About us

The Scottish Beer & Pub Association is the leading body representing Scotland’s brewers and pub companies. It was formed over a century ago as The Brewing Association of Scotland and today is part of the British Beer & Pub Association, originally founded as the Brewers’ Society in 1904.

We champion issues that matter to the Scottish beer and pub industry. These are causes our members are passionate about; whether it's promoting great Scottish beer, or campaigning against increases to beer duty and businesses rates that are so damaging to community pubs.

As part of the wider British Beer & Pub Association, our members are responsible for 90% of the beer brewed across the UK today and we represent around 20,000 of the country’s pubs. They include international companies, family brewers, managed locals and the nation’s largest tenanted pub estates. It’s a diverse group, but we are passionate about representing, supporting and campaigning for the wellbeing of the beer and pub sector.
