New Beer

I will be producing a new beer for the visit to Plockton of Sir Peter Higgs in April of this year, but have no name for it as yet. If you would like to forward suggestions to me, along with your e-mail address, I will award a Presentation Pack of 3 Plockton beers to whoever chooses the name which ends up on the beer clip.

BREWERY SHUTDOWN

A very quiet December and January is no better.  The Plockton Hotel and Cluanie Inn are both closed, the former for maintenance and the latter to enable repair work to be carried out after the recent storms.  With few people around, the Plockton Inn is down to 1 pump and that will serve English beers until current stock levels are reduced.

Time for a holiday methinks!

BEER AVAILABILITY

Racked “Hitched” today and will do “Plockton Bay” on Friday.  Next week it will be “Starboard!” and “Ciste Dhubh”.

Have entered Brewery details and products in the “Your Round” website which you can access either directly on your browser or via the “Brewers BeerCAM” app.

All go for Easter!

MUSIC

A wonderful time at the Studio Skills Course run by the UHI at Plockton High School last week.  As part of the course, one group had to create a 1 minute, multi-tracked piece of work which they then had to edit and master.  Here is the result!
