We've been innundated with requests for a sneak look at the new clothing range from people excited over their forthcoming visit to the island. So with a bit of technical backup we have raided some Facebook albums, ratgher like the popular press, and here is some of the stuff:
Historic Artefact Unovered In East Lothian Shed
The guy who used to run the mainland distribution hub in East Lothian was having a tidy up over the weekend and he came across a case of the very first IPA brewed by the Colonsay brewery. From memory its probably the first beer produced here when we opened at Easter 2007. It is, we imagine, rather l
Shine Comes Off The Atrium
All weekend we've been looking forward to Monday's delivery to the Atrium. Remember the gaff - fantastic restaurant in Edinburgh which, in the mornings, provides neighbouring office workers with the World's Best Bacon Rolls.
First part of the delivery handed over- roll order given - outside for
Sssssshhhhh - Don't Tell A Soul
There was an unusal visitor in the brewery today. He was a lie of the land man for a television production company. They're looking for a Scottish island venue to base a new series of a well known tv programme. They rather fancy Colonsay and he said he reckoned basing it round the brewery may work w
New Outlet Let Down By Brewery Already
The folk from the prestigious Arisaig Restaurant in Glasgow were on holiday here last year and liked the beer and naturally thought it would go down well at their Merchant City establishment. They wanted to sell in on draught - we wanted to supply it on draught. There is no economic way in the world
Chariot For Beer
The headline is meant to be a clever pun on Chariots of Fire - read on.
You have to be on your toes in the brewery business. Some folk were in the shop yesterday and were defying the downturn to kit themselves out in some top brewery clothing and also buy a few bottles of the island's finest to
More On The German Visitors
The German folk came into the shop today and they did indeed have a certificate for us. It was handed over so all is well.
We were a little rushed and did not chat as loing as is neccessary to allow us to tell the story in such a manner as it would answer all the questions thrown up in the mind
Grand Auto Theft
We are vaguely aware of a video game with a title much like the above headline and hope this turns into a clever pun - however being totally unaware of the contents of the game, save for the faux outrage of the popular press - we may be wrong. Never mind.
On Thursday night the residents of our
Don't Beware Of Germans Bearing Gifts
We had a brief visit from a couple of German beer enthusiasts today who said they loved our lager and were searching for the smallest island brewery as they had a certificate to present. What? We're not sure.....more as it develops.
Packet Of Three For The Weekend Sir?
Keen readers of this drivel may recall that after two years of being nagged by Ketih we finally got our act together and ordered up presentation packs to showcase each of our three beers in an attractive gift like package.
They too had their first outing this week and are selling well. Better s
Green Jackets Of Recovery
Remember that government woman Baroness Venereal or something who got a row saying she saw the green shoots of recovery when across the country banks were failing and thousands of people were being thrown onto the dole. Well at the risk of starting a similar kerfuffle we would hazard a guess that th
All Bar None
We did the birthday bar in the hall last night. Keith Bob and David your smiling staff for the evening - Pint of Lager certainly Sir - can I get you anything else. Staff training paying dividends it seems. All went swimming well with the assembled birthday crowd, swollen by locals and hotel staff -
So Far So Good
Some of you may have seen bloated Sir Phillip Green and Kate Moss his supermodel pal opening a Topshop in New York and edeclaring it a great success as security staff had to be on hand to control the Manhattan crowds wanting a piece of the action. A similar seen was to be had here today as the 2009
Island Invasion Levaes Brewery Excited
When we put beer onto LotI last night our friend the purser said there were 195 passengers which he believed to be an all time record. A lot of the people on the boat are friends of four guys who turn 60 this year and have booked half the island to accommodate their friends and relatives. They're ev
Sky Larks - Full Ferry - SUNSHINE - it must be Easter
Sitting here in the brewery as the new 80/- is pumped into the FV looking out over the Firth of Lorne to Jura it is clear spring is here.
There are skylarks in the sky (where else do you expect them? ed)apparently LotI is full tonight and some unbooked cars told they will not get on. Quiz in th
Long Lunch - Big Ideas
The brewery ladies, and others, enjoyed a long lunch in the early spring sunshine round at Bob's - sitting in the garden drinking Champagne cocktails no less.
A long line of burning issues were analysed at length - and some ideas thrown up.
The ladies decided - near the end of lunch we sus
Our friend LotI is back on the island run which means folk coming to the island can have a pint of Colonsay beer to whet their appetite for what lies ahead or those leaving havde one to help get over what is being left behind. The winter boat the Mull has an allegiance to the Isle of Mull Brewery -
Culture Comes to Colonsay
There is nothing unusual on this island - in as much as the normal rarely happens. cSo it is we are sitting here tonight working out the wording for our advert in a theatre programme.
Maybe not the west end but something equally exciting - the island first ever home produced theatre production
