Ambiance defaults to 3 as online.
Selection is decent enough, youíll find things here that you donít at the other UK online beer retailers, but when held up against the benchmark overall selection of BOE it falls a little short in this sense.
Prices are reasonable and they run bargain bottles of stock that presumably has been sat around for a while. Nice of them to do this (without specifially stating it) as other retailers (BOE) will happily peddle you US bottles that are out of date let alone fresh!
Service was first rate, I wanted delivery on a specific day and this was achieved without any hassle.

I ordered some beers from Beermerchants and they were safely packaged, but itís a pity the delivery took about a week, especially when many other British stores are able to deliver the next day. They did give me a free glass, though, so I shouldnít grumble too much. :) Aside from that, they have got a good range of beers, especially from America and Britain and itís worth having a look on their website.

Did a little order of 4 bottles that seemed attractive: Old Chimneyís Good King Henry Special Reserve, Lindemans Kriek Cuvťe Renť, Beer Here Malus Pater and Viven Imperial IPA. Very reasonable prices and extremely fast shipping. If I lived in the UK with limited access to craft beer, Iíd definitely use this place frequently depending on the inventory / selection. Recommended.

They use to have some real gems here, both from the over the pond, and from Europe. Good service and excellent shopping site, though info about when order is to be shipped could be more trustworthy. Excellent packing, easy to communicate with, recommended.

This place offers mostly Belgian beers. Had a decent selection and a couple of more rare beers, but nothing too exciting or rare. Of course you can get all the Trappist (except Westy). Also has a decent selection of UK beers (got a bottle of Good King Henry that I was excited to find). Also a decent selection of US beers (especially Port and Lost Abbey especially). However they seem to be selling out of most of their US beer and I donít know if/when they will replace it, so now the selection is pretty limited to Port/LA.
Prices seem to vary a bit. A number of the Belgians are as cheap or cheaper than almost anywhere else in the UK. Some of the other beers may be a little more expensive than other places, but in general the prices are pretty reasonable and normal for the UK.
I have not had a problem with them shipping a beer that is close to or past its prime. However, they do not seem to restock too often, if at all. The selection has really decreased from the first time I used it, with the exception of the Belgians which have more or less stayed the same (with a few no longer in stock but some more beers added).
I have got 2-3 boxes with them and never had a problem with beers breaking. Prompt and quick shipping. Reasonable price as well with a flat rate of £5.95 for UK mainland (£7.95 Overnight) and £7.95 for Scotland. The Scottish Highlands and non-mainland UK/Ireland get a bit steeper (around £20), and mainland Europe is also up there (approximately £20-30).
Nice shop that has a couple of kind of hard to find beers (Good King Henry). Probably check this out if you want Belgians or Port/Lost Abbey. Selection has gone down from what it was, and I donít know when that will change. Good store to get Belgians in the UK, but other than that, I would probably go with another online store.

One of the best online stores. Glad they started shipping to Europe (at very reasonable prices too). Some rare gems can usually be found. The prices are also great. Excellent service and communication. what else can you ask for ?

Wonderful online store. From them you get exceptionally rare stuff. I am very happy with my orders generally. They arrive quickly and are very well packaged.
I find the value sensational, despite the poor Euro rate. They have stocked extremely dedicated craft beer brews. Their newsletter-blog is great to read too. A very worthwhile visit. Also make sure you check often as possible. New stock is inputted frequently. Edit - 18th March. Had to update this. Lambics are now in and range is utterly awesome! Therefore a 14 for selection. If they got Struise it would be perfect 15! Hint hint.

Iíve now ordered twice from these guys and have found them to be excellent. Lots of unusual stuff thatís tough to get elsewhere in Britain (Angelís Share, Older Viscosity, Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, Drie Fonteinen) all at very reasonable prices (canít say fairer than £4.55 for a 750 of Girardin Black Label). They ship very quickly with both my orders arriving on the second working day after I ordered. The website is also well layed-out and easy to navigate.
One minor gripe is that both orders I placed were down one item because it was out of stock so they should maybe keep their website updated a little more regularly. Having said that, they did contact me both times to let me know and swiftly refunded my money for the missing items.
Fast becoming my favourite online shop.

Wonderful Service! I put in an order before heading over to Europe and when I arrived I had a box of guezes and other beers not available in the US waiting for me at a friendís house. Packaging was awesome and Phil worked to grab a few other beers that werenít on the site. By far the best mail order beer experience Iíve had.
