Nice little bottle shop with a large, varied selection. Ash (the owner) is always extremely helpful. Also hosts regular, well-priced tastings.

Small shop close to Haymarket station. Great selection of mostly local and american beers, some hard to find ones, like many brewdog abstakts. Prices are good. We were invited to share a beer with the owner, very nice. I showed him a whish list and as he knew the brewmaster of one of them (Stewart First World Problems), he called him if he still has that one. Next day he gave it to me without any charge, many thanks for him and for the brewer!

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.
