Breweries in the North-east have been featured on a national craft beer map.
VisitScotland created the promotional tool that bears the details of more than 70 producers, which aims to encourage visitors to celebrate Hogmanay at Scotland’s many craft beer hotspots.
Eight brewers from the North-east are featured on the virtual map: Brew Toon in Peterhead, BrewDog in Ellon, the Deeside Brewery and Distillery in Banchory; Fierce Beer in Aberdeen; Keith Brewery Ltd in Keith, Platform 22 in Torphins, Six Degrees North in Laurencekirk and the Spey Valley Brewery in Keith.
Virtual visitors will be able to explore the beers by region, discover new favourite brands and even organise tours and tastings.
Steve Duncan, VisitScotland marketing manager, said: “Beer is pretty big business in Scotland.
“With more than 115 breweries, the variety and quality of beer and ale being produced and served in Scotland’s bars and pubs, and available in our shops and super-markets, is greater than ever.
“This new interactive map has been created to make it easy for visitors to include a brewery tour as part of a holiday or short break in Scotland.
“As we head towards Hogmanay and with Burns Night in January on the horizon, this is an ideal time to put Scotland’s breweries on the map and inspire visitors to include a visit to a brewery in their 2018 travel plans.“
Caroline Wengel, the Brewers Association of Scotland’s business development manager, said: “This new interactive map will help tourists discover breweries to visit and beers to try during their trip.”
