Attraction details
Owner description: A unique place in Callander situated in the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park selling over 130 different Scottish Beers by over 30 micro breweries from the Shetlands to the Borders. The largest selection of Scottish Real Ales under one roof.Our passion for Real Ale has long been established at the Lade Inn with our own exclusive house ales, but we wanted to take it one step further and become the central hub for all Scottish Bottled Ales. To make this dream a reality, we converted our old Microbrewery and the Scottish Real Ale Shop opened its doors for the first time in December 2006. We are a one stop shop for Scottish beer, Real Ale Festivals and brewing information; a place where you can purchase that elusive bottle from the Hebrides or that delicious blonde from Islay. We hold a Beer Festival every year and have tastings throughout the summer weekends so you can try before you buy!

For some "strange" reason my Hubby loves this place ........ so much so, he has now introduced my Dad to it :-) They love to try the different Ales a couple at a time. It is a bit more expensive than the supermarkets, but it has a much larger selection which impresses Hubby.

Have been a couple of times over the years, but being from the central belt can get real ale on draught - and in bottle from supermarkets etc - cheaper so didn't buy much. But that's not the point - this is a fantastic selection, in the right place for locals and holiday makers. A shining example of what's best about living nowadays compared to the dreadful old days. Great pub (grub) next door too.

A real delight to find this place with so many Sottish beers that it was tough to make a choice.

The owners really had a passion for what they were doing - sourcing the numerous ales must be a difficult job and the coverage is brilliant. You only have to be careful you can get them all in the car!

We'd gone for lunch in the Lade Inn next door and had been determined to buy some beer from this shop. It is a fantastic place to stock up on Scotland's finest real ales and the service was tremendously friendly. We intended to buy a few and ended up buying about a dozen bottles, non of which we could take back on our flight back south. We'll just have to trust my parents and hope they don't get drunk.

Well worth going in and equally well worth going to the Lade Inn next door to try out their real ale too.
