This was my main LCBO when I lived in the area. One of the larger stores in the north end this LCBO location gets many/most of the seasonal releases and is often less quickly picked over than the more central downtown stores. There is a small tasting/sampling bar in store, but I think it is generally limited to wine and spirits rather than beer. Staff is generally pretty good and have been accommodating about getting stuff from the back in the past. A good spot if you are in the neighbourhood. Recommend checking inventory at LCBO.com or drinkvine before coming if you are travelling a distance.

This used to be a lot better location to pick up the latest and greatest. Not any more. Upscale mall, but weak in selection.

In past this one number one destination when it comes to LCBO. One of nicer designed beer LCBOs inside posh Mall. Unfortunately in past few years I noticed steady decline when it comes to beer selection. They push more of vintage vines etc. Still above average spot.

If you’re in Toronto, you should be visiting the Summerhill location over the Queen’s Quay location, for example, but if you’re up north on the Sheppard line and not visiting the other two, then popping into the Bayview location can’t hurt. They typically have a wide variety of singles available and get in a lot of the new seasonal releases. I’ve been to free samplings here too for beer and food on special occasions, which they monitor with limited tickets. (Yay not buying Bud Light Lime!) Nice big store, big Vintages section, and part of a great mall. Service is variable: some days they come up and ask if you need help, and other days they mess up an event liquor license and try to blame the customer. Overall, generally a good store for some finds.
