Hard to refrain from gushing about these guys. Hoptimism is an online-only shop, concentrating on independent craft beer from UK breweries and beyond. They've got an ever-changing selection and are likely to have harder-to-find stuff in but it goes fairly fast. Communication regarding delivery was appreciated as well. Delivery charges depend on where you live. Prices are pretty reasonable, considering they're dealing with some fairly high-end stuff.

First order from the these guys and I doubt it will be my last. The website is good, I've been on there a few times now and it appears to be regularly updated, its simple, clear and works very well. I use 2-3 beer sites regularly and buy direct from some breweries who have their own webshop, I don't religiously check prices across all of them, however the prices on here looked pretty fair and competitive.

I liked the choice on here, there were a couple of breweries that I like such as Loka Polly and Torrside that I don't see around on too many other sites. Delivery was prompt and the beers were very well packed. I will be using these guys again for definite.

Online store. Will deliver for free in the local area. Rob, the owner is a friendly and helpful chap. Good range of UK beers - some local, others from further afield, along with a burgeoning array of foreign beers. Many of the most fussworthy craft breweries are represented. Order day 1, delivery day 3 seems to be the norm. £7.99 mainland UK delivery, for a box of 24

Online store review. Service seems fair, I ordered on a Friday morning, wasn’t dispatched until Tuesday but I was in no rush for the beers so wasn’t bothered by this, the beers were well packed and arrived safe so no complaints there. Selection is good with 350+ beers available at the time I ordered, mostly British with a small amount of European. Pricing is very good, the vast majority in line with what I expected, at £7.99 shipping is slightly higher than competitors but reasonable nonetheless. The owner Rob seems nice and eager to please so that’s a plus. Overall would definitely order from again. Also of note the website used to look pretty bad but it has certainly benefited from a redesign launched the same week I ordered.

Service is always prompt and beer arrives intact every time. On rare occasions of a stock issue (once so far out of getting into double figures orders, pretty good for an online beer store!) a much higher value beer of the same style was provided as a substitute (a Thornbridge silver award winner in the World Beer Cup no less). The shop seems to be going from strength to strength of later and the range has really taken off in the last 6 months or so. He is also very approachable by Facebook or by phone and responses are usually instant (I’m a sod for adding things to my order at the last minute). I would suggest the recent poor review with no further explanation was probably left by a competitor and it’s effective zero rate shows a clown just tapping buttons on a computer. All round I can highly recommend Hoptimism - my only mark down would be for ambiance because it’s an online shop so not a physical location - but it still scores consolation prize because the packaging is so good :-D The mystery boxes in particular are always good value with interesting selections unlike some online retailers and most definitely are not just full of end of life leftovers. It’s spurred me to create an account on here to leave a review and look at Rate Beer in more detail so it’s got to be worth a go!

Good online shop - offers discount for local delivery. Not as much of a selection as one might hope, but as its a relatively new shop their stock is ever expanding. Rob who owns it is super nice and chatty and even gave me a couple of free bottles last time I made and order.

I made use of this when I was staying in the area. Good online shop with a good and expanding selection of beers, prices are very competitive and free/discounted delivery by the company itself is offered to the local area above a certain order value. Recommended
