Beer Tent

Beer Tent

The "Beer Tent" is a classic part of a highland gathering. Part of the tradition of good fellowship, where members of different clans can congregate together and share a drink. The modern beer tent is  a great place to meet up with friends and watch the bands play, the dancers dance and the spectacle of the heavy of events.

Towards the end of the day you'll notice band members starting to gather around to quench their thirst (playing the pipes or drums is thirsty work).

Please drink responsibly 

This year we are pleased to announce that BentSpoke brewery has agreed to supply our official beer tent. Stop by the the tent for a some excellent Canberra craft beer, including a  special "Blow Your Bagpipe" Scottish Ale.

A Little bit about BentSpoke



BentSpoke Brewing Company

Winner of the 2015 AHA (ACT) Best New Venue Award, BentSpoke Brewing Co is an innovative microbrewery and taphouse located in the heart of Braddon, Canberra.

After an explosive opening in June 2014, selling 3000L of beer in the first week, BentSpoke Brewing Co has continued to evolve and cement itself in the Canberra beer scene. On the back of widespread support from appreciative patrons, BentSpoke created over 50 different brews and served in excess of 300,000L of beer and cider in just over 2 years of operation to critical acclaim. BentSpoke is now undergoing expansion into a second venue, which will also function as packaging and distribution facility for its increasingly popular beer.

At the Braddon brewpub you will find 18 varieties of beer and cider available at any one time, all brewed on premise. A wide range of beer styles are made by the award winning head brewer, as well as hand crushed apple cider, all on full display so you can watch the brew team at work while you sample a selection of brews.


Brews are available to purchase both over the bar and to take-away in custom-made two-litre, insulated “Travellers”.
