TWO LOCAL men have introduced their own brand of real ale to a Carnoustie pub.

The Aboukir Hotel cracked open the first keg from the MòR Brewery last Wednesday night to an appreciative company.

MòR Brewing Limited, based in the village of Kellas, is the brainchild of former Broughty Ferry lifeboat coxswain Jim Hughan and his business partner Ross Niven, Monifieth.

Jim said: “Demand for quality Scottish real ale is growing every year and we aim to make a big impression with our fine ales, hence the name MòR Brewing – MòR means ‘big’ or ‘great’ in Gaelic.”

Jim and Ross take advantage of the word ‘MòR’ to name their current five beers: ‘MòR–ish’; ‘MòR Tea Vicar?’; ‘MòR Please’; ‘MòR To The Point’ and ‘MòR The Merrier’.

Ross joked: “Our recipes are the product of many years of intensive research by both Jim and myself!” Guest of honour was Aboukir proprietor Dave Scorgie’s brother, Jimmy, a real ale expert from Newcastle, Australia.
