Glasgow's first speciality beer store opened in November 2012. Run by Alec Knox and Derek Hoy, it's named after the patron saint of brewers - St Augustine of Hippo Regius. Their desire to showcase as much good beer as possible means the stock changes on an almost daily basis. Keep an eye on the active Facebook page to stay up to date with new and interesting brews, or take pot luck with their extensive range of craft beers, real ales and world beers - with around 350 on the shelves you're unlikely to be disappointed. There's also a ‘beeraphenalia’ section, for the likes of glassware to show off your brew in, books and brewery merchandise.
