Support Edinburgh craft breweries and raise funds for local charities with a box of Edinburgh Beers.
In early 2020, in response to the Covid pandemic, Edinburgh Beer Box was created as a collaboration project.
We have two simple goals:
- To support Edinburgh craft breweries.
- Raise charitable funds for local good causes.
How we do it?
We've gathered amazing beers from the ten Edinburgh craft breweries. We then put together mixed boxes of 12 or 24 cans from those breweries. Or, you can select from 6+ beers individually.
Breweries are: Barney's, New Barns, Pilot, Bellfield, Stewart Brewing, Cold Town, Edinburgh Beer Factory, Cross Borders, Top Out and Campervan.
When you order an Edinburgh Beer Box it triggers an immediate & fair price payment to the breweries (unlike supermarkets, large online retailers and wholesalers who demand lower prices and can take up to 10 weeks to pay).
Your beer box can be shipped anywhere in the UK – shipping is FREE for any order over £40 (Advent Calendars do incur a shipping charge due to weight)
We also donate £1 to charity for every box purchased.
So why not treat yourself, or a friend, to a box of the highest-quality craft beer - and while you’re at it, do your bit to help protect Edinburgh’s proud history of brewing excellence and raise money for good causes.
It's important to support local businesses at this time by buying direct or through initiatives such as this. Bellfield Brewery are delighted to support Edinburgh BeerBox
A dynamic evolution - the website and initiative certainly reflect this. Well done.
These are challenging times for us all, but we are delighted to be part of this fantastic initiative. Edinburgh was a city built upon the success of many small but great breweries, and long may that spirit continue. Lets work together for a safer future of us all.
Beer cans from the Edinburgh Beer Factory.
Located on the east side of the capital Edinburgh Beer Factory draws its inspiration from a wonderfully unexpected source – Eduardo Paolozzi, the “father of pop art”. Paolozzi, who was born in Leith, was renowned for taking everyday objects and transforming them into works of art; he created sculptures from scrap metal, collages from magazine cut-outs. When Edinburgh Beer Factory began in 2015 its goal was to do something similar by transforming that most commonplace of drinks – lager – into something sublime. “Our first beer was our award-winning Paolozzi Lager,” says Emily Clarke, from the family-run brewery. “We felt no one had done much with lager. “It’s largely mass produced, low quality, associated with laddish culture. But with a bit of time and expertise spent on it, it can be a very sophisticated, good quality drink.” Edinburgh Beer Factory has since gone on to produce a wide range of successful craft ales, several of which have picked up gongs at the World Beer Awards. But the focus on good-quality lager is what continues to set Edinburgh Beer Factory apart – a fitting ambition since Edinburgh was the first city in the UK to brew lager, way back in the mid-19th century. And we have included a full-flavoured Vienna-style lager from the brewery’s new “Edinburgh” range as part of the mouth-watering selection of beers we deliver.
Eduardo Paolozzi, meanwhile, remains at the heart of everything that goes on at Edinburgh Beer Factory – from the artwork on its cans and bottles to his inspirational philosophy which seeps into everything they do. “He was a very creative, outward-looking Scotsman,” Emily says. “He believed in taking everyday objects and turning them into works of art. He called it ‘the sublime in the everyday’. “To us he represents an outward-looking, vibrant, multicultural version of Scotland.” From day one Edinburgh Beer Factory has worked closely with the Paolozzi Foundation, making a charitable donation to it for every bottle or pint of Paolozzi lager sold. That money helps the foundation promote and preserve the great man’s work and support upcoming artists. “Paolozzi is our muse, if you like, we share his values,” Emily adds. “For us, he represents the best of modern Scotland.”
