Scottish brewers Brewmesiter sold bottles of Yes and No lager for a week ahead of the referendum.

A total of 946 bottles were sold between Monday, September 8 September and Sunday, September 14.

The Yes beers took 87% of the sales (785 bottles) with only 161 bottles of No beer being sold 17%.

The beers were launched at the brewery by supporters of the different campaigns, and encouraged fans to think about the debate over a pint.

Lots of people took part in the ‘beer’ referendum, and sales and marketing manager Lewis Shand was pleased with the results, saying: “I am delighted that so many people participated in our craft beer referendum – proving that beer fans are extremely passionate about the debate on our country’s future. The idea behind the ballot beers was that every other cross-section of Scottish society has been polled on the future of the county, one of the biggest decisions facing this generation, so we though beer drinkers should have their say too.”
