Tiny grocery store with a big selection of beer, Kernel, Siren, Mikkeller, and some US Imports as well. Also some beers stored at the back, just ask and they will find what you are looking for. Their webpage is the place to look for whats in stock, great to find Kernels off the beaten track.

A newsagents from the outside and can be difficult to spot unless looked for. Once you do find it and get inside you will be greeted by pleasant selection of craft beers. Along with the craft beers you may find in supermarkets you will also find some gems (Mikkeller’s/To Ols/Rogue/Stone etc) which means that this shop has the best selection of craft beer in the city (bar BrewDog bar). Selection of beer always varies with each delivery which is a plus as you may get bored of drinking the same beers week in week out. Prices can be on the high side when compared to shops in bigger cities but thats the premium you pay for craft beer in a relatively small city in a sparsely populated region of Scotland. Staff know what theyre talking about and make great use of Facebook (aswell as their website) to promote their new stock and keep their customers informed.

Small newsagent shop which also sells beer a combination of the usual supermarket stuff and a selection of interesting craft beers. Enthusiastic service, reminiscent of a small version of Nina’s Minimarket in Edinburgh. Now that all Peckhams stores in Aberdeen appear to have closed this is the best place for bottled beer in Aberdeen.

Small grocery store, visited the day before a delivery so not well stocked. Trying, and may get somewhere in the Nina’s area if lucky. Sadly has no real competition in Aberdeen at all at present. Updated March 2015. Changed hands and selection now somewhat reduced.

Very new to selling craft beer, but very enthusiastic about what they are selling, and getting new stock regularly. Looking forward to whats to come in the near future!
