– The background story


Let’s get it straight, we can’t grow a beard, our jeans don’t have turn ups but we sometimes do wear check shirts. We don’t call ourselves hipsters and we have never tried to brew our own ale. But what we do share with these people is a passion for exploration. On holiday, we rarely try the same beer twice. A trip a few years ago took us to Australia. We went as Premium/World beer drinkers and came back loving an IPA. Since travels across the world have allowed us to expand our palate. is based on four simple principles that we believe the modern beer drinker requires:

Unique and Personalised – We don’t want the norm, I am unique and my beer should be too

Status and Recognition – Posting and Boasting, I want to try before my friends and I want them to know

Time is of the essence – We want the above, but if I can trust an expert, I will

Collaboration – We want to share with a community of likeminded people

Here at Ale Shopper, we will supply you with beers from around the UK and further afield. We’ll give you tasting notes and some background on the brewer, you then let us know what you preferred and we will tailor your package to your taste.

Proost, Yamas, Sante, Cheers
