Fin  (1146) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | March 31, 2013
We visited here on Sunday 31st March 2013, we walked from the Southampton Arms which took about 15-20 mins. This is a very impressive beer store with a huge range of really interesting beers. I am a very regularly to be found in ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores at Goring, probably at least once a month, it is also v.impressive, though I think that on overall selection and price in particular this place wins. I picked up some really interesting beers and was v.pleased that I didn’t have to shell out an arm and a leg. This is a nice place, quite how they cram all of the beer in is beyond me (bit like Jacks on that front) If even remotely close to the area I think I would make a point of coming here, really impressed with this place.

I’ll say it: best bottle shop in London. To start, the selection is outstanding. Lots of British stuff, plenty of Belgian, a whole wall of German, and lots of American. (There are plenty of other countries in there, too.) The American selection was quite impressive. There was stuff in here I couldn’t even buy when I lived in New York City! Lost Abbey/Port Brewing, Odell, and Big Sky are in there, to name a few. (None of these beers are distributed in New York.) The shop itself is tiny but the space is utilized to the max. Thankfully, while I was in there there was never more than one other customer. It could get cramped very quickly, I think. And what I liked the most was that all the bottles were labled with the price. (This is not the case at Utobeer.) And the prices are better than decent. Some real bargains can be found, but for the most part the prices are fair. Sure, Kris Wines is a bit outside the city center, but there is a bus stop right nearby, and the walk from Euston Station is only about 30 minutes. I can’t wait to go back.

Note well: there are two guys who usually work here: Kris and another fella. Kris speaks perfect English and is very helpful. The other guy’s English is minimal.

700 bottles – yes, I really can believe the number after having been to the shop and walked through the tight passages between the shelves. The shop displays a fine selection of beers from interesting American, Belgian, German, Scandinavian, Dutch etc. breweries. They are all very well arranged and lined up. Most impressive is the selection on British, and especially, London microbreweries. Easily the best beer bottle shop I have been to so far. Smiling and friendly service. Btw, thanks for the umbrella! (visited, 06.11.2012).

The best beer shop in London, hands down. The location is a little strange, tucked in a corner of Camden/Islington that’s not too-well traveled (by me, at least). The store is small and pokey, half of it devoted to wine. The beers are organized roughly by country The UK options are quite good, lots of Kernel, Marble, rare Brewdogs, interesting Scottish beers, some smaller southern micros. The American options are interesting - Bruery, Lost Abbey, Clown Shoes, Maine Beer, Rogue etc. There’s also plenty of Mikkeller, De Molen, De Struise, Nogne and many others available. The last time I visited, the shop had a number of different Cantillon offerings. Kris is very helpful, and always happy to make suggestions. The prices are the best in the city for the quality on offer. Overall, highly recommended.

Very small store, big selection, minor in service. I took my time in here, and searched the shelves for the better part of a halfhour, without any questions from the man behind the counter, and when i asked him a question, he woulld know just as much as Manuel from Fawlty Towers.

Scopey  (681) Croydon, England | May 3, 2011
Brilliant beer shop in north London. One of the best, if not the best in London. Awesome selection of UK, Belgian, Danish, Dutch, American, German.....beers. They have a lot of stuff here you just can’t get elsewhere, in particular the lambic selection is really good. Smallish place, stuffed full of beer - classic Aladdin’s cave. It’s just a shame I live in south London......

Camons  (596) Hasselager, Denmark | January 11, 2014
Small store but with a great selection of both local british beers, aswell as some Danish, Belgium, American etc. beers. Good prices for the local stuff ( wich was what i was looking for) and rather expensive for imported beers. Good knowable service by Kris. Abit out of the way, but pretty easy to hit by bus from Euston st./St. Pancras where my hotel was.

Superb little drinks-market in the middle of nowhere; great selection of british beers plus a nice range of the usual suspects from Denmark and the US. Worth the walk from Kentish Town!
