Nice, clean store in the bottom of a hotel. Friendly staff, well organized, good selection. Walk in cooler was packed with mostly craft beer. Close to the Canada Line, which is convenient.

Spent quite some time in the beer cooler at Firefly choosing some beers. They have a good selection with a reasonable representation from around the world. I was happy to see some good Mikkeller brews there! Seemed somewhat pricey for the imported stuff but this is BC after all! I found the service somewhat indifferent when I was there, the cashier seemed somewhat "inconvenienced" when I wanted to purchase and made no effort at conversation. Firefly seems a little more focused on wine rather than beer as far as events and promotions go.

One very good place; as usual for the best places in Vancouver, it shares 95% of the beers with the other shops, but there are a couple of good extras here, and there are more beers than at the Maple Ridge location (don’t forget to check the walk-in cooler). Modern looking wine shop. Service doesn’t try to make you feel comfortable.

Not as good a selection as Brewer Creek, but still worth picking up some different choices. A large cooler room. Prices on average were higher than Brewery Creek, noticeably consistent in this regard. Some high quality stuff. Service was OK. Fancy laid out.

Another fantastic beer store. Staff are friendly and great; I’ve pestered them with many a question about hard to find beers and have received great information. Selection is nice and the prices are decent; fantastic when you see beer on sale!

Great selection; now with another location open in Maple Ridge. I go here to get all the beer’s I can’t at the BC LS’s. Selection is better than Brewery Creek, as are the prices.

One of the better places in the city for craft beer selection, just under Brewery Creek in terms of selection. They have a huge walk-in fridge with most of their beers in it, which is appreciated. Service is very friendly.

Nice large store with a brightly lit area in front that mostly features wines (although spirits are coming shortly) with a large walk-in cooler that houses the beer and cider. They have a unique way of laying out the products that is geared towards helping people pick out styles of beer rather than having them organized by brewer. For a geek like me, this is somewhat annoying as I tend to shop by brewer to find things that I want/haven’t had, but I can see it working for someone just getting initiated. The staff are pretty helpful and quite knowledgeable, which is always a plus. A solid addition to the Vancouver beer scene.

Nice store, well organized layout for wines and a large well organized walk-in cooler for beers. Good local selection (all Mission Springs stuff was here, all Buckerfield’s) and some nice imports too (Budel’s variety 8-pack). Quite a number of single bottles too.
