We usually like nothing better than showing people around here at the Home of Scottish Brewing.

For the next few months, we're closed for tours as we prepare some rennovations in time for our 300th birthday.

We expect to reopen tours from March 2019 - stay tuned for further exciting developments!

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.
