Good bottle shops in Perth metro area

Discussion in 'Australia & New Zealand' started by LittleCreature, Apr 13, 2012.

  1. I'm putting together a list of bottle shops in the Perth metro area that have a good range of craft beer. So far this is what I have got:


    Big Brews Liquor - Warnbro

    Cellarbrations Carlisle

    Cellar on Preston (new name and location, I believe)

    Corkers - Vic Park

    Dan Murphy’s - various

    Greenmount Liquor

    International Beer Shop

    Liquor Barons Mt Lawley

    Mane Liquor

    The Beer Store - Morley

    The Freo Doctor Liquor Store

    I haven't actually been to all of the above, particularly those NOR. If you know of any other good liquor stores that deserve to be on this list, please reply so I can check them - this is for a Beer & Brewer publication and I don't want any good liquor stores to miss out.
     
  2. i haven't updated it in over a year but a belgian-beers-in-perth s/sheet i made might help
    https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B1Gv4oBV9x59MzEwMjRlMWMtY2FkMS00YTE1LWFkZTEtODhmODE5MGJmY2M5&hl=en
    off top of my head, como liquor store (corner canning hwy and monash ave in como, very close to the como hotel but not the bottle store at the hotel) is really good, especially for a small store.

    angelo st liquor barons is also quite good -- its the old cellar on preston (cellar on preston is gone)

    both these stores are quite good, not on IBS/carlisle/mane/freo doctor level but they do carry new seppo stuff and occasionally some lambics, and stuff like rochefort etc is always there. probably on the same level as corkers vic park -- all 3 good stores in their own right, but if you live nearby then for a 'local' they are fantastic
     
  3. add to that:
    the windsor hotel has an off-license attached that is again very good for a local -- always rochefort and some other decent stuff. probably just a notch below corkers/como/angelo st in terms of range & quality -- and rochefort10 (i'll just call them R10s) $9, cheapest i've seen

    and at the same level is the liquor barons on archer st in carlisle -- Cellarbrations carlisle down the road is much better, but the liquor barons on archer has really turned around, the cheapest R10s in perth along with windsor (both $9 recently) and plenty of other good stuff

    don't think you'd get much 'craft service' at liquor barons on archer st though, whereas at como and angelo st (and to a lesser extent corkers) you definitely would

    corkers vic park is lukie's old stomping ground i believe?

    other stores that, last time i checked, had similar sort of range/quality to liquor barons on archer:
    - old bridge cellars (north fremantle)
    - the botanica bottle store in innaloo
    - devine cellars inglewood
    - tuart hill liquor store (has a website)
    - cellarbrations on parry avenue (bullcreek)
    - 1st choice in jandakot (might be the only 1st choice store still interested in decent beer; or has it dropped off also?). 1st choice riverton is ok actually... and bicton and bentley still have a few things left from their glory days

    even the raffles bottle store (canning hwy on the river) has some decent stuff, but very little turnover i think...
    and craft service is highly unlikely. hell they even put their dom perignon in the prime viewing spot (in the sun) as demanded by the rep!

    It's a Moet product. It's not about the taste, it's about the sale/marketing.

    "- 1st choice in jandakot (might be the only 1st choice store still interested in decent beer; or has it dropped off also?). "

    My local. Not too bad at all. Decent range of Germans, Belgians, Brits. And 20% off for a mixed sixer. They've been flogging off Tripel Karmeliet for $6 for many months now. Minus 20% = $4.80 each. I'm there at least once a week. Keeps me going between IBS, Cellarbrations Carlisle, Mane visits.

    Been here and although it is very small, you will find some good beers you can't get from Dan Murphys or 1st Choice.
