As our resident forensic journalist Rob detailed back last summer, the Liquor Store Income Fund (of Liquor Barn and Liquor Depot fame) owns and runs the Kitsilano Wine Cellar and 200 other liquor stores across BC.
Well, make that 201. Yattermatters Larry informed us a while ago that Point Grey Wine Cellar recently opened their doors at 3338 West Broadway (@ Blenheim). It’s a little curious that they called it the Point Grey Wine Cellar, but I guess Kitsilano Wine Cellar II would have been just as weird.
According to Larry, the store will specialize in beers and wines from around the world with the highlight being specialty beers. The staff claims some of these will be relatively unknown to local connoisseurs. On one of the images that Larry sent us, I was able to spot three different kinds of Chimay! I’ll definitely have to go check it out soon.
