Indie Beer Scotland is organised by Scottish brewers from the not-for-profit trade association the Society of Independent Brewers, and aims to offer great value for money as well as the best possible range of beers in huge variety of styles – from hoppy IPAs and Pale Ales, to craft lagers, pilsners and stouts.

Indie Beer Scotland is also the home of the SIBA Scotland Independent Beer Awards 2023, with judging taking place to name Scotland’s very best beers prior to the festival opening to the public – making festival-goers the first to try Scotland’s Official best beers, with all this year’s winning beers available over the three sessions Friday to Saturday. Beers range from session strength lagers and pale ales of 4%, to barrel-aged imperial stouts and scotch ales which tip the scales at a punchy 10% abv or more.
