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 received notification from Aldi's that they are wanting to have our Saligo Ale in the Summer Beer Festival in their Scottish Stores! In the past few months we have sent beer to Switzerland and France and have an order in the pipe line for 33 cases of each of Single Malt Ale, Dun Hogs Head, Finlaggan Ale and Black Rock Ale. We also have in our store a brew made using grist from Kilchoman Distillery, which will be bottled soon!!
