Of course we pick the one day where they aren't actually giving tours.
So everyone else is tasting some of the goods -- me, I don't particularly like beer. So I'm happy just to enjoy the time out of the van on our way home.
But as we get ready to leave, the owner comes out going 'Are you guys from St Andrews?'
Why yes, we are indeed university students there. How can we help you, Mr Owner?
Turns out that they want to expand into St Andrews and would love suggestions on pubs we enjoy that may be a good market for them. We'd get free beer in exchange for the suggestions.
University students + free = why, of course.
So, I ended up with a free bottle just for offering town information.
And you know what? For someone who really isn't a beer fan (at all), it wasn't that bad. Totally split it when I got home, because lord knows I couldn't drink it all myself, but what I had wasn't bad. Light. Organic. Good with pizza.
I do vote distillery next time, though.
