Scottish craft brewery toasts National Beer Day with 40 year anniversary campaign

Independent craft brewery Harviestoun is celebrating National Beer Day, on 15 June, with the launch of a nationwide campaign to celebrate 40 years in the business. 

The campaign will include the launch of two new products, competitions and pop-up beer tasting events across Scotland and in London. Its new lager is due to hit the shelves this summer and its limited edition 40 year old expression of Ola Dubh will be launched as a collector’s piece later in the year.

Both products will be available to buy directly from the online shop, as well as selected stores across Scotland. 

The new beers are crafted by master brewer Amy Cockburn and her all-female brew team. Commenting on the new product development, Cockburn said: “We’re really excited to be marking National Beer Day by revealing our plans for a nationwide 40th anniversary campaign. This is a significant milestone in the evolution of Harviestoun as a pioneering producer and modern craft classic. We’ve been brewing since the early 1980s and have been crafting beer long before it became a popular trend, but we’re continuing to innovate and develop our product range. 

“We’re now planning to pay tribute to Harviestoun’s legacy and brewing history in the best way we know, with the launch of two exciting new products for 2023. Our new lager will go on sale this summer and our limited edition 40-year-old expression of Ola Dubh will be launched as a collector’s piece later in the year.

“We want to encourage craft beer lovers from far and wide to join our 40th anniversary celebrations, but they’ll need to wait just a few more weeks to get their hands on our new lager, which is now being perfected in time for its official launch in August.”
