Operating as “Hastings Liquor Store”, there has been an ongoing effort to become better and better at serving our ever-evolving community. To that end, and in the spirit of recommitting to continual improvement, we decided a name change was in order: High Point Beer Wine Spirits!
Why High Point?
High Point on Hastings
The neighbourhood where we are located, specifically the block on which High Point resides, is indeed the highest point of Hastings Street in Vancouver. Named in 1885 after Royal Navy Rear-Admiral George Fowler Hastings, Hastings is the most important east-west connector in the city; a street filled with diversity, from the busy office towers downtown through the rough-and-tumble DTES to the base of Burnaby Mountain. At High Point we celebrate this diversity – you will find it in our customer base, product offerings and staff alike.
High Point of the Day – Raise Your Glass
For us, whether it’s a gathering of friends, a celebration or simply the end of a long workday, it is incomplete without the opportunity to raise our glass with our “cheers” of choice. This may mean an ice-cold beer on a hot day, a full-bodied red wine with a hearty meal or a dram of whisky as a nightcap. Sharing food and drink with loved ones is something to cherish and something that we never grow weary of. It is literally the high point of our day.
High Point Scores
At our store we are serious about sharing unbiased, real-world tasting notes and scores for the beer, wine and spirits we sell. Every day we work at researching, consulting, tasting, evaluating and scoring in order to better inform our customers choices and enable them to be confident in their choices. High Point refers to just that: a high-scoring beer, wine or spirit; those special bottles that truly represent a particular style, where you can taste the craft and passion behind its creation. Those are the bottles we seek out to share with our customers.
