This is something of a gem of a shop (which sets it apart from neighbouring establishments - itís not in the nicest of areas tbh). But alas for my first visit, last week, it was Krisí day off and his Dad was looking after the place so I wasnít able to experience what other reviewers have described (ie Krisí helpfulness and welcome). But I was able to find myself a good selection of local beers, at reasonable prices, selected from their very good range (with great international selection too). I will have to go back when Iím in the area with a car as could have bought a lot more, but only had my backpack...

I visited Kris Wines on 25 July 2016. The walk from Kentish Towm station took me around 10 minutes. I found the shop really exciting. The amazing selection of beers made me happy, and I was particularly happy to find three different types of my beloved Belgian Delirium Tremens (£3.50/bottle). Kris was polite and welcoming.

Outstanding selection, with the owner sourcing rare and odd beers. Ask for some advice! Iíve found some absolute gems in here!

This is the place that got me into beer. Seriously, this place is great. Before all the craft beer bottle shops had opened up around London, it was just Kris and his insane supply. Itís like going to a library of beer. I bought my first Imperial Brown Stout from the Kernel Brewery here. I canít really say any more.

sir__v  (243) Lille, France | September 10, 2015| Updated October 14, 2015
Visited the 9th September 2015 - Good small place near to Camden and Kentish town. Good store really clear and with a good beer selection. Domination of UK beer but there are also beers from Europe and also from US and thatís really find. Good price for London and also for the selection. Not so excessive when you see some rareties... The owner is friendly and welcoming. I need to go back with more time to spend there. Very good beer shop, I recommend it.

Visited to find some treasure... Price are very competitive, certainly the best price in London. Very friendly as usual. I was happy to find what Iím looking for! Thanks! And see you soon!

Very compact and bijou, but stuffed ful of an excellent assortment. Prices seemed very reasonable, and nice to have so many local beers in one place.

Fantastic place. What can I add that others havenít said? Kris is incredibly helpful as iv always gone at a time when Iím the only person there. Yes itís a small shop but the beers are packed in! He sells wine too so my sister was happy. Anyway, I think the prices are incredibly reasonable. I always drive so I can fill up my car. Parking directly outside the front but it can be tricky to get a space.

Apart from the lack of ideal location, I really canít find a complaint about this place. The owner, Kris, is incredibly friendly and helpful. He was kind enough to give me a small discount when I purchased over £150 of beer. The type of service only available in small businesses! Krisís passions for beers shows in the selection, as he puts everything in there. Good selection of European beers (e.g. Mikkeller, De Molen, Struise, UK brewers). An unbelievable selection of American beers - Pipeworks, Prairie Artisanal, Stone, Alesmith, etc. He keeps the shop simple, small, with no music just to focus on the beer.

Ambiance: Well, no music or strippers or anything, just a regular shop with beers. Small and filled from floor to ceiling and can feel a bit cramped if youíre not the only person in the store. The street outside seems interesting with people wasted out of their minds in the afternoon.
Service: Was offered assistance as I stepped through the door, and Kris knows his beers and gives good recommendations. I have only met the dreaded ďother guyĒ once. He fetched me a box to stand on so I could reach the top shelf, so he is good for something.
Selection: Worth to travel for. Great selection of Belgian, German, American and Danish beers along with an extensive selection of locals. No bargains, but the prices are fair and if you put some money down you sometimes get an extra bottle thrown in for free. Found some stuff that has passed on the date, so bring your reading glasses.
All in all the best bottle shop Iíve visited in London so far, but unfortunately a bit out of the way for me.
