SIBA comments on the Scottish Brewers Support Fund
Commenting on the announcement of the Scottish Brewers Support Fund, SIBA Chief Executive James Calder said:
“Beleaguered small breweries have been some of the hardest hit by the Covid pandemic and seen their sales drain away with the closure of pubs. In these tough times it is hugely welcome that the Scottish Government has listened to our concerns and worked with SIBA to develop a new funding scheme specifically for small breweries in Scotland.
“For the first time in this crisis there is now targeted support for small breweries. We hope that the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak and the devolved Governments in Wales and Northern Ireland now replicate this announcement to provide support to every small independent brewery in the land.”
