Welcome to Lerwick Brewery - the home of truly great lagers and beers.
With the first beers launched in June 2013, the Lerwick Brewery offers an exciting new dimension to Shetland’s larder. This family run business aim to produce products which exemplify everything that is great about our beautiful islands. The brewery is tucked into the heathery hillside on the edge of Lerwick and comprises of the very latest 12 barrel plant, in-house bottling and labelling machines.
Sitting on the latitude line of 60° North, the Lerwick Brewery has a unique location which provides a consistent climate where winters are mild and summers cool. The regular humidity together with plentiful clear water and crisp fresh air provides the vital ingredients to brew beer with individual character and a unique dimension.
Our unique situation means that our flagship Lager – the aptly named 60˚ North is brewed in combination with our soft Shetland water and cool atmosphere which work together produce a truly great tasting and refreshing lager. Similar to the pilners style lagers seen throughout europe we can promise a truly different taste of Shetland with our 60° North Lager.
The second beer in the Lerwick Brewery range, Skippers Ticket, takes its name from the qualification give to those who achieve the high standard of skills required to become a skipper of a vessel. Our pale ale is named not only to recognise Shetland’s close association with the sea and seafaring life but also to recognise the pride the community takes in those that achieve this honour.
