Top Out’s craft beers appeal to discerning beer drinkers who seek out great tasting, original craft ales and find inspiration in our mountains. Our brew house just south of Edinburgh has been brewing acclaimed,unconventional beers since July 2013.
Inspired by brewers the world over, we aim to create the best craft beers we can imagine without compromise, influenced by German, Belgian, American and Scottish brewing traditions.
We have a growing stable of core beers and a steady stream of seasonal beers, from hoppy session pale ales and mouth-watering IPAs, to delicious altbier, wheat beer and smoked porter.
Our beers won four awards at the 1st Annual Berlin International Beer Competition. The Cone IPA and Smoked Porter won Gold medals. Simon Says-on won a very respectable bronze medal, while Top Out were proud to win ‘Scotland Brewery of the Year’!
Top Out’s beer labels show Ordnance Survey maps of famous, mostly Scottish mountains, because climbing is our Head Brewer, Michael Hopert’s, great passion.
This reflects the story under-pinning Top Out Brewery and that’s why each of our labels shows the route to the summit ‘topping out’ in the ‘O’ of Top Out.
Our tasty craft ales appeal to all craft ale enthusiasts, particularly anyone who loves Scotland’s mountain’s, and, let’s face it, that’s most of us! Find out more.
