    When I started searching for ale from Dundee I thought that I had found lots until I saw that it was the Dundee Brewery in New York. However, I did find one.

    Although not strictly a seaport, Culzean castle where we stayed is on the coast and does overlook the Firth of Clyde, and therefore protects the seaport.
    I just could not resist adding this one.

    Since you have been covering lighthouses, Rob, I thought that I would try to give lightships a mention but I could only find one ale. It is named after the lightship in Boston U.S.A..

    Continuing up the Scottish coast, the next port is Arbroath.
    It is a pity that the ale commemorating the Stone of Arbroath is made in the U.S.A..

    Aberdeen is the next port. It seems to be a good place for tasting whiskies.

    I do like that stoneware bottle Dave.
    I could use that for enactments if it did not have the writing on it.

    The next Scottish port is Fraserburgh. Ginger beer is (or was) made there also.

    However the same brewer used to make stronger stuff.

    However there is still an independent brewery in Fraserburgh with some unusually named beers.

    Those two last were in the highest-percent-alcohol-competition. They were in the 40%+ range if I remember correctly.

    Now we're talking Jonas. 40% is getting there.
    Any more nautical brews from your neck of the woods.
    It seems to be just myself and Dave holding the fort at present.
