Vinny & Ted, a new independent bottle shop specialising in craft ales from smaller local, national, and international breweries is opening this March at St Peter’s Court in Chalfont St Peter and they are having a preview pop up next Friday & Saturday at Huddle in Gerrards Cross (details below).

As well as showcasing the best local, national and international craft beers, they will also stock wine and spirits from smaller wineries and distilleries. The team behind this new venture is local Chalfont resident Matt Pryce, Middlesex Cricketer Tim Murtagh and former England bowler Angus Fraser.

We caught up with Matt Pryce…

Why the shop? 

I’ve always enjoyed my craft beer and for a long time I’ve wanted to open a local business, so thought it would be an idea to combine the two and when a fantastic site in Chalfont St Peter (the former NatWest) became available I had to go for it. I think Chalfont has such a great sense of community with people really wanting to support local businesses so we can’t wait to open up. People can keep up to date by signing up to our mailing list on the website. Ideally we would like to expand locally into more towns that don’t currently have a bottleshop offering once this site is up and running.

Tell us more about Vinny & Ted…

Teds Tap Wall will have draft beers to enjoy on the premises that will rotate regularly, once stock of one beer is gone, we’ll get a new one in so customers can always try something new. We will also have well over 200 different beers from more than 70 different breweries available to drink in or takeaway.

Pop Ups…

We hosted a pop up at the Chalfont St Peter Xmas Fun Night and had some brilliant feedback. We’re doing another one out of Huddle in Gerrards Cross on the 25th and 26th of February where we will have live music, a DJ, street food and a selection of craft beers for people to try.

We’re hiring…

We’re currently on the lookout for full time bar manager and part time bar staff to man Ted’s Taps and create a fantastic atmosphere for our customers to enjoy. Some bar experience would be preferable but the main qualities we need are a passion for craft beer and a great customer service attitude. The rest we can teach you. Vinny and Ted have big plans for the future including expanding into more locations and this is an ideal time to join us at the start of our journey. www.vinnyandted.co.uk/come-work-for-us/
