Brewers Support Fund

This fund is to support Scotland's brewing sector.  The Scottish Government recognises that this sector has faced unprecedented challenges since March 2020 as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This fund will be administered through local authorities and will provide one-off grants of up to £30,000 to eligible businesses.  The level of grant awarded will depend on the rateable value of the premises in which the brewery is located and will also take into account annual protection level.  Awards will be as follows:

  • £10,000 for premises which have a rateable value of up to and including £18,000
  • £25,000 for premises which have a rateable value of £18,001 or above
  • £30,000 for a property from which they operate with a rateable value of over £51,000 or production over 5,000HL in 2019

Local authorities will contact breweries in the area directly to seek the necessary information to confirm their eligibility and process payment.  You do not need to contact us.
