The Brewery and Visitors Centre are open for tours and tastings Monday to Saturday from 10.30am until 5.00pm during the summer and from 10.30am until 4.00pm during the winter. If you are coming a long way to visit us it is always worth phoning ahead to check that we will be able to do a tour for you.
Kilchoman Dark, (a dark peaty beer full of smoke!) is now available on the Web Site both by the case and as part of a mixed case!!
We have just sent the latest batch of Angus Og off to Aldi's for this year's Winter Beer Festival in their Scottish Stores! We have been very busy recently getting orders together for shipment to Switzerland, France and Germany. There was also an order in from our old customer in Japan!! Our recent release of our 2 new additions to our range made partly using grist from Kilchoman Distillery, a dark version and a pale version, have been going so well that we have brewed more of them at the expense of some of the others!!
