After more than a year of closure due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Campervan Brewery has decided to transform its beloved community taproom into a fantastic beer garden.
The brewery's beer garden has been a long-standing project for founder, Paul Gibson. Announced as one of the taproom improvements in their crowd-funding campaign in 2018, the transformation initially planned for spring 2020 had to stop due to the Covid 19 outbreak.
Paul told us: “The beer garden has been in the back of my mind for quite a long time. We had this space at the front of the brewery and I could see it becoming an amazing place where people can come and chill under the sun with a pint of Leith Juice.”
There's an abundance of choice with 10 beers on tap, the beer garden will showcase Campervan's classics alongside some of the finest guest beers, as well as a selection of wine, local spirits and soft drinks.
In the next few weeks, the beer garden will also open its doors to local food vendors and to help bolster Edinburgh’s thriving food & drink scene following the pandemic and we cannot wait to see what they have in store!
With 20 tables and a capacity up to 100 people, the Brewery Beer Garden aims to become a social hub for the Leith Community and will be hosting a series of events throughout the summer.
Paul Gibson continues: “Our taproom has always been open to everyone and we’ve been lucky enough to work on a lot of different projects in the past, always close to the community and to our values of inclusivity. With our new beer garden it’s really important for us to keep being a part of this and to always give back to Leith and the community that has been supporting us from the very beginning.”
Campervan Brewery Beer Garden is now open and they are taking advanced bookings, as well as walk-in, and is both dog friendly and kids friendly too. For further information regarding opening times and bookings, check out the Campervan Brewery website here.
