Why we launched this campaign?

The COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty and challenges that threatens the livelihood and survival for  millions of British small businesses.  The Ferry Brewery is no exception. 

For the past 3 years we been relentless in building our brewery but have now been impacted with zero sales to pubs, retail outlets and closure of our tap bar, shop and cancellation of our tours. Many of the annual festivals we attend or supply have been cancelled or postponed.  Yet we are still required to meet financial obligations including our staff, rent, utilities and other suppliers’ costs at a time when we have limited sales.  As you know, the uncertainty due to this pandemic, is and will continue to be a real struggle for us over the next few months.    

Through your encouragement and with the help of a loyal customer , we were able to quickly set up a web page so that we can provide you with a local delivery service to bring you our tasty beers.  We are truly grateful and appreciative of our community and other areas for your continued support through online sales in these difficult times.  Many of you have sent us words of encouragement and we are truly humbled by your amazing outpouring of support.

So, instead of feeling down, we decided to get positive!


There are so many of you who have helped us get to where we are today and we are truly thankful for that.  Many of you have shared your excitement about our story, our brewery and our award-winning beers!   We are at a particularly vulnerable time in our journey and need your help to get us through this period of uncertainty.   

What we offer you is great value when you support us by buying ‘PAY IT FORWARD VOUCHERS’.  For every £ you pledge, you will get more value in beer and additional rewards for your pledge.  

Vouchers may be redeemed for beers, tours and merchandise through our online shop and at our tap bar and shop (when we are open).    Our 10% Membership Discount Card can be used once your vouchers are at a zero balance.  

Your support will help tremendously for the significant loss of sales until the worst has passed and give us an opportunity to keep the only brewery in the Ferry, since 1851, alive.

Who we are

We are a part of the beautiful waterfront community of South Queensferry, 'The Ferry'.

We are the first and only brewery in the Ferry since 1851, known for our tasty beers, warm and friendly atmosphere in our tap bar and our customers enjoy our beer experiences – tours, private parties, events and festivals. An Independent, multi award-winning brewery with a variety of beers. We are proud to have our brewery Tap Bar listed in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide for the second year running. 

Over the years we have been fortunate enough to be in a position to partner with others for charitable events, to donate to special causes, charities, schools, churches, sports clubs and individuals.  We look forward to continuing this and being involved in our community.

We are sorry that we can’t give you an exact date when you will be able to visit us to enjoy our tours, events, chat and laughter over a few beers.  However, as soon as we are given the all clear and the Scottish government have eased the lockdown for our industry, we look forward to opening our doors again and to continuing this amazing beer and historic journey with you as part of our Ferry Family. 

Stay safe and healthy and thanks very much for your support!

From Team FerryBrewery!
