- A lifetime search for the best beer. Only sold in Scotland. Argh
I’m drinking a Spey Valley Stillman’s IPA at the moment, should go rather well with my stir fry later.
Also got a Thrappledouser from Inveralmond as above for later ^
Check out Aldi, they have a very decent real beer/ale section as that’s where the above two came from.Posted 3 years ago

Scotroutes, where is that Spey stuff on draught? I’ve never seen in the wateringholes I frequent down Spey way.
Spey Valley Brewery products are almost always in the Mash Tun in Aberlour and in the Richmond Arms in Tomintoul. Other outlets tend to do it as a short-term guest beer.
Aldi had some bottled stuff on sale recently as part of their “Beer Festival”. I’ve three cases of SVB stuff in my garage at the moment 🙂

I’ll tell you what really is shite and also depressingly ubiquitous: most of the Cairngorm Brewery’s output.
I’m very partial to a Trade Winds, though I’m currently drinking a Caillie that was given me as part of a gift set for sorting out someones bike.Posted 3 years ago

It was because of Trade Winds that I included the ‘most’ in my post although even it is quite variable on draught.
I really shouldn’t complain, I remember the bad old days in Scotland when your choice was lager or heavy.
I’ll keep my eye out for SVB.Posted 3 years agoriddoch wrote:
Innis and Gunn was set up by the people that set up the Caledonian brewery before the sold it to one of the bigger ones.
IIRC, they use beer to season whisky barrels before using them for cask-conditioning stuff like 80/- but they used to pour the “seasoning” brew away. Then someone had the idea of selling it…..Posted 3 years agojimwMember
An teallach ale or beinn dearg from the An Teallach brewery at Dundonnell is well worth trying if you are ever in Wester Ross.Posted 3 years ago
If you like Caledonian 80/- you’ll like the An Teallach ale in particular
The best kept pint of the above was from the Melvaig Inn, well worth a visit (and the food is good too)athgrayMember
gordimhor 🙂 True picture, but I was thinking more of a couple of blocks of dry peat on the wood burner.Posted 3 years ago
Give it a go, it is nice believe me. I prefer bog standard I&G to the whisky or rum one. Another small brewery with quality output is Traquair. Also for a summer drink Atlas Latitude is good.
