The Arran Microbrewery (established in January 2000) is located near Brodick Castle and the Arran Aromatics perfumery. It is a small brewery that produces several varieties of beer using pure, natural ingredients and water from the island. A perfect place to buy souvenirs that will stimulate more than just your memories.
The brewery is a small, friendly operation with a guided tour, that should only take about 45 minutes. Visitors can see the equipment and learn about the process from the viewing gallery. This is followed by a Tasting Session and an opportunity to ask questions. Guided Tours take place at 11am & 2pm.
It is recommended to visit on a weekday as this is when most of the brewing and bottling activity happens. There is normally no production at weekends so avoid visiting on saturdays or sundays.
The brewery is not specifically geared up for tourists and we don't expect it will be a highlight of your holiday, but if you're in the area, pop in for a sample.
If you are climbing Goatfell via the main path at Cladach, you will descend past the Brewery so maybe plan a stop here to get some refreshments at their off license and sit out at picnic tables just outside, after your strenuous activities. You will also find the brewery's Ales in most of the local bars and shops.
