Salthouse Bottles is a (very) small shop, established 2016, in Brockley, South East London. Before opening Salthouse Bottles we spent 10 years managing pubs serving well-kept real ale and, in the latter years, craft beers from keg and bottle. As we looked to open our own shop we wanted to celebrate independent business and to offer our customers the best of beer.
We stock independent UK breweries that produce consistently high-quality beers. There is a solid core range, particularly from those London breweries we know best, plus a weekly rotation of guest brews from our favourite breweries across the UK and occasionally abroad.
We opened the shop with a counter-pressure growler-fill machine on the counter and a sampling sink in the centre of the shop, but as the shop has needed more space for stock and social distancing, these have moved out, with the growlers now being pre-filled in the cellar of our nearby bar, Joyce (still under counter-pressure). Joyce is a simple neighbourhood bar that pours some of the most popular beers, wines & ciders from Salthouse Bottles.
The shop also stocks a range of natural wines from small grower-makers, real/fine ciders from the West Country, Kent, Sussex and Suffolk, and a small selection of quality spirits from independent distilleries. We have always sold bread from Little Bread Pedlar, but since the arrival of Covid we have added a small selection of good quality food essentials - dairy & cheese, pickles, fresh & dried pasta, preserves, flour, etc.
