Large, awesome and rare selection of the best artisan beers, from UK, Europe and USA. Seasonal and staple choices always available. An absolute must for real beer sourced by real beer aficionados.

Just what southampton needs- a place with a decent wide variety of local and foreign beers. Friendly and clearly knowledgable staff, judging by the wall of beer-related literature behind the counter! The owners are also quite clearly valued members of the beer community. My only wish is that they had some more homebrews from the community perhaps, but thatís insignificant.

Brilliant little shop in Southampton. I am stuck in Portsmouth on business and this place is an oasis. In the US I would probably knock this place on selection, but if I compare to what people say is best in the UK, Kris Wines, Bitter Virtue has them topped. Super friendly and helpful staff. I honestly have no basis of comparison on value.

Excellent beer shop tucked away in a residential area. If youíre not looking for it youíre not going to find it! Brilliant selection, and you cannot fault the service or the value. No trip to the South Coast is complete without it. Treat yourself!

Bitter Virtue is celebrating its 18th year serving the southwest beer community, so the very nice lady behind the till knows quite a bit about the local and regional beer scene, as well as the bottles on offer. And there are a lot of bottles. Not only were the shelves bursting at the seams, but there were boxes upon boxes in the middle of the store, courtesy of a fresh delivery yesterday. When I requested advice on black IPAs and non-Belgian sours, the lady came round and pointed out more than a dozen examples. And prices are reasonable. This is everything you could ask for in a beer shop.

Visited on 09/09/12.
Great place to shop for beer.
Good selection of UK microís, Belgian, German, Scandoís and some US stuff that you donít see in too many places.
Dark Star Kiwi was available for take out from the barrel on our visit.
The owners were brilliant and we chatted with them for the whole half hour we were there. Regulars popped in and had a chat with us as well.
We spent quite a bit of £££ between us and we were both given a nice extra for our custom - great touch! And to top it off the lady owner then gave us a lift to the Guide Dog pub, not far away but our bags were pretty damn heavy.
Brilliant place - will be back !!!

A great little beer shop this one with a selection of ales from all over the UK. Specialises in Belgian Ales with new beers regularly available. Also stocks German and other European beers and a small selection of ciders and american craft beers. In addition it has 1-2 beers available on tap for very reasonable prices, available for takeaway in plastic bottles. Ann and Chris are very helpful in recommending beers to your favourite styles or similar to others you have tried. A selection of glassware and giftpacks are also available.

An excellent shop with a good selection of beers from around the world with Belgium and the UK being particularly well represented. They also sell beer glasses and some beer books.
The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to give advice when necessary.
They have up to two British cask beers on stillage available to take away.
An excellent shop.
