The best of Scottish brewing with Belhaven beers

As Scotland’s oldest working brewery, we are inextricably linked with our country’s brewing heritage. Our history stretches all the way back to 1719 and we’ve been perfecting our craft ever since. Combining centuries-old traditions with modern brewing techniques, Belhaven beers are bursting with character and flavour. But don’t just take our word for it.


Award-winning craft beers and ales

As well as producing the best stout in Scotland and the nation’s favourite ale, Belhaven beers have also received international recognition. Some of our award-winning craft beers include our Belhaven Scottish Ale, Belhaven Wee Heavy and Belhaven Scottish Oat Stout, which have been honoured at the prestigious Monde Selection Awards and World Beer Awards. This is testament to the craftsmanship, quality, innovation and dedication that goes into each and every one of our brews.

Scotland’s No.1 ale: Belhaven Best

Smooth, balanced and refreshing, Belhaven Best is our flagship ale. It epitomises our commitment to Scottish brewing, full of locally sourced ingredients like our unique Belhaven yeast. A well-rounded session ale that’s bright amber in colour, the 3.2% ABV Belhaven Best is easy to drink with lots of toffee and caramel notes.


The best stout in Scotland: Belhaven Black

Scotland’s No.1 stout is rich and welcoming and full of roast coffee and chocolate flavours. Also made with local barley, yeast and water, the 4.2% ABV Belhaven Black is deep and smooth. The best stout in Scotland? We think so.

Our Brewing Process

The key to our unique beers doesn’t only lie in our local ingredients. It’s in how we ensure those ingredients are of the right standard for us to use and the care we take through every stage of our brewing process. We’ve been honing our craft for more than three centuries now, blending traditional techniques with modern technology to bring you the highest quality beers we can. Every single time.
