What a fantastic place for beer lovers, with all walls covered in beer from all over the world, all kinds. The setting is simple and you may not even be able to sit down on busy weekends. All the better, mix in with the crowds that gather in front of the shop, and take the time to find your new favourite beer - watch out for the ever changing ones on tap, that often provide a hidden gem!


My second favourite place on the Bermondsey Beer Mile! Again, not an actually brewery, but a shop featuring a variety of alternating breweries and A GAZILLION BOTTLES. It's not really a gazillion, but it damn well feels it. On a warm day, there's a tiny space out front for beer patrons to stand, as the inside is a little stifling. I imagine, on a slightly cooler day, the inside top would be quite cozy. This is a place I would visit again. 

Just FYI, the loos are a bit rank. I suppose you can't expect too much with port-a-loos though. 


The Bottle Shop is one of a kind! It's a great central location with an unbelievable selection of unique beers, if you can't find a beer you like here, you won't find a beer you like anywhere. Each week they have a tap takeover that allows you to try a wide range of new and unique beers on tap! If you like craft beer, be sure to check out The Bottle Shop. 


I’ve never thought high enough of beer to even consider you could be a connoisseur of this golden drink. My visit to The Bottle Shop was kind of an eye opener. I know London craft beer scene has been growing in the past few years and I’ve been to a few decent beer shops before, but The Bottle Shop is like no other! You don’t have to be a connoisseur to shop in there, the super friendly staff will talk you through their selection and pick something for you that won’t disappoint. Even if you don’t like beer, I recommend visiting them for the bottles and cans, the art works on majority of them are absolutely gorgeous! But it doesn’t end with the labels, the selection is mind blowing. I’ve tried two milky stouts from Wiper & True during my visit and they were both great, completely new flavours for me. The only downside is the location, it's on a way to nowhere and a bit dodgy to walk to on dark winter afternoons.


This well stocked craft beer shop is suited just under the arches of a railway bridge in Bermondsey. With over 300 differentbeer bottles/cans from around the world, you won’t know what to choose to buy. The stuff working there is really helpful, having extensive knowledge on the beers & will assist you to choose the ones that match your taste. Mostly visit for beer shopping but they also rent the place for private parties/meeting and drinking on site.


The Bottle Shop is the epitome of the London Craft Beer scene right now - run by passionate beer fans, providing advice on, and access to, some of the best beer in the world. Thankfully, in an industry that (like wine and coffee) can quite easily become 'snobby', they're also experts in the field of 'judging their audience' - if you just want a simple recommendation, they'll help you find something that suits your preferences, but equally, if you want to discuss the influence of New Zealand's Nelson Sauvin on the latest experimental hop cultivars, they'd be happy to oblige. This approachability and expertise has served them well in their relationships with the top British brewers - their tap list will often feature super-limited edition beers, with them pouring one of only maybe five or six kegs produced (This week's release of Cloudwater's DIPA v4/5 being the perfect example). A perfect mid (ish) point on the Bermondsey Beer Mile, pop in and learn a thing or two. Or just drink some delicious beer.
