Visited the Clarendon store which has a small but quality range of beers. I managed to grab the last bottle of Holgateís Christmas Ale which I didnít see anywhere else - even the brewery didnít have stock. Most beers are available on the website and the guys are opening up a beer dedicated store (Slow Beer) in Hawthorne soon.

Battling it out with Purvis for the title of Melbourneís best beer shop. Purvis has a decent advantage in range (mostly due to connections with the IBS in Perth it seems) but Cloudwine has the edge in most other respects - price and web info particularly, with a slight edge in staff knowledge/helpfulness (depends on who you get at Purvis). Run by Stew41 of this site and Chrism86 is their beer guy.
Website is www.slowbeer.com.au which is constantly updated with all stock.
Blog is slowbeer.blogspot.com.

I have only ordered online, but the service is pretty good (even if my order was delayed), prices are good (except for some imports) and selection is very good for australia. Would love to make it to the physical store.

Been to both the Brighton and South Melbourne Stores.. both have an excellent range, Victorian Micros and Belgians in particular are well stocked... and I reckon the prices are the best youíll find in Melbourne. Staff are friendly, always willing to talk about beer and breweries. Pretty much my number 1 stop in town for buying beers.

Brighton shop. This is a smallish elegant shop nestled off the paradeground of the helmet-haired/ chest-wigged Brighton folk who graze to schmooze and their egregious offspring (can you tell that I donít like crossing the Nepean?). This is not your encylopedia-in-transition sort of place: the selection is modest (around 120) but focused on interesting (but not at all always pricey) things. When I walked in I was the sole customer and the bloke was on the phone to someone who was obviously both mate and supplier. He went to wind up the conversation but when I indicated I was happy to look on my own for a while carried on. Later when I had a query or two he could answer and seemed happy to chat indefinitely. Seems the sort of place you could drop in fortnightly and find something well worth your time and money.

The Brighton shop is long gone and the Sth Melbourne one is much diminished - I guess the beer focus has gone to Slowbeer. Up the back there are still a few things.

...first stop in the Burke Rd store. Was at first disappointed in the selection, but then realized what they do have is pecuiar. Great selection of aussie micros, and also belgian witís, and german hefeís. The attendant was more of a wine guy, but seemed nice enough. Prices were very reasonable, and I will return to this cellar again.

Clarendon St store has a good range. But only been to Brighton store once. Brighton closed awhile ago. Clarendon St offers a lot less now, but stilll some decent stuff.

Great selection of beer and wine. Quite a few imports and micros I havenít seen before. Staff are always happy to help or have a yarn.

Pretty smart little store in Burke Rd. Usual suspects on the Aussie micro front but had a good selection on the belgian side of things. A short cab ride from center of town, staff had good knowledge of whats on the shelf. Over all worth a look.
