Ok it is time I wrote a review of this place since I go there all the time. By far the best beer selection in Vancouver. Everytime I walk in here there is some new beers to buy. The small size of the store is being taken care of as the store in front is being converted to enlarge the store. Gerry himself is a beer geek like the rest of us and his love of beer has brought among others a full line of Half-Pint beers and Speakeasy into the shop. I couldn't find any other store with the full line. The pricing can be higher sometimes than other private shops but I guarantee you will find things to take home. ( for you US BA's there is lots of local craft beer with special releases in stock).

As of August 08 the store is about 3 times as big with one whole room for beer. More beer and more coolers plus more room to move make this a welcome change.

I was in Vancouver on business today and dropped in at the Brewery Creek Liquor Store to pick up some Canadian craft brew that I can't get in the USA.

It's a good little booze store, with a reasonable layout and a clean, inviting atmosphere. Beer is laid out broadly by region: local Canadian crafts, American crafts, and imports by country. They employ little flags on the pricetags of imports, which is maybe a little corny but a touch that I personally enjoy.

The selection seems pretty good to me, with even some French and Belgian beers I don't see around the Seattle area. It's not huge, but covers a pretty broad spectrum of styles and breweries that should work for most people.

Service was fine; they didn't have staff walking the floor -- the place was pretty busy and everyone was operating a till. Prices seemed a little high for me, especially for American beers, but the local craft brew was pretty reasonable. It's close to where I go for work, so I will probably return here on my next trip up to BC.

For such a small footprint, there isn't better beer selection in Vancouver. Beer is #1 over all other liquor types at Brewery Creek, which is pretty unusual (and awesome).

Staff are friendly and helpful but may seem aloof at first glance sometimes. Plenty of very knowledgeable folks here.

The flipside on the selection though is that Brewery Creek is usually the first to sell out of very limited or highly anticipated beers. Not for lack of bottle limits either - it's mostly due to their active social media presence.

Touch more expensive than most competitors, but usually by a nickels.
