We're delighted to win this year's Highlands and Islands 'Best Brewed' at this year's Highlands and Islands Food and Drink awards. Celebrating the night with hundreds of other Scottish companies at the Kingsmill hotel in Inverness, we were treated an incredible evening of local food, wine and of course, Black Isle beer!

In early 2017, we brewed 23 Trees, a Citra Saison in memory of the 23 ancient broad-leaf trees needlessly cut down next to our organic farm. Together with this beer, we also planted 200 new trees - to support the wildlife that depend on them for survival.

Lauren Mercer Smail joined us a WOOF'er back in October 2014 to find out about life at the brewery and our organic farm. Whilst with us, she shared her artistic talents and created an incredible mural of wild, Scottish animals that now line the brewery walls.

Coming together with Poppels Bryggeri's brewery from Sweden, we created a big, bold beast of stout, which came to life as Systems Theory. Not content with just one beer, we used it as base for our new barrel aged series: East and West Coast.
