A new brewery and bar offering quality real ales and craft beers is opening in Stornoway this week.

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 daily.

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 and events.

It is also offering a membership scheme to reward members with discount prices on its ales.
