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.

10 years ago, even 5 years ago it would have been super place for me. But now as we have proper beer shops in Estonia, as I have seen proper beer shops in different countries, this place looks like almost nothing. But to put this place into context of foreign beer availability in England, Bacchanalia is super lux place. All hail modern kraft, but not only. Good King Henry Reserve sold here. Will come back!

Visited twice on Saturday 20th Jan en route to and from the train station. First time shop should have been open and 'lights were on but no one was home' (sign on door said back in 2 minutes but they weren't!). So as the Cambridge Beer Festival beckoned we decided to try again on way back. Glad we did, as this is a decent shop. Front of shop mainly wines and spirits with beers at the back, with a wide selection available of local, national and international beers. Ruck sack duly filled. We mentioned the earlier attempt to visit and he aploogised saying he popped out for 5 minutes but only had the 'back in 2 mins' sign!!

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.

Good bottleshop in Cambridge. Not a huge shop but a very good beer selection, plenty of Euro stuff available. Prices on the higher side, especially considering it’s not in London.

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.
