Scotland's Real Ale Trail
www.scotlandsrealaletrail.com

Scotland's Real Ale Trail is being set up by a group of Scottish independent brewers. Visitors on the trail will get the opportunity to tour some of our world-famous breweries to learn more about Scottish real ales and, of course, sample a tasty tipple.

A Real Ale Trail website is also being set up with the VisitScotland funding.

Yvonne Cook heads up VisitScotland’s Challenge Fund team. She said: “The Real Ale Trail is a superb example of the kind of partnership initiative we need to encourage to achieve our objective of a 50% growth in tourism revenues by 2015.

“By linking up with attractions, bars and restaurants as well as breweries, the Real Ale Trail becomes something that benefits the wider industry — tourism really is everyone’s business.”

Douglas Ross, Scottish chairman of Society of Independent Brewing (Scotland), said: “The quality and diversity of Scottish beer and ales is at an all-time high, so it seemed that the time was right to develop a trail that would not only raise awareness of the product, but also provide a great way for visitors to see Scotland.

“It’s an exciting prospect for us to bring together over 50 Scottish breweries to work together for the first time to our mutual benefit, and provide an opportunity for other tourism businesses to get involved too.”

The trail will potentially take visitors to up to 50 breweries around Scotland, from Orkney to the Borders. It will be up and running later this year.
