WHEN WILL YOU BE OPEN?
We are asked this on a daily basis. Our aim is to have a tap room in the brewery to serve direct to our customers at times when we are not brewing, cleaning, bottling, delivering and paper working. We are in the process of applying for licenses which can be a lengthy procedure. We are also hoping to do brewery tours to have a chance to talk "beer", and anything else really, with locals and visitors to Knoydart.
WHERE CAN I BUY YOUR BEER?
Knoydart Village Hall at licensed events. Our beer is available from the Knoydart Foundation shop and also at River Cottage in Knoydart Western Isles Cruises and The Tea Garden in Mallaig, The Look Out Restaurant, Knoydart and Doune, Knoydart. We now have a license to sell our beer at the door of the brewery.
WHAT KIND OF BEERS DO YOU BREW?
Our launch beer is a session strength pale ale, akin to a best bitter. It is lightly hopped with well-balanced maltiness and fruit flavour. In contrast our second beer is a blonde ale brewed in the SMaSH style (Single Malt and Single Hop) and we plan to produce some one-off seasonal specials. We have added an IPA, lager, a pale ale and a porter to our range. We occasionally brew a NEIPA (New England IPA). All our beers are unfined and unfiltered which means they are vegan friendly.
WHERE IS YOUR BREWERY LOCATED?
Knoydart is a remote peninsula on the mainland in the highlands of Scotland. There are no road links so access is by ferry boat from nearby Mallaig or on foot over mountain passes. This adds to the challenge of running a brewery, or any business, as everything arrives by boat, in all weathers.
