Recently, we’ve decided that it will be a good idea if we gather our experiences of local Scottish brewing companies and share them with you in our blog.
The first brewery in focus is Ayr Brewing Company that we recently visited on our short trip to the town. It’s interesting to say that the brewery is based in an extension to a local hotel and if you didn’t know that beforehand you would probably miss it completely.
Here is how the guys from the brewery describe themselves: “The Ayr Brewing Company ia a 5 Barrel Micro Brewery situated in the heart of Rabbie Burns country. We are currently producing between 20 and 40 casks of Ale a week and supplying pubs in Ayrshire, Glasgow, Edinburgh, South West Scotland and the North of England.” It’s impressive that for the time they have been around (since 2009, as far as we could see) these guys have achieved some great results, including winning a couple of SIBA Silver Medals for some of their brews.
The brewing process at Ayr Brewing Company is described very interestingly from the BeerCast guys, and here is what they had to say about they visit in the brewery.
Here are some of the beers you can get from the restaurant next door or if you order them online:
However, there are some special limited edition ales that you can’t find online and we bought a 1 liter bottle of one of them. (Hint, this special beer is made with watermelon!) Once we test it, we’ll make sure to upload a video review. During our visit to Ayr we also bought another three ales from the company’s portfolio which will also be reviewed shortly. We can’t say if what Ayr Brewing Company does is good or not, but we loved the fact that these guys are making something they really enjoy! More reviews and info soon!
