We provide beer bottled on the premises, fresh from the Kegerator (the only of it's kind in Scotland). A new keg is put on every couple of weeks and customers can bring back bottles to refill from our tap as often as they like. Adding an exiting element, not common in most off-licenses.

"The Beerhive has an extensive range of unusual beers from across the globe but with a heavy emphasis on supporting very small independent Scottish breweries."
