Welcome to the Orkney Brewery, housed in the former schoolhouse at Quoyloo, one mile from Skara Brae, in the heart of Neolithic Orkney.
The Orkney Brewery invite you to share our craft at our award-winning, family-run visitor centre.
For more information about our tours, tasting hall and opening hours, please visit our website
Formerly a Victorian schoolhouse, there’s no better place to learn about the history of brewing and our particular craft. Kids will love dressing up in Victorian school uniform on the childrens’ tour. Adults will enjoy finding out how our wonderful, hand-crafted beers are made.
The beautiful GIFT SHOP offers some of our products and merchandise, as well as a range of local crafts and produce. And you can sample our creations in the TASTING HALL CAFE, where we also serve a selection of local specialities.
It’s all fully accessible, except for the viewing platform. But picture support means even those with reduced mobility can enjoy the full tour. And guests with specific needs are always welcome – just let us know how we can help.
Our Tasting Hall café used to be a classroom. Today it’s the perfect place to learn about our famous beers, local speciality foods, home baking and history. It’s a chance to relax and revel in the building’s past, surrounded by some of the fascinating artefacts we saved from the old schoolroom.
There are plenty of ways to keep little ones happy, like a big box of toys for tiny toddlers, and a special dressing-up tour of the brewery and schoolhouse for slightly older kids. After putting on their Victorian school uniform, they’re given a puzzle and activity jotter and sent off to collect the stamps from stopping-off points along the tour.
You don't have to visit the brewery to be able to sample our beers, you can order them now by visiting our ONLINE BEER SHOP.
