Slow Food Youth Network Scotland:
Visit to Pilot Brewery.
Slow Food Youth Network Scotland will be visiting Pilot's brewery in Leith on the evening of Wednesday 9th March. Matt and Patrick from Pilot will show us how brewing works, tell us about the current craft beer scene in Scotland, how to tell a good beer from a bad beer, give us an honest insight into how difficult it has been to set up a new brewery and break into the market, and give us a tasting of the beers they're taking to the Great Scottish Beer Celebration in Glasgow.
Wednesday 9th March 2016
6.30pm, £5 charge on door, At Pilot Brewery, 22 Jane Street, Leith, Edinburgh. EH6 5HD.
Places are strictly limited and there will be a £5 charge on the door to cover costs of tastings.
Please email email@example.com asap to book your place.
Pilot was born when Matt Johnson and Patrick Jones met while studying for masters degrees in Brewing & Distilling at Heriot-Watt University in 2012, and it’s still just the two of them. A shared view that there was something different to be done in brewing – not traditional real ales, but not just another U.S. craft beer clone either – led to home-brewing together, which eventually led to buying a second-hand brewhouse and moving to the heart of cosmopolitan Leith, commencing brewing right at the end of 2013. Check out their current range of beers and find out more about them on their website.
What is the Slow Food Youth Network?
The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) is an international network of young people who bring about changes in the field of food production and consumption. It was founded by a number of enthusiastic and motivated young people with a passion for good, clean and fair food, and with an interest in sustainability issues.
We are the world's future leaders, entrepreneurs, farmers and consumers. The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) was founded to make youth familiar with Slow Food's philosophy that says that all food should be Good, Clean and Fair. This means that food should be prepared with care and respect, grown as sustainable as possible and that the farmers and producers should get a fair wage.
SFYN raises awareness among young citizens and consumers to encourage and mobilize them in making responsible choices. It wants them to take part in the public debate about current issues, such as how to feed the world, what to do about food waste, and how to produce food as sustainable as possible.
