700 bottles – yes, I really can believe the number after having been to the shop and walked through the tight passages between the shelves. The shop displays a fine selection of beers from interesting American, Belgian, German, Scandinavian, Dutch etc. breweries. They are all very well arranged and lined up. Most impressive is the selection on British, and especially, London microbreweries. Easily the best beer bottle shop I have been to so far. Smiling and friendly service. Btw, thanks for the umbrella! (visited, 06.11.2012).

Very good selection. Tiny place. Friendly service. Bottles from floor to ceiling and sorted in an intuitive way. Not far to walk if you visit other beer destinations in the area. Next time it’s tempting to stay at the B&B around the corner.

I’ll say it: best bottle shop in London. To start, the selection is outstanding. Lots of British stuff, plenty of Belgian, a whole wall of German, and lots of American. (There are plenty of other countries in there, too.) The American selection was quite impressive. There was stuff in here I couldn’t even buy when I lived in New York City! Lost Abbey/Port Brewing, Odell, and Big Sky are in there, to name a few. (None of these beers are distributed in New York.) The shop itself is tiny but the space is utilized to the max. Thankfully, while I was in there there was never more than one other customer. It could get cramped very quickly, I think. And what I liked the most was that all the bottles were labled with the price. (This is not the case at Utobeer.) And the prices are better than decent. Some real bargains can be found, but for the most part the prices are fair. Sure, Kris Wines is a bit outside the city center, but there is a bus stop right nearby, and the walk from Euston Station is only about 30 minutes. I can’t wait to go back.

Note well: there are two guys who usually work here: Kris and another fella. Kris speaks perfect English and is very helpful. The other guy’s English is minimal.

I have been to Kris Wines many times over past few years. It is a small shop near Camden in North London. The selection is very good as they always have a lot of Belgian and British micro brews as well as a decent German selection and an ever increasing collection of US Beers. It’s just a small store and things are a bit crowded but organized. The staff are super friendly but not overly knowledgeable. The beers are in good shape but I have seen a couple of beers (IPAs) that were were a bit out of date. IMO that is partially the consumers responsibility to check though. In the end the Prices are fair, staff are very nice and helpful and the beer selection is Great. I need to get back there soon.

This place is awesome. Slightly annoying part of town to get to, but has several walls full of beer bottles with good selections of Belgian, German and British as well as some American stuff and bits and pieces from the best new brewers elsewhere (Mikkeller/Nogne/De Molen to mention a few).

erickok  (233) Leuven, Belgium | April 20, 2012| Updated June 3, 2013
What a strange place... It looks like any other night show, with beers, wines, and a cigarette counter at the entrance. Quite small too. Only the displayed bottles behind the glass reveal what’s actually going on here. Decent Belgian collection, great and rare UK micros and an amazing selection of Americans. The guy also was super friendly and clearly proud on what he offered. Too bad I could only carry a limited amount back home. Off the touristy route, but a great visit (and pretty close to Brewdog Camden).

Quite small place located about 10 min walk away from the tube station. Massive selection of local, European and American craft beer and the prices are pretty reasonable. The guy behind the counter wasn’t much of a help, though. You should definitely visit this place if you are heading for example to Brewdog Camden.

This is a real beer hunters treasure trove. A small off licence that probably has the largest & most interesting selection of beers in the United Kingdom at reasonable prices. Only downside is that that guy behind the till did not appear to be able to speak English & therefore wasn’t much help.
