The second best beer selection in the Blue Mountains after the wonderful Down Under Cellars, Leura. I’ve delayed adding this upmarket deli/wine store/beer store for two years until their beer selection got up to scratch - they’re there now. Nothing like the range in Leura but a solid array of regional beers and an improving selection of international beers. This place specialises in produce of the central west and it’s a pity that the beers/ciders are not yet on par with the wines. The prices are towards the upper end of the scale, perhaps due to the focus on tourists.

We came here on 18.2.2015 and would have not expected such an excellent bottle shop in the middle of a national park close to the Blue Mountains. They have wine, ciders, whiskey’s and 3 fridges full of good beer in an old red brick building. Some US microbrews as Sierra Nevada and Rogues, New Zealand beers and a good assortment of Australian craft beers. We purchased two IPA’s from Riverside Brewing. The service is extremely friendly, they gave us for free beer coolers and a bottle opener for a purchase of 14 A$!!! The Riverside beer was quite hoppy and strong compared to the normal Australian Pale Ales (> 7%).
