Shooting Star Chase

In the chronological order in which they sponsored: was established in 2005 to make the wide range of high quality, but often unknown, real ales; ciders; perries; and beers produced by British micro-breweries readily accessible to you. Our ethos is firmly based around giving customers the opportunity to try interesting and different beers, which would otherwise be hard for them to find. We also believe passionately in matching good food with good beer. The huge range of flavours, aromas and textures of beer makes it a perfect match for nearly any kind of food. Our shop is in East Twickenham and we also deliver locally. We also run free tastings at the weekend and monthly tasting events where you can meet the brewer.
