It is hard to believe that it is June already! We have now been selling our beer for 6 months and it has been a lot of fun and hard work so far.

As the season kicked in, around Easter time, our sales figures jumped and we have been getting new customers every week; some...

As we roll into March it has been a busy time at the brewery. We spent much of February catching up the stock so that we don't run short and now we are preparing to brew our newest offering, "Twa Dugs": This will be a session IPA and come in at 4%. The aim is for it to...

As we have hit 2019 we have now reached 6 weeks of selling our first Lockerbie cask ales; Dryfe Blonde and Dryfe Ale.

What a few months it has been to kick off 2018.

In January I travelled up to the Cuillin Brewery on Skye to spend a week brewing up there. It was a fantastic opportunity to gain some much needed experience and to see the set-up they had. 

We have taken on Lockerbie local...

I can't believe it's November already. Time is flying by now. As we get closer to the New Year everything is starting to fall into place. We have had the asbestos removed from the building and have had a whole host of quotes for completing the building work.

It has been a very busy month for the brewery. My first week at the start of the month involved a meeting with a local structural engineer, Paul Burley, who cast his eye over the property in Well street, making comments on how he liked the space and explaining what was...
