We were delighted to take delivery today of our first bottle of real ale from the brand new Portpatrick Brewery!
From today, our guests will be able to enjoy a bottle of Real Ale which has been brewed near Portpatrick just a couple of miles from Rickwood House.
Initially you can choose from either Dorn Rock – a bitter and Fog Horn – an IPA
Regular visitors to Portpatrick will know that the Dorn Rock is the rocky outcrop in Portpatrick Harbour where the anchor and flag are. These form the logo for the Portpatrick Brewery. The Fog Horn IPA is named after the fog horn at the Mull of Galloway.
Soon to be introduced are Gulf Stream – a Golden Ale which we hope also to stock. Also on the production line as it were is a stout called Dark Skies – named after the Dark Sky Park in Galloway Forest Park.
Rickwood has a licence so you can enjoy a glass of Portpatrick Brewery Ale either in our conservatory, in our dining room or perhaps by the hot tub in our garden or on your comfy bedroom.
The couple behind Portpatrick Brewery, Keith and Lynne-Marie Stebbens who then lived in Cumbria stayed at Rickwood a couple of times a few years ago. They so loved Portpatrick and the Rhins of Galloway that they decided to build a house a few miles from Portpatrick and it is in an outbuiding of their house that the ale is brewed.
Rickwood holds a Taste our Best Award from Visit Scotland which recognises the use of quality scottish food and drink. So it is great to have the opportunity to provide a quality beer from our own village!
