The Cage

About Utobeer

Utobeer began trading at Borough Market in December 1999. At that time the stall was manned by the directors of the company, Richard Dinwoodie and Mike Hill. They operated from a trestle table and a couple of display cases, the portfolio at that time consisted of approximately 50 beers, a stark contrast to the 700 beers the Cage holds today. Furthermore, our range is the most comprehensive in the capital stocking beers from every corner of the globe.

Why us

Utobeer is a completely independent specialist beer shop and was one of the first of its kind in Britain. Simply put, our knowledge, expertise and dedication are unrivalled. We never cease searching for new, exciting and importantly, quality beers.

A question often asked by our customers is how do we find all these beers? The answer is very simple: Over the years we have built strong relationships with brewers; old and new, British and foreign. We are passionate about supporting new breweries and getting their beer out there.

Managing Director Richard Dinwoodie is an renowned international beer judge, adjudicating at events such as the Great American beer festival. This knowledge is passed down throughout the company and our team at the Cage palates are honed and trained to meet your needs whether it be for food matching, that perfect present or just something for the weekend. They are more than happy to talk all things beer and give sagely advice so please don’t be afraid to ask.
