UK Homebrew Shops – Brewing Britain

Directory – UK Homebrew Equipment suppliers – Find you local home brew shop

I thought it might be helpful to post this list of all the UK homebrew shops that I am aware Brewing Britain - Front coverof so that you can find your local home brew shop. This is the list that first appeared in the back of Booze for Free. It is now a few years old and I’m sure parts might be out of date. It would help me, and other home brewers, tremendously if you could let me know if your homebrew shop has been mentioned. If not or you notice one that has sadly, since closed down, then please leave a note in the comments. Cheers and happy brewing!

  2. Hi Andy,

    It’s nice to see someone compile a list of homebrew shops.

    Would you be so kind as to update your records for the homebrew shops in Edinburgh? Alba Homebrew has closed down, and Edina Homebrew has moved and changed it’s name – we are now The Brewstore, 61 South Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9PP. Tel : 0131 667 1296. http://www.brewstore.co.uk and email: shop@brewstore.co.uk

    We’re doing all we can to get as much information about the new shop on the web, as Edina was at the same place for 30 years so we’re trying to get the new information on as many sources as possible and the old address off, to avoid people turning up to the old place! Would be great if you could help us on that one.

    Cheers,
    Shirley.

    • Hello Shirley

      We may have met, I was at the Bo’ness beer festival about 4 years ago and Edina Homebrew were there demonstrating their kits was it you that was handing out tasters?

      Thanks for the up to date details, I will make the changes after I have double checked.

      Cheers
      Andy

  3. James says:

    I have owned this domain name for a number of years and is very specialised and specific for home brewer shops and online presence. It is now for sale if you know of anyone, I could offer a finders fee.

    Thanks
    Jim

  14. Hey Andy,
    Yes I would have been at Boness. We did do a demo on homebrewing and gave out samples.

    Thanks for updating your page – and please do drop in and see us at the new shop if you are around Edinburgh.
    Cheers
    Shirley

  15. Peter Hood says:

    Yo Andy!!
    What a useful list for home brewers! Thanks for adding us!
    I think we supplied some stuff for the original Booze for Free, we’re still going strong and happy to help anyone who needs it..Still brewing and drinking as well, we love it!
    Cheers from Peter, Xian and the other Peter

  16. Bicester Bob says:

    It would be even more helpful if the list could be divided into counties or at least country areas

    • Andy Hamilton says:

      Thanks for the straght forward feedback Bicester bob. You can always press control and F to search for a town or first initals of a postcode. But I’ll bear that in mind, if I get time to update.

  17. Dave Hedges says:

    Thanks for your time setting this up, a great help. It has saved me a lot of time and driving

  18. Peter Beynon says:

    I looked at your list in vain for any shops in the London area.
    Our local branch of Wilkinsons (Harrow) has a moderate range of kits, but I was looking for something more.

    • Andy Hamilton says:

      Me too Peter, short of walking around on foot looking for a homebrew shop in London I can’t find any. I’m sure there must be one, but I’ve yet to find it!

  19. Hi Andy

    Just to let you know that Betterbrew in Rotherham closed down several years ago.

    Stocksbridge Homebrew now stands Rotherham Street Market every Tuesday – Effingham Street, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, S65
    We also stand the following markets:
