BELHAVEN BEST: SCOTLAND’S BEST-SELLING ALE
When we launched Belhaven Best in 1991 we pioneered a new concept for beer drinking in Scotland. The beautifully balanced smooth and creamy honey-coloured beer is dispensed using a mixture of nitrogen and carbon dioxide – otherwise known as nitrokeg technology.
THE BELHAVEN RANGE
We have many, many different ales in the Belhaven portfolio. Here’s a bit more about our favourites.
Truly the cream of Scottish beer, Belhaven Best is a rich, smooth, malty beer that looks great and tastes even better. It’s brewed from 100% Scottish barley and is available on smooth keg or widget can.
Twisted Thistle IPA
Big, bold and juicy. That’s why Twisted Thistle is our flagship American-style IPA. We balance full-bodied Scottish barley malt with loads of challenger, cascade and Hersbrucker hops to produce a beer that greets you with a nose-full of grapefruit aroma and follows up with a refreshingly bitter bite. Twisted Thistle was awarded a Monde Silver Award in 2014.
Intergalactic Dry Hop Lager
This bright, fresh lager is our newest beer in the Belhaven craft portfolio. We brew a classic pilsner-style lager and at the end of fermentation we add three zesty, citrusy American hops. Added late in the process, these hops contribute tons of aroma and a briskness on the pallet while retaining the clean crisp finish and perfect refreshment that you’d expect from a great craft lager.
Brewed with three types of Scottish malt and water from our ancient brewery well, Belhaven Black is a deliciously sessionable Scottish stout, with roasty notes of coffee and dark chocolate. This beer picked up a Monde Gold Award in 2014 and we challenge you to find a more approachable yet satisfying stout!
Belhaven 80 Shilling
Typically traditional Scottish ales were named according to the wholesale price of a cask. Historically, 80 Shillings were top shelf stuff, so only the best ingredients are used in our classic 80/- with three local malts and two hop varieties creating a rich copper-coloured beer with malty, toffee and soft fruit character.
St Andrews Ale
This classic amber ale is inspired by the great Scottish invention: golf. Like the game, it’s all about simplicity and balance – in this case, the perfect balance between biscuity malt and herbal and fruity hops. Just the thing to quench the thirst after a day on the links.
