A larger store with likely the largest selection in Victoria. Many are old though, which can be good or bad. They tend to get quiet a few limited releases so if you are looking for an Abyss or such, they tend to get them. Staff was decent and prices were good. A pretty good shop and since itís close to so many other things I would say you should go.

Most of the people who work here really want to help you find what youíre looking for or at least suggest something youíll like.For the most part, iíve found that they are excited about the product they sell and are always happy to make recommendations they would firmly stand behind. the craft beer selection is ever growing. local and world beers are constantly changing and growing. if you are the type who likes to walk in and try something new you wonít be disappointed. wine, beer and spirits seem to be in a constant rotation. thatís not to say that there isnít consistency, popular brands are often reliably in stock. they have lots of spec items that you canít find at most government liquor stores, check out their fat ass tequila itís pricey but if youíre a patron drinking douchebag this stuff is similarly priced and way better. plus your friends will totally think youíre badass for liking expensive tequila thatís both good, and not in every crappy hip hop song. youílll be a maverick. The cherry on the cake is the slowly but growing single malts they are aquiring. never a frequent buy but itís always a treat and nice to expand your palate with new scotches.
all in all, a good place to go if you are not set in your ways in terms of alcohol. and even if you are, they usually have what youíre looking for. i like it.

Nice place with great prices for a cold beer and wine and friendly service. Selection is pretty good coming from an Ontario perspective. They have a few European imports, a couple U.S. beers and a bunch of BC stuff.

This store is the worst in the capital region. Rude staff that will not help you unless you wait for them to finish talking to eachother, they keep their spirits against a window with sun pouring in on them, which speaks volumes about the level of expertise in this store.
I bought the first bad case of lucky beer Iíve ever had in my life this week. Itís not only well past its expiry date, it tastes like itís been through multiple severe temperature changes.
The bottle of Jameson i bought had been in the sun for months and tasted so awful I poured it down the drain. What a disgrace.

Looking like any liquor store around, at least they have many Spinnakers beers, maybe Moon Under Water too, and a decent offer of Ice Ciders, Ciders and Meads.

Very pleasant little shop with a nice selection of canadian, US and good international beers. You can pick up wifi from a nearby Starbucks in the shop which makes it easy to check Ratebeer.

Good stuff that I canít get in Washington. Good selection (as far as I know) of local beer... About 7-8 Phillips brews.

Visited them after a meal at the Spinnakers Brew Pub. Picked up 4 750 ml of single malts and the Elgoodís Captain Vancouver 250th Anniversary Ale. As a citizen of Fort George. I felt it important to test this brew. If it were not for John Jacob Astor, Captain Robert Gray, and Capt. Vancouver the West Coast beer scene may not have happened?

Went there after GCBF. After talking to the guy at the till it sounded like exhibitors had given him a better selection of beers to try than they had for sale. BC may have more brew pubs but I will take Willow Park Liquor over any other store I have been to in Canada!
