Beer lovers will flock to an Aberdeenshire town later this year as a popular Deeside event spreads its wings.

The Inverurie Beer Festival will be held at the Thainstone Exchange in the late autumn.

It is being organised by brothers, Mungo and Guy Finlayson, the team behind the hugely successful Banchory Beer Festival and this year’s mini-gathering, Beer at the Barn.

Fans can expect to enjoy the best of the festival’s three signature drinks – beers, ciders and gins – and perhaps even a specially-crafted “Inverurie Brew”.

Mungo, 25, said: “We had always wanted to try to upscale what we did with Banchory to other local towns.

“We kind of thought Aberdeen is too big to be going to next and Stonehaven already has something, so we approached Thainstone and apparently they have been looking to do something like this.”

He added that the pair were hoping to attract the Banchory faithful along with new beer-lovers from of other reaches of Aberdeenshire.

Mr Finlayson said: “Inverurie has got a big catchment area, big train links and good bus links. There will be people from Banchory way and people from Huntly way coming down.

“There will be beer, cider, gin and probably because of the size – a festival brew like the “Banchory Brew” we did last year.

“There will be a couple of food stands, live music throughout the day.”

The dates for the event will be announced at a later stage.

This year’s Banchory Beer Festival will run from August 7-9.
