Calgary Liquor Stores

Our Calgary liquor stores, like those in most other cities, are easy to find. Just stroll down to the nearest intersection and

more than likely you'll find one there. Mytelus.com lists well over 300 businesses in Calgary selling beer, wine and spirits, and a single map of them all would appear too cluttered. But unlike many cities outside of Alberta, Calgary has specialized wine stores and beer stores.

Calgary wine stores are unique. Rightly or wrongly, I attribute their identity to Ralph Klien's privatization some years back.

Usually you'd just expect to go down to your local liquor store and buy a bottle of wine for that special meal. Maybe you have something in mind, or maybe it's just luck what you choose. But Calgary wine stores are staffed with people who actually know about wine. The staff can help you choose the right bottle to go with your meal, which can make all the difference.

If it's an extra special occasion that you're planning, I'd recommend calling into your nearest speciality wine store in advance so that if the bottle of wine you're looking for isn't in stock, the store staff can order it for you, or come up with a good alternative. That's not a service you normally find in most city wine stores.

The Willow Park Wine store on 10801 Bonaventure Drive SE, Calgary is rarely a disappointment. It has a great selection of wines and the staff are helpful if you're looking for something different but not quite sure what.

And now for something completely different

If your drink tastes are more orientated to beers than wines, check out this web address beeradvocate.com/beerfly/city/54.

Just moved to Calgary and are looking for a great beer store? Maybe you're an old timer wanting to

try some new beer to accompany your beer nuts instead. This website should point you in the right direction of a decent place as it contains up-to-date information on a selection of places, such as breweries, bars and beer stores.

For those who don't like to be seen browsing in Calgary liquor stores but still need to get a bottle of wine for that special occasion, then some calgary liquor stores have become available online. Check out www.cellarwinestore.com and browse to your hearts content from the comfort of your own home.

Even if you're not after a bottle of wine or beer but are racking your brain trying to think of a great party planning idea, Calgary liquor stores can help you, as long as you're 18 or over that is.

Have you thought about booking your own event featuring wine, spirit or beer tasting? It's a great evening out and sure to be one party that you and your friends won't forget in a hurry.

Finally, remember that however tempting that bottle of liquor is that you've just bought from one of your local Calgary liquor stores, you shouldn't drink and drive. The same applies if you're at the controls of of a watercraft, ATV or snowmobile. So be sensible.

Sermon over...Have fun!
