Heverlee Debuts Packaged Product

If you were in Edinburgh over the weekend of the 21st July you may have seen the transformation by Heverlee of the disused New Waverley arches into a Belgium themed micro festival. It boasted the summer beer garden lifestyle of the brand’s home country. Heverlee at New Waverley followed on from the Heverlee at Tontine pop-up Belgian beer café which ran during Glasgow’s Merchant City festival in 2015. The brand also showcased its new 330ml cans of Heverlee pils, the very first time Heverlee has been available in cans and bottles. The 330ml can will roll out widely across the on and off trade later in the year, with a 660ml bottle also set to be available soon.
