After reading bluevegie’s review, I had set my hopes fairly high, but what I found still managed to surpass them. One entire wall of singles, a small fridge for ciders and random things like, that another wall full of singles in coolers, and of course another row of coolers for macros. In comparison to the international beer shop, I would say that their collection of Belgian and English is just slightly smaller. However, it isn’t a huge difference, and nothing spectacular is lost. Also, they more than make up for it by carrying Thorogoods products, which are hard to find even in SA, and also a great supply of NZ stuff (Epic, Emersons, etc.). Staff were friendly and knew their beer. Prices were maybe a little higher than International Beer Shop, but not much, and you get a 10% discount on mixed 6 packs, which probably evens it out. Overall, if it isn’t ranked #1 in Perth, it is #1a. Outstanding, and a must stop.
online orders with them. Very helpful staff. Very quick to get back to you on internet or facebook purchases. Very fast shipping. Great WA selection and can get some interesting US stuff. Prices can be high but it is Australia so count on it.

That’s it, I’m hooked, sign me up, can I sponsor them, can they sponsor me...., this place is awesome. From singles to packaged, nip bottles to magnums, your average through to the rare and vintages they have really done their importing groundwork here. Got a little overwhelmed and ended up walking out with a mixed six-pack of pretty average stuff, what!? Have to keep coming back I guess, work my way through their massive range. Took second place for ’Best Bottle Shop (300+ beers)’ in the ’Beer and Brewer’ magazines peoples choice awards, I reckon they were robbed. Well set out with all nooks and crannies filled with beer and breweriana, timber everything, used books on brewing and world beers set out like a library, nice ambiance and friendly knowledgeable staff. Could only fault them with not stocking enough Euro beers, especially German as I dying for a Kellerbier at the time. Anticipating my next visit!!

Good selection. Some old stuff in there, but some different beers. Mixed experience with service + staff,
So annoyed i have just found out about this place, has a great selection of beers, as good as IBS and Slowbeer however with a great selection of some American greats (Stone, alesith, dogfish etc). Very helpful over the phone, cant wait to order again!
One of the better bottleshops in Perth. Selection is very good and always changing. Some staff are great but others can be a little pushy sometimes which is annoying. Very good growler system with 8 taps. Always something good on offer too. Not quite as cheap as IBS or mane but you pay for what you get when it comes to craft. One of ’the’ places to buy craft in Perth
