Bo'ness Real Ale Appreciation Society

Festival Beer List - 2008
Sunday, 03 August 2008 00:00

Each year BRAAS attempts to offer a good selection of the available ales and beers from our local Central Scotland brewers.

This year is no different and, in fact, there are 3 new breweries and 9 new beers to the festival and a real cider for you to try.

Unfortunately, the bad news is that Fowlers/Prestonpans Brewery is temporarily not producing. The brewer left to work with, I think, The Black Isle Brewery. It is hoped that they can get production going again as their beers were very good and growing in popularity.
