Plant A Tree, Grow a Brewery

You may remember last year we were planting trees at our brewery as part of our Crowdfunder campaign. You may have purchased one yourself?

Well, those trees are well & truly on their way to ensuring that our wee brewery does not flood every winter and will also help us reduce our carbon footprint in the beautiful Scottish Borders village of Broughton.

It was always our intention to ‘grow’ this initiative and plant more trees and give you, our loyal Broughton fans the chance to join in and own your little part of our brewery too, in turn helping us produce award-winning craft beers and real ales for many years to come.

We’ll be launching our new Plant A Tree Beer Case where you’ll be able to buy your very own tree and also get some brilliant Broughton beers in the process! Live from Sunday 1st August, you can get your very own mixed case of beer and we will plant a tree at our brewery in your name.

You can choose between a case of HOPO craft beers or a case of Jock, Scottish real ales or, if you’re a lager drinker, we haven’t forgotten you and you can choose a case of HOPO Craft Lager to go with your tree. We’ll also send you your own digital certificate as thanks for planting your tree at Broughton Brewery so you can show that you’re doing your own bit in keeping Scotland green & sustainable!

In addition to the benefits it will have to us as a business, this year we see COP26 coming to Glasgow and we’re excited to get involved in everything Scotland is doing to combat climate change and keep our wee country green and thriving. The eyes of the world will be on Scotland in October this year, so let’s welcome the world with open arms and show them just how progressive and committed to sustainability we are. And let’s also serve some great beer to go with it!

COP26 Poster

Glasgow was chosen by the UK to host COP26 due to its experience, commitment to sustainability and world-class facilities.

The ‘Dear Green Place’ is the perfect place to host a sustainable and inclusive COP. It has set a target for carbon neutrality by 2030, aims to be one of the greenest cities in Europe through its Sustainable Glasgow campaign, and is 4th in the world in the Global Destination Sustainability Index.

It also has a proven track record of hosting events on the international stage, such as the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the 2018 Glasgow European Gymnastic Championships.

Surrounded by the river, the city and its parks, the location will inspire attendees to tackle climate change and protect the planet for future generations.
