We know this because the Great Abbey's 'cerevisiarii' or ale brewers are mentioned in the Domesday Book. We are proud of this heritage and tradition and we are as passionate about our beers, our service and our people as our brewing ancestors.

  • Belhaven or "Beautiful Harbour" is Scotland's oldest working brewery, established in 1719, 20 miles east at Edinburgh. 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. It has long been known for its excellent range of flavourful Scottish ales.
