Small store with a small selection, but most notable for having lineups from a few breweries not normally seen in NS. Great prices on the DDC line.

Revisited many times (but finally updating my rating which dates from a long time ago). They’ve done a hell of a lot to improve the selection in here. A nice selection of California, BrewDog and a bunch of stuff I’ve not seen anywhere else. Can be pricey for some of the more obscure stuff but you aren’t going to find it anywhere else. Friendly guys inside. Easily the best shop in the province.
Small store with what seems like an incredible amount of wasted space. Has a few things that you probably will not find anywhere else, but it doesnt really have a very broad selection at all.

This is probably the best bottle shop in Halifax. Excellent serive with beer knowledgeable staff, DDC available, good selection of NS and NB beers, ciders...gives the NSLC a run for its money. Its located in City Centre, right next to Pete’s Frootique (toodeloo).

This is a really pleasant, rather highbrow establishment in an upscale downtown mall, reminiscent of some of the nicer-looking stores in Montreal. As porterhouse mentions, it has a boutique feel to it and when I visited for about 1/2 hour I was the only customer so I got great service. The selection is the best I saw in the Atlantic provinces -- which isn’t saying much -- I managed to find about a dozen products from Garrison, Picaroon’s, Propeller etc and they even had some Rogue. Nice little wine and whisky selection including Cape Breton’s Glen Breton single malt (though that is at a much higher price than I saw it elsewhere). I’d say it’s a must if you’re in Halifax.

New location is pretty nice. Staff was friendly and indulged a back pack wearing student who probably didnt look like he was going to drop the coin he ended up spending here. Lots of interesting stuff for Halifax, some belgians and american micros. The highlight when I was there was a lot of Rogue, and Pacific Western Brewing stuff we don’t normally see. One cautionary note is that some of the less popular stuff may have been on the shelf for a while. Next Rogue order supposed to be even more brands. The trick seems to be to check back often.

I’d forgetten that I hadn’t rated this place until recently, when I phoned them to check on their inventory of Propeller Pumpkin Ale prior to my parents coming out for a visit to Calgary. The service is among the very best I’ve had in any beer store. The selection, if kept in the context of the Canadian maritimes, is excellent, but by most other larger centre’s standards would be considered modest. A good representation of East Coast micros, including some from Newfoundland depending on your timing. There is a smattering of quality American offerings (Rogue in particular), as well as some good UK (Sam Smith’s Broughton) and Belgian offerings.

Visited on a Sunday after in November, I picked up most of my return-trip items here. It’s surprising how crappy some of the beers are, next to ones that absolutely amazing. The goods included tons of Nova Scotia brews (Propellor, Garrison), many Rogue bombers, and there were a couple nasty ’finds’ but overall a great place to stock up. The staff was especially surprised at our haul, asking if ALL of them were different?! -- and then bugged out at our final total (~$100, mostly reasonable). Guess they’re used to students coming by filling up on cases.

Probably the best place to go for the widest selection in Nova Scotia. Not only the Maritimes, but until you get to Quebec or across the border to Bangor atleast.

Stopped in to fill my cart with Canada’s finest and I was not let down. The best selection of beer I hit while in Canada by a mile. A pretty good selection from all over.
