The selection seemed picked over. There were some interesting items, but nothing really blew my doors off. Their prices were fair. There seemed to be no one wathcing over the beer area. Unlike the other areas, where employees were tripping over themselves to help you, there really was no service.
It was a nice place, more for the food and kitchen items than for the beer. The beer selection was bigger than usual, with a good (not great) selections of Belgians and micros. If my rating seems low this is a beer site first, right?

I was in heaven as soon as I walked in. First I check out premier liquors, a huge warehouse sized liquor and wine store. Then found premier gourmet next door. First, the selection of fine food. Mustards, hot sauces, cheeses, meats, coffee, tea, juices, crackers...and then I found the beer corner. The selection was incredible, belgians, dunkels, stouts, tons of stuff not available to me in Pittsburgh, and the prices were the best iíve ever seen. The staff was very knowledgable and super friendly. I only wish a store like this was in Pittsburgh.

Premier Gourmet is a brilliant bottle store: great selection with lots of interesting, sometimes hard- to-find Belgian, English and U.S. micro beers. The service is excellent, and the salespeople, especially "the beer guys," know beer. However, Premier Gourmet is more than just a beer store. It is also a gourmet food store that has a capricious array of cheeses, coffee, hot sauces, meats, mustards, pastries, spices, and so much more. Next to the food and beer store (separate but in the same building) is Premier Liquor, a warehouse-size store that has an impressive selection of wines & liquors. All-in-all, a fantastic experience. I could literally spend a day in this store. Now, if Buffalo can support such a place, why can’t Toronto?

Well, I went back today and finally found the beer section. I canít believe I didnít speak up last time I was there. Amazing Belgian selections. Some Iíve never seen before. Very reasonably priced. In addition to the Belgians, they have an assortment of other fantastic beers. Highly recommended and will go back again.

Located in a somewhat desolate area, or so it seemed...beer is tucked away in the back of the store. Lots of selection! Good country and state representation. Lots of good belgians including Cantillon and Fantome - unfortunately they didnít have any Westvleteren when I was there. The prices were decent though I have seen better in the USA. I could have easily bought four or five times as much as I had but unfortunately I had to restrain myself due to customs. I didnít buy any food but it looked like there was a good selection of quality meats and cheeses.

In a word, selection. Organized by Country or State are a half dozen aisles. Buying a bottle rather than a six-pack make it great for sampling. Gaining a profile for Canadians travelling through the USA from Niagra Falls/Toronto as its near the border. European selection.
Update summer 2012: New store, more stock, easier to traverse the aisles, 20 taps of the latest coming into town.

I love Premier. The selection is great and staff is always willing to talk. I canít imagine a day where I walked into this store and didnít find something I wanted to drink.

Medium amount of beer to select from, but they really have some nice hard to find beer here. The belgian selection is excellent, with many fantomes, westy, drie font, cantillon. But what makes this store above average is the vintage beer selection. Very friendly and helpful staff, great selection of gourmet foods, cheeses, sauces.

Came up to college in Buffalo excited to see this place because I heard it was one of this best in the country. As a whole Premier is a great store. Amazing liqour and food selection. The beer honestly didnt impress me too much. Some rare items. A lot of nice Belgians. Other than that, I have seen much better.
