Glasgow Brewery Collective

Scottish brewers raise the bar on inclusivity with social enterprise aimed at accessibility.

A Brewery Collective in Glasgow is launching a crowdfunding campaign to open a taproom with a focus on accessibility, as well as providing jobs for people with disabilities.

With a recent report from the government-backed Equality and Human Rights Commission stating that “more and more” disabled people are finding it difficult to “live independently” and be included, and participate, in their “communities on an equal basis”, a group of beer producers have set out to try to help alleviate the situation in one Scottish city.

Brewers from Ride Brew Co. of Glasgow, Late Night Hype Brewing Company from Clydebank and Bute Brew Co from the Isle of Bute are joining forces to start a new social enterprise dedicated to accessibility and providing well-paid meaningful employment for people with disabilities who are otherwise struggling to find work.
