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.

Pleasant and tidy specialist beer shop tucked away in residential area. Fairly typical range of beers and prices for such a shop - a good focus on local beers, and a selection of beers from Belgian and America. There is an inclination toward some buzz names such as: Kernal, Struise, Mikkeller, De Molen, Thornbridge, Stone, etc, and pretty much all the local breweries, so there should be something to satisfy most beer geeks. If youíre in Southampton, and youíre a beer geek, youíll like the place, and find it does the job.The shopís website offers an up to date list that is worth studying. If youíre a big beer buyer and know what you like you may find it worthwhile to check prices against online suppliers such as BeersOfEurope and BeerRitz before making a visit, as there can be a wide difference on some bottles; however, there are plenty of beers in Bitter Virtue that are not available in those stores, and there is the benefit of getting personal advice if youíre not sure what you like, so there is value in paying a visit. I think itís a place I may be popping into from time to time. And I will certainly take along any beer friends who come to stay or visit.

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!

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.

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.

A pretty good selection for a backstreet corner shop! Well worth seeking out.
