nate2g  (1290) Boomtown!, Australia | September 26, 2009| Updated August 9, 2012
Placed an order online with Purvis and it arrived at my doorstep in Brisbane two days later. Fast, efficient service and a great range of beers available, and there’s always something new on offer. Reasonably priced as well. Cheers guys! Update August ’12. Visited the Bridge Rd. shop. Nice big space with a lot of bottles here. Can’t be sure on what sort of turnover they have but some beers looked past their best before date (PA, IPAs and the like). Stick to local beers and you should be safe.

This place gets my vote for best bottle shop in Melbourne even ahead of Slowbeer, which is just down the street. Much larger selection and better organized. Friendly service. Best stop in town for bottles.

Excellent bottle shop. I’m happy I wen t here, even though it’s quite some way from CBD! Lot’s of interesting Australian micros and staff that really knows what they are talking about.

I’d say this is the best bottle shop in Melbourne. They have pretty much every micro from these parts and turn them over quickly. Lots of English stuff, very helpful staff. Pity it’s out in the ’burbs.

Good lay out to this store. Nice range including some stuff I haven’t seen at other places. Very good range of Aussie craft and well priced. Service was ok but the guy and girl didn’t really know their beers without having to look them up, although in saying that, recommended some decent selections when I did ask for a particular style. Cool place

Internet order. Easy to deal with, efficient and chucked in some glasses for me. The prices are a bit higher than the other big beerstore in melbourne, but these guys have a few things in that that store doesn’t. Easily one of the best in Australia. Would deal with again.

Have made a few internet orders and been in the shop a few times. Great selection but can get out of date bottles easily. Especially the UK stuff and less interesting stuff. Adam is great to deal with and knows his beers. Can be a bit pricey on imports but the Australian stuff is well priced. One of the best stores in Australia.

Great selection of beers from around the world, most recently a bunch of dupont and brew dog. If you’re after new rates, this is the place to come.. they have a fantastic selection of aussie micros and brittish ales. Prices are fair, but you get a 10% discount if you buy more than six which is a solid deal. They have beer tasting sessions occasionally, and the staff like to have a chat about the nice beers. Its a bitch to get to/from from the city though if you’re carrying a box of beers.

Takes a while to get to if you’re not driving and coming from the CBD but when you arrive, it’s totally worth it. The selection is huge. Two full walls with a couple of extra shelves to go with them. The prices rival anywhere else in Melbourne (most prices in most places are about the same) The guys know their beer and are always keen for a chat about beer. I really love this place and would love it right next to my apartment in Rio. I’m totally going back the next time I’m in Melbourne.

highlandlad  (52) Blue Mountains, Australia | June 12, 2006
The east coast’s best bottle shop by a country mile. First place in Australia where I’ve found twice as many new rates as I could carry. Bought around 20 singles and could have bought at least 20 more if I had another pair of hands for carrying. Just as an example, this place had four different Ethiopian beers. (If Ethiopia is anything like Tanzania, that’s probably two more than the average Ethiopian bottle shop.) There was also a good selection of Brits and Belgians, and a huge range of Victorian micros and a few from WA. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. They know about RateBeer and they appreciate our support. The good news for us interstaters is that a mail order service is planned in the next four months. The shop is a bugger to get to but very much worth it. I took the train (15 min wait, 30 min journey, 10 min walk after asking for directions) there and a tram back. The tram stop is 30 metres from the shop so it’s the best option.
