The 2nd annual Scottish Beer Awards were hosted in Edinburgh on Thursday 28 September. Local brewery & bar operator The St Andrews Brewing Company won two awards.

The “Brewpub” (as it’s commonly known) on south street St Andrews saw off stiff competition from much bigger businesses including Innis & Gunn, Drygate and Black Isle to claim “Beer Bar of the Year”.

The award was in recognition of both its overall outstanding quality and service, as well as, the bar’s dedication to showcasing of the best beers from the emerging Scottish Craft Drinks Industry.

In addition to the medal won by “Crail Ale” at the inaugural 2016 awards, this year St Andrews Brewing Company also collected a medal for their “Oatmeal Stout”.
Co-owner of St Andrews Brewing Company Philip Mackey commentated.

“This award is a great testament to the teamwork and sheer hard graft from everyone in the business, both in the brewery and at the bar. We’re genuinely honoured to be recognised in this way by our industry peers”.

“With St Andrews already being a superb shopping destination, hosting the ‘Scottish Beer Bar of The Year’ can only be a positive addition”.
