Plans have been lodged to convert a garage into a micro brewery.
Proposals have been submitted to Moray Council for the conversion of the garage at Brackenbrae, Wardend, Birnie, near Elgin.
Applicant Ray McLean stated in planning documents: “The aim to open a small brewery that lives up to the reputation Moray has for producing high quality, high-end alcoholic beverages.”
He added: “Brewing itself is a quiet process without noisy machinery.
“The steam produced during the process may occasionally be noticeable, this would only be during the boil – a maximum of three hours per brew day.”
