Scottish Craft Beer

There's an abundance of craft beer in Scotland, which in our books is a great thing! 

We're loving Tempest's offering at the moment, especially Long White Cloud and Red Eye Flight. 

What's currently filling your fridge?

    mmmm.... beer :)

    I had a significant birthday a few weeks ago and most people brought me beer/whisky so my fridge is very full. 

    Brewdog: Nanny State. It's the only non-alcoholic beer that I actually like. I've got shares so regularly have a stash of 5am Saint and Dead Pony club in the house. They can sometimes overdo it with the hops but generally their beer is worth the hype.

    Cromarty: Red Rocker
    Orkney Brewery: I don't think I've had anything of theirs that I didn't like. I've got Capercaillie (light ale) and Dark Island in at the moment. 

    Regular and brief visitors also include, Red Cuillin by Skye Brewery and Red Ness by Loch Ness Brewery. Sadly Loch Ness Brewery have stopped brewing for the moment, but hopefully they'll be back soon.

    Fierce beer are a new brewery based in Aberdeen, unusual but tasty flavours, definitely worth a try. And living in Aberdeen myself, I agree with @Leodhasach, and have to say I'm a big supporter of Brewdog!

    If you are over on the west side of the country then it is well worth the trip to Loch Fyne where you can find Fyne Ales.  These guys brew a number of Ales and none of them are anything other than great!  They do a tour of the brewery and have a lovely bar at the place too.  You can buy the beer in barrels, though this may not be the best idea! :smiley:

    I am a massive fan of Cromarty Brewing Company, especially Rogue Wave and Happy Chappy.

    Scapa Special from The Swannay Brewery is also particularly good.

    So many other great beers to choose from though. 

    Happy travels.

    I am heading to The Black Isle in October so will be dropping into The Black Isle Brewery and perhaps visit Davidston and The Cromarty Brewing Company. Will report back once the hangover clears :)

    My current favourite is The Eden Mill Breweries 'Bunker Brew', double IPA, is lovely.

    If the weather is right I love Avalanche - of the Loch Fyne range. Perfect after a hike!

  • Williams Brothers all the way.  Joker IPA in particular.
  • AliScotAliScot Member
    Harvestion old engine oil or raspy engine- brilliant dark winter ales. Have Haggis Hunter to try too, bought on holiday today in Lewis.

    Williams Brothers all the way.  Joker IPA in particular.
    Or Caesar Augustus, or Birds and the Bees, or Golden Ratio, or my current favourite Perfect Storm. Their repertoire is supreme.
  • SnowmanSnowman Member
    Anything by the Speyside Craft Brewery in Forres, especially Randolph's Leap lager.
    Windswept Brewer of Lossiemouth's Blonde, Tornado and Typhoon ( run by former RAF pilots ). Cromarty Brewery's Happy Chappy, Cowabunga and Rogue Wave. 
    Lots of great little breweries in this part of the world, can't really go too far wrong.

    Innis and Gunn oak aged ipa is v.nice
    Where wit may sparkle all its rays,
    Uncurs’d with caution’s fears;
    That pleasure, basking in the blaze, Rejoice for endless years. (R.B)
