This place is not in Village Green Mall, this store is located a few blocks away behind the Casino.

This store has chilled beers unlike the Village Green Mall store and has a better selection, perhaps not a bigger selection but much more of what a beer geek would be looking for. I found some Driftwood OCD's from 2010 on my visit in the Summer of 2012, needless to say I bought them all. Great selection of West Coast gems, you can clearly tell there's a beer geek working here. Driftwood seasonals alone would be reason to check this place out but there's lots of solid BC brews on the shelf, Lighthouse, Howe Sound, Central City, Phillips and Russel just to name a few, some stuff from the Pacific North West states too. No beer geek on staff when I was there but the girl working was very nice and helpful and had a basic knowledge and her help was appreciated.
Not exactly the giant walk in beer rooms I find in my home province (Alberta) but this would be my first stop whenever I'm in Vernon, I recommend this place to anyone passing through.

A very pleasant surprise for the closest cold beer and wine near our motel (Holiday Inn Express). Great selection, very impressed coming from Vancouver. Prices are excellent compared to the city as well, my guess is $2-3 less on some bottles. Should be expected, only in Vancouver do the private liquor stores manage to get away with the markup they do. Like the other reviewer, there are some gems to be had here as well - saw Driftwood Singularity 2012 there.
