Beers at room temperature just inside the door and arranged by style. More beer near counter and in coolers facing the counter. Helpful but not pushy staff. Mostly UK beers of course, but some impressive selections from Belgium (Fantome; Cantillon) and the US (Crooked Stave; Ale Smith).

Decent selection of Scottish brews as well as some from England, the US, Germany, Belgium and Denmark. Some bottles also in cold. Worth a visit.

The shop where I bought my bottled beers while visiting St Andrews for a fortnight. Far the best beer shop in town, though it is more devoted to wine than beer. In addition to a fair selection of Scottish beers, they also provide a few bottles from England, Belgium, Germany and USA. Friendly sales staff. The Central Bar is just on the opposite side of the street.

Excellent must visit place in st andrews, infact possibly one of the main reasons for me going there. When entering the chap not only says hey and asks where your from but generally asks if you want a glass of wine and when you say your here for beer you can see hes contimplating opening one for your visit. Good selection of harder to get beers and good belgiun selection. Nice place but why is it so far away from me!

My local bottle shop. Nice to have a mill around without any pressure to buy. The beer rack nearest the window contains all sorts, huge selection of Scottish micros, some English beers, and a selection of some of the more obvious Belgian / Germans. Various islands around the store are stocked with macros for those without the accustomed tastebuds.
Staff are quite knowledgeable, usually able to tell what’s coming in, and if they can get a certain beer you want. Selection varies, depends when they’re due an order, you can go in sometimes and have as little as 30 on the shelf, sometimes more than 90, but a goodish stock is maintained. Good place to shop, if a little pricey, good if you’re a wine drinker too, HUGE selection of those, spirits, cigars, occasional snacks, and if you’ve got money burning a hole, there’s the fine wine room, if you’re into some of the rare wines. Good place to visit, if you’re passing, just don’t expect anything stupidly rare.
