Bringing Edinburgh's Brewing History to Life
A nutrition student at Queen Margaret University and part of the ScotBeer Tours team, most weekends Jenny can be found holding her orange umbrella meeting visitors and locals to sample the best beers from across Scotland while guiding them through Edinburgh’s fascinating brewing history.
A keen home brewer, Jenny is always researching new styles, venues and brewing stories. She's passionate about bringing Scotland's brewing heritage to life, even going so far as to brew up an historic recipe for "Cock Ale" made with chicken! Read on to hear her thoughts about the current Scottish beer industry.
Is this really the golden age of the Scottish beer?
Maybe. Scottish beer is certainly an amazing product that is now getting recognised internationally. With over 130 breweries in Scotland and new ones opening each year, the new and bold beers they are producing certainly points to Scotland heading to a golden age of brewing. If we are already there, I’d say it’s just the beginning.
