Incredible selection of beers - although list on website not up to date due to constantly changing selection. The owners are very knowledgable and will recommend beers. If you buy any lambic they are sure to comment on this. Offers a bottle deposit on most of the belgian beers - It keeps me coming back for more.

A nice shop tucked in a quiet corner of Southampton. The selection’s pretty strong. You’ll find plenty of stuff from Britain and Belgium, with a modest selection of stuff from the US. They seem to enforce a 1-bottle limit on some of the rarer beers. Prices were fine. The service was initially pretty apathetic, but rapidly improved when it became clear that I was spending some solid coin.

What a great shop! Like a candy store for adults. Walls full of shelves filled with bottles of beer. Mostly beers from across England, though a number from Europe (Belgium in particular).

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

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 you’re in Southampton, and you’re a beer geek, you’ll like the place, and find it does the job.The shop’s website offers an up to date list that is worth studying. If you’re 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 you’re not sure what you like, so there is value in paying a visit. I think it’s 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.
