Islay Ales is the only brewery on Islay and something like 90% of the beer stays on the island. If you drop an email the guy will happily give you a quick brewery tour in the rather compact space! They also have a small brewery shop which had 10 of their beers for tasting and sale (which is pretty impressive given the size of the brewery). Ok for a quick stop-off between distillery tours!

Islay Ales can be found within what I would describe as a community business park next to Islay House in Bridgend. They have around 8 to 10 of their beers available at the shop and usually a couple that have been opened to taste. The lady was very pleasant in explaining the beers in their range and in giving samples.

Visited June 2012. Brewery is very small (4 barrel) and run by two men. both are very friendly and willing to show visitors around and talk about their beer. They will let you try anything you like and any supply they have on hand can be purchased for approx. 4pounds per bottle:
