The Heatons is arguably the richest area in the region for craft beer shops.
There's Stockport Bottle at 9A Shaw Road with a great carry-out selection and seven keg taps for those who can't resist drinking in. The longer-established Beer Shop at 13 Kingsleigh Road, Heaton Mersey is equally welcoming for on and off sales. But Heaton Hops in Heaton Chapel feels more like a true bar with its eight keg lines and two cask pumps. Check out the flagon fill station for an ultra-fresh carry-out.
Damian O'Shea and Charlotte Winstone's award-winning tap room/bottle shop opened in 2014 and boasts an amazing range of ales in store. They also sell a selection of craft beers, cider and gins available to buy online for local delivery (Min £25 spend), collection in store and for UK mainland delivery (£6.50 or free over £50).
There is a seated area in front of the shop for outside drinks (opening hours are weather dependent.)
