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 you’ll 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 I’ve 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 I’ve 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 nerd’s 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, I’ve 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) can’t 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 it’s 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 don’t 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 you’ll 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 wasn’t 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 hadn’t 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.

Hands down must be the best bottle shop in the UK. Amazing selection of the best of the best UK beers, an unusuaully phenomenal American beer selection, and mainland European selection. Very good prices. Extremely friendly staff who are passionate about beer and eager to please you. Such a great place. Absolutely mandatory place to stop.

Cheeky visit after a conference at the ICC, the perfect antidote. An amazing selection and the chaps there are knowledgable and happy to shoot the beery breeze. Could have spent an hour in there and spent a much more than I did. If you get chance to go, do it.

Friendly and helpful staff, good selection of bottles. My only problem is their website is way out of date. Prices have increased a little on some beers and half the beers I went for were not available. They told me they were going to re do the whole site and update with new range. Will re score when this is done and I visit again.
Re visited again today. Selection is better the guys there have obviously improved the place greatly. My only problem is I am a bit of belgiophile and would like more Belgian beers. Despite this it is the best bottle shop I have visited.
