History & Scottish Influences
Scotland has some of the best real ales in the World, (even if they are less known than their English counterparts) with innovation and experimentation rife in what is a relatively young and expanding, national industry.
This current time brings a period of renaissance for Scottish beers; with new & exciting breweries such as Brewdog on the East Coast and the Highland Brewing Company in Orkney, wowing the market with creative, quality products. Yet they join a long list of established Scottish Breweries and add to the fast growing reputation of premium Scottish beer both at home and to a rapidly expanding foreign market.
Scottish Real Ales are something for us to be proud of; and in response to this growing popularity, The Scottish Real Ale trail, (www.scotlandsrealaletrail.com) has been created to enable real ale fans to find out more about Scottish beer, the breweries and the brewers themselves.
