Details

Famed for the great but more common Bitter and Twisted and Schiehallion, we believe Harviestoun's best beers are their darker Porters and Stouts. It's either in the pure Scottish water of the Ochi hills or something in the Scottish Malts, either way we love 'em. Their icon and mascot is a "fractious mouse" which appears on each of the labels and was apparently the inspiration for the first brew.

Hailing from bonnie Scotland and having something of tumultuous history, Harviestoun are an institution in Scottish Craft beer. Their IPA is the self-proclaimed forerunner to all other UK breweries in using US hops. It’s a traditional American IPA, light sweetness, pine and resin heavy hop flavours and a smooth bitterness at the end. Take from the Scots, they did everything first!

Brewery Info

Harviestoun are about as Scottish as you can get - based in Clackmannanshire, they’ve been brewing small batch craft beer for over 30 years. They’re extremely innovative, and successful - rather impressively for a UK brewer, they’ve been a well-respected player on the US craft scene since 1999.

One of their most famous brews - Old Engine Oil Ola Dubh - is aged in whisky barrels and they’ve also created a special edition beer - Bitter & Twisted Zymatore - aged in gin and Pinot Noir barrels. For delicious session ales and lovely Scottish heritage, you can’t go wrong with Harviestoun.
