This is my first stop when looking for local London beers to take home, only surpassed by Utobeer in Borough Market. Location and opening times are convenient, prices are moderate, and there’s a 5% discount when buying 12 bottles+.
Visited on 25th Feb 2016. Decent little Oddbins on the opposite corner to the Barrow Boy & Banker under the railway at London Bridge. Decent range of bottled beer from London and a little further afield. Have the occasional collab brew from Oddbins too. Prices are pretty good and the staff just want the be helpful which is good.
I do pop in now and again to look at the beer. It’s a decent little range!
Decent place. Mostly wine but a fair amount of shelf space dedicated to craft beer. Primarily UK stuff, with a bit of Siren, a few Kernels, some Beavertown, various other stuff. Ok, and I did manage to pick up some interesting stuff, but not great.
Have used this place many times over the years, from when working in the city to more recent trips back on holiday. Convient location next to London Bridge Station, always find some great beers here, especially some of the latest Kernel brews. Staff have always been very helpfull. Overall one of the better Oddbins in the chain (surpassed only by the excellent dedicated Blackheath Oddbins Beer Shop) Sad to see this place is threatened with being closed/moved out in regards to the ongoing London Bridge renovation. I signed the petition book instore against this in November on my last trip back. Hopefully that wont be the last visit.
Quite a nice bottle shop. Lots of focus on wine, but I get the feeling the beer section is growing. Local Londonbeers is what you find here, Kernel, Pressure Drop and quite a few other breweries are represented. Prices seem normal for London and service has never been a problem. Worth a visit.
Now stocks the core Siren range allied to previously mentioned breweres and the Beavertown canned range (5 of) costing from £2.20 upwards.
Popped in on a Wednesday lunchtime and had this medium sized, largely wine emporia, to myself.
30 or 40 bottles of beer with a good focus on London micros - Redchurch, East London, Kernel, Moncada all with a good presence.
Prices were pretty decent I thought, Kernel pales £2.55 a pop, IPA £2.95. A 2 minute stroll across the road from Utobeer, but check here first, Kernel will be a good 50p a bottle cheaper!
Update 11/12/13 (whatta date!) ...
Range of beers continues to evolve a few Tempest numbers on this visit, some Cromarty and they now have their own collab beer with ELB.
This place only gets better !
Update 08/01/14. I only just clocked on this visit there is a fridge of beer, same side as the beer stash, a little further into the shop. Smaller selection than the shelving and largely overlap, however I counted 3 beers that were in the fridge that weren’t on the shelves so worth checking out!
