POPULAR brands made at Edinburgh’s Caledonian Brewery will now be produced at Belhaven Brewery.

Heineken announced that the historic Edinburgh brewery, which dates back more than 150 years, was to close, with the loss of 30 jobs.

Now, a deal has been struck for famous ales Deuchars, Coast to Coast and Maltsmiths to be brewed in East Lothian instead.

Belhaven Brewery, which is owned by Greene King, is Scotland’s oldest working brewery, dating to 1719.

It already produces popular drinks such as Belhaven Best, Belhaven Black and Belhaven 80 Shilling.

Matt Starbuck, Greene King brewing and brands managing director, said: “These brands are long-loved in both Scotland and beyond, and we are proud to be able to continue to brew them so they can be enjoyed by consumers and customers alike.

“This agreement underlines our commitment to Belhaven Brewery as Scotland’s oldest working brewery, and boosts our portfolio of already award-winning beers.”
