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 canít 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.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Nice store and open late. As to pricing, I couldnít 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 donít blame them. They did have a pretty decent selection, but nothing compared to what i am used to on the mainland.

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

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 canít 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!

Lots of wood and cramped quarters gives this place a little bit of life, which is more than I can say for the stores you get in Vancouver. They had a pretty good selection all round, with many interesting products not found in government stores. Some of the beers I bought are only available in 2 places in all of North America - here and Spinnakerís store. The selection of beer is not encyclopedic, but they do take care to bring in the spec products, which I suppose is the only reason a Ratebeerian would go. They also have Tugwell Creek meadery products. NOTE: HAS BEEN SURPASSED, RATING LOWERED.
