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!

Iíll 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 couldnít 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 canít 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 guyís English is minimal.

Possibly the best beer store in London for my money. The owner is friendly, selection is great (although not quite as extensive as Utobeer in Borough Market), and best of all, most beers are under £2.50.
Very out of the way. You wouldnít even realise it was a beer shop. Itís called Kris Wines, and thereís a giant coors light sign taking up most of the window.
Well worth a visit.

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

Apart from the lack of ideal location, I really canít find a complaint about this place.
The owner, Kris, is incredibly friendly and helpful. He was kind enough to give me a small discount when I purchased over £150 of beer. The type of service only available in small businesses!
Krisís passions for beers shows in the selection, as he puts everything in there. Good selection of European beers (e.g. Mikkeller, De Molen, Struise, UK brewers). An unbelievable selection of American beers - Pipeworks, Prairie Artisanal, Stone, Alesmith, etc.
He keeps the shop simple, small, with no music just to focus on the beer.

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 beer shop that is worthwhile the mile walk from Camden tube station. Huge selection of British beers and good selection of US and German beers as well. Owner is very helpful and know many details about his beers.
