Loanhead brewer toasts beer award

A Loanhead beer has been crowned as the Society of Independent Brewers’ Association Scotland’s Bottled Beer Champion.

Stewart Brewing’s Hollyrood beat strong competition to win the title of SIBA Scotland Regional Bottled Beer Champion after winning the bottled bitters (over five per cent) category earlier in the competition.

The contest involved a taste-off against more than 67 entries from 17 of the best Scottish breweries, including Williams Bros Brewery (who gained silver and bronze winners), Cairngorm, Harviestoun, Inveralmond, Fyne Ales and Black Isle.
