    Good Spot to Experience Local Produce at its finest.
    Visited today with my husband and had a lovely tour with the very friendly and knowledgeable Dinah. She definitely knew her stuff and was happy to answer questions and chat about the processes. After an enthusiastic recommendation we’ve come home with a case of the organic pale ale which we’re looking forward to sharing. Good choice of products in the shop.

    Delicious beer, knowledgeable staff- a hidden gem
    Booked via email for the brewery tour; beyond impressed to find on arrival that it was free. Very knowledgeable member of staff showed us round and tastings were offered of four different beers. We bought a few to take home from the well-stocked shop too- all were lovely! This is a small brewery but is a brilliant example of its craft, with effort made to source local and embracing the circular economy. Hope it goes from strength to strength. Also the BEST zero alcohol beer I’ve ever had. Despite visiting with under 18s they were made to feel included and given a free ice pop which is also notable as many similar establishments simply ignore kids.

Dropped in to have a look at the beers, and found that a tour was just about to start - so unloaded the family from the car and we all went round the interesting brewery tour. Our eight-month baby's first brewery tour, which she enjoyed. We'll have to come back as my purchases will all have been consumed in the next 17 years 4 months until she is able to try them. Lots of goodies in the shop, so we loaded up with quality T shirts so as to advertise Black Isle around the country. Nicely designed glasses, and the goblet shape mated with a Spider Monkey gives a wonderful taste experience.

Hi There, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We are so glad to hear that you managed to jump on the tour and had a good time! We cant wait to see you in 17 years and 3 months when the wee one is old enough to enjoy a Spider Monkey herself! All the best, The Black Isle Team

Second visit to the Black Isle brewery to stock up. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Great selection of beers and merchandise.
Picked up a selection box, fresh tasting 10/10.
Dog friendly shop for browsing.

Stopped by as we recently moved to the local area. Really decent quality beer, and at a fraction of the price from big brands (tastes better then them too). Highly recommend stopping by and grabbing a box. The lady in the shop poured us some tasters so don’t be shy asking to try them out! Favourites are the Porter and pale ale.

We stopped by at this great brewery where we were warmly welcomed by staff despite it approaching closing time. Unprompted we were given a quick tour by Lawrie who showed a very unique level of knowledge of breweries. Dog friendly.

We say the sign, were interested so we turned left and rocked up. We were given a free tour of the brewery on the spot. Left with a mixed case of beer. This is an organic and carbon neutral brewery.
