The Caledonian Craft Beer MERCHANT

CCBM Maygate Dunfermline

Welcome to The Caledonian Craft Beer Merchant, otherwise known by our regulars as The CCBM. We are an independent craft beer shop in Dunfermline’s beautiful Heritage Quarter which opened in 2019. We specialise mainly in craft beer from the UK, but our range also extends to Europe, North America and beyond.

We offer the widest selection of craft beer in Fife that we know of, constantly changing on a weekly basis with 200-250 different beer choices in both bottle and can as well as cocktails, cider and draught beer on tap. 

Visit our tap room

As well as our main retail space we also have a cosy little tap room for drinks in, affectionately known as Thunder Road and the smallest pub in Dunfermline!

Although it only has a small capacity we love the room’s reputation for bringing people together who all have a joint interest, with loads of new friendships having formed over a few beers in the time we’ve had it open. As well as being able to choose from our range of constantly changing 200+ canned and bottled beers, you can also enjoy our range of pre-mixed canned cocktails, cider and rotating choices of beer on draught.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive space for good people (and also their dogs, our four legged friends, are always welcome!).

Home of The Big Swally

First held in 2022, The Big Swally craft beer festival enters in to its third year this coming April, bringing together an awesome line up of breweries from all over the UK and beyond.

Held in The Glen Pavilion within Dunfermline’s beautiful Pittencrieff Park, it is one of the highlights of our year and a chance for you to meet all the people behind the beer, as our festival bars are only staffed by the breweries themselves.
