I always thought we served wonderful beer at the Creel – beer from the Swannay Brewery up near Evie. My son and I both love it (and the drive up to the brewery to pick up supplies, as there are some lovely views and sights on the way).
And now our choice has been vindicated. One of their beers, Island Hopping, a bottle of which I downed happily yesterday, has been named the best beer in Scotland at the SIBA Independent Beer Awards in Glasgow last week.
See Swannay Brewery's website for more information. Guests can try most of the range at the Creel. I also love their Scapa Special – for the taste and also for its great advertising line: "Goes down better than the German Fleet".
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
