Big store, the beer selection could be a bit better... but the prices are good.

I donít know if this is the biggest Signature shop, yes itís big, but itís also a bit out of the centre, and beerwise BCL is still boring, and as in most American places beer is available either in bombers or 6-packs.

Typical signature bc liquor store. Good selection, but usual union laziness and lack of interest.

Always went here to get my beers in Vancouver. After they renovated the place some years ago as a "signature" store, the fancy whiskey section and wine area ballooned but the beer corner remained the same. Itís still one of the BC liquor storeís best places to find lots of microbrews, and on occasion a few Belgian trappists (went one day to find the shelf stocked with Orval..... bought a few. Went there a few days later, they were all gone!). If you live nearby it should be a mainstay to see what the beer procurer has come up with, and there is always something interesting on the shelves.

Best BCL that I know. The selection for the real beer is quite good, and the prices are as low as they go for this province. Good array of Belgians in particular.

Best government-run liquor store Iíve ever been in. Too many macro beers and not enough local craft beers. Oftern theyíll have an offering not listed on the BCLDB website.

Itís a bit cavernous and much of the floor space is dedicated to every wine you can get at the BCLS although there is a nice little grotto of fancy scotch if youíre into that. Servers can be slow and really treat beer as a commodity product. Selection-wise, itís hard to fault them. If a beer is available in BC, itís likely on their shelves unless it is only available at a specialty store or it has sold out. The good of that is at least they most likely have good turn-over of whatever you are buying so it should be relatively fresh.

I was surprised by the limited selection as I had envisioned a beer utopia. The large Belgian selection on their website is reduced to 3 shelves of a 4í wall. No Abbaye des Rocs? (sob!) The staff were kind but work like ants in an erratic manner. They arenít terribly beer knowledgeable but are more than keen to form a group of three and discuss: when they last had it, whether theyíd ever seen it, how to spell it and confirm that they can order it to see what happens? Belgians available: Binchoise and Caricole. Local beers available: Whistler, Nelson, Granville Island, R&B, Cannery in bottles and Bowen Island in cans.

Probably the best place for beer in B.C. Recently renovated although skeptically. $600 bottles of wine improperly stored in warm wannabe caves (must be government run, hell yes!) Good selection of beer though, and a staff that knows shit but willing to order weird stuff if your willing to pay for an entire case.

Lots of local micros but often sold-out of the more obscure stuff. Still, if you only plan to visit one shop while in the city, this is the place. Service is totally hit or miss.
