Been there only once, in 2010, the selection seemed to be large and with a couple of new beers for me. For the rest, it’s just a quite big liquor store.

Nice big airy store in a very nice part of town. Thankfully lots of free parking in the area. Service was great, with a staff that has tried and can talk about most of the beers. Prices were good competed to the rest of BC. A great store, likely one of the best in town.

Quite a good store with a decent selection of beers, including the largest selection of De Molen (my favourite brewery) beers I’ve seen in Vancouver. They especially have a large selection of Belgians, and it is nicely laid out. They often seem to have beers before the other Vancouver beer stores and don’t sell out quite as quickly. The staff are very knowledgable and quick to point out when they have new beers in stock. They tweet updates regularly as well. Price-wise they are quite reasonable, definitely cheaper than a lot of the other private stores. Worth a visit if you are beer hunting in Vancouver. They give a discount to CAMRA members too.

Certainly has the best collection of beers on the North Shore, especially if you are looking for some West Coast American ones. A very good selection of 6 packs and 650s, though some can be a bit on the pricier side, which is to be expected at the private stores. Very knowledgeable staff!

Great place in West Van. Good, extensive selection of craft beers from around the world. Good selection of local, PNW, USA along with a great Belgian/European selection. All displayed either direct on shelf or in the fridges on the wall. Prices do seem cheaper than most other stores visited. And for those with deeper pockets, there is possibly the best Single Malt Whisky selection in the city!!

Large selection (for Vancouver) of craft beer, rivaling Brewery Creek, with excellent prices (just slightly higher than government liquor stores). Great variety of US and Belgians. Chris, the store manager, is a great guy and very knowledgeable about beer (and wine and liquor, which the store also has). Worth the trek over the Lion’s Gate Bridge to come here.

This is by far the best beer shop in the greater Vancouver area at the current time. The premises used to be the Ambleside provincial liquor store but, after the BCLC moved to newer, smaller digs right on Marine Drive, this store was sold off to private interests. While the interior itself is stark and over lit the offerings are worth the visit.
With a very impressive selection of wine and liquor you’d think beer might have been an after thought...but no. There are a wide selection of Belgian and European beers on offer as well as arguably the best selection of U.SA. micros in the city. Probably 60% of the inventory is shelved or floored with the rest refrigerated in six side by side display fridges. While standard beer offerings for joe sixpack are available it’s clear from the stock list that they care more about the aficionado. Prices are the best I’ve seen in the city with bottles and sixes selling for roughly 10-20% cheaper than Viti, Brewery Creek or Firefly.
The staff are very knowledgeable and eager, especially Chris who cares about the category more than just about anybody I’ve ever met in Canadian beer retail.
If you are passing through Vancouver I’d strongly suggest making the trip over the Lion’s gate bridge to check this place out.
