Love this place! Nice looking shop, with a cosy feel. Used to shop alot at purvis until i found them. They only stock beer, which is cool in itself but no crap mainstream beer at all. Range isnt perhaps as big as purvis but prices are so cheap. Seem to go through stock alot quicker too, which means its fresher. They can get & have anything that is available in oz. Obviously stuff like mikkeller is expensive but cheap compared to other shops. Recently started doing growlers, which is crazy! Haven’t had one yet but definitely will. Tastings sound excellent as well but seem to fill up quickly, so i missed out last time. Have to be quick for rare beer tastings i suppose. Surely the best beer store in oz?

Physical shop, basic and small. A little hit and miss with customer service 10/10 one day 5/10 another. Best selection and advice for your tastes. Price excellent. Overall, I never thought I would be excited about buying my beer, now I am.

A tram down FlindersSt, BridgeRd from the city. Great range of beers and I always find I can get a beer I never seen before. None of the ordinary beers you can get anywhere. Prices are about as good as you are going to get in Australia. The guys have tasted almost everything they have in stock. International Beer Shop in Perth ’maybe’ the only place that has a larger number of beers offer.

Has a bigger range than I’ve seen so far in Australian specialist beer sellers, and if their website is to be believed they sell about everything available to Australia, though clearly not all at the same time. Knowledgeable staff, as you’d expect, and better prices than I’ve seen for most of their stock.

Rating per website. Lots of interesting beers, usually a few dollars cheaper than my local up here. Customer service is pretty good, friendly and helpful. They do have a small problem in that some of the beers on the website might not have been updated as out of stock but this is a new venture so I guess they are still ironing out the kinks. Best selection in Australia and very easy to deal with. Recommended.

[12/09]Physical shop, haven’t tried online yet. There didn’t seem to be 700 beers, at least on the shelves. Pretty good selection of Australian micros and well-established good beers. Quite a lot of emphasis on the modern "if less is more, imagine how much more more is" etched bottle and faux-distressed typography labels. No _popular_ rubbish beers. Seemed understaffed, but these things happen in small shops in the run-up to Christmas. Where I could compare, prices were without exception below what I’ve seen elsewhere. [82]

New location. Now has staff, an on-premises licence and food, but nothing that was good has been lost. Stock is somewhat curated in a worthwhile way. Staff know plenty. Prices still very keen. Plain dealing. Shame it’s on the wrong side of town for me.

Easy to find as you get off the train from Melbourne. Good selection of imported beers and lots of Aussie micros available. I generally don’t worry about pricing so just made up a dozen or so and got them to ship it home to arrive when I got home. All good!!
