Small beer (and wine/spirits) shop but packs in a big selection. Dedicated shelves for Belgian, German, UK, London beers, and other areas for Dutch, US, Spain, Scandinavia etc. Belgian selection had lots of stalwarts but also some new beers from the likes of Alvinne and de Struise and others. Good seleciton of German beers from Alt, Berlinerweisse, Doppelbock to Hefeweizen. Omnipollo, Kaapse, De Molen, To Ol, Westbrook, Flying Dog, etc. are all well represented, though I was surprised to see no Italian craft beer on this visit (but selection changes regularly so that will probably not be the case next time). Large bottles (750ml) also available from The Bruery, Rogue, Alesmith etc.
330ml bottles seem to start from around £2.99 and upwards - which seems a little pricey but the trade-off is the selection in one place. One of the best bottle ranges in London.

Poped in while drivning North to Stansted for a quick one (family was waiting in the car). A bit back and forth but my wife guided me well (many thx), probably easier to go with the Tube and walk the last distance. Presented me a the desk - and what I could understand from the latest reviews I was lucky,- Kris was on duty! - My advice there either give a ring or mail in advance an book a time were there is less customers (likely) and Kris there or bring your IPhone or similar to check RB for advice. Great selection of London beers (no Brodies, though) English, American, Belgian, and a few sour - mostly big bottles and medium standard high prices for the sours. Prices were good for the local... Kris was very helpful in helping me out with the last bottles - flying with Ryan;). He also poped in a Saison that was cold as on the way beer for free - Worldclass! When you are going there: bring a big backpack, a loaded Visa and allow you at least one hour to go through the selection. It looks wee butís packed with gems. Many thx Kris!

A very small shop in a less than desirable location. Nevertheless, Kris typically has a huge selection of European and American beers at great prices for London. Kris knows his stuff and is helpful but if heís not there, the other guy doesnít know anything about beer. It can feel very cramped with just a couple customers inside. Another downside is that the neighborhood and some of the clientele are a bit ghetto. Iíve been inside while fights have almost broken out right inside the doorway.

Small store with a good amount of beer, but also wine and spirits. The staff (the owner?) was extremely friendly and helpful, but I was a little disappointed when I noticed that the Partizan Mild I bought on his advice was a couple months old. [UPDATE: I just received a beermail from Kris who, after seing my review, apologized and offered me a refund or to replace my bottle. Classy and professionnal, thatís good service in my opinion.] Selection is interesting, but not that much better than other store I visited in Greater London area (like Drink of Fulham and Beer Boutique). Price are a tad high, but not higher than other stores in Greater London area. Definitely a nice place to have in the neighbourhood. Based on other comments, it seems like the place to go for limited releases, but it seems they werenít many left when I went. Still a very nice beer store.

Very small store, big selection, minor in service. I took my time in here, and searched the shelves for the better part of a halfhour, without any questions from the man behind the counter, and when i asked him a question, he woulld know just as much as Manuel from Fawlty Towers.

Small store but with a great selection of both local british beers, aswell as some Danish, Belgium, American etc. beers. Good prices for the local stuff ( wich was what i was looking for) and rather expensive for imported beers. Good knowable service by Kris. Abit out of the way, but pretty easy to hit by bus from Euston st./St. Pancras where my hotel was.
