Belhaven stout gets national roll-out

Added: Tuesday, January 24th 2012

Belhaven Black, a 4.2% Scottish stout, will be launched this month and will be available throughout the country in Belhaven and Greene King pubs. Belhaven, based in Dunbar, is owned by Greene King. It's one of the odlest breweries in Britain, stretching back some 400 years on a site where Benedictine monks once brewed.

The stout uses three Scottish malts and is brewed with pure local water. Brewery director George Howell said the beer should appeal to discerning drinkers who fancy something different from the norm. The is brewed in the Scottish style, making it quite different to Irish stouts.

It will be available in keg from this month and in cask-conditioned form from June.
