The Lady Who Knows Is Coming
Since our brewery idea was first floated we have worked closely with AIE who have been a great support to our fledgling business.
The lady we liase with is coming across soon to see various folk round the island and us - wait till she sees our shopping list!
Go Away For Weekend And Come Back With A Shopping List
We suppose it was inevitable. Chris and Sheena go off to Skye "to se how its done properly" and come back with a shopping list as long as your arm.

We've got our own wee tourist board on Colonsay - set up to try and make sure visitors get the best out of the island and enjoy themselves so much they come back.

Disaster Over as Jim Fixes It
You can rely on Colonsay to throw up solutions to the problems faced by its inhabitants.

How Much Do You Love Our Beer
Further to the German chap who enquired about sending IPA to Germany -- Just got a quote from Keith the post - £50 to Germany plus the cost of the beer which works out at £6.91 a pint. You'd have to like it a lot for that. Mind you I'd check the figures with our numeracy record.

Facebook Friends Outnumber Island Friends 5 to 1
We are close to having 500 Facebook friends - That's almost five times the population of the island. Lets try and get 1000, then delete the page and go back to a quiet life.
