Brewed in Edinburgh At Caledonian we apply over 140 years of brewing knowledge to create beers perfect for today’s tastes.
Our values are based on Edinburgh’s strong character, the inventiveness, judgement and artistry of our brewers, and the pure quality of our beers. In time-honoured fashion we continue to use natural whole leaf hops and use open-fired brewing coppers, which are the last remaining of their kind in the UK.
As the city’s only original brewery, we honour the past, relish the future and celebrate the present, sponsoring the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Caledonian Pipe Band. As the author Ian Rankin and his Inspector Rebus both appreciate, Caledonian beer is a brand in tune with Edinburgh culture.
“I’ve tasted a multitude of beers and lagers in over a dozen countries but nothing quite matches Deuchars. When I’m away on tour with my books it’s one of the things I miss the most.”
Ian Rankin, author
Beer of the month
Sponsors of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Like the Fringe, Deuchars IPA is known for its Edinburgh roots. It’s brewed only in Edinburgh’s Caledonian Brewery and we believe reflects the best of the capital’s combination of historic tradition with modernity.
