Date Published:
07/18/2011

Description / Excerpt:
The deliciously crisp and refreshing Schiehallion, from top independent Scottish brewery, Harviestoun, has been named ‘Best British Lager’ in a tasting arranged by award-winning beer writer Ben McFarland for leading on-trade magazine Imbibe. Comments from a tasting panel comprising bar owners and beer connoisseurs included: “Greater depth of flavours and balanced bitterness was what distinguished this golden lager from its peers”; “Lychee-like, orange zesty hop aroma”; “An addictive bitterness that draws in the side of the cheeks but doesn’t blast your palate.”...

Brewing that’s worth the wait

Publisher:
Morning Advertiser

Date Published:
10/27/2010

Description / Excerpt:
Distance is clearly no object in the brewing industry.
The impressive brewing kit found at Harviestoun, Scotland, started life as a pilot plant in St Austell in deepest Cornwall — but these days it’s producing 10,000 barrels a year in Alva, near Alloa.
Harviestoun is another exhilarating example of the success of cask beer-producers. The brewery began with a five-barrel plant in a barn in Dollar in 1985, but has moved to a custom-built site on an industrial estate. That might conjure up images of ramshackle buildings surrounded by skips, but Alva has attractive, white-washed offices and warehouses, overlooked by the densely-wooded Ochil hills.
The Scottish pub scene is different to England’s; there’s little official tied trade. In the American and French style, big brewers use loans and discounts to dominate beer supply. While there are now dozens of cask brewers in Scotland, many of them look to England to sell the bulk of their products.

Description / Excerpt:
What do you get when you cross a 40-year old Scotch with an ale? (No, the answer is not "A wicked hangover").
-By Craig Bridger, Friday October 1st, 2010 at 12:35 pm


"Our preferred way to accessorize a beer is with a glass of whisk(e)y, neat, sipped slowly. And while it’s no news that brewers have taken to aging their suds in whiskey barrels, Scotland’s Harviestoun Brewery was the first to do it in casks that once contained Highland Park Single Malt, lauded tipple of the Orkney Islands..."

Oak-aged beers Part I Sorting the wood from the trees

Publisher:
Beer-Pages.com

Date Published:
01/01/2009

Description / Excerpt:
"The launch in 2008 of three beers from the Harviestoun Brewery in Alva in Scotland and then Fuller's in London threw the spotlight on ales aged in wooden casks sourced from the malt whisky industry. Such beers are a tiny niche in the beer market but they arouse great interest among beer aficionados. With the exception of Innis & Gunn, production has been confined in Scotland to a handful of small craft brewers. But Harviestoun packs a bigger commercial punch and will gain entry for its beers in outlets beyond the reach of smaller producers."
