This place used to be a bit better, but now it has really gone down hill. Nothing particularly unique or special, just lots of Swans beer. It is quite cheap though and service is almost non existent.

Nice, small little bottle shop right next to Swans Hotel. Selection isn’t especially extensive, but they have some stuff and it’s worth checking out. Prices are reasonable. Service is a little cold, but pleasant enough. Not overly impressive.

A decent selection of local beers but that’s just about it for beers. I didn’t 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, Swan’s (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.

A typical off-sale to a brewpub. The selection isn’t 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 I’m so disappointed that nothing ever changes. Their wine selection is pretty poor as well.

Too bad they don’t 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.

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.
