Scottish Brewery Plans Disability-Friendly Taproom

News: August 2018

Glasgow’s Ride Brew Co. is to launch a crowdfunding campaign to open a new taproom that fully addresses disability issues.

Working with other local breweries, under the name of the Glasgow Brewery Collective, Ride aims to move to a new site in the city where it can create employment for people with disabilities who are struggling to get into work.

The venue will be equipped with a t-loop and will offer large-print and easy-read menus. The bar will have a lowered section to provide access to wheelchair users and lighting will be designed in consultation with people with visual impairments so as to be atmospheric and yet ensuring that signage remains easy to read.

The idea of the taproom was conceived by Dave Lannigan, Ride’s founder and head brewer, who is officially disabled through loss of hearing and suffers from ADHD and dyslexia.
