MòR Brewing

The story goes that a chance remark in a pub prompted Jim Hughan and Ross Niven to start MòR Brewing, a Dundee-based microbrewery making a range of real ales. The brewery now supplies beer to a dozen bars along the coast from Dundee to Arbroath. The name is Gaelic for 'big', although the scale of the operation is still fairly micro. The range consists of a hoppy session bitter called MòR Tea, Vicar?, a malty amber ale (MòR-ish), a stronger session ale (MòR Please) and a fruity premium ale called MòR the Merrier.

The brewery now supplies beer to a dozen bars along the coast from Dundee to Arbroath. The name is Gaelic for 'big', although the scale of the operation is still fairly micro. The range consists of three regular beers – a hoppy session bitter called MòR Tea, Vicar?, a malty amber ale (MòR-ish) and a stronger session ale (MòR Please). In addition they periodically brew a full-bodied stout called MòRTicia and a spicy number they call MòR Calm & Wise.

Micro-breweries thrive in Angus

11 Mar 2015

Two Angus ale-makers are giving a whole new meaning to the term 'homebrew'

'I don't watch a lot of telly, put it that way,' says Colin McIlraith, who spends much of his spare time in his garden shed instead. That might not seem an unusual way to while away an hour or two, but not many sheds can boast their own micro-brewery.

Angus Ales brings micro-brewing to the land of golf

9 Jul 2012

The first small-scale brewery in the area for 50 years won't be the last

When Alan Lawson established Angus Ales in 2009, there had been no brewery in the county of Angus for half a century, he says. The new micro-brewery found plenty of inspiration in the area's championship golf courses.
