A five-barrel micro-brewery producing between 20 and 40 casks a week, they focused mostly on session beers until the May 2012 launch of Dr Hornbrook, a 7.2% blonde imperial stout released in 750ml swingtop bottles as well as cask. Supplying pubs across the south of Scotland and down into the north of England, their full range is made up of six regular ales - Leezie Lundie Pale Ale; Jolly Beggars Best Bitter; Rabbie's Porter; Clachan Yill Ruby Ale; Dr Hornbook and Towzie Tyke, all except Clachan Yill released in bottle as well as cask, and two cask-only seasonals: Scaur O'Doon Summer Ale and Clootie Bree Winter Ale. You might come across their beers in pubs throughout Ayrshire, Glasgow, Edinburgh, South West Scotland and the North of England.
