One for the road

Black Isle Brewery has released a beer to celebrate ‘Scotland’s Route 66’.

• The new Black Isle IPA.

North Coast 500 IPA is a 4% hoppy session ale, described as “perfect to slake the thirst after a day on the road”. It was designed in partnership with North Coast 500, the organisation promoting a 500-mile tourist route around the northern edges of mainland Scotland.

Black Isle’s founder, David Gladwin, said the launch of the North Coast 500 initiative had “created a significant boost to the Highland economy”.
