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.

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 Great selection but can get out of date bottles easily.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.

Absolutely amazing range. Staff can be a bit hit and miss - sometimes really friendly, cheerful and helpful, other times silent. Watch out for out-of-date bottles, some of them seem to hang on the shelves for quite some time (years?).

Great range of beers, including US and Belgians. Somewhat pricey. Staff seem to be knowledgeable about beer.

Pretty cold & stark looking interior but plenty of room for a huge selection of beers. Service usually isnít the best, except the tall guy Adam is great & i often make a beeline for him but the rest always seem pretty surly. Prices are pretty high compared to others & stock isnt always fresh, particularly english ales. Also, the website is pretty misleading with pricing & i dont realize im in the shop to purchase. Am a member of their club but you dont seem to get anything with it. Been to one of the big beer fests, which was ok value, samples were very small though. Overall, if you want a big selection definitely visit but in most cases you can find it cheaper elsewhere.

Good prompt service on internet orders. Have used them a few times without any dramas and they always ring to confirmation out of stock orders.

Internet order. Easy to deal with, efficient and chucked in some glasses for me. The prices are a bit higher than the other big beerstore in melbourne, but these guys have a few things in that that store doesnít. Easily one of the best in Australia. Would deal with again.

(Physical shop) I liked this place a lot. Lots of good things on the shelves, lots of good things being shelved. Staff were friendly and clearly available to help but left me to browse. The place feels like a ramshackle neighbourhood bottleshop where someone likes beer and people have noticed. Thereís no pretension or fetishism about beer evident here. There are plenty of good beers here and plenty of respectable ones for the homesick Brit as well - if I want some Brains for the next triple crown decider, Iíll know where to go. Prices are fairly good, but not always the best Iíve seen where I have a comparator. Other than that, the only downside is itís too far from home.

[Oct 2011] Now has a beer-only shop in Richmond too. With lots of new things available in Melbourne these days, Purvis is looking a little under-curated and at times dusty at the moment, but the breadth of offerings is remarkable.

With so much more on offer here these days, do feel like youíve got to look for the gems. Gone from a place Iíd make a trip across town for to a good place to stop by when passing. Still much prefer the old shop to the new.

nate2g  (1071) Boomtown!, Australia | September 26, 2009| Updated August 9, 2012
Placed an order online with Purvis and it arrived at my doorstep in Brisbane two days later. Fast, efficient service and a great range of beers available, and thereís always something new on offer. Reasonably priced as well. Cheers guys! Update August í12. Visited the Bridge Rd. shop. Nice big space with a lot of bottles here. Canít be sure on what sort of turnover they have but some beers looked past their best before date (PA, IPAs and the like). Stick to local beers and you should be safe.
