 About the Book 

Join the author and his old Dutch campervan Brian on their quest to visit every brewery in Scotland. Settle down in the passenger seat as you discover the world of beer in the land of whisky! Our journey will take you all over Scotland: to Unst, Britains most northerly island, to Islay, the spiritual home of Scotch whisky, and to Colonsay, the smallest island in the world with its own brewery! As we travel through many of the most remote and stunning parts of this wild and beautiful country, we also get to meet the people behind the pint. Like the two ex-RAF pilots who brew in the morning and do fighter jet training in the afternoon. Or the Englishman who has brewed beer for nearly 40 years in Scotlands oldest inhabited house. We also come across the siblings on Skye who run competing breweries in the shadow of the Cuillin mountain range. You might enjoy this story for the fabulous journey or perhaps for the amusing insights into our favourite drink, but probably both! Share in the joys and challenges of visiting sixty Scottish breweries and experience the freedom of campervan life. This book will leave you with a new perspective on beer, an affection for Brian and a personal desire to visit Scotland - the land of whisky?
