A new brewery and bar offering quality real ales and craft beers is opening in Stornoway
The Edge O' the World brewery on Shell Street is operated by Andy Ribbens of the
Hebridean Brewing Company.
The venture is the island’s first dedicated real and craft ale bar serving the brewery's
ﬁve regular cask ales on draft plus bottled beers alongside guest ciders and perrys
but no spirits.
The new facility, a converted warehouse and ofﬁce block close to the ferry terminal,
is providing the Hebridean Brewery with new space.
Present brewing capacity is 5,400 litres a week - and it can fill up to 800 bottles
The venture is already looking to expand with an additional 4,000 litre micro brewing
set-up planned for the near future.
New brewery and bar set to open this week
27 February 2017
Andy Ribbens said: "Our aim is to produce everything on this site. My aim is to be
a strong local business, creating jobs locally and brewing and serving the best beers
in the islands."
The new bar is open to all and offers new, locally produced drinks which complements
the growing interest in Hebridean produce.
A children's licence is in place and there are plans to introduce a food service
in the future.
The facility - which opens on Wednesday evening - has not taken a late license and
plans to close at 11pm every night with occasional extensions for special evenings
It is also offering a membership scheme to reward members with discount prices on
