An absolutely outstanding bottle shop. There are only a handful of places in the UK with selection like this place has. And the value - oh, the value! Itís fantastic. I left here with literally all I could carry. The selection includes local breweries, lots of London breweries, nice range of US micros, tons of Belgian, Scandinavian. The staff is very friendly and accomm0dating. This place is an definite must-visit if you are near Birmingham. Visited during the RateBeer Black Country Bash.

A really superb shop in the unlikeliest of places Ė in fact if you were just passing youíd hardly notice it but it has perhaps the best selection of bottled beers Iíve seen anywhere in the country. We visited as part of the Ratebeer Black Country Bus Bash and couldnít have been made to feel more welcome. The owners had arranged a small tasting for us in the back room and also provided some delicious food (the homemade onion bhajis were my favourite). Excellent all round, including the very competitive prices.

Visited on the RB Black country bash - 6th July í13.
What a cracking shop.
Great range from all over the UK, plenty of new micros and hop profferers such as Partizan and Kernel. Mikkeller and De Molen pretty much had their own shelves!
Good US selection, ditto Belgian.
Friendly guys - big thanks to Jaz & Kal who hosted a tasting for us in the back room then waved us off.
Definately worth the bus ride from the city centre.
As well as finding London beers you canít ordinarily find in London, they were also cheaper in most cases!

Great bottleshop! Rows of good beers at very good prices and great friendly service. Also very nice to be able to move around in this place, not as cramped as some places. Selection is great but keep an eye on the dates if you are worried by that sort of thing, at least one beer was well beyond itís BBE. Great shop though!

By far the best beer shop Iíve been to in the UK. Only rivalled by some of the craft beer specialists in Washington State.

Visited during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. Wow, what a gem of a place. Cotteridge is a pretty unassuming-looking bottle shop on the outskirts of Birmingham. Inside youíll find a treasure trove of quality beer. Plenty of UK micros available alongside a well-curated selection of international breweries. This place has probably the largest selection of De Molen beers Iíve seen outside of Bodegraven. Quality London breweries like Partizan, The Kernel, and Beavertown were well-represented. Gems like Armand & Tommy were on sale for 12 quid. The service was kind, accomodating. Prices for the beer was great, in many cases lower than what Iíve paid directly from the brewery. Overall, a world class bottle shop. This place goes toe-to-toe with Kris Wines for best bottle shop in the UK.

It was going to be hard to top the visit to Stirchley Wines just around the corner but somehow they did it. The English beer aisle goes on and on including stuff from almost every region - Buxton, The Kernel, Partizan, Arbor, and more. The selection of De Molen and Mikkeller alone would be enough to put this place on any beer nerdís radar. The icing on the cake was discovering a stash of 3F Armand for the fairly reasonable price of £35. That resulted in a few other bottles appearing which I might have seriously considered if I did not have to fly. You have no excuse to pass this place by when in Birmingham.

Always a great selection, Iíve had some stunners, the Lads are always very helpful and have pointed me in the direction of some classics (a quick note, the other half pops in when birthdays, christmas etc are due and they help her out with gifts for me, Tactical Nuclear Penguin, Buxton Stouts and more) canít fault them and their recent run down to the East End has given me the chance to try Pressure Drop, Five Point, Crate as well as the usual Kernal, Partizan, Brodies etc, the only drawback is that itís only about a mile and a half away from me (very conve and I will be bankrupt eventually

We (me, Loz, Barry & Lynn) visited here yesterday Sunday 28th April 2013 on way back from a weekend at my mums in Worcester. I have to say that this is probably the best bottle shop that I have been to in the UK. I donít doubt that the Beers of Europe has a wider and greater selection but for sheer quality and huge choice and fair prices then this wins out for me. Fairly easy to find, we accessed it from the M42, straight up the main A441 heading into Birmingham and when you get into Cotteridge youíll see it on the left eventually, parking might be an issue but there is a pub car park opposite that you could probably sneak into, the road outside has a single yellow line and parking on a Sunday wasnít an issue but a weekday or Saturday might be a bit more difficult, though I guess public transport up and down this road would also be very good as I guess you are just 3-4 miles from the centre of town. Beer wise, where do you start? Huge ranges of the following breweries, Brodies, Mikkeller, De Molen, Wild, Thornbridge, Buxton, Evil Twin, Kernel, Partizan, Tiny Rebel etc, etc andf then there were loads of newcomers many that I had never had or hadnít had that often, Rebel (Cornwall?), Weird Beer and others that I forget. The shop is essentially a large oblong laid out with one central island on one side it is wine on the other is all UK beers, to the left of this central island (looking with you back to the counter) all down that left hand side is Foreign beers starting with US beers, moving onto Danish before then Belgian, Dutch, French and others. Some of the more expensive American beers along with some rare Brewdog and the odd Belgian offering are near the counter. The brothers who run this shop Cal and Jaz (I think they were called) were really friendly and we chatted for some time about who, how and where they get beers from. I was hugely impressed with this place and the friendliness and helpfulness of the brothers, I can see this becoming a regular stop off both going to or returning from my mums.
