We love this liquor store because of it's beer selection. You can buy growlers of craft beer, or peruse numerous brews in their walk-in cooler. Our favourite deal is the "Pick 6", where customers can choose from a variety of beers to create their own 6-Pack. Customer service is always great - the staff here are super knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their products.
