roxbury that is open till midnight every night. It is not a bar either, just a straight up liquor store

I didn't realize there was a time restriction on beer as well as liquor. The OP better buy it in the morning then, before he goes to work.

Well, don't spill the beans on it.

They're probably just not following the law, and the community tends to like it that way!

They can stay open but can only sell beer or wine. Most choose to close at 10pm

There isn't, it may just be the store's policy.
At bars package good beer can be sold up to closing time and closing time can be anywhere up to 3AM depending on what town you are in

I was wondering the same thing.

There is a liquor store in the town my parents live in. Went in there late one night (11pm-ish?) and they were open and selling. I noticed two tiny tables in the far wall and one had a patron seated and drinking. So now I wonder about the boundaries of a "bar" and if a bar is (1) merely the ones we are familiar with/ traditional bar, or (2) any type of establishment that can serve liquor, or (3) one that allows liquor to be purchased and consumed on the premises (once opened), or (4) something else?

Bars can stay open till 2am in NJ. And I guess as long as they only sell beer and not hard liquor it is OK.

In North Brunswick, there is the Krauszers on the corner of Livingston Ave and Cranbury Cross Rd that sells beer all night long, but nothing else. Anyone that went to Rutgers knows this. I have gone there for beer runs way past midnight very often and have gotten in and out no problems. And they always have cops in the parking lot there during this time too, probably to make sure nothing gets out of hand.

This little place that I entered was selling hard liquor too. Maybe it's something with the municipalities since they differ town-to-town.

Otherwise, maybe I am ratting on someone and I certainly don't want to be a rat!
