Belhaven Brewery is to host a weekend festival on September 21 to celebrate 300 years of brewing, featuring a programme of Scottish music.
Belhaven’s story marries 300 years of history with a distinctly modern outlook, and the festival line-up reflects this combination of traditional and modern. The main stage will showcase the best in Scottish traditional music and top talent from Scotland’s folk scene over the last three decades.
Gates will open at 11am, with the first act taking to the stage at noon. Meanwhile, the brewery gardens will host family activities, including music masterclasses.
Belhaven’s award-winning beers will be served from tap bars around the brewery grounds, including 1719, a specially brewed birthday celebration pale ale, Twisted Grapefruit IPA, current Scottish beer of the year, gold-medal winner Twisted Thistle IPA, and, of course, Belhaven Best.
There will be food stalls, as well as others selling Belhaven Brewery and band merchandise.
Gordon Muir, Belhaven Brewery’s marketing controller and festival organiser, said: “It’s not every year you get to mark a milestone as big as 300 years, and so we wanted to celebrate this with Belhaven’s two loves, beer and Scottish music.
“Belhaven’s 300th Birthday Bash is the ultimate party for those fans and our loyal customers who enjoy nothing more than a few beers and great live music.”
