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, that’s 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 weren’t 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.

Camons  (191) Hasselager, Denmark | January 11, 2014
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.

Fairly small place, a little out of the way, but with a great selection and always some interesting gems to be found. Friendly service and fairly ok prices.

downender  (293) Bristol, England | December 27, 2013
Big selection of beers, with a very wide range available from London brewers, most of which at very good prices. Service was pretty laid back, but it was easy to find what I was looking for. A good bottle shop.

I must have had a bad experience here or something? The selection was fantastic, don’t get me wrong, but not once through the endless browsing I did, did I get asked if I needed help. Had a few questions on beers and the bloke didn’t know anything. Was reading a book the whole time I was in there. Selection amazing but everything else well below par. Maybe we just have it really good back in Aus. Will need to re-visit at some stage. ***rerate*** have now gone back and the selection has improved. Good prices especially on some hard to get brews. Service is still complete and utter shit. I still haven’t got the ’good’ guy. The guy I seem to get doesn’t want any form of conversation, knows jack shit about the beers and doesn’t have a helpful bone in his body. Service plays a big part for me and I for one think that service is the most integral part of any business. Sadly, despite the great beers on offer, I won’t be going out of my way to get back there.

Superb little drinks-market in the middle of nowhere; great selection of british beers plus a nice range of the usual suspects from Denmark and the US. Worth the walk from Kentish Town!

A lot of selection, local and otherwise. Not much in the way of service, decent prices though about the range of Oddbins around town.
