Fairly big store with a large selection of beer including a walk in cooler. Focus on local and US craft with some older imports.

Located in a weird office building - of which they seem to be the only tenant giving it an uninviting feel from outside & made me think they were closed. They were open, the huge shop had high ceilings and was inviting as we’re the friendly staff. A nice big selection: one aisle of belgians/germans, tons of US stuff and a good selection of local craft. I’d have bought a bunch but alas my bag was already at the max weight allowance for my flight.

A good craft beer shop but nothing notable. Lots of their beer is right by a huge window, so if you are concerned about light struck beer this may be a bit worrying. They have a cooler as well but again in all a good shop but nothing notable.

A large walk-in cooler greets you with many beers. They carry 6-packs, cans and singles too. I grabbed a couple of cans on special (ha!) to go, which was nice to have refreshments while walking around outside. Staff were friendly though the lady behind the counter looked at me suspiciously.

Just a few minutes away from brewery creek which is probably a better store, Firefly is nevertheless worth a visit if you can spare the time. Indeed, the selection is of course mostly similar, but there are quite a few complements. In fact, the BC selection I believe was greater at Firefly than Brewery Creek. When you enter, you’re in a cleanly laid out, spacey, modern wine store with an aisle of beer on the right. Make sure to step into the walk-in cooler at the rear as this is where 90% of the beers are stocked. It is very cold in there and makes for a weird experience unless you have a winter coat as you don’t feel like hanging there for too long, yet there’s a few hundred bottles to browse through. We did not interact much with the staff, but they seemed professional enough.

This is a great store for beers from all over the world and craft beers in particular. The majority of the selection is in a walk-in cold store in the back and this is very cold. Make sure you wear a fleece or something more than just a shirt because you’ll want to spend as much time in there as possible. This is definately a store I will return to.

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.
