Very helpful owner and employees who took the time to try to help me find a reasonable facsimile of a long-discontinued Whatneyís ale. Nice selection, and when I am back from US again will return with a long list.

Great selection of beers in a lovely setting, and right next to some great pubs, not least the Market Porter. A must if you love beer. The guys that run it are gruff but massively knowledgable and very friendly if you express interest in the beers. There are comments here about the selection being limited - not true. If you canít see the truly interesting stuff, you arent looking hard enough on those packed shelves.

Our very favourite place to get our beer fix. We used to travel a decent distance to get to it, but luckily now we live a short walk away. Weíre not ashamed to say, it had an impact on our choice to live in Borough. Run by very friendly people with a decent wealth of beer knowledge. If they donít have something in stock, they will try to get it for you. It can get very crowded at times, but it is hardly a deterrent. There is a large permanent collection of stock, but they rotate a small portion of it fairly often. We find something new everytime we go, which is almost every Saturday. There are sometimes tasting samples on hand as well. If youíre visiting the stall, you must of course check out the rest of the market - amazing food, wine and cider around every corner. There is also an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, including The Rake, which is owned by Uto and The Market Porter. It is now open Thursday - Saturday until 4:30ish.

Small market stall i Borough Market close to London Bridge Underground & other interesting real ale bars. Fantastic selection of interesting beers from all over the world at good prices & knowledgable owner. Pity the website is poor and they wonít do mail order.

The best selection of bottled beer in the South East of England. It really is as simple as that. Open Thursday to Saturday. Good beer representation from all over the world and new stuff always arriving. The staff are great. Rich, Ed, Mike & Al are all very experienced and their expertise is second to none. They are very helpful. You can make a day of it here as there are plenty of great food stalls in Borough Market and when you are done pop round the corner to Utobeers sister bar the Rake for a splendid draft!

Extremely friendly and knowledgeable service with a great quality focused bottle selection of local, European and American craft beer. Well worth the visit, and the surrounding marketplace is a nice place.

My favourite shop in London. While the women gp to Harrods, we can relax here. Outstanding selection. Lovely area as well. You can get some good food with your beer. And you can have a quick walk to Brew Wharf. Yummi

Great location and easy to get to. It placed in the market so you can make a day trip out of going here. They have an absolutely huge choice of americans, british and belgium beers. But this place is not cheap. Also they have no prices so on the bottles so you are usually quite surprised when you go pay.

Being a market stall, there is no doorman who might turn away tourists (assuming tourism is a bad thing?). For what its worth I live locally & have found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. They are very enthusiastic & not too precious, despite having a deep cellar.The best beers are not always on display- not surprising considering the place is open plan. Fantastic!

Very small stall in Londonís best place for food - Borough Market. The selection is the best in town - hundreds of beers, lots of tough finds and very good on Belgian beers, stocking the larger bottle sizes. I was there just before xmas with a friend shopping for German beer for his dad as a gift. Although they were very busy, the staff had time to help select and explain each choice. Prices can be higher than other retailers, but the stock and expertise are deep. I work nearby, so Iím there alot! London has many good wine and spirit retailers, but apart from this place is let down for beers. Adding to this review - Utobeer is strong on Belgian beer, not a all-inclusive but dozens of beers in 75cl bottles, and a good Lambic selection. German beer isnít so well represented, only about 2 dozen brewers products on the shelves. Add in a shelf of intresting beer from around the world, four brews from Brouwerij ít IJ from Holland and its well worth a visit. If your a tourist looking for UK beers this isnít the best place, it seems to mainly focus on imports (to the UK). Let me reiterate - the staff are knowledgable and helpfull. If your after import beers, this is the best shop in London - no question. My only problem with it is the donít do glassware.
