Dark Island Brewing

At present Dark Island Brewing beer can only be found, in very limited amounts, in my storage space - a wonderful little room which keeps the beer beautifully cool.

Dark Island Brewing currently has the following bottled beers:
  • Bière d'Antoinette
  • Dark Island Navigator Stout
  • Dark Island Black Country Mild
  • IHP 1834 St. Stephen's Porter
  • Dark Island LimeLight
  • Dark Island The Laughing Cavalier 80/-

Dark Island has the following beers in the works:
  • Dark Island Doppelbock
  • Dark Island Teutcher's IPA
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.
