The Inveralmond Brewery Ltd
After the closure of Wrights in the sixties, Perth had a wait of more than 30 years for a beer to call its own, until Inveralmond Brewery opened in 1997. With head brewer Ken Duncan overseeing the process, they combine Perthshire’s clear spring water with hops, yeast and Maris Otter malt (a barley variety developed especially for brewing) to produce six beers, including Lia Fail, Thrappledouser and the CAMRA Award-winning Ossian. Four seasonal brews – such as the festive Santa’s Swallie – further bolster the range. Visitors are welcome on weekdays, with tours and an on-site shop, and every Friday afternoon they run their very own licensed bar, meaning you can try the beers at source.
