not a pretty place, but especially for an out-of-towner who lived here before he was legal, the new distro selection is fantastic. LOTS of Craft brews and Canadian swill varaints not available the further you get from there.

Friendly staff. I mulled over beers and wandered around for an hour and they bore with me. Has most that Wegman’s has and more, but doesn’t let you split up sixers. About ten taps of growler draught when I was there. A good import section with lots of Danish and Belgian goods. Lots of imp stouts, Belgian styles. A few cheap bombers ($4) and the rest usually fall in the 7-12$ range. Filled up a backpack of beer here but unfortunately couldn’t go crazy for fear of raising the wrath of Canadian customs.

Not much to write home about, although maybe ok for the area. Small store with a few shelves of bombers and a bunch of 6 packs. Service was fine both times I was in.

The good: has everything you can find at Wegmans and more, with a dozen or so taps for growler fills. Huge variety, well-organized shelves, lots of refrigerated craft beer. The bad: grisly, unwelcoming employees, dumpy location with a deserted, sketchy-looking parking lot, fulfills every stereotype of your typical cheap American liquor store (overly bright lights, dirty floor, customers smoking beside ice box out front). A destination for its gigantic selection, just don’t expect to be ’wowed’ by the service or aesthetics.

Not a huge selection, but very close to my house. Growler fills are a huge plus. Some bottles are available as singles but others can’t be broken up. Not quite the selection available at premier but a bit cheaper.

Not many beers, but what they had was top notch. Many anniversary beers, some Maine Beer Company stuff, and plenty of big beers. I was quite pleased. Was weird though, but six bombers and they jammed them in a cheap plastic bag. Plus no carts or carrying totes. Discouraging volume buying. Prices were okay. Service was okay, front desk guy knew his stuff.

Easy to miss this place unless you know its there. Appears small from the outside. It isnt a huge store but they make good use of the space. Lots of macro large packs towards the left and back of the place. but theres coolers full of six packs and singles towards the back right in the middles theres a few shelves lined with craft seasonals and imports. Definitely worth a stop if your in the area looking for some craft brews

Finally, a decent beer stop in Niagara Falls! Nice selection of regional micros, and a few solid imports. Better prices than Premier Gourmet, and the ability to have growlers filled is a huge plus. They’ll fill pretty much any growler you bring in; it doesn’t have to be a Consumer’s growler. My only major complaint is not being able to split up 6 packs or buy singles. Oh well. It’s definitely a solid stop.

The closest of all of the Consumer’s locations to Toronto with a pretty solid selection. Like others have mentioned of this chain, they don’t split up six packs, but otherwise the selection of bombers are the best you’ll see. The import selection pales in comparison to Premier but I suppose that is to be expected. Awesome selection of rotating growler fills is great and reasonably priced. It’s definitely worth it to stop at one of the locations during a trip to the area.
