Placed a complicated two-person, two-country order that was filled quickly and efficiently with a lot of personal involvement and advice from The Man Himself. As others have commented, the site is only in German, which is very strange, since the shop cannot possibly be aimed at the German market. I know of only four (well, maybe five) Germans who would dare buck tradition and risk ostracism to try beers from outside their hometowns, although Sebastian and others are certainly working hard to change that. Certainly this place has the largest selection of beers in the country. Prices are a bit high, which is understandable given that the German foreign beer market must be about the size of North Korea’s. Beers arrived in Belgium promptly, wrapped within an inch of their lives, so only nuclear warfare could have done them any harm, and then only if their aim was good. This place gives me hope for the future of the beer scene in Germany.
A great beer shop. Nice selection of beers from all over thee world in great prices. Recommended

I placed an order recently. The website could use a bit of work, like basic english translation or more beer categories, per country for example or price range. Other than that is easy to navigate. Shipping costs are calculated after the order has been placed and you’re getting the total amount in a email (very) soon afterwards. From my communication with them, I think you can remove bottles if you think shipping costs are too high or just cancel your order too. As soon as you’’re happy with the order you get another email with the invoice and after you transfer the money the box is shipped. Speaking of that, delivery was very fast but of course I live on a country next to them. The box was full of bubble rap and other protective measures, would be really surprised if anything ever broke. Selection is not stnandard and they bring some good beers quite often, so you have to keep an eye on them :) Good prices I would say, Mikkeller was sold cheaper than their own webshop. Many boxes to come from those guys.
Swift transaction although either I’m dumb or they don’t have an English website. Anyways, Google translate did the trick and the owner was responsive to my emails in English. Payment process is slightly more laborious than usual as well and website cannot calculate shipping costs automatically. This said, these are all quite minor issues that could easily get solved I think. What matters the most is that selection of US beers is outstanding for European standards. Some other versions gems too and a constantly varying range. Super quick shipping with tracker and bomb proof packing. Very satisfied all in all and will likely shop again for some special bottles.
Great webshop for hard to find beer from USA, Belgium, northern Europa, etc. Perfect customer service, friendly and helpful, fast shipping and great packaging. Negative points are the pretty high shipping rates compared to other webshops and the not very user friendly webpage: no country or brewer search, or just a complete list of all beers, only keyword and beer style search - the latter sometimes doesn’t display all beers available! But I will definitely order again, as there probably isn’t another webshop in central Europe which offers such a regularly rotating range of US craft beer!
Have ordered beers from their online bottleshop. Very good customer service. I was notified that I could add a few beers more for more or less the same shipping cost. Good selection and fairly good prices. The website is in German and that is the only bad thing with it.
