Christmas will be very different this year, for all of us.   Due to Covid 19 Riverside Tap in Dumfries has been required to close, like so many other hospitality locations but we have not forgotten you and our team has been working hard to find ways to continue getting special beers to you from premium Scottish and EU brewers.    We are delighted to be working with the wonderful 'The Guild, Dumfries' which is running a charming festive popup shop in the Loreburne shopping centre, Dumfries, throughout December.  Throughout December the popup shop will showcase products from 70 talented local creators and suppliers and will offer you inspiration for special purchases for you, your home and unique gifts for your loved ones while also supporting The Guild in it's commendable work to facilitate much needed reinvigoration of the local community. Please take a look at their website by clicking here







As a small part of the popup shop, Beer Without Borders has a display of superb premium beers in gift packs and mini kegs for you, your families and friends to enjoy over the festive period.   We will rotate our display through a selection of premium beers from some of Scotland and the EU's best craft brewers.  Below you will find a list of beers currently available in the popup shop.   You can also purchase other beers from our range via Facebook messenger,  e mail, text or 'phone, for collection at the popup shop, or delivery.   We have new beers arriving all the time, including the much anticipated Portuguese import, new Scottish brewing partners and another import of artisan Spanish beers.   Most of our EU beers are imported by us directly from the breweries and are not generally available elsewhere in the UK.   We'll keep you updated with new arrivals as they reach us.

Also available to purchase at the popup shop are our popular 'Oh Deer, time for a beer' T shirts (£12), bobble hats, hand knitted in Nepal in pure wool, each one individual in style (£15) and Riverside Tap gift Vouchers (£10, £20 & £50).
