Over the past few years, i must have bought more beer here than anywhere else in the country. Itís only 16 minutes on the train to Canterbury so I can do door to door in 30 minutes. Service has been fantastic from several of the staff. Prices can be expensive for the higher end bottles, but there is also good value in a lot of the other beers. Now with a few beers on tap too. My nearest place for lambic.
an excellent place to come to chat about beer. Dave wont steer you wrong and will give you an honest whether it be good or bad. He will also recommend beer based on your preferences or what is new and popular in the shop. He has tried most of them so he knows what he is talking about. An essential quality in a shop with so many uncommon beers from around the world.

Tiny beershop with the greatest beers. Very helpfull and nice staff. Great location. Awesome.
Rated the food a 10, itís not really part of the shop, but the place theyíre in, the goods shed, has some awesome local produce and at other tiny shops they use that to make some awesome sandwiches, simple meals etc. Awesome.
Iíve used this place for online orders many times. Nicely refined selection of UK micros. The foreign stuff (especially from the lowlands) is also quite good. The ordering systemís a bit inefficient (you email them, they email you back, then you send payment if everythingís in stock), but the staff are friendly. The packing job is always excellent, bomb-proof. My only quibble is with the prices. The more limited stuff seems to get priced so itíll sit around for a while (BoE have charged half as much for certain beers). Overall, an impressive operation.
Great service, interesting beers, ok shipping, good packaging. Bit on the pricy side. Mostly ordered Kernel from them which is cheaper and more available from another unmentioned online store but they do have interesting beers from other breweries and Iím sure Iíll order again at some point.
Probably one the best bottle shops in the country, tucked away in the goods shed food hall next to the west station.
Has a lot of new beers and huge range of craft beers including Beavertown, Kernel and Partizan from the UK.
Overall well worth a visit if you are in town.
Does tastings on the first Thursday of every month. Generally closed Mondays.
