Edinburgh craft brewers Stewart Brewing are flush with success after sweeping the Scottish Beer Awards.

The brewery took home three gongs at the second annual awards ceremony, including Master Brewer of the Year.

Stewart Brewing co-founder Steve Stewart said: “Scotland is producing exceptional craft beer so we are extremely proud to receive these awards when up against so many high quality brewers.

“It’s a huge honour to have been named Master Brewer of the Year. I started Stewart Brewing with my wife Jo in 2004 with the mission to create craft beers of the highest quality.

“Awards like this prove that we are well on the way to realising that ambition.”

Stewart Brewing was founded in 2004 by husband and wife team Steve and Jo Stewart and has since expanded with a 50 hectare brewery site in Loanhead.

The brewery also took home the award for Product Development Team of the Year for the creation of its range of limited edition beers.

Stewart Brewing’s ‘They’re Coming to Get Rhu Barbara’ craft beer also took home a Gold award in the Best Sour Beer category.
