The beer subscription club, Beer52, has unveiled its new office in Edinburgh amid launch of its new wine club, Wine52.

Inspired by themes of fun, colour and inclusivity, the Beer52 new post-pandemic headquarters have been unveiled in Edinburgh.

Partly inspired by Willy Wonka’s eccentricity and boldness, the new workspace has giant zigzag floors, colourful arched doorways and bespoke murals adorning the walls.

Beer52 staff have a ‘hybrid working’ model - where half the working week takes place at home - making the new premises reflective of the changing focus of the office as a hub for in person collaboration, socialising and events.

The office also have its own microbrewery, on-demand yoga classes, fresh beer on tap and a wood fired pizza oven.

There's also a tasting room with flip-top leaf tables that allow for blind wine tastings, with employees offered the opportunity to study for and sit their WSET qualifications at work.

Designed in collaboration with award-winning Scottish firm JA!COCO!, which has steered interior designs for capital favourites Superico, Civerinos and Hula.

And as the fast-growing drinks subscription service prepares to create up to 50 new jobs across customer services, finance, HR, marketing and logistics, landing that dream will soon become a reality for many.

Anouska Scott, Head of People at Beer52 said: “Since its inception Beer52 has constantly pushed the envelope on what it means to be different and innovative.

“When designing our new HQ we really wanted to shake up perceptions of what ‘the office’ means and create a space where our team feels creative, inspired, valued and fulfilled.

“With 50 new team members set to join our existing staff base of 100, we can’t wait to welcome them in, and to continue to cement Beer52 as one of the best places to work in Scotland, if not the world.”
