A very classy shop, near Cole's bar and therefore right off the Peace Bridge. This allows a new option for Canadians to shop for bottles if they can't get far enough to Premiere. The comparisons start. Premiere has more selection, particularly with their very liberal singles policy, much spottier service,more food and soda with your beers, more parking, and closer to the main though more expensive Buffalo shopping haunts. Village is more navigatable aisles, slightly better pricing, and of course a different part of town.

A bit disappointed. Nothing here that I couldn't find elsewhere. The selection would be good for somebody who hadn't tried as much beer. Still a good selection nonetheless, just nothing crazy when I went.
They have a good looking growler area that I didn't patronize. Glassware available for purchase as well.

2 Village Beer Merchants around here. They have a pretty good selection at both stores, especially compared to other stores in the city. The only issue is they are a few dollars more expensive on average. Sometimes it's worth it for the close drive. Employees are cool, but they aren't always around to shoot the stuff with.
