“Belhaven is Scotland’s oldest working brewery and one of its most iconic and recognisable brands. 300 years of continuous brewing is a major achievement and I’m pleased to be able to celebrate it with this EDM in Parliament.”
Iain Gray MSP said:
“Belhaven Brewery is an important local employer as well as an internationally-renowned brand. The brewery’s 300th anniversary is a significant milestone and I’m very happy to be hosting a parliamentary reception on behalf of Belhaven to join the celebrations.”
