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).

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.

Kris Wines is the THE place in London to score some top beers at a decent price. His selection is always changing and he updates his newly arrived beers on his twitter and facebook accounts with pictures which is highly useful. Kris the owner is also very helpful upon helping the customer choose the beer right for them. Worth the trot up to Camden Road! Five star!

The best beer shop in London, hands down. The location is a little strange, tucked in a corner of Camden/Islington that’s not too-well traveled (by me, at least). The store is small and pokey, half of it devoted to wine. The beers are organized roughly by country The UK options are quite good, lots of Kernel, Marble, rare Brewdogs, interesting Scottish beers, some smaller southern micros. The American options are interesting - Bruery, Lost Abbey, Clown Shoes, Maine Beer, Rogue etc. There’s also plenty of Mikkeller, De Molen, De Struise, Nogne and many others available. The last time I visited, the shop had a number of different Cantillon offerings. Kris is very helpful, and always happy to make suggestions. The prices are the best in the city for the quality on offer. Overall, highly recommended.

Small shop with high quality selection of British micros and also a fine selection of beers from the rest of Europe and some Americans. Visiting in mid-January is not the best timing according to the staff; off season and a lot of holes in the shelves.
