Brewing Society

Established in 1985, we are passionate about growing our society and sharing our love for all things beer!


Heriot-Watt Brewing Society is open to all. Those who enjoy brewing, drinking great beer or those who just like a good chin wag. The society is a great place to meet new people and expand your own knowledge of this wonderful beverage. If you are a beer enthusiast or complete beginner, this is the society for you. 


About Us:

We have a fantastic line up of events for 2020/21 to give you the full Heriot-Watt Brewing Society experience. Be assured your safety is paramount to us and we will make sure that we follow the government guidlines in regards to Covid-19. 

Over the coming academic year, the society has a lot planned including; virtual beer tastings, brew days and 'meet the brewer' talks. New events willl be added throughout the year. We are hoping to run our famous 35th Beer Festival in March 2021, depending on Covid-19 restrictions. 

Keep an eye out on our social media for updates or contact us anytime with any enquiries:
