Really fine bottle (and food) shop located in the fun Grainger Market. Didnít have time to linger overlong, nor to dig into the food offerings (on the MMMMM side of the shop). But, absolutely first rate service. Super knowledgeable, very helpful woman spent a lot of time with us, very thoughtful as to beer recs (and also multiple restaurant recs). Went home with just a couple but was very happy, and would prioritize this place on a return trip.

We visited here on Wednesday 1st October 2014. This place is situated in Grainger Market, its in the part of the market that is more opened out. The shop is effectively split in two with the beer and drinks selection on the left as you enter and a foodie area off to your right. Beer choice is pretty good and well laid out with some US, German and Belgian choices moving around you have a very good local selection before rest of UK. I picked up a couple Anarchy beers and a Siren that Iíd not had. I donít think that the selection would excite a rabid ticker or rater as there was nothing ultra difficult or so rare, but it was well chosen and there would certainly be something probably from the North East that a visitor fron another part of the UK wouldnít have had. Service good, beers individually wrapped in paper. Well worth a visit if in area.

A fantastic shop with an excellent range of beer, especially in terms of beers from the north east. Keep an eye on their twitter feed for the latest beers.

Located in the middle of a very worn down and somewhat trashy market, this upscale food and beer place is a little out of place. Local selection is decent, but they have more imports than locals which is too bad. Prices are on the high side, but they donít seem to have much competition.

A great little market stall with a good range of beers. Especially good for local stuff, although there were a few interesting foreign ones in there too. Well worth stopping by.

A great deli, has good food but I was more interested in the incredible beer selection. Sipping on the terrific Troubadour right now thanks to this deli. Has some terrific beers that are barely seen in Newcastle, and even the UK I think!! Just superb and terrific staff, will be back very soon. Please, buy your beer here, when you taste the Belgian beers it will make you realise just how poor most of the UKís standard pub pints actually are, not including Black Sheep of course!

Now the best place to buy interesting beer in the city centre. A true conneesewers paradise. All the great local brews, and a judicious selection of others, including some of the less common Euro styles. You will leave with a purchase. Truly knowledgeable staff. Also, gourmet foodstuffs to browse. Crams a lot of Gustatory interest into a manageable space. Situated in the Grainger Market, which at the time of its opening in 1835, was considered the most spacious and magnificent market in Europe. To mark its opening, a grand dinner was held, complete with an orchestra, and a painting of this event by Henry Perlee Parker (1795-1873), can be seen in the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle, culture fans. Despite fires, re-development, Eldon Square, and the dreaded Metro Centre, the Grainger Market survives, and I love it. Glug is the jewel in the crown.

Popped in this afternoon and was mightily impressed by the selection on offer here. Quite a unique display of beers, including probably the best selection of beers from new and established Northern Breweries Iíve ever seen in one place. Also, despite only stocking maybe a dozen ciders the choice is impressive and clearly hand-picked including some Yorkshire cider makers and a perry from Ross on Wye. The Belgian & German selection is good - this guy clearly knows his stuff.. i donít think Iíve seen the excellent Troubadour on sale anywhere else in the UK. On the whole, I canít imagine a better place to look for regional beer than here. Much better than Fenwicks. Well worth checking out.

There is no question that this small drink & deli shop has one of the best bottled beer selections in town. It is hidden away in Grainger market, so you might have to wonder around a bit until you find it. They have a good variety of world-wide beer, but the best bit is the local section. In particular there is a lot of limited Allendale, Sonnet 43, Durham and Tyne Bank stuff, which I didnít see elsewhere. Prices seemed reasonable to me. Do yourself a favour and buy some food while youíre here too! A great little place.
