Sunburst

Sunburst is the only authentic Czech pilsner brewed in Scotland. We combine pilsner malts in soft Perthshire waters and ignite this with the enticing aromas of Saaz and Hallertau Hersbruker hops. We then let loose our yeast, sourced from one of the oldest brewing sites in Prague. 

The result? An inimitable blend of Continental class and Scottish substance in an infinitely enjoyable lager.

De Mons

The exclusive beers of the Trappist order are the monastic inspiration of De Mons Belgian Abbey. It might be sinister in name but there is nothing hellish about this concoction.

Fig and raisin flavours conspire sweetly to envelop the palate before leaving a chracteristic Belgian headiness in their wake.

Our HistoryOur History

  • The Gates are drawn open

    By a couple of Clydesdales, the traditional draught horses uses to transport beer in the olden days.

  • Ken joins the brewery

    Also known as the Head Brewer, Ken is easily identified by his bristling mustachios and beard, as well as his characteristic call of 'Don't Panic' and purposeful stride. Known equally for spontaneous bursts of opera singing and ponderous frowns, his natural habitat is the brewery floor, where he dispenses guidance to less experienced employees, leaving occasionally to prey on unattended biscuits in the kitchen.

  • KEN SMUGGLES CZECH YEAST

    And brings it back to us from Prague to make our inspirational Sunburst Pilsner. Supplied by Brevnovsky Pivovar, it’s our claim to being the only authentic Czech Pilsner brewed in Scotland.

  • OSSIAN IS GOLDEN

    Winning ‘Champion Beer of Scotland’ for the first time.

  • RICHARD JOINS THE BREWERY

    Richard: former brewer, present drayman, perpetual beard-sporter. He used to go kayaking to prove his mettle after a long day’s brewing. Now, the only white waters he chases are those at the top of a pint of Inkie Pinkie.

  • MALC JOINS THE BREWERY

    Malc is the tranquil force in Inveralmond Brewery, a qualified chef who brings serenity to the chaos. He’s a Bonsai expert, a keen pinger of pong, and a great fan of motorbike racing. Though he’s a gentle soul, don’t be fooled, Malc can do two finger press-ups: there’s a steely chassis under that mild exterior.

  • JOHN JOINS THE BREWERY

    The brewery’s resident egomaniac, John McDuff is easily identified by his ear-shattering voice, with which he sings The Proclaimers. A lot. Our office manager claims the Queen had the privilege of meeting him three times. It is assumed this is because he chose not to serenade her.

  • BOB JOINS THE BREWERY

    When there’s a bottom line to ponder, pencils to sharpen and ideas to run up the flagpole, you need a man with a plan. First appointed as Inveralmond Brewery’s export manager for hire, Bob now directs all commercial activity. He also enforces brewery coffee standards, and once sat next to Bono on a commercial flight.

  • THE SODS ARE CUT

    We lay the foundations for our new, shiny and gigantic new brewery. Or so we thought at the time. It feels a bit cramped these days.

  • OUR FIRST 30 BARREL BREW

    Which just so happened to be Lia Fail. That’s enough beer for 120 casks, 660 cases or 8000 pints. At the time, this was momentous. Now, it’s not uncommon for us to mash in two brews a day. 

  • THE OLD BREW KIT SAILS OFF INTO THE SUNSET…

    ...and we move into our very own custom-built brewhouse just around the corner. Which doesn’t stop people getting lost and still thinking we’re in the old place.

  • BIG BERTHA GETS BIGGER

    We acquire our 120 barrel fermenter, Bigger Bertha. That’s 1.2 million eggcups of beer. If you like to drink your beer out of eggcups. We recommend one of our Celtic Goblets.

  • WE GET A SHINY NEW KEGGER FROM ITALY

    Our foreign parts come from Bergamot, which is not too far from where San Pellegrino is produced. 

  •  DIGGER JOINS THE BREWERY

    Digger started with us on work experience, but soon charmed his way into becoming a fully-fledged member of production staff, and is now a brewer-in-training. He once cooked dinner for Penelope Keith, and can solve a Rubik’s cube in less than 60 seconds. 

  • WE MAKE BLUE BEER!

    Our local team St Johnstone made it into the Scottish Cup Final for the first time in 130 years,so we crafted a special blue beer to help supporters celebrate.
