Lockdown Blog 9: #SupportLocal #ShopLocal #DrinkLocal

With lockdown continuing across the central belt of Scotland and beyond, local independent breweries could do with your support. 

We have lost business from pubs, bars and restaurants (again) and our taprooms (those that have them) are closed.

We make some amazing beers, our breweries add to the character and personality of our City and between us, we employ dozens of local people. 

While we all hope to be allowed to open up again in a few weeks’ time, for now online and takeaway sales are literally a lifeline for many of us.

So if you're after a few fresh, tasty craft beers this weekend, please #SupportLocal and buy from a local brewery: many of us are open for (contactless) takeaways - either cans, bottles or draught beer in takeaway containers.

Tap Takeover: International Women's Day at The Bow Bar

March 05, 2024

Always strong supporters of International Women's Day, this year Edinburgh’s renowned Bow Bar has gone the extra mile!

Clara and Lili, two of the female members of the Bow Bar’s team, have brewed their very own bespoke beer in celebration of IWD 2024. They visited Bellfield Brewery on a cold weekend in February, to brew a Belgian Pale Ale that they’ve named “Sweet Dreams Are Made of Yeast”. This 6% ABV pale ale is hoppy and malty in equal measure.
