Hands down the best bottle shop in town. Always a huge cooler selection and always something new coming in. The recent addition of build-your-own-6er is great. And of course, what else can be said about the growler station. One of the first in the country, I hear, that's not at a brewery. Great, rotating selection for good price. Go during the day and chat with Kyle for all the beer info you can handle. Can't say enough about this place.

I stopped in at this place on a recent trip to Lethbridge, as I heard they might have some oddball Mikkeller offerings. What I discovered was far more than I could have hoped for in such a small town. Beer selection is largely relegated to a series of refrigerators along the far wall, along with some shelving immediately adjacent. Interior is clean and easily navigable. The initial perception is that the store focuses on wine and spirits, but one glance at the excellent beer selection quickly corrects that notion. Alberta is the only province without state-run liquor stores, and it shows in the selection. An excellent mix of Canadian microbreweries (Half Pints, Charlevoix, Tree, Propeller, Dieu du Ciel), along with a fantastic mix of European imports (Cantillon, Mikkeller, Struise, Haand, etc.). There are also a few US offerings, but nothing you wouldn’t find 90 minutes south in Montana. Prices are quite good, especially considering the general tax climate of Canada. $23 for Lou Pepe Gueuze? Seriously? I think I also got a discount for buying 6+ bottles. I also appreciated that there were unusual, seasonal, or limited offerings from the aforementioned breweries. $ellout $tout, St. Lamvinus, Dominus Vobiscum Brut and Lupulus, George, Cognac Black, Pannepot Grand Reserva, and more! I’m sure it’s a pain in the ass to get good beer to such a remote and small town, but whoever is in charge of beer buying has done a superb job working with what is available. The staff was super friendly and I was even invited to share some beers with the local Lethbridge BA group (they had Berserker and Czar Jack on deck). The staff also knew which bars were likely to have interesting stuff on-tap, and were happy to discuss the challenges of running craft beer-centric businesses in Alberta. Highly recommended - particularly if you’re in Calgary and local stores have run dry, or if you’re in northern Montana and need a Cantillon fix.

I found this place to be dark...very dark. Dark shelving, dark floors, dark ceiling. Service was adequate but nothing exceptional; no one really asked if they could help us but were nice enough at the check-out. Didn’t get a lot of chance to price check while in the area but prices were about what I expected.

it is a good ambiance I suppose, not that I think that should really factor into ratings such as these. Service is exception, staff are friendly and attentive. Selection is excellent considering that this is Lethbridge we are talking about, they aren’t going to always have everything possibly available and some of the really rare stuff, but overall beer selection here is excellent, with many top-shelf brews available. Value is pretty good. Overall an excellent store, and really the best place in Lethbridge and probably Southern Alberta as a whole to find good beer. There is also a good selection of liquors and spirits.
