This is one of Edinburgh’s best bottle shops. For a relatively small retail space, the choice of beers is incredible – I always find something here I’ve not tried before. The staff are really friendly and know their stuff, too. Prices are fair. It’s not far from Haymarket train station, which is pretty handy for me.

2014-07-09. Nice little shop with a good selection of Scottish beers and some imports. Picked up a few BrewDog beers and some other Scottish stuff. Cashier was friendly and recommended a few other local shops to potentially find beers we were looking for. I had heard of the places from Ratebeer she was suggesting which implies that she knows what she is talking about.) The store was a touch warm (I was sweating but had also just walked a fair ways to get there) so my preference would be bottles from the fridge. They had a good number of the older vintages of BrewDog AB beers but the prices were high enough that I opted to skip them without being able to check Ratebeer ratings first (my 3G access failed me in a time of need!). In fairness those are tough to find, as were some of the other pricier items. Other prices seemed more reasonable. Pretty good shop, but North American visitors may wish to lower their expectations if they are only visiting once as like any shop, inventory will vary depending on the day you go.

Been my local bottle shop for a good few years now, the owner ash is always up for a chat about craft beer and willing to make a deal. Pretty good range, especially in local Scottish beer. Only bottle shop in Edinburgh I can think of with regular tastings.

Wine shop located near Haymarket with a decent beer selection. Fairly comprehensive Scottish selection and some American stuff, but really nothing that I couldn’t find elsewhere. The guy working there was however rather helpful and friendly. A decent stop if in the area, but I was bit underwhelmed given some of the other glowing reviews!

Decent bottle shop in Edinburgh, great owner, very helpful and friendly, little pricier than some, but well located for train station (haymarket) and usually a few new ones for me

A small shop near Haymarket in Edinburgh. Owner Ash is always up for a discussion of beers and gives good recommendations, especially on Scottish Beer. Very nice selection of Scottish Craft Beer and a good deal from around the world, especially the US. Less fun when Ash is not there. Has a good selection of Wines as well. Does tastings several times a month with visiting experts. Prices are in the high end, but that comes with the wide selection.

My local shop, and a great one. Great selection of mainly Scottish, American and Belgian beers with more appearing every time I go in. Would love to see some more English beers making an appearance, the likes of Thornbridge and Kernel are near impossible to get up here, I’ll keep asking and hoping! Very friendly too, always up for a chat.

Small shop in the west end of Edinburgh that has an extensive selection of beers from Scotland and Belgium plus a few varieties from elsewhere. This was my first visit to the shop and I was impressed with the selection and the friendliness of the staff.
