A small grocery store in downtown Chicoutimi. The selection is descent with new arrivals on a regular basis. The prices are good for regular stuff but it gets pretty salty when you looking for specialties. Most of the staff know what they’re talking about and they give good advice. Also there’s a good choices of delicatessen & cheese. Nice place if you ask me.

Best selection in the area. Beware of the freshness of the products available. Haven’t Had the chance to take a look at the food. Some beers cost more there then I’m used to pay for. Doesn’t worth the trip alone but if you’re there and in need of beer worth the stop.

Definitely the best store if you ever go through this somewhat remote region of Quebec. As mentioned by previous raters, the place is full of old bottles from brewers that I haven’t brewed in years. Price is slightly on the high side though considering it is the only notable beer store within 300km it is somehow understandable. Some empty bottles did surpise me such as old Unibroue Fin Du Monde champagne style bottle that are unfortunately not for sale.

A short walk from the hotel we stayed at when visiting Chicoutimi, the store is conveniently located. I expected a large selection, though it’s extraordinary for the region. Possibly more Quebec rarities than any other store in the province, but this has the major drawback that freshness cannot be expected. You’ll likely find up to 5 beers that you have not seen anywhere else in more than a year. That they still have beers like the MacAllen pils or La Festive is absurd despite the fact that those beers used to kick ass. I hope it’s more because they buy a lot, because otherwise, you’d have to sell very little. Not the kind of place where I’d expect particularly good advice.

Établissement visité le dimanche 12 octobre vers 10h. Ambiance: Marché de quartier sous la bannière Axep. Les bière sont regroupées autour d’un gros régrigérateur. Service: Dans les normes de ce genre de marché. Sélection: On y trouve presque tout ce qui est disponible au Québec ainsi que quelques bières exclusives à ce commerce. ATTENTION DE VÉRIFIER LA FRAÎCHEUR DES PRODUITS, LORS DE MON PASSAGE ON Y TROUVAIT QUELQUES BIÈRES QUI AVAIENT DÉPASSÉES LEURS POINTS DE FRAIICHEUR. Nourriture: Nous sommes dans un marché donc vous trouver de tout ou presque. (111e rating d’établissement)

This small grocery store most likely has the best selection of Québécois beer anywhere north of Quebec City. They pretty much have everything available in bottles in the province and tend to keep plenty of the stronger, older beers months after most Montreal-area stores are bereft of them. On the other hand, they tend to keep pretty much anything if it doesn’t sell, which is why you might see 1-year-old pilseners if you are not careful. If you are in the Saguenay/Lac-St-Jean region and in need of a few good Quebec bottles, you’ll definitely appreciate this store.
