Tucked away in deepest suburbia on Kingsleigh Road, the Beer Shop has long been something of a hidden oasis in this part of Stockport. It was opened 2011 by Dean Hilton as a retirement project. This rapidly got out of hand and Dean finally retired in September 2020 when the business was taken over by ex-pat Finn, Markus Sorsa. Since Markus took over he has refocused the Beer Shop so that is more of a bar and a bit less of a shop. That’s not to say there isn’t a good range of beers to take away. The focus here is mainly bottles and cans from local breweries plus a decent range of German bottled beers. Two to three cask beers are normally available. The plan is to offer one dark beer and two pales. These are supplemented by three keg beers – two from local brewers and one a German lager. There has also been a refurbishment and redecoration. There’s lots of natural wood and mixed furniture, with brightly coloured fabrics adding a 60s vibe. It’s all very pleasant and comfortable. In the warmer months there is also outside drinking at the front. NB as of January 2020 the pub is CASHLESS, ie it accepts CARDS ONLY.
