Fyne Ales is located on a working farm in Argyll at the head of Loch Fyne, an area renowned for its excellent natural produce. We are a team who are passionate about brewing outstanding and progressive craft ales.We have a great bar on site, where you can sit and enjoy a tasting flight of a selection of our beers, or a few pints of your favourite. We also serve beef pies made from our own highland beef, which is also available to buy in the shop. Brewery tours can be arranged when the Brewers are available.

Visited here in February and really enjoyed a light snack and excellent beer. I did not like the first one and they gave me another, Jarl, which was more to my taste. Friendly efficient and informative staff. A great way to spend an hour or two. I last visited here in 2013 and, my goodness, they have gone from a... More

The tour of the brewery was the most informative I have ever been on. We were made most welcome and the guide not only was extremely knowledgable about the brewery and the brewing process but was more than happy to answer a barrage of questions I had. I could not recommend Fyne Ales enough.

Great day out with my finance. The girl behind the bar was very nice and the bar has a cosey atmosphere.

Popped in for a pint since the brewery was recommended by our Airbnb hosts. So glad we visited! Very friendly and helpful staff who explained all the beers in detail and shared fun info about the brewery. Since Scotland's laws are super strict with drinking and driving, we had 1/3 pint each and purchased some beers to take back with... More

Having walked the mountains in the stunning valley behind, a range of fantastic beers and wonderful home grown steak and ale pie couldn't have been more welcome. We walked past the cows grazing on the spent grain from the brewery - great sustainability story. They are clearly geared up for indecisive drinkers like me with their taster cups. Couldn't recommend... More

We usually pop in to stock up on some ales. The service can be quite slow and it seems there is usually only two people working trying to keep everyone happy which can be difficult in tourist season. It is quite an informal place for a bite to eat and a drink more like a shop with some tables/bar attached.... More

This is a great stop for a short break when driving. Lovely bar and helpful staff. You can get snacks, very limited choice as they don't have a kitchen but very tasty. Taster beer selection available in small measures.

This is a great tour of a very authentic local brewery that takes about 1- 1.5 hours. Sam was our guide and she was very knowledgeable and engaging. Tour starts with a walk around the 'old' original brewery that used to be a cattle shed and then onto their 'state-of-the-art' new plant. Sam talked through the brewing theory and history... More
