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.

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!! :)

Well I picked a busy time for them and everyone of the year to buy from plus they were down on staff due to illness but they still got the beer through to me in very good time easy people to get on with will be doing more business with them in the future.

Great place. Picked up beer I hadnít seen anywhere else, like some Cantillon lambics and a St Bernardus triple. Giddy up.

Good lay out to this store. Nice range including some stuff I havenít seen at other places. Very good range of Aussie craft and well priced. Service was ok but the guy and girl didnít really know their beers without having to look them up, although in saying that, recommended some decent selections when I did ask for a particular style. Cool place

A good range, some beers beyond their best before, particularly those from the UK. And the service was somewhat lacking, with all the staff I have experienced seemingly not very happy to help. Beers can be abit pricey too.

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.

Terrific range of beers from Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. The guys know there products and are always willing to offer advice.

Have made a few internet orders and been in the shop a few times. Great selection but can get out of date bottles easily. Especially the UK stuff and less interesting stuff. Adam is great to deal with and knows his beers. Can be a bit pricey on imports but the Australian stuff is well priced. One of the best stores in Australia.
