Chris was over at the weekend and filled up the regional distribution hub hidden away in the Lothian countryside. Mainland sales are up and running. First call of the day was at our friends in North Berwick
who promptly ordered many cases of beer and just one of lager. Better still the
Following on from the failed Birmingham sales operation (see below) we have a success to report. Some guy with a specialist beer shop in London has ordered and paid for six cases of Colonsay ales because he wants to feature an unusual ale for a couple of weeks. Also going is beer from our friends at
Would you Adam and Eve it. There is now beer to be had in the brewery. The lager was bottled yesterday and the IPA is being bottled tomorrow which means there is now a full stock of beer for when we next open the shop - tomorrow afternoon.
This plan is near perfect save for one thing. Its going
You\\\'ll Never Walk Alone
We bumped into the nice lady from the Black Isle Brewery and shared with her the heartache of our lager disaster.
Don't worry she said, it doesn't happen all the time but it does happen to the best of us. You are dealing with a living thing and it does go wrong every no
A guy phoned up today from the Birmingham German market asking us if we would be sole beer supplier to this years event.
He said he was looking for something completely different with a good marketing angle.
He also said he was anticipating selling up to 2000 pints of draught a day.
Checks tonight on the latest Lager and IPA to be brewed reveal - wait for it ------ that all seems well again. They are bubbling away and the sg seems to be falling nicely.
This, we can only presume, is because it rained for several days before the brew no doubt topping up the zinc.
Wanted - Spittoon - - - One Carefull Owner

Feast or Famine
No not more lack of beer nonsense. This a true irony.
Here on Colonsay and our wee neighbour Oransay considerable effort is put into protecting the rare old bird the Corncrake, or the Crex Crex as I think it may be known.
Our East Africa sales team discovered that over there they are not s
The below of course means that for the second month running we will not be at the Glasgow farmers market. We are Committed to these markets and they work for us but we need a decdent level of stock to take to make it worthwhile once the ferry and stall charges are taken into consideration.
Crisis at the Brewery
It had to happen. We are very nearly the brewery with no beer. Sales have, you will have gathered by now, greatly exceeded all expectations and the result is that by the end of August we had just a smattering of bottles of the three beer styles left in stock.
The mini kegs have sold well, hotel
Blogging is Back - But Only Just
Blogging has been interupted by a sales trip to East Afria - It seemed natural, if you are making beer on a remote island with all the challenges that brings, then we ought to find markets which will be just as difficult to serve.
Unfortunately at our first sales call of the trip the prop
Getting There Again
Well at least we have decent stocks of 80/- now. The latest brew bottled today and ready for action. Until this happy moment brewery stocks were something like a total of 56 bottles of assorted beers. The IPA brewed on Tuesday is coming along nicely and even though the island is still busy we hope t
