A decent selection of local beers but thatís just about it for beers. I didnít buy anything due to the shitty beer selection.

Attached to the brewpub/hotel, this place had a very limited selection of regional craft brews and ciders. I found Phillips, Swanís (obviously), Vancouver brewing, and Merridale. There was nothing by Spinnakers, Canoe, Driftwood, or any mainland breweries. Staff was completely unhelpful and indifferent.

Cheap looking joint, lots of macro stuff and a few singles, lots of wine and the full Buckerfields line. Staff were disinterested and clientele were the corona-guzzling crowd and half drunk already. Serves its purpose, glad I could buy the Buckerfields in bottles.

CapFlu  (205) Victoria, British Columbia | October 26, 2006
A typical off-sale to a brewpub. The selection isnít that great and mainly caters to the downtown after-hours crowd. They have a limited selection of their own bomber (22oz) beers (usually 4 Swan beers) and a couple of Spinnakers (3) and Canoe (3). Every time I come in here Iím so disappointed that nothing ever changes. Their wine selection is pretty poor as well.

Too bad they donít bottle more of their own beers as I think the Swan beers are the best of the brewpubs currently.

This store was OK. The selection was not that good, had the beers they made but nothing to great.

Oakes  (660) Vancouver, British Columbia | September 11, 2005
Fairly typical beer & wine, with a house beers in bottles, Merridales stuff and a handful of spec products. Not in the same league as the best stores in Vic, though, but its location beside the brewpub is a strong suit.

Not a bad beer store. Everything is in coolers and you can get all of the Swanís beer, as well as a few Phillips that are unavailable on the mainland. Not quite as good as the Spinnakers store, but worth checking out if you missed anything on tap next door.

Located right next door to the Buckerfield brewery, this shop sells candy, a bit of food and local wine and beer. There is a wall of coolers on one side of the small shop, and beer from the local micros and regionals can be found. This is also the only place to buy the Swanís brews in bottles. Overall it had a nice feeling to it, and was designed like an upscale newspaper stand and wine shop.
