Great store, and great selection, especially in Atlantic Canada. Prices are sky high though, one real big downside from where I sit. Still, I give them credit for trying and I donít mind paying extra for quality or different experirences.

Located in a small shopping center in the city. I was there on a Monday when the hours were 10-5. Different than most beer stores I am used to in the States, in that this actually is more like, as the name says, a boutique. More wine than beer. Bottles are all nicely displayed on nice shelves in smallish quantities. Amount of inventory and selection certainly wonít overwhelm you but they had what I wanted so I was happy. Will probably find all the local stuff youíd want. Person working there was very pleasant and willing to help.

Popped in while in Halifax on a trip out east. Some good unique stuff available especially east coast (Garrison, Propeller and Pump House), DDC beers and a smattering of interesting US stuff. Certainly a number of things oneís not finding in the LCBO. Thought the layout was a little odd - no apparent logic to the beer layout. Really good value on Canadian beers, less so on the US ones. Glad I stopped in.

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.

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.

Easily the go to place for beer in the Atlantic/Maritime provinces. These guys seem to have figured out that thereís 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 hadnít even heard of until these guys started selling them) - with a few American crafts, Belgians and locals. I have it on pretty good authority theyíll 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 donít seem to know a thing about it.

Good place for micro imports and some belgian but the selection is limited. I got some flying fish as they were out of the Rogue ales I was looking for....got some canned witbier that was OK....if they expand their beer selection and get iyt in a cooler out of the light this COULD be haliaxís best bottle shop.

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 thereís 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.

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, thatís ok because itís 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 canít 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 :)

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. Theyíve got a cooler in the back now for some of their storage.
