  1. Wow.

There are four breweries (+1 closed one) listed in Ayrshire - the bottom three have five listed beers between them. It looks like even three might be a significant challenge for me…

All 5 of my Ayrshire ratings are from Ayr Brewery, they tend to get round Beer Festivals, when they happen that is.

Come on Glen Grampian is so much more than BrewDog. There is me for example.

I do enjoy Fierce beers, they keep me ticking over. There are people that chase every Brewdog beer going and I can’t compete with that.

I was ‘Best Man’ at a wedding in Ayrshire a few years ago, Stag Do was up there too, I think that’s where my rates come from. I did go to the CAMRA Scottish beer festival once as well, so they may have come from there?

I lived in Morayshire for three years, loved it (1985-1988).

However I did miss street lights, roundabouts and shops.

<*))))))><

I can’t remember ever seeing them in the almost 8 years I’ve been on RB. I could make a joke about Ayring my grievances but I won’t…

In my sillier moments I wonder if, for RB purposes, BrewDog should be its own region?

Always joked about Bermondsey being one too !

Not too bad for a Norwegian to be #45 (or was it 43?) - not to mention Rune as #25. Scotland is only a little more than 1 hour’s flight away for me, but this lockdown and travel prohibition is slowly getting on my nerves. Can’t go anywhere - so I’ll just have to pick up the Scottish stuff I can get from the stores here.

Are you sure you didn’t live in Moray 1885 - 1888?

Could have been I suppose @Scopey, nearest street lights were in Aberdeen and the A9 went through every village and hamlet from Falkirk to Inverness, took the stagecoach two days to reach Forres where I lived.

“Who’s You Do’s?” (that’s “How are your Pigeons?” in Morayshire speak).
