I’ve ordered from Beautiful Beers’ online shop in the past but never managed to make the trek out to the shop itself. If I had known it was this good, I never would have waited so long! For some reason, the website doesn’t give a proper idea of how much beer they have. Concentrating on Belgians, there’s also a very good selection from the USA and Canada (I think the latter was ordered specially for Canada Day last month), and of course British, Nordic, Antipodean and Dutch beers also get a look-in. There are some North American beers on draught but it’s growler only. The prices are very reasonable as well. A good place to treat yourself or a beery relative/friend.

Visited 02/07/17. This place was possibly the highlight of my holiday in Suffolk! I was after US ticks and picked up 5, plus a local beer. The owner is Dutch so no surprise that they have a wide array of Dutch beers. Plus Belgian, German, Swedish, Canadian and East Anglian beers. In fact more of a focus on European and North American beers than UK craft so has its own niche. Attractive little shop. The owner was helpful and chatty. Could hear another customer getting excited about the beers they had in stock. A gem of a place.

Visited on 4th June 2017. Lovely bottle shop about 10-15 mins walk from the station. The layout is neat and tidy with a focus on Belgian beer, there’s also a good range of local beers, plus those from Europe and the US. Also have home brew products. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Prices were good. Liked the place and would recommend a visit.

This is THE must visit place in Bury St Ed for beer. A great range of bottled beers complimented by the availability of 4 beers to take out. The owner is very knowledgable and helpful. Belgian, Dutch, US and UK beers feature prominently, with some others too. Shop is beautifully laid out. Home brew products also available. This shop and the Apex are why I go to Bury.

Beautiful Beers is a pretty sizeable beer shop, which is well located in central Bury St Edmunds. We visited on a Friday late morning and were the only customers at the time. The selection is wide and well ordered by country, region and style. At the entrance area there is a hefty selection of Belgian beers. To the left hand side of the counter is where the more local and obscure beers sits including a nice range of Old Chimneys. Towards the back is the American craft stuff and also a section for homebrew. Prices seemed reasonable and service was pretty great. A quality bottle shop and an essential stop if you are in the area.

Rene stocks many ales that I haven’t seen in any other beer shop in the uk. Great selection of classic and lesser known ales. If you want to quietly browse, you will be made to feel welcome . If you want advice, you will be treated to expert opinion. Mail order service is first rate.

A nice roomy beer shop near the town centre. Well ordered and diverse selection of beers from the UK, USA, Belgium and Holland. Other countries were thin on the ground. I managed to find half a dozen bottles of interest and also bought some expensive Westvleterens (all three). Service was good. There is also home brew supplies in the back of the shop including a decent selection of US and NZ hops. Overall this place is well worth a visit.

A place I completely love to pieces! Being relatively local this is the only shop of it’s kind within my area. I also have to thank this shop for appearing because I hadn’t even heard of real beer until I went inside and tried my first decent beer. Since the opening of Beautiful Beers I have been on a discovery of the world of beer and have tried all sorts from Belgian ales, Saisons, IPA’s, Whitbiers etc. The owner René is such a nice person, he knows alot about the world of beer and I always learn something new when I’m there. Beautiful Beers always makes me happy!
