Modern beer brewed in Dundee

As Dundee’s first active brewery in over 50 years we are reviving the lost art of brewing in this vibrant city.
71 Brewing brewed our inaugural batch in The Old Foundry Building on Blackness Road back in 2016. We are an independent brewery crafting crisp lagers and small batch brews inspired by new-wave, modern brewing techniques, traditional European styles and superior quality ingredients.

Brewed in the buildings...

The home of 71 is a former ironworks towering out of the heart of an area known as ‘Hell’s Half Acre’. Spread over three floors and 27,000 sq feet, the brewery building formed a major part of the mighty Blackness iron foundry.

that gave Blackness its name

The sprawling Blackness Ironworks complex, dominated the Blackness neighbourhood of Dundee. Much of the facility has been torn-down following the Second World War though smoke stacks and buildings from the old facility still dot the neighbourhood.
