Iím surprised this place isnít rated higher. The selection is awesome with decent prices. Acland are known in Melbourne as the place that gets beer that no one else does, I saw some Dogfish Head and even Lost Abbey which is surprising. The lady behind the counter was nice and knew her beer. Unfortunately, I couldnít buy much but Ill go there next time Iím in Melbourne for sure.

Equal best range in Melbourne along with Purvis. Slightly cheaper for some beers. Best place to come for Sierra Nevada beers.

Seems to have changed a bit recently. Used to focus range alot on euro beers, now they have some great US stuff, however you need to be careful as an ipa i got was 1 year old! Donít really have much in the way of local craft, which is a bit disappointing. Service is ok, friendly but dont seem to know a whole lot about the range. Pricing isnít too bad but a little high. Wouldnít go out of my to shop there but a pleasant surprise if in the area.

hawthorne00  (42) Melbourne, Australia | December 16, 2009| Updated June 29, 2013
This used to be a dump with a largish selection of unfamiliar beers that had been sitting there for who knows how long. Things have improved. Itís encouraging although still slightly annoying when a place has clearly just run out of several interesting beers - to me it means that some effort is being made to avoid languishing stock. I didnít count, but they certainly have at least 300 beers. The selection of Australian micros is weaker than Belgian and Brits. Advice is available, but they donít hover or badger. Any regular patrons might add some information to the "Available at this location" list - it would be nice to walk in with a few ideas about obscure Belgians rather than entirely trust the staff for recommendations.

Melbourneís maverick beer place. They seem to arrange their own imports and do pretty well at it, although sometimes dates are worth checking. Engaging staff.

A wall of beer there sure is a lot, and a large amount of stock that I havenít seen elsewhere. As others have mentioned a huge range of Belgians and other Euro beers and a few Aussie micros though I didnít see any hard to find brews. Iíd definitly stock up here if I lived in the area. A decent beer store no doubt.
