Drinkie’s - The Bottle Shop es la única tienda de cerveza que pude encontrar en El Cairo. Drinkie lleva alrededor de ocho cervezas diferentes, todas ellas hechas por Al Ahram Beverage Co., y después de pasar una semana en Egipto, no puedo imaginar hacer nada mejor que encontrar una tienda que vende no menos de ocho diferentes cervezas egipcias. No sé de ninguna otra tienda de botella en El Cairo y alcohol no se sirve en la mayoría de los establecimientos debido a restricciones islámicas.

Given circumstances still a relative high ranking. Got some 7 beers out of this shop, all from Al Ahram Brewery. Owner is not that interested, but still OK. Again given this is Egypt relative high score.

probably harsh with the scoring, again I’m judging by world standards, not making allowances for being in a beer desert. 7 different Egyptian beers available, pretty cheap, but all 7 are yellow bubbly water (ok not the shop’s fault...)

Drinkie’s has got everything... available on the Egyptian market that is. Which means Egyptian beers from Al-Ahram Beverages - owned by Heineken. After some time in Egypt Drinkie’s becomes your friend. Also they deliver to your flat or room for a mere LE 4,- equalling half a Euro.

There are loads of bottle shops around Cairo, but the Drinkie’s chain may be the most prolific. They carry no more than 5 different beers and none of them is interesting. That however covers every single beer available in Egypt at the moment I’m afraid.

Drinkie’s - The Bottle Shop is the only beer store I could find in Cairo. Drinkie’s carries about eight different beers, all of them made by Al Ahram Beverage Co., and having spent a week in Egypt, I can’t imagine doing any better than finding a store that sells no less than eight different Egyptian beers. I know of no other bottle shop in Cairo and alcohol is not served at most establishments due to Islamic restrictions. Drinkie’s is two doors West of La Bodega restaurant in the same side of the street. I’m not certain about the address number (it could be "151", but I’m not sure) as the storefront didn’t have an address displayed.
