Based in Lossiemouth, Windswept Brewing Co is a craft brewery producing an award-winning range of beers, hand-crafted for exceptional taste. Our tap room bar is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our beers.
Windswept Brewing Co was set up by Al Read and Nigel Tiddy – two ex RAF pilots who shared twin passions for outdoor sports in Scotland’s dramatic landscape and great tasting beer.
Their journey took several years, devoting many hours to learning the craft of brewing, visiting breweries and distilleries, trialing recipes, entering competitions and tasting beers.
Eventually, in 2012, they knew they were ready to take on the challenge of setting up the brewery with a focus on creating some of the very finest beer in Scotland with an emphasis on great ingredients and taste.
The name was inspired by the windswept beaches of our location in Lossiemouth on the Moray coast where like-minded adventurers gather to pursue their outdoor passions whatever the weather. Al and Nigel felt strongly that the brand should capture this spirit of rugged adventure found here on the edge of the Scottish Highlands.
After all, a great pint tastes best when you’ve earned it.
