Very posh, nice decor. Beer seemed to be a bit of an afterthought, and selection was poor but prices were excellent - same price you could expect to pay for Spinnakers beers at the brewpub. A few surprises - Rogue and Canoe when I popped in - and the staff were friendly and knew what they were talking about. Will definitely pop in again.

Pretty decent place right downtown. Small store with lots of wine and spirits. Beer is in the back. They have plenty of locals and some nice imports. Some people complain about the pricing, but when a 4 pack of Old Rasputin is $23 in Regina and only $12 here, I can’t complain with you. Lots of beer in the coolers and more on the shelves. It was pretty cool to see the craft brews before the generic macros. I bought the following. Sierra Nevada hop torpedo x2, Salt Spring porter, Green flash imperial ipa, Pyramid thunderhead ipa, Howe sound total eclipse of the hop for $40 something.

Visited during a very brief trip to Victoria. I did not have time to hit any brewpubs, asked one of the locals and they mentioned this place was the closest to the ferry. The interior was very nice, mostly a Wine shop, but does feature a couple of racks and a full cooler of beer. There were many local micro brews both available in six packs and bombers. I did not shop anywhere else, though this place seemed pretty spendy. The shop guy who helped me was knowledgeable, and very friendly.

A pleasant surprise in downtown Vic. The guys were quite helpful. Nice lookin’ store and a bunch of bottles not available in regular liquor stores. Too bad I dont’ go to Victoria often.

Nice store and open late. As to pricing, I couldn’t tell, not only was I pretty drunk while shopping they gave me an industry discount, which I appreciated. Not a beer geek in the place but that late mid week I don’t blame them. They did have a pretty decent selection, but nothing compared to what i am used to on the mainland.

Expensive, but really nice selection of local, BC and west coast beers. They also have a very nice selection of Belgian beers that I have not seen anywhere else. Their selection of east coast american beers was ok as well. Several dogfish head and brooklyn beers were also to be had. If you are looking for something different you can’t go far wrong here although you will be paying a premium.

Long and narrow layout, with the beers at the back, some in a wall-cooler, and some displayed like fine wine. Decent enough mix of local stuff and imports, but some of it was pretty pricey. Staff were okay, but I got tired of hearing the girl at the counter bash French Canadians!

Dark and clean, modern store with a better than average beer selection at the rear. I popped into this seemingly best victoria beer store in the hope of finding Driftwood products I’d not seen in Vancouver. Unfortunately, that was not the case although I was told the ESB had just run out. I ended up not being terribly impressed, but I guess on the island, there are not many places with 100+ craft beers for sale. The selection still had quite a few BC microbrews and since many of the best breweries come from the victoria area, there were plenty of those, but nothing I had not seen in Vancouver.
