Probably Melbourne's best selection of craft beers in one shop. Pretty easy to get to via tram from the CBD.

Lots of USA, UK, Belgian, NZ & Australian beers. Most of the beers are unrefrigerated. Two smallish fridges at the back of the shop. If you're looking for Cantillon in Melbourne this is a good place to try.

Most Fridays they usually have a tasting featuring a different brewery, starting around 5:00pm. Great way to sample a breweries range.

Long store, shelving on both sides with two aisles around centre shelving. Fridge in the back corners.

Nice looking shop, decent presentation, ok feel about it. Maybe a little bright with the down lights.

Good range of pretty well most things that are available here. Nice glassware for sale and some books. Lack of refrigeration of hoppier styles as it seemed like it was just dome Aussie micros kept cold, with an eclectic choice of bigger bottles.

Service was ok, guy had a bit of a chat but I think he preferred the Sunday paper.

Selection is very wide. Arranged by producing country. Probably one of the best for British beer selection. Did seem a little slow at getting the latest shipments.

Prices were reasonable. Some things were cutting edge, pthers, like St Lamvinus at $32 were on the expensive side. Old Mikkeller stock is very expensive and I suspect will be there a long time.

Good store that could do some small thing to he even better.
