Brewing Up a Storm!

In a year of commemorations, one of the proudest in the community was the 150th anniversary of the founding of Langholm Rugby Football Club.

Given its status as the oldest club in the south of Scotland, the occasion was marked in style by Milntown’s finest from over the decades, and several dignitaries from further afield. But the celebration also had a contemporary air, as the newly-established Borderlands Brewery launched a special edition pale ale – with 1871 bottles produced in honour of the year that Langholm RFC came into being.

Since he started brewing locally last year, Stuart Campbell’s craft business has truly taken off, with his Esk Blonde beer the first to be available on tap in the town for a century. The remarkable reception that has greeted Stuart’s other amber nectar such as the Tarras IPA and Reiver Red has seen it served up at some of the finest venues either side of the border. And the release of a special Armstrong Ale even ensured an international following for the fledgling brand.

Here’s to many more successes in the years ahead!
