jamestulloch  (9) Edinburgh, Scotland | September 9, 2016
One of the most established Edinburgh bottle shops. It’s still one of the best. Knowledgable staff, a wide selection and good music in-store. Half of the store is dedicated to wine - from a selish point of view, I’d prefer if beer took up more shelf space. Staff tweet new beer arrivals, which I find really helpful. Prices are good. The Cornelius beers are aliases, which I wasn’t aware of at first. If a rare beer makes its way to Edinburgh there’s a very high chance Cornelius will stock it.

From a tourist ratebeerian perspective I knew this place was rather out of the central area of Edinburgh where we would be staying, but on arrival in town when I saw that they were proactive tweeting updates of bottles that had just come into Store – (one that was a big want) I decided to go pay this place a visit. They have a great range of bottles and cans here, lots on the shelves and they had 2 large fully stocked fridges. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and I picked up a handful of beers to take away. Great place this.

One of the places to which my month’s pay seems to regularly disappear... excellent selection, constantly adding new lines. James is always helpful. Can often find some hidden gems.

Very good selection of beers but why can’t they put prices on them? I must have been there 50 times and I’ve never had an itemised receipt.

An important beershop for Edinburgh. When I started going here, it was the only real place to buy this thing called beer. Plenty of beershops have sprung up since but this one still holds strong. The shop is split in to two, one half stocks good wine and the other - good beer. Great selection which changes quite frequently. Friendly staff. Good place.

Dropped in during my short stay in Edinburgh. Solid little range, however chap behind the counter was super friendly. Found an 'I hardcore you' tucked away in the corner, and despite being aware of how old it is, enquired about the price. 3 quid for a drop that costs around $25 back in Aus, ecstatic. I was also directed towards other craft beer venues, definitely recommend this place.

cgarvieuk  (350) Edinburgh , Scotland | June 6, 2013
This is one of the few half decent beer shops in edinburgh. The owner is real friendly and helpfull. Stock changes reasonably frequently. With lots of scottish Micros, mostly standard foreigns with some semi unusual and a some other Brittish beers. ID LIKE TO STRESS THAT THE RANGE CAN VASTLY VARY DEPENING ON VISIT. STOCK DOES TURN OVER WELL ... AND DESPITE BEING MY REGULAR SHOP I PICK UP AT LEAST 1 NEW RATE PER VISIT

AshtonMcCobb  (188) Edinburgh, Scotland | January 18, 2013
The best beer shop in the East side of Edinburgh and the pioneer of craft beer in shops in Edinburgh. Basically, 4 or 5 years ago, there was only this shop, now there are many others. Respect due!

Large variation and ever changing selection of beers. Too much biased towards Scottish and American beers. Needs to diversify countries.
