Welcome to The International Beer Shop!
A big welcome from the team at the International Beer Shop! This web site is dedicated to the beer drinkers of Australia who take their favourite drop seriously.
The International Beer Shop was Australia's first dedicated beer shop, opening our doors back in 2002 and collecting as much quality beer under one roof as is possible. We are dedicated to sourcing and stocking the very best premium beers from the world’s finest breweries, and pride ourselves on storing and presenting our beers in the best possible condition. Our shelves have grown over the years and now carry anywhere from 600 to 1000+ different beers at any one time - arguably Australia's largest range of local and international beer.
We have literally dozens of new arrivals every month, ranging from the newest craft beers to old favourites we haven't seen for a while - so there’s always something new and interesting to try at our shop. High stock turnover and minimal stock holdings means everything on our shelves is as fresh as it can possibly be. We pride beer quality over all else and we constantly check our stock for quality issues - if it doesn't meet our very high standards then we will either send it back or drop the price significantly to what we believe it is worth. Being a completely independent bottle shop means that if we aren't happy with a brand we will drop it and replace it with something better. We also take special orders for beer - if there's something you want which we don't have, just let us know and we'll do our best to track it down for you
Our staff are incredibly passionate about beer and love helping our customers find their new favourite drop, find the perfect gift, or just have a chat about beer. We are also happy to help you if you're planning a beer tasting event but don't know where to start, we'll take you through your options and help you figure out the right mix for your needs.
Our mission is, and always will be, to increase the public appreciation of the world's oldest, most popular alcoholic drink, to pull it back from the dark ages of mass produced, flavourless swill and give it back the respect it truly deserves.
"To clink glasses of a freshly made, seasonal beer, preferably in a pub or garden, with friends and perhaps new acquaintances, is a ritual that makes every participant feel good. We may not rationalise this at the time, but it gives us a sense of place in our common community and our time in the tides of life on earth. This is a way to value beer and treat it with respect". - Michael Jackson
