Reviewed 11 September 2013

Came here in September with my husband & friends,to be honest not expecting too much .The wee hour or so we had here was brilliant,with the guide Bruce being an absolute gem !Had a great time ,found out some interesting facts and for £3 it is a must!We all came out rather tipsy after sampling many beers so leave the car behind!

“Terrific tipsy tour!!!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We arrived at the brewery in good time to have a look around the shop before we started the tour.
We where meet by "Bruce" our tour guide (excellent Scottish accent!)

He gave us a little background info on the brewery, brewing in Scotland during the ages and let us have a sniff or taste if you dare of the hops they use.

We where then led into the brewery where we had a brief but informative tour of the premises, then onto the more important bit, the tasting!!!

It is a this point that all other brewery's should take note on how to be an excellent host!!

The tasting included drinking a multitude (at least 10) different ales that they brew on the premises. With a quick intro to each one.

Overall I would say this is the best brewery tour that I have ever been on (and that's quite a few!!)

It had value for money, a great guide and I left slightly tipsy :)

What more could you want for £3!!!!

“Delightful visit!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Lovely people, great beer - opportunities for tasting their permanent and seasonal beers (some with very entertaining names!) and needless to say, we bought quite a lot to take home.

“Killer Brewsky!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

My favorite beer in the U.S. is Sam Adams, this is right up there. Very flavorful, not light and wimpy like many standard brews. The tasting experience and shop were great, very friendly, informative folks. Very comfortable setting, just belly right up to the bar!

“Top Tour”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Spent my birthday weekend in Aviemore, and one of the highlights was the visit here. The tour was really cheap and great value. Recommend it to anyone. You see all you need to, and then the beer tasting starts :D Really great to taste all the brews one after the other to get a taste for which ones you like. We bought a few souvenirs and left very merry.
