Home / 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.


Our Home


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.

71 Brewing shown as part of the old sprawling Blackness Ironworks complex, dominating the Blackness neighbourhood of Dundee. Much of the facility has been torn-down following the Second World War.

The mighty Blackness ironworks - one of the last heavy industries in Dundee, and war-time target for bombing.


Tap Room

Due to our continued expansion our previous taproom is no longer open.

We are in the process of renovating our upper floors into a brand new, purpose built taproom, learning area, and event space.

Beer garden

Originally a temporary covid replacement for our taproom, our 100-person beer garden is now a permanent fixture at 71 Brewing.
