Reseved some beers via Twitter and was welcomed into the shop by friendly owner Kris. He’s very knowledgeable and personable and this level of service makes you want to stay for longer. The sourdoug. Ciderbread on the counter smelt fantastic, wish I had space for some. Selection good for suburban shop but difficult to compete with larger competitor nearby in terms of space available. There are different beers at each though so please do visit both!I came away with a good selection of beers and a lighter wallet.

Excellent place, lots of choice with decent prices. I could spend ages in there browsing. Krishnan is a really friendly guy and knowledgable. An excellent experience, if only I was rich, I would have took a trolley full.

Made one of my annual visits in March 2011. Range is even better than before with the owners son who is very enthusiastuic driving it forward. Usual selection of British including the wonderful Brew Dog plus some foreign including Americans. Friendly helpful and not to be missed if you are in Birmingham. Has an active page on Face Book
Outstanding selection of beers from all over the world, including some rare stuff. The staff is very polite and helpful. The prices are normal. This is surely one of the top-3 bottle shops in Birmingham!
Why can’t all off-licences be like this: over a hundred unusual, interesting beers from Britain, Europe and the rest of the world? The proprietor told me he’d been in the speciality beer business for thirty years and clearly knows his subject. A range of about thirty Belgian beer glasses, including the iconic Pawel Kwak.
Long-standing bottled beer shop with a very keen owner who over the past few years has striven to bring new beers to Birmingham - both English/Scottish ales, and those from US and Europe. Has always had a good selection of Belgians, but now also a large Brewdog range, US, and the forefront of the European craft scene - Mikkeller, To Ol, Nogne, etc. Good selection of spirits also including Japanese whiskeys. On the 45 and 47 bus route from centre of town.
Also sells locally-made beer bread (the ale used changes each week) on Thursdays.

Update. Recently doubled their beers. Owner and son are really friendly and always happy to have a chat. Worth the slight detour from the city centre.
English beers were a bit slacking, but a full Brewdog selection, Flying Dog and Goose Island and a a vast selection of Belgium and German. Winner.
