Our Loyalty Program Drawing Winner!

We kicked off our Loyalty Program prior to our move last spring with the enticement of one entry in our Grand Prize Drawing for every $20 members spent. We delayed the drawing of the prize in order to sign up as many customers as we could to give them a shot at what was a nearly $3000 prize.

Beer Mail #42: Treats For Father’s Day!

Give your pops an extra-special gift of BEER MAIL this year. We put together the kind of interesting selection of beers that your dad may not choose himself, but we’re betting he’d love to try. These are special brews from BC, Ontario and even Washington state. Style-wise, there’s a little bit of everything: an exotic IPA, a malty German-style ale, a farmhouse saison, a slightly smoky rauchbier, a special beer/cider hybrid and a strong Belgian-style dark ale. We’ll send your father a mixed case of 12 large-format bottles* (two of each beer) for just $116 + shipping. Remember, delivery is free to Victoria addresses!

We offer a flat shipping charge of just $25 for Canada Post delivery anywhere in BC! FREE delivery to Victoria area addresses.

Remember, this box will only be available for two weeks, or until it’s sold out.

*All are 650ml bottles (except where noted) and you’ll get two bottles of each beer. Sorry, no substitutions.

Beer Mail #41: IPAs & Sours(Sold-out)

When people start looking for lighter beers in the warmer months, a lot of IPAs and sours start to show up. So we put together a BEER MAIL package that spotlights these great flavours. The IPAs included here aren’t the bitter bombs of a previous generation. The emphasis is on big fruit notes, rather than bitterness. In fact, every beer here contains some fruit aspect (passionfruit, pineapple, coconut, grapefruit and even peach), except the Persephone New Wave IPA, which just tastes like a fruit bomb! These are all really interesting and tasty brews—perfect for the warmer weather—even if you think you don’t like IPAs. You get a mixed case of 12 large-format bottles* (two of each beer) for just $115 + shipping. 

We offer a flat shipping charge of just $25 for Canada Post delivery anywhere in BC! FREE delivery to Victoria area addresses.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: June 5

For the first time in the six years we’ve been holding Friday staff tastings, every single one of the beers we tried (25 in all) were cans. There was not a single new arrival in a bottle of any description. Crazy, huh? There is definitely a shift toward packaging craft beer in cans, as evidenced by this week’s new arrivals from both BC and the US. This is the future of craft beer.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: June 1

More cans of fresh craft beer are showing up! Some we keep as 4pks, some we sell as singles. They are a great way to enjoy a single serving pint of beer. Less of a commitment than a bomber, more convenient to transport and if you assemble your own mixed 4pk, we’ll give you 5% off!

Beer Mail #40: New Spring Seasonal Mix(Sold-out)

This carefully selected mixed case of 12 large-format bottles* (two of each beer) is a great deal at $104.5 + shipping.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: May 15

Wow, the sunny weather has really arrived! Lots of lighter, fruitier beers have shown up, too. We received a couple of wonderful sours in cans from Luppulo in Vancouver that really hit the spot on sunny days. You can put some together in your own custom 4pk and get 5% off at the till. This way you can try a little bit of a lot of different beers.
