The BottleShop was founded in 2010 with a belief that people should have the opportunity to drink amazing beer - better than they could get in pubs and supermarkets. We started with two shelves in The Goods Shed and now have bars in London, Canterbury and Margate. We also import and distribute beer to over 800 customers across the UK and only work with breweries we think are #WorldClass - these include Green Flash, Alpine, Left Hand, Modern Times, Mikkeller, Omnipollo, Dugges, To Øl, The Kernel and Cloudwater - to name a few.
We travel the world seeking out the best breweries and beers to bring to our customer base, some of these may challenge your palate, some may even excite a gin drinker to try beer. We are proud representatives. WorldClass also applies to the service we offer our customers in our bars.
Thanks to our chilled freight transport and fully refrigerated warehouse, we can now guarantee 100% #ColdChain beer from brewery to bar. Good news for brewers, good news for you. Just as fresh milk is better than UHT, so fresh beer benefits from low temperatures that keep it bright, vibrant and complex. We’ve invested in ColdChain because the difference is jaw-dropping. Try it and see.
It’s been a fantastic journey to educate and inspire people about the need to keep beer cool throughout its life. It’s standard practice in America and this allows brewers to create massively detailed, fragile, incredibly tasty beers that ambient storage will destroy in hours/days/weeks. It’s like comparing fresh milk vs UHT milk - both are ‘milk’ but once you’ve tried the fresh stuff, you’re never going back. Refrigeration allows us to preserve the quality of the beer - in TV terms it’s #4KBeer. The sharpest, most detailed version of the beer ever experienced. For many, we’re used to HD (high definition) or even SD (standard definition) beer. Maybe these were #4KBeer once, but they’ve lost their detail and, though probably still enjoyable, they’re not what they were. Our #ColdChain will ensure every beer we sell to our customers whether online, in our bars or to our wholesale customers is #4KBeer, #ColdChain and #WorldClass - guaranteed.
