Just a bit of a follow up to people's favourite beers.

Now where do you get them?

I've done most of my beer shopping at Northmead Cellars. There website www.worldbeers.com.au if you want to check out their range.

The more you buy the cheaper they get (mixed dozen's etc bring individual price down)

im not affiliated with any bottleshop etc

They boast 300+ different beers.

How does there range/pricing compare to where you shop?

Oh, and when I'm after some Stockade Lager (Australia's first single malt beer if you didn't know) I always buy on Ebay. Their deals can't be beat :lol: :lol: :wacko:

liquor on parade, vintage cellars clovely, kemeny's bondi rd. dan murphy's hurstville (when I'm on the way home from ESB ) are my local faves, but I'm always on the lookout for new ones.

Adelaide has a new boutique beer bottle shop, only just opened, and still finding their feet : The Bar on Gouger St Bottle Shop.

Their aim is to have over 300 in stock at any one time, not there yet and certainly not up to the IBS in Perth yet- but i'll watch them develop with interest, and a welcome addition to the Adelaide take home scene.

I popped in today and walked out with 4 beers from Unibroue, Quebec Canada - Maudite, Eau Benite, Trois Pistoles and Don De Dieu, as well as a Gouden Carolus Classic and a Maudite glass for good measure. They have yet to get the computerised pricing system worked out - so offered me $30 for the lot. I did not feel inclined to argue :).

Be interesting to see what the real prices are like. You can always try telling Amy that Stuart the scottish brewer sent you - not that that will do you any good :p - she will probably only say "who?" :ph34r:

They are a bit light on for English beers still, but for them there is always Cellarbrations on Greenhill Rd, Glenside.

FWIW I have no affiliation with either grog shop - I'm just another slut for beer.

I can't be bothered spending my money on overpriced crap from overseas. Maybe if I want to try and clone something I will buy a stubby or 2. Last time i purchased anything was a Warsteiner. That was about 6 months ago.

I believe the IBS has some 4 packs of Stockade in a North-facing-window "Ageing"..... :wacko:

Neither can I johnno, neither can I.
I suppose it all depends how you define "overpriced" and "crap".
Horses for course I suppose, and I'm supposed to be some kind of Scotsman :lol:
That said, I'm more than happy with my 5 beers at $6 a throw, and I have never yet tasted a crap brew from the Quebecois "Belgians" at Unibroue.

Warsteiner? Now, there's another story :D

wee stu what i probably mean is the crap overinflated prices. I'm sure a lot of the beers are fine.

cheers

Amatos in Leichardt has a huge range of beer in their cool room
www.amatos.com.au

I only discovered it cause a mate moved in up the road from it and most of what they have on their website looked to be in their coolroom

Spent about 20 minutes or more in there looking at them all before it got too cold :)

Prices seem about the going rate.

The Liquor Superstore at Lutwyche (QLD)

Not a bad range, probably 200-300 different types of beer.

I agree. I have trouble justifying paying the equivalent of $90 a case for wine, let alone beer. Maybe I'm a Scottish Jew?

That said, I do have a soft spot for Gulden Draak and Chimay Bleu. Never by the case tho.

Down in the Illawarra we're starved for choice. Near me is only Theo's at Bulli and Vintage Cellars at Thirroul who carry anything other than CUB/Toohey/Haagen.

In Perth:

http://www.internationalbeershop.com.au
Many agree it is the largest specialist beer store in Australia. Well over 300 to choose from when I left.

In London:

http://www.pitfieldbeershop.co.uk
Nice selection, though very out of date website. Ignore the list on it.

http://www.utobeer.co.uk
Nice little market stall with a good selection. Once again, out of date website.

Outside London (mail-order UK):
http://www.beersofeurope.co.uk/
I havent ordered from here but know people who have, and were very happy with the service.

http://www.onlyfinebeer.co.uk/
Same as above.

With a combined Scottish, Latvian, Lithuanian heritage, I really have to wonder where my parsimonious gene went.

I am actively looking forward to the 750ml bottle of 3 Monts Bier de Garde I am saving up for.

Maybe I have to, reluctantly, admit it - no longer just a beer slut, now a slutty beer snob :eek: :party:

Had to be dragged out of this store kicking and screaming and never got the Visa card again for the rest of the trip. :angry: Has to be seen to be believed

Bier Tempel is another goodie though I don't seem to be able to locate their website these days.

A little sycophantic to the tourist for my liking though. Also stock a small range of homebrew kits (mainly brewferm). Actually bought and lugged home a kit of their framboisen about 5 years ago. Turned out not a bad kit framboisen after all that.
