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.

I have been in both the Edinburgh and Glasgow shops.

Peckham's basement shop in the Merchant City has a good selection of beers that you would not find anywhere else. However I feel that the range of Scottish beers could be improved. They have a range from around the world (I purchased Keo for the old man, he was delighted) and the people serving were both knowledgeable and helpful.

The general obscurity of the beers present did result in them being a bit more expensive. Overall a good place to go for difficult to find beers, but if you want any Scottish beers best look elsewhere.

The beer and wine shop is down the stairs of the shop in the basement.

Mostly this is a wine shop but the entire back wall was beer, and a good selection as well. Maybe 1/4 is Scottish micros, there is a good deal of Belgian bottles (La Chouffe and some other harder to find), Germans (lots of hefes), and a few American micros; I found Brooklyn Stout and Lager, and a few IPAs.

Value was OK for the UK I would say, 500ml bottles ranged from 1.70 to 3.00 pounds. The guy at the counter was helpful and pointed out some of the beers I was looking for.

This review is for the Stockbridge store in Edinburgh... The address is 48 Raeburn Place, Stockbridge, Edinburgh EH14 1HN

I visited here a few times while staying in Edinburgh as it was only a 5 minute walk away...

They had a great selection of Scottish brews including ones from Broughton (i picked up the Black Douglas and the Scottish Oatmeal Stout), Isle Of Sky (Black Cuillin), Orkney (Dark Island, DI Reserve, Raven Ale), Black Isle, Traquair House and Harviestoun...

It's a little more expensive than some other places (the DI Reserve was £1.50 more than i paid elsewhere) but it's definitely well worth a visit.

It's also a great deli and has a pretty decent wine selection...

If you are looking to buy beer in Glasgow this is an excellent place to go. The beers are downstairs and although this is principally a wine store the beer selection is pretty good with beers from all over the world.

Peckham's also have stores in the west end of Glasgow and if you are visiting there the one in Clarence Drive has the better beer selection. The Byres Road branch is much handier for the subway and has a decent selection also. See their website for locations, although there is no information on the beer range.

Found this place while living in Glasgow and bought from them many times. The beer is found below the ground floor delicatessen/food section of the shop in the basement, along with glassware, wine and a great selection of whiskies. A comprehensive range of Scottish beers along with a decent offering of German brews. They also have several English and Belgian beers as well a few from Australia and the US. Service is friendly and helpful and prices are good. Definitely worth checking out if you’re staying in Glasgow and are looking for UK/German/Belgian drinks.

Glasgow doesnt have the draw of Edinburgh or some of the more historical and scenic places in Scotland. However this is a great find right off of Argyll Street. Quality seems good-a bit of dusting needs to be done but everything I picked up and looked at was well within its sell by date. The staff couldnt have been more friendly and helpful. I knew what I was looking for beer wise but the knowledge and help when talking single malt scotch was amazing. I had my own wee tasting session and everything. I find it really enjoyable when I get an education with my purchase. The selection was pretty damn good-a fair number of English micros and just about every Scottish micro that I know of and even a few extras. Some assorted glassware and gift packs to be had. Stellar single malt selection. Well worth a stop to back up what a decent supermarket might not have. Reasonably priced-something for everyone.

It took my a little while of living in Glasgow to be recommended to seek this place out, but I'm glad I did.

The ground floor is a delicatassen, the upper floors are a cooking school, but the downstairs is where the beer is at. The selection is the best I've seen in Glasgow. A nigh-on comprehensive selection of Scottish micros, and a number of Belgians and Germans as well. There is a wider assortment of beers from all over the world as well, with some US offerings, some Australian (including Little Creatures Pale Ale which they stock in the cooler as well) and even some Canadian (although being a citizen, I can't say I'm proud that we export Moosehead Lager and Sleeman Honey Brown).

Quality I had to mark down for I did receive a bad bottle of Westmalle Tripel which had been exposed to air. However, they did make that up in service by dutifully replacing it without asking, that same day. The also dutifully wrap each bottle in tissue paper so they won't clank about and they a rotating selection of beer glasses as well, not to mention the wide selection of wines and spirits. About a 10 minute walk from me at Strathclyde University, it has fast become THE beer store in Glasgow for me.
