Vorsprung durch Technik Indeed!!

Recently the Black Isle Brewery received a very special shipment of 4 Rolec tanks from Germany with a 10,000 litre brew capacity per tank, which means we can keep all of you better supplied with our yummy beer ☺ What makes these tanks so special is that they are uni tanks, which can ferment and condition at the same time.

We just love this kind of multi-tasking!

Jocktastic times at Jocktoberfest!

Howdy!! So one of our biggest events of the year has been and gone, and as usual it was a huge success! So much preparation and hard work from everyone here at the Brewery, and all completely worth it in the end, as every one of you who attended were all on great form, and seemed to have a good ol’ humdinger of a time! The theme this year was The Wild West, and you all rose to the occasion with Cowboys, Cowgirls, Native Americans, even some Cacti and Horses made an appearance. The winners for the online competition of Best Costume and Best Selfie will be announced this coming Friday so y’all better get posting your photos on our Facebook and Twitter pages to be in with a chance!

Cheese, Glorious Cheese

We have some new stock in this week…gorgeous fresh organic cheese from Connage Highland Dairy. We had our Beer, Cheese and Tunes event not long ago which was a collaboration between ourselves and Connage. As it was such a success, we decided to get in on the action and we now have some of their cheeses stocked in the brewery shop. To help things along, we have paired our beers with each of the cheeses, so now you can have a lovely organic melt in the mouth combo! Read on and decide what you will be going for…

Connage cheese

If you fancy a Blonde, go for a slice of Cromal – with it’s citrusy notes, grassy aromas and fresh and mild flavours, these are a great match.

Our Red Kite Ale is great teamed with Clava, with a slight sweetness balanced by the creamy brie.

The Gouda, with its Eastern Spice harmonises with the fruitiness of the Goldeneye Pale Ale.

And finally, the Scotch Ale is perfect with the Smoked Dunlop. The bittersweet ale is complimented by the smokiness of the cheese.

Which combo will you go for?
