About Us

Since we opened our doors in 2017 we’ve had one mission, to produce a range of high quality, tasty, award-winning craft beers and supplement them with fantastic visual branding – a mission we have now accomplished. Most recently taking home the national Silver in our category for King Slayer a SIBA Beer X. 

 

We brew using traditional methods in a mash tun followed by a wort kettle/hop strainer. Our beers are truly small batch and handcrafted, we still dig out the mash tun and have to jump into the wort kettle to remove the spent hops! 

Wherever possible we source local/UK ingredients. Our soft water comes from reservoirs in the hills around the brewery. We use whole hops in our wort kettle. We have experimented with Scottish grown hops in the past and would love to use them if they become commercially available.

Our focus is cask beer production which we believe to be the most sustainable (no filtering, pasteurisation and fewest miles). However, we recognise that our customers need bottles as well. All of ours are cold filtered and not pasteurised, unlike some of the larger brewers and foreign imports. We also promote the selling of returnable growlers (one and two-litre glass bottles) through our taproom for local consumption.

When we started out, we went to great lengths to try to create a range of beers to suit all tastes and occasions. Our Great Scots range is all gluten-free. Our bottled beers are vegan-friendly as well, but most importantly, all are very tasty, and we hope you will find them a real treat to savour. Please give them a try and find out for yourself.

We are situated beside Loch Leven, in the town of Kinross, in the heart of Scotland, we are only twenty minutes from the city of Perth and less than one hour from Edinburgh, Stirling & Glasgow, not to mention Fife. In turn, this makes delivering our beers to pubs, shops and venues throughout Scotland and the central belt so much easier. You can now also buy all four of our award-winning Great Scots beers online … Enjoying our Warrior Queen, Outlaw King, Shining Knight and King Slayer has never been easier.
