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.
Hogmanay @ Home Beer Box.
Let's not make matters worse by drinking sub-standard Beer this Hogmanay!
We've assembled ten of the best (well our favourites) Edinburgh Craft Beers of 2020 and will ship them to you in time for Hogmanay. Order but midday Tues 30th for delivery on 31st.
The stars of 2020 include:
Pilot AN DIPA 8% (330ml): The bigger, stronger and all-round big brother of Pilot's classic AN IPA.
Pilot Double Mochaccio Stout 9.5% (330ml): Pilot continue the big-brother theme with this imperial version of their regular Mochaccio Stout.
Newbarns Table Beer Callista 3% (440ml). New boys (and girls) to the Edinburgh Brewing scene in 2020 their Table Beers set the bar pretty high for a Edinburgh sessionable beer. This edition is no exception.
Newbarns (Citra & Ekuanot) Pale Ale 4.5% (440ml). Another belter from the Leith new boys, stunning.
Top Out Gripfel DDH Pale. 4.8% (440ml): In our humble option the best of the new 2020 beers from Top Out. Idaho 7 and Mosaic hops support a very decent Pale Ale.
Barney's Kvltvre DDH Pale 4%. Brewed under lockdown conditions with what he had to hand Barney produced this delicious juicy and citrusy pale aided with Citra, Mosiac and Motueka.
Bellfield Lawless Village IPA (4.5%). Cascasde and Centennial Hops bring a citrusy finish to their excellent American IPA.
Cross Borders Mosaic Enigma New England Pale (4.3%) 330ml: Truth-be-told, Cross Borders Citra Ekuanot New England is better but then they went and won an award for it and sold out. So we've opted for this Mosaic version which is still a delightful beverage.
Campervan No Messin Hazy Pale Ale (4.5%) 440ml. A straight-up delicious pale loaded with Ekuanot, Citra and Anthanum from Campervan.
Stewart's Brewing Affogato (5.5%) Vanilla, Caramel Espresso Stout 440ml: In the hands of a mere-mortal these ingredients are almost certain to be a car-crash. Stewart's head brewery Craig Scotland has however weaved some magic to produce a supremely well balanced beer.
