Best Scottish beers?

There seem to be loads to be had in the supermarkets at the moment with some good offers on too - the likes of Innis and Gunn are superb and some of the Harvieston ales. Tried the Stewarts 'Doppelbock' in a pub recently and it was amazing. As good as the German Bock I've tried.

I'm not a beer drinker (women of my generation, generally aren't).. but my husband is an afficionado of the Caley Breweries beers.

Caley's McEwans Champion is a good one. Not tried their others though.

I tried McEwans Champion a while back and it was pretty strong. One of my favourites at the moment is Belhaven St Andrews Ale.

I think so. Their Jacobite Ale is superb.

Devon ales

So far have tasted no better than the "devon ales" - local produce of Clackmannashire. The Micro-brewery is located (hidden?) at the Mansefield Arms inn (Sauchie village). The fact they're little known, is a real plus to me!!
