The Growling Shrew is a family run, independent, speciality bottle shop proudly located in Skipton, Yorkshire.

We are not an archetypal off-licence as we aim to celebrate and source products from amazingly talented small independent brands from within the UK.

We aim to offer a diverse range of craft and traditional beers, ciders and artisan gins catering for a variety of customer preferences, flavours and styles.  Whether that’s from our wide selection of bottled or canned products, or our refillable Growlers, giving you hassle free fresh from the keg beer and cider to take-away and enjoy.

Passionate about craft and traditional beers, ciders and artisan gins

As part of curating both our core and continuously evolving ranges, the story and provenance behind the products your buying is important to us. 

Thus, ensuring what you find on our shelves has been selected for more than just a cool looking label, a quirky off the wall name or an ABV% that’ll have you singing sweet nothings to your mirrored reflection! 

We are passionate about the craft and traditional beers, ciders and artisan gins we offer, and look forward to you calling into our shop or joining us at one of our tasting events.

Share your tasting adventures

Additionally, if there are any products that you feel would complement the other items within The Growling Shrew, please let us know. 

Our tasting adventures haven’t taken us everywhere, so we’ve not yet come across everything.  We hope your beer, cider and/or gin adventures are as much fun as what ours are and look forward to helping your future explorations.
