Swannay Brewery (formerly the Highland Brewing Company) is a family-run brewery producing craft beers in cask, bottle and keg. Established in 2005 and based at Swannay, in Orkney’s west mainland, the brewery’s award-winning range includes Scapa Special, Dark Munro, Orkney IPA and Orkney Blast. The mix of styles within the Highland Brewing Company stable – from traditional ales to innovative modern brews – reflects the different approaches of father and son brewing team, Rob and Lewis Hill. Their combination of complementary and opposing styles has won the brewery a string of top industry prizes (several Highland Brewing Co beers are national champions) and a loyal following among beer enthusiasts worldwide.
