Great Scottish Beer Celebration LogoAbout Arrow

Hippo Beers presents the 2nd annual Great Scottish Beer Celebration. The beer festival showcasing the thriving independent Scottish brewing industry and this year we’ve brought a few buddies from beyond our fair border as well. Outstanding breweries, stacks of beer, street food and music.


The inaugural Great Scottish Beer Celebration was so popular that we’ve added an extra session on this year to cater for demand. The festival will take place between Friday 11th March and Saturday 12th March 2016. There will be four sessions across the two days:

  • Friday afternoon: 12pm – 5pm
  • Friday evening: 6pm – 11pm
  • Saturday afternoon: 12pm – 5pm
  • Saturday evening: 6pm – 11pm
