Fyne Ales is located on a working farm in Argyll at the head of Loch Fyne, an area renowned for its excellent natural produce. We are a team who are passionate about brewing outstanding and progressive craft ales.We have a great bar on site, where you can sit and enjoy a tasting flight of a selection of our beers, or a few pints of your favourite. We also serve beef pies made from our own highland beef, which is also available to buy in the shop. Brewery tours can be arranged when the Brewers are available.

I enjoy trying local beers when on holiday and thus lovely little brewery did not disappoint. The beers could be bought at their bar. They sell Highland beef steak and venison sausage rolls. Friendly and knowledgeable.
