This place has the best selection of any shop iíve been in in the UK. Itís a bit of a drive for me, but always worth the trip. The staff is very knowledgeable about everything on the shelves, and are always happy to help. I donít know how he does it, but it seems like the guy has drank everything in the shop and has a photographic memory of each individual experience. A good variety of all things Belgian, German and British, and I was happy to see some American stuff to! I was even suprised by seeing them armed with Tactical Nuclear Penguins on my last trip! An excellent little shop, I never walk away unsatisfied.

I happened to walk past and decided to take a look. Just a little peak without buying anything. Then I bought a Lou Pepe Framboise and a Blaugies for 23£, which seems like a pretty fair deal. They have a lot of De Molen, some Mikkeller, various Americans like Stone and Moylans, some Germans and Belgians. The local selection seemed a bit limited, but I wasnít looking carefully. There was a guy working there, and based on eavesdropping I would guess that he knows beers and some other stuff too.

Good bottleshop in Cambridge. Not a huge shop but a very good beer selection, plenty of Euro stuff available. Prices on the higher side, especially considering itís not in London.

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 donít 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.

Itís more wine shop tha beer shop, but this doesnít matter. Beer selection is excellent, they have some German, Dutch (De Molen), Belgian, US beers. And of course local staff. I bought there some Founders, Rogue, Stone and Cambridge Moonshine beers. Knowledgeable staff, not far from pubs, where you are most likely heading.

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

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 donít 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 youíll be out five minutes on the way to the pubs.

Great little place. Little hole in the wall shop, but that made it neat. The have a fantastic selection, especially for its size. The staff was awesome and very helpful. Had really reasonable prices on the Italian and American beers.

Visited the Victoria Road shop. Good selection of beers and wines, although, as the guy in the shop admitted, it had been hit hard by the beer festival crowd! Knowledgeable and friendly, a bit pricy, but as expected for the specialist stock.
