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.

“Nice Ale and a warm welcom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Came past here after seeing the sign from the road....

As you walk in the selection on the wall is impressive. We sat down for the tasters of 1/3 pints of those on Tap. Certainly preferred the darker ale (Maverick & Highlander) from the lighter ones (Rune & Jarl), but that is just my preference. The Rune is seasonal and just available when the Hops they use are available. Seating outside or inside, the bar area is tasteful and the staff is friendly. Pulling the selection in less than 1/3 rds for us with no issue.

Nice lay-out with the bar stools and the couple of tables inside, certainly not to be a huge place for big parties, probably the reason one lane road so the coaches can't get in :) as it will certainly ruin it.

Will come here again for sure to taste the other beer on offer.

Only popped in to see where the place was and on the off chance there might be a shop. Will try to have a bite next time and maybe do the tour. Fantastic place!!

“Fyne Place to drop into”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We're regulars here as my hubby loves their ale. It has a nice welcoming feel about the place & the added bonus that dogs are allowed in the bar as well as the courtyard. Staff really helpful and in a beautiful part of the world.
Also went to the Fyne Fest for first time this year too organised in and held at Fyne Brewery - well worth trying out this beer, music & food festival in 2015 if you haven't already.
Only negative thing I can say is the food on offer is very limited and overpriced for portion sizes.

“Glad we came! Brewery tour recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We were staying in Inveraray and wanted to investigate the local brew. So glad we did. For a small fee, we had a tour around the old brewery while the shiny new state of the art one is being built. It was nice to see the original site and hear about its story. Returning to the small bar for some tasters and an informal lesson on the flavours of the ales, it was then our duty to buy some for sharing with friends at home. I wish them luck and hope I can find some Hurricane jack and Jarl available without the long trip to Scotland.
