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.

Nice bar directly located at the small brewery. It offers a huge variety of many different kinds of beers (IPA, Stout, Ales). Go for a selection which you can put together pretty individually.

Went in to buy some beer . Unfortunately couldn't stop as was driving. Dog friendly, great bar with great looking menu. Beer was good (Highlander out of the bottle). Also, nice walk along the river from near by garden centre.

Great beer, great place, friendly staff, good presents to buy folk back home. Tastefully done in fantastic location. It reflects really well on real ale in Scotland & the people who brew it.
