Welcome to Speyside Craft Brewery, where we put all our passion and effort into creating the most flavorful beers for you.
Using our 8 Hectoliter (800L) brewhouse, we carefully hand-craft each and every bottle and pint. We pay close attention to every detail of the brewing process to produce beers that we would love to drink ourselves. From the moment we add premium malt into the hopper, we use the skill of our Brewers to monitor its progress throughout the process. This is particularly crucial in achieving the perfect taste for each beer type. For example, to create a genuine lager, we must maintain a consistent temperature of 13 degrees Celsius during fermentation for at least 2 weeks, followed by an extensive lagering period at 1 degree Celsius. Anything less would not meet the standards for a proper lager.
The brewery began in 2012 when the founder, Seb, decided to turn his passion for brewing into a business. Seb had previously worked in the chemistry industry after obtaining his degree in Aberdeen. However, it was his homemade beer that he brewed for his mum's 50th birthday that sparked the idea of opening a brewery. Encouraged by the positive feedback, Seb took the plunge and founded Speyside Craft Brewery. Since then, the brewery has grown significantly and moved to larger premises with a new team to continue producing high-quality beer.
Naidene brings a wealth of business and marketing experience to the Speyside Craft Brewery team. Her passion for craft beer, combined with her entrepreneurial spirit, has helped to drive our business forward. Naidene is responsible for promoting our brand and ensuring that our beer
