Our beer has been selected by the organisers of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open 2016 as the only craft beer to be featured at the golfing event which runs from Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th July.
Windswept was approached by organisers in May 2016 and will be selling four craft beers throughout the tournament. The Blonde and Wolf will be on draught, and single hop beers Typhoon and Tornado will be on offer in bottles, giving golfers and fans the chance to try out a range of flavours.
1300 pints worth of cask and bottled beer are on their way to Castle Stuart and we will be on standby to provide fresh supplies throughout the Open: the brewery is located only 40 minutes away from Castle Stuart Golf Links.
Nigel Tiddy, managing director of Windswept Brewing Company, said: “We’re a really small brewery, so this is a fantastic opportunity for us to let golfers and fans from across Scotland in on the secret.
“We’re an excellent match for the Scottish Open this year, as the golf courses across the north east of Scotland are undoubtedly windswept for most of the year.
“The Scottish Open’s organising team’s decision to source and supply a local, quality craft beer should be applauded.”
Peter Adams, director of international championships at the European Tour and the Scottish Open said: “The Scottish Open travels around Scotland every year and we always look for ways to work with local suppliers and producers; it makes sense to showcase the very best a region has to offer.
“Windswept’s handcrafted products are the epitome of the quality and inventiveness that the Scottish craft beer sector is known for. I’m sure our golfers and spectators will be interested in finding out more.”
“We were keen to offer our golfers and spectators the chance to experience Windswept’s handcrafted, high quality ales.
