Come and pay us a visit here at the Home of Scottish Brewing.

We’d love to show you around the place, tell you all about our beers and some of the people who’ve brewed them here for almost 300 years… and, best of all, taste one or two of them with you in our brewery bar, The Monks’ Retreat.

We’re just 30 miles from Edinburgh – 25 minutes on the train – and tours run every day. So what are you waiting for?

Our Story

Belhaven – or “Beautiful harbour” – nestles among the rolling barley fields of the beautiful East Lothian coast, around 20 miles east of Edinburgh. For nearly 300 years, we have brewed in this place using only the finest local barley and choicest hops.

Established in 1719, Belhaven is Scotland’s oldest working brewery. With abundant local barley, fine water from the brewery well and access to markets up and down the coast, Belhaven was the perfect place for a brewery back then, and it still is today.
