This place has the best selection of any shop i’ve been in in the UK. It’s a bit of a drive for me, but always worth the trip. The staff is very knowledgeable about everything on the shelves, and are always happy to help. I don’t know how he does it, but it seems like the guy has drank everything in the shop and has a photographic memory of each individual experience. A good variety of all things Belgian, German and British, and I was happy to see some American stuff to! I was even suprised by seeing them armed with Tactical Nuclear Penguins on my last trip! An excellent little shop, I never walk away unsatisfied.
Smaller than I remembered, the beers are set up in the back of the shop, which is slightly odd as everyone who entered the shop all walked past the shelves of wine and squeezed into the back for the great choice of beers. The have a couple of keg beers on for tasting. I remember this place as a glorious shop to visit, I reckon it’s been overtaken a little now.
A small bottle shop - catering mostly to wine, however there is a good selection of Belgian, US and German bottles. Not loads in the way of local beers, but a definite ’pop in and browse’ shop if you’re nearby. Staff are eager to help and seem knowledgeable. Visited 04/10/2016.
By far the best selection of craft bottles in town. They even have a couple kegs tapped when school’s in session. Handy location that’s closer to the residential area of Cambridge. Good value & intelligent staff.
Nice little store, just a little outside the city centre. Staff is knowledgeable. Selection is pretty good. Noticed most of the good dutch brewers are there, as well as some Americans, Germans, relative little British. And also if you are interested wines.
I happened to walk past and decided to take a look. Just a little peak without buying anything. Then I bought a Lou Pepe Framboise and a Blaugies for 23£, which seems like a pretty fair deal. They have a lot of De Molen, some Mikkeller, various Americans like Stone and Moylans, some Germans and Belgians. The local selection seemed a bit limited, but I wasn’t looking carefully. There was a guy working there, and based on eavesdropping I would guess that he knows beers and some other stuff too.
Bacchanalia is a great bottle located on Mill street away from the main tourist hub of Cambridge. It is relatively small inside, but packs a punch! They boast a very good selection of UK, German, Belgian and US beers amongst others. Nice local options and quite a few beers that don’t make it to London. The guy working there was friendly and rather knowledgeable. Prices seemed rather good to a pseudo-Londoner. A Cambridge must-visit.

Brilliant bottle shop (with a few ales on draught as well).on Mill Road. A ticker’s paradise. Friendly, helpful, honest and knowledgable staff. Maybe not so much English stuff (although you an pick up a few) but plenty of US, German, Dutch and Belgian delights.

It’s more wine shop tha beer shop, but this doesn’t matter. Beer selection is excellent, they have some German, Dutch (De Molen), Belgian, US beers. And of course local staff. I bought there some Founders, Rogue, Stone and Cambridge Moonshine beers. Knowledgeable staff, not far from pubs, where you are most likely heading.
