Sherbrook liquor is absolutely amazing. the amount of beer that is in the store will just blow your mind, this is a place that gives wine and beyond superstore a run for it's money. The staff is very very knowledgeable and will even help you pack your boxes of goodies out to your car for you. top-notch place in my opinion. If you are ever in Edmonton. check out Sherbrooke liquor. It's absolutely amazing

I wouldn't be on BA if it weren't for Sherbrooke. I was inkling for something new beer-wise, and a google search for "Best beer store in Edmonton" turned up Sherbrooke. After checking out their website I was intrigued, and decided to make the trip across the city. It was well worth it. The first time I walked into the PACKED beer cooler I was completely blown away by the absolutely overwhelming selection. I quickly filled my basket with a bunch of interesting beers from a number of interesting styles that I had never seen anywhere else in Edmonton. The atmosphere is great, one glance around that beer cooler, separated by styles, tells you that the people at Sherbrooke love beer, and that enthusiasm is infectious! The staff are friendly and knowledgable as well. I've already sent a couple friends interested in exploring beer beyond the macros to Sherbrooke, and I'll be certain to recommend them to anyone in Edmonton looking for an absolutely astounding selection certain to satisfy any taste.

In terms of availability of beers in Canada this is as good as it gets. If it's available in Alberta they will almost always have it, although it may not always be in stock. The "Sherbrooke House Beers" or whatever you would like to call them are usually pretty good with some of them being really good.

I still remember the first time I walked into the walk-in fridge and was completely overwhelmed. I had no clue what to buy and spent an hour and a half trying to decide. The prices for the most part are pretty decent. I haven't ever paid what I considered an exorbitant amount for anything considering what I was getting, although if you're not careful it is easy to drop a lot more money than you were planning on here.

Overall it's the best liquor store I've ever been to and I look forward to it every time I go.

I've only had the opportunity to visit this establishment once, but I certainly wish we had one in Calgary. Edmonton-ians are blessed with one of the best beer selections in Canada (if not THE best in Canada).

They've got something to appease any beer lover, and beyond their wide selection of imports and domestic gems, they have a plethora of their own contract offerings (which I have yet to be disappointed with). If you're ever in Edmonton you MUST visit Sherbrooke Liquor!

My BA partner in crime recently visited and after making away with a scandalous haul he was also given some exclusive beers which weren't even on the shelf. Here's a place that is passionate about providing the best selection and service to their customers!

WOW.
Not only a beer lover's paradise, a wine lover and spirit lover's as well!
From the outside it looks quite modest and well, small. Stepping inside you see the shelves are stocked full. VERY full. Then the beer cooler. Oh how I'd like to live in there. Macro brews all centered and 'plopped' into stacks, while the 'real' brews are all around the wall. Sorted in Brewery families, and also by beer style. Very easy to navigate. Surprises all over the place, hard to find beers, 19 exclusive brews... everything. Also an excellent cooler/cider selection.
Staff was very helpful. Answered every question very in-depth. Very knowledgable.
The value was great too. Nothing was over-priced, but all in a good range to keep customers and the business owner happy.Even the customers were helpful! Such a lovely place for the beer (and wine and spirit) lover.
I highly reccommend everybody to visit this store. Good location too, fairly close to Kingsway mall.
If only they could charge me rent and let me move in...

I had numerous recommendations to visit this place and I stored them away in my mind, since I don't get up to Edmonton too often. When I do, I had counted on the "Chateau Louis" liquor store as my place to check for the odd Belgian that I couldn't find in Calgary, or for some of their "Chat-o Stout" (brewed exclusively for them by local brewers "Alley Kat").
The reason I mention all this?
I had to go to the Chateau Louis hotel as part of my work, and to get there I had to drive right past the Sherbrooke Liquor Store. I gladly made a side trip to see what the fuss was all about.
It is unassuming, and I thought I was going to be disappointed. Once inside the large cold beer area, however, it was instantly apparent that the owners here love beer and have put together an outstanding selection for us beer lovers.
Amongst the brews that I couldn't find in Calgary were THREE exclusive ones, brewed by Alley Kat, for the Sherbrooke: A chili beer, a chocolate-cherry porter, and a double IPA.
I wandered through and recognized maybe 90% of the bottles as ones I'd seen in Calgary. The other 10% were quite exciting for me, and I dropped $75 in no time.
I'll definitely visit again.

It's the best beer store in Edmonton. It's not in the greatest neighbourhood, but it's not in a slum, either. Still, I make sure to lock up before going in, even though my vehicle is in plain sight the whole time.

The beer cooler is a walk-in style one, several hundred square feet. A disappointing percentage is dedicated to wine coolers and macros, but I suppose those are the meat and potatoes that pay the rent.

The staff are friendly and knowledgable, and the selection is the best in the city (though that's not saying much). The inventory does rotate, so you can't be sure you'll be able to get a steady supply of a given brew, but the plus side is that there's always new stuff coming in.

I can't really comment about the selection of liquor or wine there.
