About Isle of Arran Brewery

Brewing award winning Scottish Beers for over 20 years.

Situated just off the West coast of Scotland the Isle of Arran is arguably one of the most beautiful and dramatic islands in Europe. The splendour and diversity of the landscape has led it to be considered by many as Scotland in miniature. Nestled between the islands largest mountain, Goatfell, and the imposing Brodick Castle lies Arran Brewery which has been brewing award winning craft beer for over two decades.

Combining the art of traditional brewing methods with the island’s unique water and only the finest natural ingredients the brewery produces a wide range of beers and ales to suit every palette.

In August 2020 Arran Brewery came under the reigns of new Head Brewer, Craig Laurie, who has brought new ideas to the brewery along with a desire to push the brewery to greater heights of quality and improved standards.
