My contact with Hop Shop in Plymouth began when i decided to make wine for our family. I found that the staff were extremely helpful and delivery was fast and reasonably priced. I went on to try my hand at fruit wines and have had some very good results with the help of Peter at Hop Shop. Even when i... More

Went ahead and purchased the barrel cleaned sterolised and filled the barrel with fermented lager that had just finished fermenting. When priming the tap started leaking. Returned it to the Hop Shop, The... More

Sent on an errand to pick up a box of goodies as a birthday present for an old friend I was amazed at how much stock was squeezed in and so organised behind the little thirties shop front. The people who run/staff this place are so old fashioned helpful and the whole culture is homely but well outside my comfort... More

I spent a couple of hours chasing around town trying to buy or borrow a tap for a cask of real ale we had bought for a party. The only helpful folk anywhere were the staff at the Hop Shop. Although they didn't have exactly what I had in mind they made an exhaustive search online and eventually stepped into... More

We are not sad obsessively but make enough home made cider, perry and beer to save a lot of money, use our own pears and apples and have reasonable quality light booze available for next to nothing and constantly to hand. The Hop Shop is both a bit off the beaten track but very accessible, close to the main roads... More

My ageing mother is a zealous wine maker using fruit from her own garden. We buy for her from here and they have always been efficient and friendly. Can't say we are into amateur booze making ourselves but evidently lots of people are and the shop has always been busy. It's one of those useful specialist shops you always fear... More
