Why we love it

An independent craft beer bottle shop in the beating heart of Wapping Wharf's Cargo 2 development with speciality, quality and affordability at their core.

Providing a careful balance of accessible Bristolian favourites (think Wiper & True, Moor, Lost & Grounded etc) in the fridges and a whole wall of rarer, eclectic treats to take away, for take-home Growlers (and a choice of fantastic keg beers to fill them with) and an altogether more rewarding visit to Spike Island you should most definitely look for the Beer Necessities, the simple Beer Necessities.


Try a DEYA Keg Beer (they're all Vegan!) and take your favourite home in a Growler
Bottles from Bristol's finest breweries and across Europe

The best place for craft beer in the city centre!


Loving the work tbn doing!


Nice find will return!!


Very knowledgable and helpful


Excellent selection of local and "far away" beers served by knowledgeable and friendly staff


Beer necessities is a nice little beer shop tucked away in one of the cargo holds behind M-Shed. It's effectively a candy shop for adults with a big collection of quality beers. The staff are very knowledgeable and it is surrounded by some of the best eateries in the city. Effectively a good place to retreat after soaking up some culture in the m-shed museum, stocking up on some beers for upcoming occasions or just grabbing some food in that part of town with a good quality beer.
