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.
Large store (compared to what I am used to) in a small town. Easy to reach by car with enough parking space. Quite some micros for German standards, most German and unknown to me. Some American (Base Camp, Caldera). Service is friendly. Would visit again. Prices are low.

Seit sich die Zwerge getrennt haben, ist der Service kommplett untragbar geworden. Die Auswahl wird komplett ueber den Frenchisegeber der Nordmanngruppe bezogen und zu saftigen Preisen weiterverschaerbelt.
Ich hatte mehrere Biere bestellt und nur eine Teillieferung erhalten, zum Teil Biere die Ich nicht bestellt hatte erhalten und warte seit Wochen auf den Rest. Trotz Reklamation in Hamburg tut sich nichts...
Good web store with some germa gems and a good belgian selection. Good prices as well. Packaging is a bit questionable though, with no plastic wrapping and only cardboard paper to protect the bottles. Which is not suffient always, at one occasion did I get some broken bottles, and they were not very cooperative about it.
Excellent web site!
BUT. The web site is wrong.

This rating is for the former web shop. My order was delivered within a few days. Shipping costes are the usual ones inside of Germany. The packaging was really good. The assortiment ranges from many German to Belgian, other European and American beers. Many standard ones but also many rarities. One of the best selections in Germany. The prices are fortunately a bit below average. However, the structure and layout of this site would need an update. Nevertheless highly recommended.
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).
