How good are they at getting in some pretty small time obscure stuff?

There's this local beer I had in San Diego called Alesmith Nautical Nut Brown that completely blew me away, I need to get my hands on more haha.

If you're patient enough, they'll source it out to the best of their abilities. They search across the country through distributors and other provincial liquor branches to see if the product is available.

You should try to contact the brewer first to see if there are any distributors in Canada before contacting BC Liquor.

I looked on their website, they only have distribution in California which doesn't even include SF Bay Area. Really small lol.

So BC Liquor Store will only go through Canadian distributors? I tried Firefly on Cambie yesterday and it seems they have that same limitation.

I'm not entirely sure. Only way is to try and find out.
