Fyne Ales and Stewart slug it out in Edinburgh and Glasgow
No actual fisticuffs will be involved, but Glasgow illustrator Tom Holmes has produced a suitably lurid poster in the style of old boxing promotions.
In the blue corner, Stewart Brewing of Edinburgh, cocky after having seen off Harviestoun and Williams Bros in previous episodes of this series.
In the red corner, Fyne Ales of Argyll, whose sideboard full of awards should have them quietly confident about taking on any brewery in Scotland.
Both breweries have made a flavoured stout: Fyne’s is [redacted in the interests of keeping everyone in suspense — see comments] while Stewart are remaining tight-lipped about precisely what has gone into their brew.
Tickets are a fiver here or at the venues – Holyrood 9A in Edinburgh and Inn Deep in Glasgow, which gets you half a pint of each beer and the fuzzy feeling of knowing that the proceeds are going to charidee – Yorkhill hospital in Glasgow and Aberlour in Edinburgh.
