Lowland Brewing (LB) update

13th February 2018

We have received the in depth drawings from Homer Young of McGowan Miller in Dumfries and these have now been sent to the builders we have been dealing with in Lockerbie.

It is great to meet up with people I was at school with in Lockerbie and haven’t met for 30+ years!

We are submitting our Leader Application form on Monday the 26th of January and we have an excellent meeting last week with Ellen Grant from Dumfries and Galloway Council who gave us various pointers.

The purpose of the grant application is to match fund the LB resources for the building renovation and to equip the building with our stage one equipment for the large scale brewing of beer, which is mainly vats and kegs and some other smaller items.

I am working on the wording of the application and Tom is chasing up some more figures.

We are hopeful that building works can start to take place in April and with luck we might be producing beer by some time in June.

We are running a free beer tasting and tapas evening in Lockerbie on Friday the 23rd of March between 6pm and 9pm and everyone is invited for a chat and a beer to find out more about our plans for development in Lockerbie.

We have also opened dialogue with a group in Lockerbie about a potential site for a Lowland Brewery visitor centre to get us on the map and onto the Dumfries and Galloway Food and Drink trail. Being realistic (which is not one of my strong points!) this may happen in 2020 or 2021.

We are keen on the idea also of a festival which we would like to have up and running in 2019.

If anyone else would like to get a prospectus please email: or call the brewery mobile which is 07493716521, leave a message and we will get back to you.
