Not w huge selection but solid for Nova Scotia. A bunch of locals and some well curated imports. Service friendly prices just ok given the context.

Small shop that focuses mainly on wine. Beer is mostly in two coolers near the cash. Ambiance is nice and the staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The selection is quite small, with a half dozen or so imports and the rest being local micros and crafts. That being said, it is a good place to get limited run Propeller or Garrison products if they are sold out at the breweries and the only place downtown to Sea Level beer.

More appealing as a wine shop, but there is a single small cooler housing a few Nova Scotia micros, in particular they had several Sea Level brews that I found no where else in the city.

Pretty quaint, out of the way store, just happened to be right across the street from where I was Staying, so we wandered over.Basically everyone got this place spot on, I would say the only reason to go here is to get the sea level brewing. When I was there I believe there were 6 varieties of the sea level stuff, at least 4 for sure, I got the dussel altbeer. The only beer selection they had was the two sided cooler, that was just your average sized cooler, this was the only beer there was in the store, they had a mix of st.ambroise/sea level/ Garrison, propeller too. but nothing you couldnt find else where. But if your in the fax and want to try some sea level brewing, I believe this is the only spot to do that.

Small private store near the water in Halifax. Doesn’t have as extensive a beer selection as Premier, although everything is refrigerated. Decent array of local micros (namely Propeller and Garrison), a few less common (though by no means rare) Euro beers and a cider or two. The most exciting element was the presence of beers from Sea Level Brewing which I’d only seen available otherwise at the brewpub in Port Williams. They only has the flagship 4 when I was in but I believe they have had the seasonals in the past. Service was helpful, forthright and reasonably knowledgeable (although the focus is clearly wines). Worth a visit if only for the Sea Level beers.

Stopped in just to see what they had for beer. This place had a very small selection of local stuff and a couple other Canadian macros. The store it’s self and the location was very nice. I just wish they had a better beer selection.

The selection is completely awful. A store that caters mainly for wine, but even then the wine selection at this store isnt worth checking. Staff members seemed uninterested in helping out customers. They also seemed uneducated in matters related to wine and beer.

Atheist_Peace  (24) Halifax, Nova Scotia | April 28, 2010
A quaint little shop right on the waterfront decked out completely in hardwood. The beer selection is bleak with the noticable exception of Sea Level’s brews and the local seasonals. The staff member I spoke didn’t seem to know a thing about beer but refused to acknowledge the fact. Worth the stop if you’re on the water front and unwilling to walk the 5 blocks up to Premier.

A small beer selection, not a huge selection, however, this is the only place I saw the Sealevel bottles. Close to the waterfront. Very nice location though.
