Dark Island Brewing

At present Dark Island Brewing beer can only be found, in very limited amounts, in my kegerator, occasionally in growlers at friends' parties, and from time to time at work events.

Dark Island Brewing currently has the following packaged beers:
  • Extra Special Bitter
Dark Island has the following beers in the works:
  • Dry Irish Stout
Dark Island Brewing is named for the island I grew up on, Benbecula, in the Outer Hebrides, and also the hotel on the island where I had my first, legal, pint.

In Gaelic poetry the island is known as "An t-Eilean Dorcha" - The Dark Island.
