About the Pub

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.

Historic Interest

An enterprising and brave venture that began life on 15/11/2011 in former butchers premises. Opened by longtime IT professional Dean Hilton and his wife, it aimed to be both a shop, a sample room, and a bar. Dean retired in mid-2020, and the business passed to Markus Sorsa. CAMRA member Markus, who had a production job in the media, moved to the north west from London when his wife got a job in Hyde. Deciding it was time for a career change, his first venture into the licensed trade was running the Shepherds Call in Hyde, but even then he was looking at potential premises for a micropub. He then saw the Beer Shop was for sale and thought it would be better to but an established business rather than start from scratch.
