Fancy meeting the leading ladies of the Scottish beer scene? Join us.

Join us on a beery adventure

The ladies of ScotBeer will take you on an adventure through the history of women in brewing from the beer goddesses of Romans and Vikings to the dark tales of alewives and onto post-WWII mass advertising that saw beer consumption become a symbol of masculinity.

As you travel through the story of women in beer, you'll sample 8 beers from across Scotland and the world. These beers will cover a diverse range of flavour profiles that will surprise and delight. Never found a beer you liked? This is a great way to discover what makes your tastebuds happy.

After the tasting there will be the option to stay on for a bite of lunch.
