I've been going (exclusively, if i can help it) to Sherbrooke since about last summer, and resolved myself to put in a good review because the store definitely deserves it.
This store in itself has opened my eyes up to good beer, and with a massive selection (up to 425 last time I was there) I'll probably never drink through the whole inventory like I set out to.

Every week or two there is something new on the shelves, and there is always a good conversation to be had, usually ending in some really excellent recommendations like the St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout from a couple weeks ago. I'll be returning to pick up a couple bottles of Fuller's Vintage within the next week.

So thanks, Sherbrooke, without you I'd still be drinking macros.

It is about time I put in my review of this store. I have been shopping there almost exclusively since my first visit a couple of months ago.

My last visit was Wednesday night, and the sign in the parking lot said 390 varieties of beer available. To make it simple for anyone in Edmonton looking to shop for beer, the owner's goal is to carry whatever beer is possible. I can only think of about 6 or 7 beers that are sold commercially in Alberta that aren't there, and that's counting 3 or 4 from the Berghoff line.

The cooler is as large as any in the city, and well laid out, but with the constantly expanding selection it can be hard to track down what you are looking for.

Prices seem to be a bit lower than the Chateau Louis, though I haven't purchased some of the newest beers from anywhere but Sherbrooke.

The staff is all quite friendly, and are quick to help you locate something if asked. The owner and his wife both seem to be fairly interested in quality beer, and are great people to talk to if you have the opportunity.

This is my liquor store now, and unless something drastic happens, I don't see that changing for a long time. Every visit has been a pleasant one for me.

Was introduced to this place by my buddy Rico (elricorico). Until then I thought that I had found all there was to experience in Edmonton for beer shopping...oh was I wrong.

The area of town is a touch shady...and this store is found in a small strip mall...I would have never expected such a quality liquor by looking at the exterior.

The beer cooler is a good size and is full of many brews not available elsewhere. By far the best selection I've seen. They have the standard gift packs available here plus a few. This store also stocks up on many beers as soon as they become available...which is more than I can say about any other stores in the city. If something’s new in town....its here.

Service in excellent. If Jim is around he talks beer and gives the heads up on new things coming to town. Everyone else I’ve dealt with has also been friendly and knowledgeable. I even got a free glass once!!

Prices are very reasonable...better than anywhere else in town. I can never complain about how much I spend when I go here.

Overall a very good experience. I enjoy every trip I make to Sherbrooke and always walk out satisfied. I don’t plan to do much shopping anywhere else any time soon.

Found in a mini mall right off the big traffic circle on St. Albert Trail, I was able to find this place without having the exact address on me. A bit seedier part of town, I never would have sought out a refined beer selection here if I hadn't been notified of it.

The beer cooler was large and well-stocked when I visited, the second best selection in Edmonton besides the Chateau Louis, and one of the owners mentioned to me that they plan on eventually carrying everything that is available to distribute in Alberta. What impressed me is that I was able to find a bottle of Wild Rose's seasonal cherry porter for my parents while I was up there visiting, and realized that they had it stocked weeks and weeks in advance of most of the stores in Calgary, where it is brewed. Most noticable was the regional selection of micros (especially AB and BC), and European imports.

This establishment is definitely a diamond in the rough, and worth seeking out, especially for those BA's living on the north part of town.
