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 (donít forget to check the walk-in cooler). Modern looking wine shop. Service doesnít 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; Iíve 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 beerís I canít at the BC LSís. Selection is better than Brewery Creek, as are the prices.

This place used to rival Brewery Creek and 16th Street for the best liquor store in Vancouver, but has gone way down hell since. Selection is far inferior to the two aforementioned and the prices are higher.

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/havenít 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 Buckerfieldís) and some nice imports too (Budelís variety 8-pack). Quite a number of single bottles too.

New store, bright wine section and the beer section is almost entirely in a walk-in fridge. They carry a healthy range of brews right now, rivalling but slightly different to that of the nearby Lennox store. Their website at present mainly lists breweries so doesnít give a very good indicator of what they actually carry. They have an interesting take selling wine and beer, though. This is a store I think will be worth watching. Last store I said that about was Brewery Creek.
Itís a bit tough to access given the state of construction outside - I just parked in a no parking zone with my blinkers on.
