Born in the Borders is a real-ale microbrewery founded in 2011 as the Scottish Borders Brewery. It is located in a £500,000 visitor centre, which was built in 2014 from converted farm buildings and which also features two shops and a café/restaurant. The brewery is owned by John Henderson, who also owns the Cross Keys Inn in the nearby village of Ancrum. Local water is used in the production of the ales and the barley used comes from the surrounding fields.
