Walkers get to sample new pint

Anyone climbing Corbert, Ben Y Vrackie above Pitlochry, can claim a special liquid reward by posing for a picture of themselves at the summit and posting it on local pub McKays Bar and Restaurant’s website.
If staff are convinced the peak is indeed Ben Y Vrackie or ‘Speckled Mountain’ the lucky walker in the photo will get to sample Perthshire’s newest drink Ben Y Vrackie lager which is brewed by Belhaven. McKays are to give away 100 free pints of Ben Y Vrackie lager but only to those who get their boots on and can prove their achievement in reaching the top.
The lager which has just been officially launched at McKays. Richard Drummond of McKays says, “The whole idea is to make this fun but it also encourages and rewards people for getting their hiking boots on and getting up Ben Y Vrackie, which offers incredible views over Pitlochry and beyond. You can see Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh on a clear day. I think most walkers will agree that enjoying a drink at the end of a walk is a great way to mark the achievement and, although we wanted to let people taste our new lager, we wanted them to feel they had earned it by achieving something they would remember.” If you want to take part in the challenge – simply scale the mountain, take a picture of yourself at the summit and post it on www.mckayshotel.co.uk/benyvrackie.
The challenge supports the “Climbed It, Drank It, Loved It” campaign to get people active in their local countryside.
