Our Story

Beer Shop Hanging Sign

Born in 2012, we're an indie retailer of new wave craft beer, traditional ales, lagers and all things wild, aged and funky. We also dip our toes into a small but carefully curated selection of natural wines, ciders and spirits. You can visit our shops and tap rooms in the historic city of St Albans and the vibrant market town of Hitchin in Hertfordshire.

We’re advocates for social modern retail spaces which extend beyond a space to buy and take away. Our bottle shops are a hub where people stop, relax and enjoy some of the finest beers from around the world. Alongside our range of bottles and cans, we sell continually rotating keg and cask beer on tap to drink in or take home.


Our shops stock an extensive range of bottles and cans from world class breweries. Our range is continually evolving with seasonal beers, one-off specials and new up-and-coming breweries. We offer a number of gift options including gift boxes, where you can choose your own beers or ask our staff to help select some suitable styles.

You can also shop online by brewery, style, region or flavour and order for direct local delivery by us across all of Hertfordshire, or courier shipping nationwide by our partner APC.


Our opening hours extend into the evenings, so you can come and unwind with some of the best beers from around the world. We run a number of events across our shops including special beer launches, tap takeovers and tastings. Enjoy our curated range of beer styles both on tap and from our fridges.

We take pride in our attention to providing something for everyone, from the latest craft beer releases, reliable crispy lagers to a range of alcohol or gluten free products.

Bubble Works Brew Co Glass


The techniques and science behind our products has always intrigued us and we’re fascinated with how different flavours are created. In 2018 we decided to delve into this creative world and formed our own brewery where we brew beers exclusively for our shops. This is a small nano brewery producing a limited volume of beer which can be found on tap at our Beer Shops. To find out about upcoming releases and more, check us out on Insta at Bubble Works Brew Co.
