Fin  (544) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | October 5, 2009
Have visited here frequently including twice in the last 3-4 months. I love this place, it has a cracking selection of beers and usually some great stuff from the likes of Struisse, Mikkeller and Nogne amongst others. There is also a very decent German beer selection and to the right hand side when you enter the beer part of the shop this area is dedicated to UK beers with Durham, Dark Star and others usually well represented. I think the only negative is that in my opinion it is a tad pricey, I accept that many of these beers are likely to have cost quite a bit of effort to get them to the UK, and I appluad this little treasure trove of a shop for geting them to a UK market, but I mention this because I’d noticed that the price has increased noticably since my last visit which was only in June. Also bit sad that what looks like a decent Perry and Cider selection look a little forgotten sat on the floor well below the Mikkellers, Amagers and Struisses of this world. Still I understand that this is likely to be owing to size limitations. Btw staff are also very friendly and helpful, two of which reside on this site I understand.

Small beer (and wine) store. Decent selection. It’s located midway between Cambridge Blue and Live & Let Live. OK service.

Located right on Mill Road, Bacchanalia is quite easy to find. The selection features options from the states, Belgium, and Germany, along with a few local brews. The belgian stuff had a few nice options, and I was all too happy to pick up a few interesting sours. The staff was helpful, prices were reasonable. Worth a stop, though don’t expect to find anything too crazy.

Bacchanalia is a great bottle located on Mill street away from the main tourist hub of Cambridge. It is relatively small inside, but packs a punch! They boast a very good selection of UK, German, Belgian and US beers amongst others. Nice local options and quite a few beers that don’t make it to London. The guy working there was friendly and rather knowledgeable. Prices seemed rather good to a pseudo-Londoner. A Cambridge must-visit.

OK beer shop, a bit biased in favour of Belgian and some very similar German types. Nice load of local BCA’s.

Drove past this beer shop while looking for our hotel: couldn’t find the hotel so returned to here. While the owner opened up ‘Goggle’ for me my eyes scanned the shelves for likely beers. Three main collections: British; mainly local brews. German; plenty of Octoberfests and rarer brews (to me anyway). Belgian; mostly well known stuff (I’m a regular Belgium visitor). Bought three new German bottles and found my hotel, the guy was helpful; his beer selection fine; glad I found him before the hotel!

A tiny wine and beer merchant, about a 5-10 minute walk away from the centre. However, packed with a superb selection of English and other beers. Good wine, whisky and cider selection too. Best of all, however, is that they will almost always have between 2 and 5 barrels of real ale stilled and available for sale in multiples of 2 pints. Knowledgable staff, pleased to make suggestions. I may have underestimated the number of bottles they have, it might even be 300.

Really solid bottle shop that helped me fill out the suitcase. Even picked up a German Rauchbier that I never would have seen in Belgium, plus some bottles from Pitfield. Several cask ales for take away. Very cool.

This is a small shop which means the selection is not quite as extensive as other places. However rather than your normal swill I only saw row after row of excellent regional and international bottles on display. The fact that the owner was willing to let me browse ten minutes before close only improves things.

I don’t know which ones are local but on the shelves I saw a number of nice choices from Crouch Vale, Thornbridge Hall, and others. The Belgian selection included a couple of lambics at good prices. The prices were not too bad overall. Also if you are into whiskey there were a few eye catching bottles near the front of the store.

Give this place a look if you stop in Cambridge. In the worst case scenario you’ll be out five minutes on the way to the pubs.
