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. We brew an astonishing range of beers, from clean crisp pilsners to rich sticky oat stout; and not forgetting Scotland’s Best-Loved Best. Every single one of them is brewed here at Belhaven Brewery, the home of Scottish brewing.
