Great alternative to pubs, great drinking, awesome & knowledgeable staff

All local Micro brewery beers are found here & the guest draught beers sell out fast! Staff very friendly & knowledgeable.

Staff are friendly and very knowledgable - it's great to discover new beers and tastes.


It was a busy Saturday afternoon and I popped into the shop looking for a birthday present for my dad. How glad was I that I did! FABULOUS staff and customer service, and they don't make you feel foolish for knowing nothing about beer or how to make it. After quite a few samples, and a long friendly chat, I walked out with beer for me and a homebrew kit for my dad.

Really great shop, and a welcome addition to Balham's indie-retailer scene. 

Great customer service, endlessly helpful and always stocked with the best selections of beer.

This shop is amazing. A really good selection of beer from all over the world, much of which you won't find anywhere else. Friendly and well informed staff. You can also get fresh draft to take home (in the appropriate container!) or drink it at the shop and sit outside on the German beer festival style tables and benches. The same goes for any bottled beer. The shop also does regular tastings often hosted by the brewers themselves.

The local beer shop but not just a shop as you can sit and have a taster too! So good my American boyfriend went back multiple times trying different IPAs so he could choose his favourites to take back to the USA and spread the word about how awesome London beer is. They are always helpful and friendly, and I love going in and trying new local beers I havent had before.

Best selection of craft beer south of the river. The staff really know their stuff and its not just a pub. The in-store pumps and outside benches have made it one of the best places to hang out this summer in the local area

A great range of beers; friendly & knowledgeable staff AND awesome tastings, talks & events. Great place for the beer novice and seasoned pro alike!

Great selection of beers and very helpful staff, in a good location too!

Fantastic concept. Great staff. Really helpful when I asked to try something new, they really went the extra mile and talked me through literally every beer in the fridge! I will be back!

A very welcome addition to up-and-coming Hildreth Street selling a wide variety of the best new beers from small breweries all over the world. I am a massive fan of the micro brewery revolution so this shop is very welcome. It specialises in good ales, lagers etc especially the increasingly popular Indian and American Style Pale Ales, hoppy and served chilled. The owner really knows his stuff and although you pay for your passion, you can walk out with a fine selection of ales to stock up your fridge, and stay away from the dull, cold fizzy dishwater from Carling etc. forever more, hopfully (;-))

Looking forward to some mixed case discounts or loyalty card but wishing these guys luck and a long future!
