A classy food and fine beverage retailer that carries a solid hundred of beer bottles. Amongst those, a bout a third are from Scotland, which I presume is the reason for your coming. I must say I prefered Edinburgh’s Cornelius bottle shop for the wider range of rarities, but that may only be punctual. A fun store to visit even not considering the beer range though.
Visited 3/07/09. Has a decent selection of bottled beers downstairs with, unsurprisingly, the Scottish selection from the likes of Broughton, Williams Brothers and Traquair leading the way. The food in the ground floor cafe was high quality and reasonably priced. The wine was good too.
A small chain of upmarket delicatessens in Glasgow which specialise in beer and wine. Great selection of bottled beers from all over the world and knowledgable staff. Nice atmosphere for browsing for beers, only downside is high prices.
Stylis shop, with lots of tempting food, too. The selection was good enough for a visitor, with bottles from a broad range of Scottish brewers. I’d like to point out that they have a shop in Prestwick airport as well, where you can stock up both for the train ride into town and for your flight home. And they have haggis for you to take home, too!
The basement department for alcoholic drinks opened at 12:30 on Sunday, which gave me the chance of buying a few new beers. Reasonable selection of beers (Scottish and continental), and of course Scotch whisky. The delicatessen on the ground floor looked very tempting indeed - if I’d known that the FMD restrictions on import of produce from Britain had been lifted, I would have bought some yummy stuff to take home.
When I arrived at the Prestwick airport this was the first place I noticed and as I was leaving Glasgow this was my last stop! Nice selection of UK beers and they would let you drink them right there before the flights.
A great place to pick up hard to find beers, particularly German or Belgian ones. They had a lot of Oktoberfest beers when I visited in November (all £2.99 for 500ml). It is a bit pricey but most beers are hard to get elsewhere without going online and paying delivery. One thing to watch is that some beers that could be found very easily elsewhere were priced rather highly in Peckhams (example: Chimay Blue available for under £2 in most Asda’s was well over £3 here, same goes for some Brewdogs beers). A nice wee shop though and one I’ll be back at quite a lot in the coming months.
