This is located next to the main distribution centre which means frequently they will have stuff on the shelves first, however in my experience it is unpredictable. Similar beer selection to the King Edward location but not as much fun in terms of other stuff - actual beer selection is similar.

Dropped into this place today. Decent sized store in one of those old 60’s or 70’s style places attached to a central distribution center. Beer has a larger section than other stores in the city which I like. Selection is pretty good, although considering this is essentially the ’Queens Quay’ store of Ottawa (being attached to the city’s distribution center) I would expect a little more. The staff are your standard friendly-yet-unfriendly LCBO archetypes. This place is somewhat easily accessible by bus, although it’s a long trip down to South Keys so a car is much preferable. It’s also one of these stores that’s not actually located at the intersection the name implies. I can’t see myself going here very often, even for special stuff. The numbers in my rating came out more generous than I intended.

One of, if not the largest LCBO in Ottawa. Located on Bank Street between South Keys and Billings Bridge. From the LCBO’s that I have visited, it has the largest selection of beers. Since it is not located within the city center, and it is located adjacent to a Beer store. There seems to be a constant great supply of beer! This is my go-to place for beer!

Pretty big selection, on par with Rideau/King Edward. The problem with the LCBO is they are heavy on Lagers/Ales and very pitiful selection of anything else.

My usual outlet - As mentioned previous, due to its warehouse extension, it’s stuck in a ’rougher’ part of Ottawa, Bank St south of Walkley, within walking distance of the ledbury projects. Once you’re inside everything changes it’s very large with a huge selection of pretty much everything. As for brews, a good mix of cases, singles and those kept cold. Staff don’t or can’t seem to keep up with keep the shelves in an orderly fashion, but the selection is hard to beat, esp. for Europeans.

A big LCBO store outside the Ottawa center, but not too far. Ontario has a pretty bleak beer scene, but this place has enough imported classics to fill part of your fridge. Schlenkerla Marzen, Aventinus, Fuller’s London Porter, Okocim Porter, etc. were found that day. Clean and well-kept, but somewhat disorganized in the aisles.

Fairly large store, largest beer section I’ve seen as far as LCBOs go. Had all seasonal beers well stocked. Found a few things that were not available in the Windsor area. Very busy store, parking was a nightmare.

Good LCBO to visit since the regional warehouse is attached to the store. This means that selection is usually pretty good and because less people frequent this store, you usually don’t have to rush out there to ensure you get the hot new release. Parking is also larger then the Rideau store which is very convenient.

A very interesting location and design - this LCBO combines their Ottawa regional depot with a store. The 1960 architecture is truly outstanding and welcoming. The best part about the Depot is that they often get the beer on their shelves first and sometimes (just sometimes) keep the regional over-stock of seasonals. I’ve often found what I could no longer find at the Rideau location here. Since it is the depot - I suspect they don’t overly emphasize the service at this location because its hard to find someone on the floor?
