Visited on Wednesday 22/04/15 around 6pm.
Located about a 15 minute walk from Coventry railway station, Beer Gonzo is a medium sized beer store awash with micro offerings from across the UK and beyond.
As you enter there are a number of ciders to the left, although I paid little attention to this and hit the beer shelves.
The rest of the far wall comprised largely Belgian offerings, whilst the middle unit was US and rest of Europe.
Some solid picks with a good selection of Mikkeller on offer, De Molen, some of the easier to find US offerings such as Flying Dog and Brookyln but also 3 or 4 Crooked Stave numbers.
The back wall and right hand side shelves carry all the UK offerings, nothing twiggy to see here, pretty much all micro and new wave stuff. Think Siren, Mad Hatter, Chorlton, Kernel, Buxton and the like as well as one of their own beers, they have a small brewery called All Seeing Eye, the rest had sold out.
There are also a couple of fridges on the left hand side should you desire immediate consumption, although the guy in the shop said that there was unlikely to be anything different in there to the shelves.
The guy behind the counter was chatty and friendly and took me round the shelves trying to find a new CDA rate but alas no.
Overall a super solid bottle shop stocked head to toe with good stuff from the UK and beyond.
They also have a link to a couple of venues in the City centre, Inspire Cafe Bar and Drapers Bar.
An online facility is also offered, which I havenít used to date, but am likely to in the future.
I would love to be able to have Beer Gonzo as my local beer store!

New (to me) Online Beer store. Better selection than most, prices average. They use UK mail as their carrier who provide a great service with text notification of delivery time. Will use again.

This is a really good beer shop. Very good range, lots of the usual suspects, but also loads of really unusual beers Iíve not seen before. The guy there was helpful and knowledgeable, and made some cracking recommendations. Itís really worth a visit. Not tried the only line store yet. Its a busy street so parked in a side street.

As far as I am aware there was no beer in Coventry before Beer Gonzo! I have been using the website as soon as it launched, but my wife has been muling beer from here for me since the shop opened. They have a wide and varied selection of the amber nectar from around the globe, but in particular they have a great bunch of stuff from the UK. They are great at advertising what is new on their facebook page and the website. Prices are a lot better than what I can get in London. Service is truly excellent. You can order and pay for beers online before collecting them at the store. In my opinion one of the best beer shops in the UK.

Used for online orders only. Selection is great with obscure UK micros besides usual US, Nordics and Belgians. Service is efficient and quick with delivery in 2 days to London. Prices are ok. Selection is ever changing and really interesting. Will use their service again.

Excellent place this, the range and choice is excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful.
Would be nicer to have a larger USA and German range but that is just being very picky. Overall this is a top place and comes HIGHLY recommended.

We visited Beer Gonzo on Sunday 9th November on our way to watch my beloved Worcester City knock Coventry City out of the FA Cup 2-1. The shop is at the bottom end of the street close to the roundabout and next to a discount store. There is plenty of street parking around and I believe I saw a car park sign nearby also. The shop is a good sized unit for a beer shop but best of all it isnít cramped and is superbly well laid out. On the RH side as you enter on wall racking are UK beers from the likes of Buxton, Burning Sky, First Chop, Bad Seed, Pressure Drop, Magic Rock etc: and a varied range with lots of rareities, prices good also. On the back wall at the rear (nr counter) A huge range of Thornbridge incl: two new beers for me as well as some small local micros. The central island seems more focused on Scandanavian and American on one side, I canít recall if it was Belgian or German on the other side of the island, not sure. On the LH wall as you enter are ciders and Belgian beers. It really is superbly laid out. The owner (I presume?) was approachable, knowlegable and chatty. I would say that this just like Cotteridge is an absolute must if you are within striking distance. I can see my journeys to and from Worcester or Derby to see parents taking in a slight detour in future, it already has happened with Cotteridge and likely to happen now with Beer Gonzo.

Excellent. The guys who run this place used to run Alexander Wines and also run Inspire in the town. Just a superb selection with knowledgeable and personable staff. My favourite beer shop.

This business used to be run from a beautiful period shop which had been an off licence for about 100 years and is now a bloody hairdressers! The locals were restless while the guys were without a shop, and although the new place doesnít have the vintage atmosphere of the old shop, itís a lot bigger and has allowed them to display a much wider range. The chaps know their stuff and are always willing to help and advise. Have tried so many new beers from there and still have only scratched the surface.
