What a find! Being an ex-pat Melburnian this place was a real treat - a far better selection than pretty much any place Iíve been, including in Belgium and the UK. Some of the more obscure beers are represented including Mikeller, a good range of Flying Dog, a bunch of quality Aussie micros (and some lesser quality ones), and a whole host of continental and UK beers. The chap who served me was enthusiastic and helpful, and knowledgeable with it. What a beer retailer should aspire to be.

This store is easily the BEST bottle shop in Melbourne! Was quite shocked at the amazing range of International and local beer + boutique wines to die for. They have also recently opened a BEER ONLY store in Richmond. I highly recommend checking these guys our if youíre serious about your beer!! :)

Takes a while to get to if youíre not driving and coming from the CBD but when you arrive, itís totally worth it. The selection is huge. Two full walls with a couple of extra shelves to go with them. The prices rival anywhere else in Melbourne (most prices in most places are about the same) The guys know their beer and are always keen for a chat about beer. I really love this place and would love it right next to my apartment in Rio. Iím totally going back the next time Iím in Melbourne.

While the interior is a bit run down the selection is fantastic and Simon has a huge knowledge of his product line. This is a great place to go and just browse beers to find something to take your fancy. An unparalleled selection of small Aussie brewers as well as an impressive international line up. Make time for a visit, I dont think you will be disappointed.

The east coastís best bottle shop by a country mile. First place in Australia where Iíve found twice as many new rates as I could carry. Bought around 20 singles and could have bought at least 20 more if I had another pair of hands for carrying. Just as an example, this place had four different Ethiopian beers. (If Ethiopia is anything like Tanzania, thatís probably two more than the average Ethiopian bottle shop.) There was also a good selection of Brits and Belgians, and a huge range of Victorian micros and a few from WA. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. They know about RateBeer and they appreciate our support. The good news for us interstaters is that a mail order service is planned in the next four months. The shop is a bugger to get to but very much worth it. I took the train (15 min wait, 30 min journey, 10 min walk after asking for directions) there and a tram back. The tram stop is 30 metres from the shop so itís the best option.
