The beer section here is so small that you might miss it if you blink. There is a single small shelf and one double fridge of beer and that's it. The selection is not very good at all and consisted mostly of local stuff and the less interesting local stuff at that. The most interesting things found here were some Brooklyn bottles and a couple of somewhat interesting DDC bottles. The store itself is really nice and the staff are helpful, but this is very much a wine shop that also sells some beer.

Just to say that this isn't a beer store in the slightest, so I have to rate it as a wine store.

The selection and quality of the wine is great while the beer is very substandard. A few Garrison brews, Propeller and St Ambroise. Nothing exciting or special, but decent.

The employs seem nice enough, but the few I talked to seemed to think that St Ambroise's RIS was something that they 'downed' for a few good nights in Quebec.

...If you are planning on beer, don't go here, but for wine it's a good spot.

Bishop's Cellar isn't a place I visit frequently for beer, mostly due to their below average selection. This is, of course, due to the fact that it is primarily a place of many wines, rather than beers.

It is, however, home of several items that can not be found elsewhere in the city. Notably, it is the only place in the city where you can buy bottles of the local Sea Level Brewing Company brews. Additionally, there are generally a few items from farther abroad, such as BC or Italy.

The staff there is always helpful, friendly and willing to answer questions and make recommendations (though again, more so on the wine side than the beer side).

I generally make a visit once a month to see what they are stocking and I always manage to find a thing or two that I will end up taking home.
