Brewery’s 300th anniversary celebrated at Holyrood

As part of the celebrations marking 300 years of Belhaven Brewery, Iain Gray MSP has hosted a reception at the Scottish Parliament.

Staff from Belhaven set up a bar in the Parliament’s Garden Lobby to enable MSPs and other guests, including the CEO of Greene King, the brewery’s owners, to sample some of its popular beers.

The reception is part of a programme of events and activities throughout the year to celebrate the anniversary, which will include the opening of a £500,000 visitor centre at the brewery.

Speaking after the reception, Iain Gray MSP said:

“I was very pleased to welcome numerous guests, including Greene King’s CEO Rooney Anand, to this celebratory reception in the Scottish Parliament to mark 300 years of Belhaven Brewery.

“Belhaven is an important local employer and an iconic Scottish brand, and it was great to see so many colleagues from all parties there to help mark this significant milestone for Scotland’s oldest working brewery.”
