Scottish Proposal to Tighten Alcohol Regulations Would Ban Beer Festivals
A Scottish government proposal to regulate alcohol advertising and promotions more tightly could put an end to beer festivals, tap takeovers and meet-the-brewer events as well as stop small breweries from selling and advertising their beer online.
The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) has stepped up to oppose the proposals.
SIBA outlined its support for measures that target the harmful use of alcohol where there is clear evidence that it does so but have highlighted how the proposals, if implemented in full, will stifle small producers in Scotland, leading to fewer direct and indirect jobs in the supply chains which support them.
