Clean shop. Lots of bottled Bitters and a nice Bloch of Belgians. They have Brewdog and Flying a Dog too, but this isn’t quite a craft location yet. Excellent prices - especially for Oakham Geen Devil. The welcome was rudimentary, but it’s a great location for beer full stop and especially good in this area. They also have 4 hand pumps dispensing real ale. Very good.

Nice to find real ale in an off license! Good selection of English ales, particularly those brewed locally. Worth a visit.

Found an excuse to visit. Has a small selection of European and American, but a larger range of UK. 4 pumps on the go when I was there, managed to buy myself a present of Gouden Carolus box set of glass and 4 different beers so totally happy with that - only £15. Sometimes has Jaipur on tap. Staff member liked crap lager "I don’t like ales" but was helpful and friendly nontheless. It was mid-march, but they still had about 8 different xmas beers in stock. Not sure how quickly I’ll go back, but he says they’re going to extend their range by 60% soon.

Couldn’t resisit a look in when staying in a hotel 5 minutes away. Pleasant little shop, 4 handpumps in use, with 2 more spare. Draught real cider available (Rich’s Medium on my visit). Was hoping for more Belgian beers, going by the GBG’s description, but only a small number of well known ones on sale., eg Chimay, Westmalle. Still, good for the area and worth a look in. Plenty of draught containers, in a number of sizes available.

"The real ale off-licence" has been featured in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide for the last 20 years. A choice of beers are available on tap to take home in plastic containers; there’s also a reasonable range of bottles, mainly English with some more common Belgian and German. Located in a typical row of suburban shops. Well worth a visit if in the Solihull area.
