For whatever reason, I was expecting something much bigger. Still an impressive selection of local and import craft and even some obscure lagers from various parts of the world. Good prices too. Easy to get to on transit.

The best bottle shop I’ve been too in London! Quite small shop, but completely packed with bottles. They have lots of international beers and some from the US or Scandinavia were quite interesting, but this is definitely for the British stuff! So much interesting beer from small, modern English breweries to choose from, I was a bit overwhelmed at first. Prices are decent, not low, but suitable. The only little downside is the distance to the city centre, but overall this is the type of bottle shop I’m always searching for.

For me - this place is a mofo to get to, Northern Line sweaty packed tube to Camden and then a fight to get on a packed bus (does anyone remember bus queues rather than bus mills?) however once you arrive in this small packed to the rafters with beers shop, it’s normally worth it. As so many have said before Kris is very friendly and helpful chap and I’ve often known him to thrown is a freebie or two when buying a fair few bottles. It can be hit and miss for new beers here - I’ve walked out with 25 and I’ve walked out with 3, but always something. Love this place just wish it was more conveniently located.

This is something of a gem of a shop (which sets it apart from neighbouring establishments - it’s not in the nicest of areas tbh). But alas for my first visit, last week, it was Kris’ day off and his Dad was looking after the place so I wasn’t able to experience what other reviewers have described (ie Kris’ helpfulness and welcome). But I was able to find myself a good selection of local beers, at reasonable prices, selected from their very good range (with great international selection too). I will have to go back when I’m in the area with a car as could have bought a lot more, but only had my backpack...

I visited Kris Wines on 25 July 2016. The walk from Kentish Towm station took me around 10 minutes. I found the shop really exciting. The amazing selection of beers made me happy, and I was particularly happy to find three different types of my beloved Belgian Delirium Tremens (£3.50/bottle). Kris was polite and welcoming.

Outstanding selection, with the owner sourcing rare and odd beers. Ask for some advice! I’ve found some absolute gems in here!

Good shop, although I feel it’s a bit expensive. Maybe that’s just London prices for ya.

This is the place that got me into beer. Seriously, this place is great. Before all the craft beer bottle shops had opened up around London, it was just Kris and his insane supply. It’s like going to a library of beer. I bought my first Imperial Brown Stout from the Kernel Brewery here. I can’t really say any more.

Visited the 9th September 2015 - Good small place near to Camden and Kentish town. Good store really clear and with a good beer selection. Domination of UK beer but there are also beers from Europe and also from US and that’s really find. Good price for London and also for the selection. Not so excessive when you see some rareties... The owner is friendly and welcoming. I need to go back with more time to spend there. Very good beer shop, I recommend it.
Visited to find some treasure... Price are very competitive, certainly the best price in London. Very friendly as usual. I was happy to find what I’m looking for! Thanks! And see you soon!
