Winners list for 2017 Scottish Beer Awards

Scottish beer awards 2017 winners

WINNERS OF 2017 SCOTTISH BEER AWARDS ANNOUNCED

Last night saw the second Scottish Beer Awards in Edinburgh with the best beers brewed in Scotland revealed.

Brewdog won the top award of the night, Scottish Brewery of the Year.  The Scottish Beer Awards judges praised Brewdog for a monumental year of business. The Ellon-based business fought off four other breweries for the title after persuading the panel of their success in launching a US-based brewery and also completing a deal to sell off 22% of the business to a private equity house.

Hilary Jones, chair of the judging panel, commented;

“Whether breweries are large, small, independently owned or have attracted investment from elsewhere, the Scottish Beer Awards is for everyone brewing in Scotland. We unite in our congratulations of our winners and celebrate the success of the whole of Scottish brewing. I hope all our winners find future success with their medals and show the world how brilliant we are in Scotland at making great beer.”

Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director, ALDI Scotland, said:

“The quality of beer produced in Scotland is exceptional and we would like to congratulate everyone involved in this celebration of Scotland’s amazing brewing industry. We’re hugely proud to sponsor the Scottish Beer Awards for the second year running and to have worked with so many of the breweries recognised at these awards. The popularity of Scottish beer shows no signs of slowing down and we’re looking forward to seeing what’s next for the sector in Scotland.”
