  • Best Scottish beers?

    There seem to be loads to be had in the supermarkets at the moment with some good offers on too - the likes of Innis and Gunn are superb and some of the Harvieston ales. Tried the Stewarts 'Doppelbock' in a pub recently and it was amazing. As good as the German Bock I've tried.

    no air Betlehem an igh
    ach air cil ghrod an Glaschu
    far bheil an lobhadh fis,
    agus air semar an Dn ideann,
    semar bochdainn s cridh,
    far a bheil an naoidhean creuchdach
    ri aonagraich gu bhs.

    I'm not a beer drinker (women of my generation, generally aren't).. but my husband is an afficionado of the Caley Breweries beers.

      Caley's McEwans Champion is a good one. Not tried their others though.

          I tried McEwans Champion a while back and it was pretty strong. One of my favourites at the moment is Belhaven St Andrews Ale.

            I think so. Their Jacobite Ale is superb.

              Devon ales

              So far have tasted no better than the "devon ales" - local produce of Clackmannashire. The Micro-brewery is located (hidden?) at the Mansefield Arms inn (Sauchie village). The fact they're little known, is a real plus to me!!

                Oh, I am glad to know of a good brewery existing in Alloa. I thought all had gone and died. I am glad it isn't so.

                  Yes, still alive!

                  Yes, it is true... have a look at: Devon Ales - The Mansefield Arms & Devon Ales Microbrewery

                  before I was forced to leave Scotland (to be back to Italy) my usual supplier was the Muckhart Inn... still missing those guys teasing the lonely italian boy always willing to share emotions !!

                    Ooh, I liked the Muckart inn. Yeah! Nice dinner there and nice beer. And lovely friendly staff. My brother lives in Alloa - perhaps I should invite myself there for a visit soon.

                      Now that sounds as though there are some good stories there.

                          I am indeed a lover of certain beers here in the states, and have tried some when I was in England, but never did I try Scottish lager or beer. I live in northern California...might you suggest any of the Scot's stuff, that is sold in the states?
