"Why are you called Glen Affric Brewery?"

"Why are you called Glen Affric Brewery?"

It's a valid question & one we get asked a lot.

We initially planned on opening our brewery in a bar we bought in Glen Affric, in the Scottish Highlands where our family holiday home is located.

Unfortunately it didn't work out as we'd hoped...

The Orange Hoff: Dead Crafty Beer Collab

We were privileged to be asked by the infamous Liverpool craft bar, Dead Craft Beer Co, to participate & collaborate with them on a beer exclusively for their Oktoberfest 2017 celebrations.

Not gonna lie, we were pretty excited! The only requirement for the beer was that it had to be german inspired or themed in some way...

So after a bit of back and forth trying to find something that we could brew in time for the event, and be unique, we came up with this:

Dumping beer: money down the drain?

Dumping beer: money down the drain?

We live and die by our beer. I know that's not a new sentiment, particularly in the craft beer world. But it is even more poignant for a new, young brewery like ourselves. 

An early batch of beer that isn't quite up to snuff can ruin your reputation in the local market. More often than not, those early supporters will likely become ambassadors for your brand. Proud to wear their local brewery as a badge of honour. But only if your beer is good.

If not? well...
