by nova scotia standards it is the bomb. rocheforts and westmalles are in. some central city beers, dieu du ciel in abundance, rogues, north coast. i hear lagunitas are coming in, as are some brew dog beers, as well as all the usual suspects from the east coast.
nova scotia is crazy expensive to buy alcohol in but as far as the selection goes it is great for non generic beers.

Easily the go to place for beer in the Atlantic/Maritime provinces. These guys seem to have figured out that there’s nothing out there for the beer loving community and filled the niche well. A lot of the selection is currently from Quebec based brewers - DDC, Unibroue, Brasseurs de Montreal (which I hadn’t even heard of until these guys started selling them) - with a few American crafts, Belgians and locals. I have it on pretty good authority they’ll be getting some Scottish brews soon. The service is usually top notch most of the time. A few of the people that work here obviously really dig their beer but others don’t seem to know a thing about it.

A nice surprise for this displaced Ontarian. Lagunitas IPA (my fave) and a random but decent selection of bottles from all over. So a 12oz bottle of Lagunitas is nearly $5, that’s ok because it’s a rare treat. Other good stuff--from USA, from Belgium, UK. As ever, the interprovincial trade barriers make the other Cdn provinces under-represented, but they can’t be responsible for our stupid prohibition era laws. Sadly the spirits selection was limited and nothing smaller than 750ml (I was travelling so wanted a little tipple). But this is rate BEER so ignore that :)

The name might be wines, but the whole section just inside the mall entrance is beer. Long hours, 10am to 8pm seven days a week.
This location pretty much completely lacks macros, but there’s really no need for them to be carried. Premier mostly carries craft brews, either local Propeller or Garrison and a wide variety from Quebec, with a small but varied selection of international brews. Most of their stock is either hard or impossible to find anywhere else in Atlantic Canada.
The staff did not seem surprised that I was stocking up on my way back to New Brunswick and helpfully gave me a wine box to carry all my finds back to my car.
Of note, they have an online catalog, but the catalog lists some selections as being sold only in 4, 6 or 12 packs. While this is the case for online orders, in the store, as far as I could tell, everything was available as singles. Buying larger packs was a better value, but if you want a wide variety or to try something before committing to 5 more this was very exciting.

Currently the best location for bottled beer in the province, their selection is unparalleled. Friendly staff who tend to know their stuff, and beer is almost always well-handled. They’ve got a cooler in the back now for some of their storage.

Now in their permanent location, lighting is much better than before and have gradually built up the best beer selection of the 4 private stores in Halifax, carrying almost 20 different Rogue beers, some Unibroue, Flying Dog and micros from BC, Alberta, Newfoundland, and here. Staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Now located in downtown Halifax, in addition to having the best selection, also very convenient for visitors to the city.

best beer selection in the maritimes. Staff is knowledgeable, and appreciate the importance of offering stuff people in Halifax and around probably don’t see that often.

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.
