WHO WE ARE
Set up by Charles Lumley in 2015 (with a lot of help from friends and family!), message in a bottle was designed to bring something new and exciting to Cleethorpes. Taking inspiration from other bottle shops in bigger towns and cities, Charles wanted to create the area's only specialist beer shop. Previously there had been nowhere else in the area to buy world beers or local ales in bottles.
The shop's manager (and Charles' brother in law) Ryan is now in charge of the day to running of the shop, but Charles can usually be found "helping out" at weekends.
The shop has continued to evolve and now stocks local and craft ciders as well as premium locally produced spirits.
After several successful temporary events, we were granted a licence to allow us to host a pop up bar every weekend.
Being a proud member of the Cleethorpes community, we love every opportunity to interact with our customers so please call in or get in touch.

Lincolnshire is home to an array of independent, award-winning micro-breweries creating superb, small-batch, craft beer. We are proud to stock, sell, serve and support our talented brewers and champion local beer.
Stop By For a Taste
Our weekend bar is open every Friday (from 4pm), Saturday (12-8pm) and Sunday (12-5pm). We always have a cask or two of real ale, a chiller jam packed with the finest craft beer for miles and our usual selection of premium spirits. We have recently doubled our seating capacity and now have inside seating available.
We proudly stock local gins Pin Gin and Deco. We also stock a range of premium gins and rums from across the world as well our very own Cleethorpes rum and gin (see below).
Yep, we specialise in Lincolnshire ales but we also have the biggest and best selection of world beers in town! Bottles of the finest British, Belgian, German and American craft ales as well as brews from exotic islands and far away lands are always available.
Cleethorpes now has its very own selection of rums after a collaboration between two Lincolnshire businesses.
The original small batch, dark rum is available in striking skull shaped bottles which are individually sealed by hand. It is infused with banana, salted caramel, molasses and a hint of citrusy orange. There are three different sizes with prices starting at £15.
Our latest edition is butterscotch flavoured and contains edible glitter meaning it's the closest thing you will ever get to a delicious, boozy snow globe.
