Fantastic online retailer, over 1000 beers now, the belgian and german selection is phenomenal

Great site layout also, by country, then by brewery

Prices arent bad, some are higher priced than local offys and others are cheaper

The only downside is lack of american beers, they have alaskan rogue, victory and anchor, but nothing from stone, although saying that the 4 main micros that they do have are fantastic

They also stock a wide range of gift sets and glasses

All in all, a very good retailer, hope to get some christmas brews from them

Just bought a case of rodenbach from them, only £23 for 24 bottles, not bad

I have driven more than 19,000 miles in the UK over the past 15 years. If there is a better bottle shop beer store, I haven't found it. The selection is HUGE. Bottles are arranged by country. Go to their website to see for yourself. Setchey is a small village just south of King's Lynn.

Go early in your trip so you have time to consume your findings. They complement the pub stops; they don't replace them. Bottled ales and real ales are different brews. Don't make the mistake of avoiding bottled choices.

A-It's a giant warehouse!
Q-Awesome selection of European, American and other beers!
S-Great staff, very helpful!
S-Selection is huge.
F-none.
V-Shipping is very fast and a great flat rate of 7 GBP. Prices are a little on the high side, but hey, it's England and it's imported, can't get around that can we?!

Took delivery of an order from BOE 2 weeks ago which I made online

62 different bottled beers and no mistakes and no breakages so pretty impressed with the former in particular !

Choice is as good as it gets in the UK but it can be a tad annoying when you spot a beer you like and 'OUT OF STOCK' is displayed at the bottom of the product! Can't be helped I guess - but it would be less frustrating from a consumer POV to simply not list the beers, or list them in a separate area?

In reference to a previous review in April of this year there are now lots of Mikkeller choices available, however no DFH - as there is no longer a distributor to the UK (I think they are purely focussing on the US market at the moment as they can't keep up with demand at home!)

Have rated atmosphere as 'exceptional' - but in reality this is n/a - that said the website is excellent and easy to navigate, so I guess that could class as atmosphere!?!

Quality I've dropped to 4.0 as I received around 4 bottles (all Odell's) that were around 5 months out of date!

Would have been nice to have been warned - they tasted fine but I felt obliged to drink them in the first few days as opposed to adding them to my cellar for enjoyment over the next 3 to 6 months

That aside - highly reccomended - I'll be doing another order this side of Xmas!

Wonderful place!. Visited this beer shop/werehouse on way home from holiday. Made online orders before & was always please with the selection & service but on visiting in person was amazed that there was loads more beer that were'nt on the website (which i was very happy with) & the owners were very nice people & made us feel welcome.

They have a large selection of beers & most other drinks.
I can't wait for my next visit cos they said they were making the shop bigger! So that means more range of great beers.

Great place for everyone who loves beer! So go visit.

Amazing shop and website. I really love this place. So far i've completed 4 orders without hassle.

Excellent site layout, a list of countries and then a list of breweries. A website which is getting updated constantly too.

Excellent customer service, they have a facebook page where you can contact them quickly and easily, and they are always happy to help.

The selection immense, the best in the UK. Gave 4.5 rather than 5.0 because I think there US selection could be improved, and the lack of Mikellers is disappointing.

Some highlights of my orders include:
-US: Rogue, Stone, Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn, Odell, Dogfish Head, Anchor
-Belgium: all the trappists, St. Bernardus, Piraat, Gulden Draak, Couden Carolous, Dupont, Boon, Cantillon, Delirium Tremens.
-UK: Sam Smiths and many, many more!
-Germany: Weihenstephaner, Paulaner, Andechs, Schneider, Weltenburger.

Visited at last: used them on line and always found the website easy to use, with delivery swift and cheap.

I was in the area of the shop/warehouse and made a detour to find it, £76.00 later I left with 25 new beers and a bottle of rum I'd been after for a while.

The place is down a lane off the A10, no signs on the main road, that we saw anyway, which I thought odd, we drove past it the first time. Anyway, the lighting isn't too bright inside, so no problems with skunking. I was left alone to wander the rows of shelves, although help was available if I'd needed it. My trolley slowly filling up as I ignored my 'wanted list' and grabbed all sorts of goodies that caught my eye. A few Belgian and German glasses about too, there may have been more, but I had a target fixation on the beers!

I notice that some other reviewers have stated the US selection as being small and only big producers, well that has changed a bit, Victory, Stone and Rogue where all on the shelves along with Smuttynose to name but 4 (not so huge US brewers).

Friendly till staff, relaxed atmosphere and certainly the largest beer selection I've seen anywhere in the world so far. If you know of a place with a better/larger choice please feel free to beermail me, I'd love to see where ever you've been that's more impressive.

Very good selection of belgian beers. This place also stocks one of the best selection of american beers in the UK. Shipping is reasonable (7 quid to London). I recently bought the belgian 20 pack of mixed beers and some various US IPA's. The IPAs were fresh and hoppy and I was very grateful given the lack of selection at my local grocery store. The Belgian beers given were rare and varied, and all had a unique flavor. I'm enjoying them immensely. I will be ordering again from them in the near future!
