I have experience only with their web page. In fact this is not webshop, you can choose from a list and write to Andrew and he sends you box. Anyway, nice selection of British, American and other beers. Communication is smooth, packaging is perfect, box would survive moon landing. prices are reasonable. I like this "web shop"

Great selection of harder to find UK beers, though prices always a little higher than elsewhere. Great help in sending my order to parents address and discount given due to order size. Good online presence too.

Great place. What a selection! I think I saw about 200 different beers in the tiniest space imaginable. The dude working there was great, he chatted to us the whole time and we discussed what we liked, and he discussed what he had. We ended up only buying 2 mixed 4-packs, as we knew we had to drink them for breakfast on coming days. But my goodness, what a breakfast some of them were. To visit Canterbury and not visit here is a sin before malt and before hop.

Really liked this place, essentially a stall in a great food market surrounded by beer enthusiasts. Selection limited by the space they had but tried some beers and walked away with a wooden crate of different ales to taste. Will be back for the ones that I liked!

Itís a very small shop but inside a very nice market. You can choose your beer and drink it on premises with fresh local farmfood.

A nice little corner of an artisanal food shop in Canterbury. A great selection of some tough to find bottles from small and distinguished breweries in Europe and North America. If youíre ever in the area, a must visit!

I was swinging by to pick up some beers as I was driving across the channel anyway and Canterbury isnít too far away from Dover. I placed a collective order with a couple of friends from Belgium, through e-mail. Everything was ready and awaiting us. As there was some confusion with which bottles they did or didnít have, I gave my printed list to the clergy who checked everything off as me and my friends had lunch in the restaurant in the same building. Rating for the food is btw actually for the Good Shed restaurant, but since they seem to be cooperating, it seemed stupid to add another entry. The food was delicious by the way. Afterwards the clergy and me went through the whole list again, checking off every bottle. It was quite a bit of work, but then again, they were selling a lot of beers at once. ;-) An amazing selection, one of which we in Belgium are sometimes jealous, at least the people who like some American imports. Only reason I subtracted 2 points is because of the non availability of about 10% of the stuff I ordered, especially because I waited for their updated list only 5 days before ordering and had to gather orders from a couple of friends. Despite that, some bottles were sold out anyway. Friendly staff, just in general a good place. Maybe a bit expensive, yes. But then again, England in general is pretty expensive, so there you go. Will visit again next time I cross the channel with the car.

Located in a former goods-shed close to the Canterbury railway-station, this īmarket-stall ī offers an almost incredible selection of english quality beers - in aitumn 2011 for example 21 different "Kernels". Very friendly and knowledgeable service. Worth a journey, one of the best beers shops in the U.K.Ö
