Highly rated on Tripadvisor. Nestled in an industrial estate to the south of Edinburgh, our current site has been where we call home since 2013. Why not pop along to the brewery and see it for yourself? You can either have a Brewery Tour, brew your own beer in the Craft Beer Kitchen or visit our Tap Room. Pick up some bottles or cans, fill your Growler, or grab a seat and sample a few beers while looking through to the brewery. On sunny days you can sit in our beer garden, drink a beer or two and look up to the top of our brew kit and see our brewers hard at work.
