Conceived in 2014 by Aidan Canavan, a biologist by training, Bute Brew Co. is situated in the centre of Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. Our Brewery is open for visitors so you can come in and see how we make the beers, sample the beers in our bar and beer garden. You can also buy bottles to take home or as a fantastic gift for someone if your feeling generous! Our beer is available on draft or bottle in most of the pubs and restaurants around the island. We are also finding the demand is increasing and our beer is popping up in lots of pubs and off-licences around the country.

This is a cracking little brewery. It's not much bigger than your average garage, but it is a functioning brewery producing some brilliant beers. The guide/barman/chef/waiter was great. He knew all about the brewing process, knew the stories behind the brew names and made some...More

Being a craft brewery it's not a big place. However the tour guide was knowledgeable, the staff were very friendly the beer was good. It also serves food but I didn't try, liquid lunch.

We didn't know that Bute Brew served food until we visited last weekend. I wish we had known about it sooner. It is by far the best food on the island. Delicious platters, using fresh local produce, will keep meat eaters and vegetarians very happy....More
