Impressive shop but not a beer destination. Tanners are first and foremost a Wine Merchants, beer is a long way down their interest lines. They will sell crates of your old Port for you and the dusty offerings come at mouthwatering prices, but the beer selection is very pedestrian to say the least. By all means walk round, and through the yard to enter the shop but you’ll find only a very small shelving area with beer and rooms full of good quality and expensive wines, ports and spirits. I like the place but have never bought a beer here!

Visited here 25th August 2012 and have to say that I was rather underwhelmed, the delicatessens further up the road into town on Wyle Cop stocked a far more interesting and varied range of beers. Certainly worth going into for some very impressive looking wines but for beers other than some of the standard range of Wye Valley, Woods etc the rest of the choice could be found and bettered in a supermarket.

Very old fine wine business in a beautiful historic part of Shrewsbury. Most of the shop is given over to wine but there is a small section of beer which is of a good standard and the staff seem to know their products. They support local producers very well.
