Scots producers eye awards

SCOTTISH beer firms are set to contest no less than five gongs at the annual UK-wide Beer and Cider Marketing Awards.

Brewgooder, produced in partnership with Brewdog, has been shortlisted in the Best Corporate Responsibility and the Best Launch categories, the latter of which will also be contested by Bellfield Brewery.

Brewgooder’s Alan Mahon said: “To be shortlisted for these prestigious awards feels like a great achievement.”

Tennent’s has been shortlisted for the Best Online Marketing award, while the Edinburgh Beer Factory is up for Best Targeting of Alternative Markets.

Results will be revealed at the event in London’s Truman Brewery on September 21.
