Scottish Ales from Shetland to the Borders

  Buy beer online through our Scottish Real Ale Shop, 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.

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 a start, the core ingredient, honey, comes from one of the planet’s greatest eco-heroes – bees: the number#1 pollinators. And the honey we use comes from our own lovingly tended apiaries in Scotland and England. (To find out more about the importance of bees to our planet’s survival and how important it is to protect them and increase their number.

 On top of this, the glass we use to bottle Beehive Brae is the most eco-friendly glass available; our labels are made from recycled paper-stock; and we ensure that as much of the waste from the brewing process as possible gets recycled, either as compost for local allotments or as pigswill.
