I haven’t been to the store so I am rating ’Ambiance’ based on the easy of navigation and usability of their webstore - no marks lost there. This is my favourite store when placing orders online - they have a broad domestic selection alongside rarities from overseas, when I say rarities I mean stuff that few other shops in the UK get, if any. They are extremely quick to respond to enquiries and are very helpful. I’ve had stuff to be held aside for me for weeks at a time, which is great for someone who used to work away from home on a shift pattern. Prices are fair, the domestic stuff is the cheapest around (from what I’ve seen). There is new stuff coming in on a weekly basis too. £7.50 delivery cost might be on the high side, and there’s no buy more than ’x amount’ for free delivery, the £7.50 fee is fixed for any amount of bottles you buy.

Really impressive shop. Helpful staff and fair prices. I was a bit overwhelmed by the scope of the bottles that were on the shelf; particularly of smaller regional breweries that I haven’t heard of before. They even had a good selection of craft spirits behind the bar. A must if you’re in the area.

Online purchase - site was very easy to use and had a great selection. I was able to find several beers that I had been looking for but have not been able to find in Croatia. Traded a few emails with Anthony and he was prompt and helpful with his replies. Since I don’t live in England, shipping costs are a little high and the value takes a bit of a hit but I will most likely order from here again.

Used as a online retailer, really pleased to get a sahti beer, and a Baltic porter, to ease me within site of the complete set of varieties. While not the cheapest, it offers a variety of beers I haven’t seen before , and delivery was swift. Will be using them again! Updated review, now used them several times, the selection keeps getting better, and the service is first class. Will be using them many times in the future

Visited on Wednesday 22/04/15 around 6pm. Located about a 15 minute walk from Coventry railway station, Beer Gonzo is a medium sized beer store awash with micro offerings from across the UK and beyond. As you enter there are a number of ciders to the left, although I paid little attention to this and hit the beer shelves. The rest of the far wall comprised largely Belgian offerings, whilst the middle unit was US and rest of Europe. Some solid picks with a good selection of Mikkeller on offer, De Molen, some of the easier to find US offerings such as Flying Dog and Brookyln but also 3 or 4 Crooked Stave numbers. The back wall and right hand side shelves carry all the UK offerings, nothing twiggy to see here, pretty much all micro and new wave stuff. Think Siren, Mad Hatter, Chorlton, Kernel, Buxton and the like as well as one of their own beers, they have a small brewery called All Seeing Eye, the rest had sold out. There are also a couple of fridges on the left hand side should you desire immediate consumption, although the guy in the shop said that there was unlikely to be anything different in there to the shelves. The guy behind the counter was chatty and friendly and took me round the shelves trying to find a new CDA rate but alas no. Overall a super solid bottle shop stocked head to toe with good stuff from the UK and beyond. They also have a link to a couple of venues in the City centre, Inspire Cafe Bar and Drapers Bar. An online facility is also offered, which I haven’t used to date, but am likely to in the future. I would love to be able to have Beer Gonzo as my local beer store!

New (to me) Online Beer store. Better selection than most, prices average. They use UK mail as their carrier who provide a great service with text notification of delivery time. Will use again.

This is a really good beer shop. Very good range, lots of the usual suspects, but also loads of really unusual beers I’ve not seen before. The guy there was helpful and knowledgeable, and made some cracking recommendations. It’s really worth a visit. Not tried the only line store yet. Its a busy street so parked in a side street.

As far as I am aware there was no beer in Coventry before Beer Gonzo! I have been using the website as soon as it launched, but my wife has been muling beer from here for me since the shop opened. They have a wide and varied selection of the amber nectar from around the globe, but in particular they have a great bunch of stuff from the UK. They are great at advertising what is new on their facebook page and the website. Prices are a lot better than what I can get in London. Service is truly excellent. You can order and pay for beers online before collecting them at the store. In my opinion one of the best beer shops in the UK.

Used for online orders only. Selection is great with obscure UK micros besides usual US, Nordics and Belgians. Service is efficient and quick with delivery in 2 days to London. Prices are ok. Selection is ever changing and really interesting. Will use their service again.

Excellent place this, the range and choice is excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful. Would be nicer to have a larger USA and German range but that is just being very picky. Overall this is a top place and comes HIGHLY recommended.
