Product description


Malt-driven flavours dominate the flavour profile from a combination of Melanoidin, Special B, and Crystal Malt, while Ernest and Olicana hops work with an unusual choice of NEIPA yeast to enhance the unique fruity character. Notes of figs, dates and dried cherries become apparent with the addition of Kawa Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee, and added vanilla rounds out the overall sweetness.

More info about Vault City

Big flavours and bright colours, that’s what you can expect from Vault City Brewing. We’re the UK’s biggest sour beer producer and we’ve been making fruit-forward, modern sour beers in Edinburgh since 2018.  

Our mixed fermentation style and distinctive house culture create the perfect base for real fruit ingredients, which gives our beer its intense aroma and flavour, not to mention the eye-catching colours.  

You’ll find Vault City Brewing in the seaside suburb of Portobello, Edinburgh, where we brew almost 500,000 litres of beer each year.  

Our Edinburgh taprooms are home to some of the freshest Vault City beer you’ll ever try. The Wee Vault has more taps than seats, so this cosy Haymarket craft beer bar could be your new favourite place to sample sours, or just a scheduled stop-off before a brisk 2-minute walk to Haymarket train station.  

Porty Vault, our taproom & smokehouse is a stones’ throw from Portobello beach, and closer still to our brewery. With 36 taps there’s plenty for the craft beer connoisseur, alongside a variety of other drinks from coffee to cocktails. As if that’s not enough, our Portobello paradise serves low ‘n’ slow BBQ food across lunch and dinner from our authentic American smoker. 

We shipacross the UK from our web shop, but if you’d like to get your hands on some Vault City beers in the wild, we stock our latest releases in cans and on draught at a number of independent bottle shops, craft beer bars, taprooms, hotels and pubs.
