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.
Thanks to Fat Phil and his Top Raters stats, I can now answer my own question
Top 50 cutoffs for Scottish regions are as follows
Central Scotland 66
Dumfries & Galloway 5
Dunb / Argyll / Bute 30
Highlands / Western Isles 39

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).
We actually say foos yer doos in the Grampian region.
I just spelt it incorrectly then!
Fit Ma Loon?
I demand a recount.
