Unfortunately it’s been a while since I’ve made it in as it’s too far out the way for me these days. Good selection though and generally helpful staff.

Visited on Saturday 25th Oct 2014. Really impressed with the whole set up and selection. Two guys fronting it on the day, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. They even opened up an unlabelled new/trial brew for me to try which a brewer had left them to comment on. Not cheap, but the beers are rare (very rare to me) and diverse in both breweries and styles covered. I only bought 7 different beers but I know each one will be fine and enjoyable. Glad my local guide took me here for a good look around.

Great bottle shop in the vicinity of the Cask and Barrel Southside, Southern and Dagda Bar. Stocks lots of British micros plus some well-chosen imports from the Continent and the States. Found a few beers here that I’d been looking for for quite some time. Prices are fairly reasonable as well.
