Book onto one of our gin, beer or whisky tours and let us tell you our story, explain the history of our site, show you our production methods, and guide you through a tasting session to finish. We offer gin, beer or whisky tours 7 days a week and booking is essential. Our shop is open 10am - 6pm every day, where you are welcome to pop in and sample some of our products outwith tour times.

We took a taxi, costing 12pounds, from the centre of St Andrews to the Eden Brewery, situated in a building steeped in history. Fortunate for us, it was only a 10 minute walk back to the train station.

I would recommend this trip to everyone. Kevin, our host, provided a warm welcome, interesting commentary and friendly/relaxed tour of this boutique brewery. On arrival we received a glass of beer ... a light easy drinking beer. We then tasted a range of the specialist beers ... all very enjoyable. My wife, who is not a beer drinker, found two beers she liked to our great surprise. My adult daughter, son and son's girlfriend were with us and they also would recommend this brewery to their friends.

I am a moderate beer drinker, often preferring red wine to beer. I have a new appreciation of the range boutique beers can be like. I came away with a dozen beers and a couple engraved glasses to remember this experience ... both interesting and fun!

What can I say? Absolutely brilliant, please don?t go so I can go many, many times without being told that the tour is full! Informative, tasty, friendly, historic, sociable and many many more adjectives! Cu Friday to pick up our beers. BRILLIANT!

If you're near St Andrews or Dundee then do arrange a trip and tasting at this micro brewery. You'll be made very welcome indeed and the beers are wonderful. They have a wee shop too so you'll not go home empty handed.

Takes about am hour or so but its done in a nice friendly way. The guide is knowledgeable and keeps you interested with facts and history. You get a beer on arrival then at the end you get a taster of a selection of their fine beers, each with an explanation of the beers. Then you have the opportunity to buy some beers/clothing to take home. We enjoyed it do much, we are already planning to return in the new year.

4 of us visited this small brewery and were all impressed with the very friendly welcome and knowledgable tour. After the tour we were given plenty of the local beers to taste.
