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.

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, donít 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 didnít 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 havenít got the ígoodí guy. The guy I seem to get doesnít want any form of conversation, knows jack shit about the beers and doesnít 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 wonít 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.

This shop is a long way out of my way, but itís worth it. If youíre looking for a rare Mikkeller or a limited release De Molen then if itís not here itís not in London. The Belgian selection is good but the range is static. The British beer and world beer areas are more exciting. Iíve picked up lots of De Molens, Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, Nogne Imperial Stout Cognac BA, Struise Pannepot and Dark Island Reserve here to name just a few. Itís a treasure trove. However, on some occasions Iíve come away empty-handed so you canít guarantee youíll be lucky. I can see why some people have had problems with the service - Kris is a fellow beer lover and knows his stuff, but the older and younger guys who Iíve sometimes seen working there just provide cover and donít seem to be interested in beer.

Great little beer and wine store located somewhere between Camden Town, Kentish Town and Caledonian Road. I took a walk from Kentish Town (ca 15 min) and there are buses from Camden Town. At first it just looks like an average hole-in-the-wall-liquor-store, but once youíre in, the walls are packed with interesting beers. Itís not very spacious, but the beers are well selected, with lots of beers from the US, Belgium and Denmark. Good selection of British beers, the selection of beers from London micros is specially impressive. I managed mainly on my own, so the knowledge level was hard to assess, but service was swift and friendly. Well worth a detour if youíre visiting Southampton Arms or the Camden Town pubs.

Better American selection than most places in the US, you pay for it but its much cheaper than a trade.

Great shop, very unusual vibe spent about 1/2 an hour in there most punters were Irish and Scottish alcoholics buying skol super. Anyway, selection is excellent especially for modern hop heavy beers from USA Denmark and uk. Belgian and German isnít large but thereís some great stuff. Far better than utobeer and cheaper. There are some bargains in there too even mikkeller is reasonable. 2nd best beer shop in uk only bottle stop in cheadle hulme (gtr manchester) trumps this.
