Campaign launched to save Scotland's original indie brewery

Broughton Ales was Scotland’s first initiated micro-brewery when it started in 1979, and over the years it has won numerous brewing awards both domestically and internationally, including CAMRA awards in 2016, 2018 and 2019. They have now launched a crowdfunder campaign based upon 'Save the Brewery'.

The campaign has now launched HERE and is offering beer fans and supporters of local breweries the opportunity to either donate or support Broughton with very special rewards.

Based in the Scottish Borders, exclusive rewards include a Vintage Imperial Stout brewed 20 years ago, which will soon be available in bottles, is a 7.9% Russian Imperial Stout that you do not want to miss.

John Hunt, Director of Broughton Ales said "We are launching our Save the Brewery Crowdfunding campaign, to help ensure the survival of our independent, award-winning brewery. Broughton has been proudly supplying Scotland’s on-trade since 1979 and our appeal is to beer fans, across Scotland, the UK, and Europe to ensure small, independent brewers like Broughton are still here in 2021, brewing more award-winning beers. These are times of unprecedented challenge for the brewing industry with many pubs and bars still closed or operating at a reduced capacity."

"Normally at this time of year we would be seeing people out in bars or restaurants, drinking our hand-crafted beers and enjoying mixing with friends and relatives. Our rewards, including pledging to buy our Vintage Stout and the planting of commemorative trees at our brewery, will ensure our survival and allow supporters access to very unique rewards’’
