The Project



Natural Selection Brewing is a collaborative project between ourselves, four MSc students – Sean, Cameron, Gregor and Miles – at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, the International Centre for Brewing and Distilling, and renowned Edinburgh brewers Stewart Brewing.

The beer style changes each year. To date there has been:

  • Finch – a Robust Red Ale
  • Anorak – a Summer Wheat beer
  • Origin – New World Saison
  • Mutiny On the Beagle – an all-British IPA
  • Bitter Descent – Extra Special Bitter
  • The Volcan Wolf – a Black Berliner Weisse
  • Common Ancestor – A California Common

Through the course of the project each member of the team is given full control of the direction and an environment to further reinforce a greater understanding of development from prototyping recipes, product design, sales and marketing. The project continually evolves, and is now in its 8th year.

Continuously Diverging, Always Evolving
