Scottish brewers welcome Brewers Support Fund
Today the Scottish Government has announced new funding to help small brewers impacted by the restrictions introduced to control the omicron variant. The Brewers Support Fund will provide direct support to small breweries in Scotland.
Responding to the announcement, Chief Executive of the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), James Calder said:
“Small brewers have been amongst the hardest hit by the Covid pandemic as they rely on community pubs for their sales. In these challenges times it is hugely welcome that the Scottish Government has again worked with SIBA and the sector to develop another round of the pivotal Brewers Support Fund specifically for small brewers in Scotland. Scottish brewers will be raising a cheer to the Cabinet Secretary for continuing to stand up for and support our sector.”
