Tobyís (pub and liquor store) on Commercial Dr. has a small selection of craft beers (20-30), but among them some that I havenít seen much around:

Fort Garry Munich Eisbock
Phillips/Garrison Mash-Up Baltic Porter
Whistler Chocolate Winter Dunkel
...

They also have quite a few Old Cellar Dweller (without the 1-bottle limit of Vitiís).
The attendant says that they should also have a box of Woolly Bugger; better to call the boss first...

Look for Lighthouseís Belgian Black in Vancouver next week too ~$8 for 650ml bomber. Iím pretty excited to try this...



Its like the BC beer scene took a hit of steroids on New Years Eve. Crazy the number of releases weíre seeing... and add the 4 Hoyne Brewing beers too (Bock, PA, Pils and IPA)

I canít wait to take a trip to Victoria and partake of the local scene there.

Sounds like things are setting a really good example for the rest of Canada.

Lol! Never had it but assumed it would not be great. Iíll end up getting a bottle anyway me thinks unless someone bring a bottle to the tasting! :
