There are something like six liquor and wine stores in Jasper, but they are all located downtown, which is about a fifteen or twenty minute walk from the Sawridge Inn (or a two minute drive). The closest would be the Liquor Lodge, which is on the 400 block of Patricia Street.

Thanks. We won't have a car but don't mind the walk. We like a glass of wine on an evening and the price of wine in restaurants seems very elevated compared to Europe. We normally pay about 10 dollars for a high end Rioja when dining out in Spain. Other than the high cost of alcohol menu prices seem very reasonable - before taxes and service charge at least!

The price for a bottle of wine in a restaurant is usually close to double what you can buy it for at a store, sometimes even more. A "drinkable" bottle of wine retails for $10 to $15 in Jasper. The shops in Jasper don't discount like they do in larger centres. I am in Edmonton right now and just had a walk through the Costco liquor store and they have bottles starting at $8, and many that in Jasper are in the $15 to $20 range are $10 to $15. (Yes, we will be doing a bit of stocking up before we head home!)

Last time we were in Spain, we found lots of enjoyable wines in the 4 to 7 Euro range, or about C$7 to $10. There's nothing like that here though; prices are much higher.

I guess the high price of alcohol in Canada helps to explain the state of permanent inebriation of some of the younger Canadians we encountered in Mexico last year - taking advantage whilst they had the chance. Having said that there were plenty of Brits doing their share of overindulging.

We'll just have to pay the going rate in the liquor stores and accept the fact that we are in a tourist area. We have a busy schedule so won't be drinking too much but we do like a nice tipple on an evening.

My husband and I usually hit Superstore liquore store before heading out (pack it in your trunk). We don't usually buy any alcohol in Jasper or Banff.

We will be coming from Vancouver via Kamloops on the Rocky Mountaineer so won't have a car so I think we'll have to put up with the higher prices.
