This is our third visit and we were not disappointed. It is interesting to see how it is slowly expanding without losing the original feel of the place. Great presentation. This time with Malci. Tasting with clear explanation of each beer. Great humour. Would thoroughly recommend a visit but would suggest you walk or have a designated driver or taxi... More

We had a nice time on the tour, getting to try 12 different beers and it wasn't short on quantity either. The brewery tour was pretty straight forward but good to see thing in action and the stories from our tour guide Bruce were extremely entertaining. We called Saturday morning and we're lucky enough to get on an afternoon tour.... More

The tour was short and sweet - just enough information without being too technical. It takes place in two rooms so very convenient if someone in your group has mobility issues. The highlight of the tour is the tasting session after the brief description of how the beer is brewed. I was really impressed at how generous the tastings were... More

Great place to stop off if your in Aviemore for a visit, well worth the entry fee. Our tour guide Malchie was superb as were the other staff. He told us he had only been in the job 3 weeks, but managed perfectly to keep us all entertained along with his knowledge of the brewery. Most importantly he was more... More

For the entry fee, patrons get to enjoy a sample of each of the beers that the brewery produces. Samples are generous and the tour itself was enjoyable too! Leave a good hour for the tasting experience, and make sure you are prepared to leave with one - or a few - of your favourite brews!

Fun tour today hosted by Malcolm who was charming and witty. Informative and interesting insight to how this beer is made. Really enjoyed the tasting session and the opportunity to purchase some of this great beer.
