Innis and Gunn close Leith Taproom


Perth-based brewer Innis and Gunn have closed their Taproom in Leith as a result of soaring costs and the cost of living crisis. It follows the closure of their Dundee taproom last year, saying at the time that a “sharp rise” in operating costs and drop in footfall meant that it had to close. The popular bar opened in Leith in 2020 and was their second Edinburgh taproom.

The brewer was founded in 2003 by Master Brewer, Dougal Gunn Sharp, opening its first taproom in Edinburgh’s Lothian Road in the summer of 2015 before opening in Dundee in 2016 and then in St Andrews in the spring of 2017 which later closed.

The brewer now has three taprooms in Scotland, as well as Edinburgh’s Lothian Road, they have two taprooms in Glasgow in Ashton Lane in the city’s West End which opened in 2017, and the city’s second taproom in West Nile Street which opened in November 2022.
