Placed a complicated two-person, two-country order that was filled quickly and efficiently with a lot of personal involvement and advice from The Man Himself. As others have commented, the site is only in German, which is very strange, since the shop cannot possibly be aimed at the German market. I know of only four (well, maybe five) Germans who would dare buck tradition and risk ostracism to try beers from outside their hometowns, although Sebastian and others are certainly working hard to change that. Certainly this place has the largest selection of beers in the country. Prices are a bit high, which is understandable given that the German foreign beer market must be about the size of North Korea’s. Beers arrived in Belgium promptly, wrapped within an inch of their lives, so only nuclear warfare could have done them any harm, and then only if their aim was good. This place gives me hope for the future of the beer scene in Germany.
Only ever made one purchase from this webshop, but so far only have great things to say too!
Nice fast communication in English via email, got a tip that I could add two more bottles and keep the shipping at the same price.
Nice fast delivery.
I had some problems getting a new PayPal account, but heard back that it was no problem, I could take my time with the payment.
Super nice, if I ever see the beers from my storage needs replacing, I’ll go back to this store for sure!
Only bit that could be improved is that I can only find a German version of the website.
Great webshop. Have ordered from here several times, and it always works out great. Good selection, perfect service and always fast shipping in safe boxes. They even shipped my first box before they had my money on their account. I really recommend it!

(Ambiance = ease of use of website) 2010: These guys are the epitome of German efficiency, combined with the going-out-of-their way-to-help helpfulness of the Belgians or Irish. So quick, so easy, and such a good range of beers. Beers were well packed, and were swiftly dispatched. Will definitely order from there again.
2011: Did order from there again, two nice full boxes of new exciting beers from all over the world just in time for xmas, and the service was just as fantastic! Bumping up the score. Will definitely order from there again...
Great selection of beers - one of the best places to find non-German beers in Germany. Also has great selection of German specialty beers. Shipments very quick within Germany and never had any damaged bottles.
Ambiance is a 5, because I helped Sebastian carry some of his beers to his car in Bodegraven after the festival. Service is impeccable. Got my package soon en even send it to the German post office to save me a lot of euro’s. Great selection. Not too expensive, considering the quality. Very much recommended.
I made my first order in 2010 and have since then made an order or two every year. The selection is always interesting and the owners are really friendly. Very fast delivery, my last order was made on a Wednesday and the very well packed box with beer arrived on the following Monday. I can understand German so no problem with the website.
When i oredered in middle of February 2010. the selection was very good, but now (June 2010.) it’s...GREAT. Ordered 15 beers, all packed well. It took three weeks for package to arrive, but it was worth waiting.
