Molly's Scotland Pre-Trip

FHB is gearing up for its first "educational" international beer vacation in October!  We're taking 16 people around Scotland for ten days and we couldn't be more pumped.  FHB co-owner Molly got to do a quick pre-trip last week to check everything out to make sure the company trip goes smoothly and had a great time.  Here are some random pictures from her trip.  (And a chill-out video of Loch Ness above.)

 A barley field in Aberdeenshire.  Some of our grain probably comes from a field very near this one.

Scottish beer = VERY GOOD.

Haggis "crisps"  =  an acquired taste

It was pretty crowded at times due to August being the "high season" in Scotland.  It will be more serene during October when FHB goes.  This picture is what happens when a Spanish tour bus spots a really cute Scottish "coo" (highland cow).

The weather was pleasingly misty and spooky!  Nice atmosphere for castle wandering and sitting by the fire in pubs.  Here are some more atmosphere pics below.  Looking forward to the real trip in October!  We're also looking forward to planning more trips, so watch the newsletter for an announcement this winter some time for news about more travels.
