VisitScotland : find your happy place!

Published on : Wednesday, December 27, 2017

unnamed (2)With the Hogmanay celebrations just around the corner, VisitScotland has brewed up its very first craft beer map.

 

It’s believed that beer has been brewed in Scotland for more than 5000 years and with more than 115 breweries, stretching from the Valhalla Brewery on Unst in Shetland to Portpatrick Brewery near Stranraer, Scotland is in the midst of a craft beer revolution.

 

Scotland’s Craft Beer Map will allow beer lovers to plot their very own ale adventures as they work their way around the country discovering some of the finest craft brews.

 

The new map currently holds details of more than 70 producers, with more expected to be added in future. Virtual visitors can explore beers by region, find their favourite brands and embark on tours and tastings.

 

Steve Duncan, VisitScotland Marketing Manager, said: “Beer is pretty big business in Scotland. With more than 115 breweries operating across the country, the variety and quality of beer and ale being produced and served in Scotland’s bars and pubs and available in our shops and supermarkets is greater than ever.

 

“This new interactive map, which can be easily updated, has been created to make it easy for visitors to include a brewery tour as part of a holiday or short break in Scotland as well as recognising the growing interest in Scotland’s craft beer sector.

 

“As we head towards Hogmanay and with Burns Night in January on the horizon, this is an ideal time to put Scotland’s breweries on the map and inspire visitors to include a visit to a brewery in their 2018 travel plans.“

 

Caroline Wengel, The Brewers Association of Scotland’s (TBAS) Business Development Manager, said: “We are delighted to be working with VisitScotland to help showcase Scotland’s diverse brewing industry. The Scottish food and drink story is a real success and the beer revolution is at the heart of it. We know that visitors to our country love to eat and drink locally made produce and this new interactive map will help tourists discover breweries to visit and beers to try during their trip.”
