Brewing Heritage Scotland

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries Scotland developed a global reputation for the quality of its beers, exporting as far afield as Russia, the Americas, India and Australasia.

The secret? High quality grain, abundant water, an entrepreneurial attitude, and an uncrushable belief that we could do it better than anyone else.

Brewing Heritage Scotland has been established to create a web-site and permanent exhibition which record the unique characteristics and achievements of this highly successful and innovative industry.

Its vision is to celebrate the Scottish brewing industry through its contribution to the Scottish economy and society, and to brewing science and technology.
