Owner Andrew Morgan believes it’s time for the average punter to have access to a comprehensive range of award winning beers and experimental brews, rather than having to choose from the limited selections in supermarkets and traditional pubs.
”People should never be forced to drink bland, corporate, mass market beer and everything offered in The Bottle Shop comes with a genuine seal of approval”, he says. “We’ve tasted a lot of beers and those in The Bottle Shop are the best Britain and the world has to offer. We’ll be offering a craft beer festival every trading day of the year.”
“A craft-beer festival every day of the year”
Encouraging people to ‘think beyond the pint glass’ is a guiding principle of The Bottle Shop. The range and styles of beers on offer will encourage customers to try something new and it’s our firm policy to never stereotype when it comes to serving men and women by assuming it’s a pint for the fella and a fruit beer for the lady. Those days are long gone.
“There’s so much more to beer than what’s available in the average pub. Beers that can be shared by couples, beers for the connoisseur and a fantastic range of artisan lagers that will befriend the most loyal fizzy-beer drinker.”

Microbreweries and artisan-brewed beers have bucked the recession, with sales up by 10% in the last year alone. Consumers are making more informed choices about what they drink and, as a result, the UK bottled beer market grew by 50% from 2008 to 2009.
