Slowbeer

Australia’s first beer-only bottleshop, Slowbeer is a veritable Aladdin’s Cave for beer lovers. Crammed onto its shelves are around 900 craft beers sourced from all over the world, including around 250 homegrown varieties, among them popular favourites and rare, limited release longnecks.

Originally the online beer arm of Cloudwine Cellars, Slowbeer soon demanded its own venue and opened in Hawthorn in 2009 before moving to its current location in Richmond in April 2012. Run by young beer enthusiast Chris Menichelli and his team, it’s a beery take on the slowfood movement that started in Italy with its emphasis on regional character, quality ingredients and appreciation of the culinary experience. Dedicated to the promotion of better beer, it’s worth allowing yourself plenty of time to browse everything from crazy Scandinavian, American and Asian creations to the latest Aussie brews.

There are regular tastings as well as a range of specialist beer glasses to take home for those who take pride in how their tipple is delivered. And, as of mid-2010, Slowbeer became the first bottleshop in Australia to offer customers the chance to take home draught fresh beer in growlers.

At its new home, it has expanded its offering further to include four taps and the opportunity to drink your beers on premises for a small corkage charge, either inside or on the footpath at the front. That's not all; should you require a little sustenance with your choice of beer, you can select from choice nibbles, from artisan cheeses and olives to smoked and cured meats.
