Visited for Cotteridge Convention 2 on 5th March 2016. Great bottle shop about a 5 min walk from Kings Norton. Selection is excellent with a huge range of bottles from around the world and an extensive craft beer range from the UK. Add to that a bar with 8 taps dispensing brand new beers from the UK scene then what’s to be disappointed about. Staff are friendly, put up with a lot of boosted raters shopping for beer, hosted a great tasting event in the tasting room and seemed popular with the locals. A great place to go. Highly recommended.

A really superb shop in the unlikeliest of places – in fact if you were just passing you’d hardly notice it but it has perhaps the best selection of bottled beers I’ve seen anywhere in the country. We visited as part of the Ratebeer Black Country Bus Bash and couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. The owners had arranged a small tasting for us in the back room and also provided some delicious food (the homemade onion bhajis were my favourite). Excellent all round, including the very competitive prices. (Visited 6 July 2013).

We (me, Loz, Barry & Lynn) visited here yesterday Sunday 28th April 2013 on way back from a weekend at my mums in Worcester. I have to say that this is probably the best bottle shop that I have been to in the UK. I don’t doubt that the Beers of Europe has a wider and greater selection but for sheer quality and huge choice and fair prices then this wins out for me. Fairly easy to find, we accessed it from the M42, straight up the main A441 heading into Birmingham and when you get into Cotteridge you’ll see it on the left eventually, parking might be an issue but there is a pub car park opposite that you could probably sneak into, the road outside has a single yellow line and parking on a Sunday wasn’t an issue but a weekday or Saturday might be a bit more difficult, though I guess public transport up and down this road would also be very good as I guess you are just 3-4 miles from the centre of town. Beer wise, where do you start? Huge ranges of the following breweries, Brodies, Mikkeller, De Molen, Wild, Thornbridge, Buxton, Evil Twin, Kernel, Partizan, Tiny Rebel etc, etc andf then there were loads of newcomers many that I had never had or hadn’t had that often, Rebel (Cornwall?), Weird Beer and others that I forget. The shop is essentially a large oblong laid out with one central island on one side it is wine on the other is all UK beers, to the left of this central island (looking with you back to the counter) all down that left hand side is Foreign beers starting with US beers, moving onto Danish before then Belgian, Dutch, French and others. Some of the more expensive American beers along with some rare Brewdog and the odd Belgian offering are near the counter. The brothers who run this shop Cal and Jaz (I think they were called) were really friendly and we chatted for some time about who, how and where they get beers from. I was hugely impressed with this place and the friendliness and helpfulness of the brothers, I can see this becoming a regular stop off both going to or returning from my mums.

Theydon_Bois  (1029) Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, England | January 25, 2015
Revisited on Saturday Jan 24th for the RB Cotteridge Convention. They have now opened a taproom to the rear, 14 keg offerings, good mix of styles and solid breweries on offer - a new Magic Rock Cannonball on our visit! The room behind the taproom is a basic man cave affair with mis-match of chairs and stools that suited us admirably in the tasting the owners allowed us to stage. Loved the haunted house upstairs and the old bath in the shitter! Great guys here, Jas even cooked up a curry for the hungry hordes. Super solid bottle shop and now with a taproom ! Must visit - just 15 minutes on the train from New St to Kings Norton or a taxi direct to the city centre was just a tenner (we went straight to the Craven Arms in around 10-15 minutes). Score upped from 92 to 94. Visited on the RB Black country bash - 6th July ’13. What a cracking shop. Great range from all over the UK, plenty of new micros and hop profferers such as Partizan and Kernel. Mikkeller and De Molen pretty much had their own shelves! Good US selection, ditto Belgian. Friendly guys - big thanks to Jaz & Kal who hosted a tasting for us in the back room then waved us off. Definately worth the bus ride from the city centre. As well as finding London beers you can’t ordinarily find in London, they were also cheaper in most cases!

Updated review: Visited again in January 2015. Cotteridge Wines is absolutely world class. Not only is the selection of beers perhaps the best you will find in the UK, but the customer service is without peer. The new tasting room - with draft lines and growler fills - is excellent, and I am very excited to see what these guys have planned next. Cotteridge is a must-visit beer destination if you are anywhere nearby.

Original review (June 2013): An absolutely outstanding bottle shop. There are only a handful of places in the UK with selection like this place has. And the value - oh, the value! It’s fantastic. I left here with literally all I could carry. The selection includes local breweries, lots of London breweries, nice range of US micros, tons of Belgian, Scandinavian. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. This place is an definite must-visit if you are near Birmingham. Visited during the RateBeer Black Country Bash.

Exceptional range and service. So friendly, so much choice and now that the tasting room is up and running it is exceptional. Absolutely World Class. I think that the patio idea is worth following up boys.

Hands down must be the best bottle shop in the UK. Amazing selection of the best of the best UK beers, an unusuaully phenomenal American beer selection, and mainland European selection. Very good prices. Extremely friendly staff who are passionate about beer and eager to please you. Such a great place. Absolutely mandatory place to stop.

Visited during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. Wow, what a gem of a place. Cotteridge is a pretty unassuming-looking bottle shop on the outskirts of Birmingham. Inside you’ll find a treasure trove of quality beer. Plenty of UK micros available alongside a well-curated selection of international breweries. This place has probably the largest selection of De Molen beers I’ve seen outside of Bodegraven. Quality London breweries like Partizan, The Kernel, and Beavertown were well-represented. Gems like Armand & Tommy were on sale for 12 quid. The service was kind, accomodating. Prices for the beer was great, in many cases lower than what I’ve paid directly from the brewery. Overall, a world class bottle shop. This place goes toe-to-toe with Kris Wines for best bottle shop in the UK.

Scopey  (663) Croydon, England | November 1, 2015
My only visit to date was during the Cotteridge Convention, January 2015. It really lived up to the hype. From the outside it looks like any other corner shop/convenience store. Inside the front room contains a truly world-class selection of bottled beer. Excellent selection of UK-stuff including exclusives and stuff not seen elsewhere. The international selection is also pretty spectacular and contains beers from some of the best breweries in the world. Coming from London the prices are exceptional. In the back room they have nice selection of taps for growler fill and a small tasting room. The service is equally fabulous. Truly one of the best bottle shops out there.

Been back a few times now, for ’tastings’, ’bottle shares’ and on my own: really like the place. A couple of miles down the road from Birmingham’s other ’beer geek’ shop in Stirchley, I prefer this place now. You are left alone to wander along the rows of beer to select and browse without any interference. The prices are keen and the selection different to their near competition: these guys seem to major on craft and newer UK breweries with a smaller International and traditional area. I’ll always try visit both this place and Stirchley when I need a special beer fix because between them you are going to find something you want, need or is interesting.
