Cooper Street is a tight little place downtown that has a knowledgeable beer manager. Everything comes through here, beer and from what I understand everything, for a while. First place to go, if you can get here at the Southern point of downtown. Inventory on the lcbo.ca site is not very reliable, but ratehr an indicator. This and the Summerhill LCBO are your first places to go if a beer makes the LCBO system. You must be agile to reach and dive for stuff on the shelf, like shopping in a wholesale store.

This is one of the biggest LCBOs in Toronto. It might be the biggest.
The beer section is located in a corner of the store and consists of a large alcove of fridges and two rows of non-refrigerated beer. The selection is the best in the LCBO system because its located across the street from the main LCBO distribution center. All the good year round LCBO beers are here, Scotch Irish IPA, Anchor Liberty, Aventinus, Aecht Schenkerla Rauchbier, Czechvar, Brooklyn lager etc. etc. as well as the entire lineups of each LCBO seasonal release. The Harviestoun Old Engine Oil was especially enjoyed from this winter's release.
Prices are reasonable. On the cheap end you can get Czechvar for 2.50 CAD and Aventinus for 3.00 CAD. The seasonals are more expensive with Fuller's 07 Vintage Ale at 6.95 and St Ambroise Vintage Ales at 4.95 a bottle. The best beer available in Ontario, Scotch Irish IPA is always in stock and runs you 12.95 a six pack.
The services is pretty much non existent as the huge store is understaffed with non cashier personel. The people who you do find are generally ignorant of beer, with the exception of two or three of the beer section guys, who are very knowledgable and friendly.
This or the Summerhill LCBO is the best place in Ontario to get take home beer.

Popped in here while grabbing my Central City order from the Freeland Street warehouse. It's no doubt the largest LCBO I've ever seen, with countless aisles of wine and spirits, a tasting center, and a sizable beer section in the back of the store. Lots of refrigerated craft beer and decent representation of local micros. There's several beers you can purchase here that are not available at most locations in the province. Service seems friendly enough as one of the employees helped me find the bathroom and pointed me toward the beer cooler. None of the LCBOs rival U.S. outlets, but this store and the Summerhill location are as good as it gets in Ontario.

Best selection in Toronto, although Summerhill is a close second. Definitely better service than most of the LCBOs -- there's actually an older gentleman at this place who seems to be genuinely interested in beer and know something about what's there and what's coming in.
You can get most Ontario microbrews here (with some notable exceptions), as well as a decent selection of Belgian and UK imports. A lot of Eastern European pilsners and lagers as well, although that's typical for Toronto. Whenever the LCBO has a seasonal release, this place seems to get the most stock of the new stuff.
Prices are typical LCBO -- standard for Ontario beers, jacked up a bit for imports.
My preferred beer store in Toronto.

Second best LCBO for beer behind Summerhill, although I prefer Cooper Street for new release beers, they always seem to have more in stock. Same for the Christmas release packages, Cooper Street is the place to hit. Big section in the back corner, most of it refrigerated, for beer. Lots of macro's, imports, and micro's. Fair selection of local micro's that are difficult to find. Definate stop for anyone visiting if you can't find what you're looking for at Summerhill, Cooper St. will probably have it. Especially visit here around Christmas.
