  • Adult meet up - Aberdeen, BrewDog DogTap Brewery Tour

    Starts: 22 Apr 2017 12:00
    Ends: 22 Apr 2017 15:00

    Our very first Scotland Adult meet up will take place on Saturday 22nd April in Ellon, Aberdeen and is open to all adults living in Scotland who were born with a cleft lip and/or palate.  So for our first meet up we are off to Brewdog to see how they make their famous Brewdog beer! The DogTour lasts approx 90mins with 4 amazing interactive tastings along the way. Following the tour there will be an opportunity to meet in the bar and if you wish purchase some lunch.  For anyone unable to make the Tour they can book to pop along to meet afterwards.  We would still like you to register for this so we know to expect you! CLAPA will be paying for the Tour, however any drinks/food purchased at the bar will be at your own expense. Number 67 & 68 buses run regularly from Aberdeen city centre to Ellon Park & Ride which is a short, thirst-inducing, walk away. We really hope you can join us on this first adult meet up which we hope to be the start of many more meet ups.  Details about where to meet etc will be sent out to those registered closer to the time. Any questions about the day should be directed to Gillian McCarthy, Senior Regional Coordinator - Scotland on either gillian.mccarthy@clapa.com or 07586 045402
