This impressive bottle shop has a perfect location for all those who criss-cross Germany by car: on the outskirts of a minor town, just a few kilometres from a busy motorway. I had had no idea that it was there, and I wouldn’t have got it but for a quick tip from a good friend. The selection, at least in terms of quantity and geographical variety, is better than I have seen in most places in Germany. This being said, I must add that the shop is first and foremost a good place if you want to buy decent Belgian beer or just haven’t rated some of the better exported ales from the UK. Glassware available, too. The owner is very friendly and ready to offer advice. Fair prices. I will come back if ever in the vicinity (most probably on the road to somewhere else).
My former #1 go-to- place for online beer orders (well, sort of still is). Sort of a fun and unpredictable place. My impression is that there’s actually some sort of beer drinking dwarfs (the ones santa sent to rehab) working in a magical beer cave, servicing orders from this not-updated-since-2004- web site. Unless you live in Germany, the shipping details are apparently done manually. But no matter what day/time you place your order, you’ll usually get a quote within a couple of hours (I reckon these ones don’t sleep). They have a good selection of classic belgians, germans, whcih are pretty ok priced. They get others too, but not that much and not too frequently updated. Packaging is good (no a single broken bottle yet). But for some reason (not having a sync between what’s in storage / ordered) they may switch bottles at times, or send a couple of extra ones.
Seit April 2008 erhalte ich den monatlichen Bierzwerg (10 Flaschen einer kleineren Brauerei). Das übrige Angebot ist in den letzten Monaten spezieller geworden. Gute Beratung im Laden, nette Gespräche. Der Bierzwerg ist regelmäßig auf dem Festival der Bierkulturen in Köln vertreten.
Womit habe ich das verdient? Lange habe ich mich durch Getränke- und Supermärkte gekämpft um irgerndwo mal andere, gute und neue Biere zu finden. Und dann eröffnet knapp 200m Luftlinie entfernt dieser tolle Laden... Nette Beratung, toller Service und immer wieder tolle Gespräche rund ums Thema
Nice shop with a good, but average and quite boring selection. German beers are mostly much overprized and you only get the average foreign beers which you find in any better beer shops. Shipping costs are quite fair but not as cheap as you get them from other online shops. You can have a look at their selection every now and then but can’t regulary purchase new beers.
Good selection of German and Belgian beers combined with some other interesting stuff. Not many news since I ordered many months ago though. Very fair prices. Friendly staff, ok packaging and quick shipping.
Nice store, but the opening times are not perfect for working people (even if you live in Münster, 20km away).
They should think of order some new Microbrews - they actually don’t have Mikkeller for example.
Dobry sklep ze sporym wyborem piw, nie tylko niemieckich. Mnóstwo Belgii, UK, troche egzotyki i np piwa z Grenlandii! Piwa niemieckie te nie masowe, ceny w euro tanie nawet. Wysy³ka do polski droga i skomplikowana. Ale dzieki pomocy jednej osoby jest mo¿liwoœæ zdobywania z tamt¹d piw. Polecam
Nice store front and very friendly helpful staff that was able to deal with my lack of understanding of the language, guys speak English great. They have a nice offering of German brewed beers, particular ones that are on the outside of typical German style brews, imperial stouts for instance, as well as UK and US offerings. Only a portion of their offerings are on these shelves. Be sure to ask since the rest of the selection is in their large storeroom just on the other side of the property. So be sure to ask if you don’t see something you’re after. I look forward to coming back here if I’m able to break away during the work week.
I was going to order from here, but decided to check it out in person first. Glad I made the extra stop. This is a superb beer store. The biggest selection I have seen in Germany. Price is fantastic. The gentleman working here is very friendly and goes out of his way to help you. Situated in an industrial area, and having strange opening hours. He explained that this isn’t their main business and just do it to occupy some otherwise wasted real estate. I will definitely be ordering from here often.
