Welcome to Islay Ales
Islay Ales is the only brewery on the beautiful Isle of Islay, off the West Coast of Scotland.
Islay Ales produce hand crafted, high quality cask and bottle conditioned beers (also known as real ale) to be enjoyed either in a local pub or hotel bar or, should the mood take you, at home.
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.
We have just taken delivery of the grist from Bowmore Distillery and the process for our special brews for the Festival of Music and Malt at the end of May 2014 start on 11th March with the first brew.
