Edinburgh’s historic Caledonian Brewery has agreed a three-year deal to become the exclusive supplier of draught lagers and ales to Musselburgh Racecourse.

As part of the agreement – believed to be for a six-figure sum – the brewery, which is owned by Heineken, will host a new Caledonian Brewery Race Day in September. The meeting, which includes a £30,000 feature race, will coincide with a beer festival, showcasing Caledonian’s products including Flying Scotsman ale and Caledonian Three Hop craft lager.

The racecourse, which has enjoyed a 20-year relationship with Heineken, will replace current branding around the track and grounds with new Caledonian Brewery material.

Caley Brewery boss Andy Maddock, said: “We are excited to be involved with making our beer brands available for locals and visitors alike.”
