Time Out says

Ben Carwyn’s eponymous Thornbury bottle shop is a pilgrimage all beer enthusiasts must take, no matter what part of the city they hail from. The beer selection is incredible – rarities like Tassie brewery Two Metre Tall’s Seven Years At Sea (a dark ale aged for seven years) and Boatrocker’s Dramjet (a 17.6% imperial stout fortified with Starward Whisky) are just some of the gold you'll find at Carwyn. Just beyond the fridge doors is a bar with 28 beer taps pouring the best suds around and regularly taken over by themes, such as cold-shipped Brooklyn breweries in Australia for the first time. For Good Beer Week in 2018 they somehow managed to get four incredible saisons on tap from Vermont’s Hill Farmstead –’s best brewery in the world the past two years running. Add in regular masterclasses with internationally renowned brewers from breweries like Stone and Firestone Walker and curated beer subscription packs and you’ve got something pretty special.
