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.

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.

Attached to the excellent Spinnakers brewpub, this is the only place in BC where Iíve seen beer that isnít readily available at government liquor stores. Iíve managed to pick up things from Great Divide, and some bottle from Phillips that arenít around on the mainland. You can also pick up bottles of several of their own beers that arenít available in government stores.

A decent selection - very impressed with the Alaskan and Elysian beers as I havenít seen them elsewhere in the province. I know Paul Hadfield had some hand in the establishment of the Elysian (Seattle) so its nice to seen the connection is still there.

Very little selection - they had a decent amount of local beer and a smattering of Belgian beers, but almost no British beers. They were really helpful, and managed to get rid of a customer who was drunk and trying to strike up conversation with my poor wife. Beware, though, they charge a premium on Spinnakers beers - get a better selection of Spinnakers stuff for up to 65 cents cheaper per bottle at the brewpub itself, only a 5-minute walk away.
