Brewery in Bridge of Allan
The Allanwater Brewhouse is located in Bridge of Allan, around 30 miles from us here at Loch Lomond Waterfront. This working microbrewery was founded in 1996. It has its own bar and two beer gardens, serving a selection of beers, ciders and other drinks. It regularly hosts live music events, beer festivals and pub quizzes. And also offers brewery tours, where you can learn more about the brewing process and sample some of their produce.
Bar and Beer Gardens
The bar has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. This is a great place to come with friends, where you can enjoy a beer, cider or soft drink. There’s a cosy wood burner and interesting beer-related collections on the walls. With plenty of live events and festivals scheduled throughout the year. There are also two outdoor beer gardens.
There are three different levels of brewery tours available: Bronze, Silver and Gold, suiting different levels of interest. During the tour, you’ll discover how Allanwater Brewhouse makes its extensive range of beers and ciders, with the opportunity to sample some of them for yourself. The tours are very relaxed and informal. No two tours are the same, as they are tailored to each group.
Beer and Cider selection
The brewery produces an extensive range of beers and ciders, from traditional to more experimental flavours. View the range.
There are always at least eight beers and two ciders available in the bar. There’s also a shop on site, selling a range of brewery products, including bottled beer to take home, glasses and merchandise.

The best wedding our guests had been to'Everyone has said it was the best wedding they have been too and the venue and staff are very much to take credit for that!'
Undisturbed site exclusivity'We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. The flexibility and service that the staff of the venue provided was amazing and our wedding turned out to be the perfect day we had always hoped for. We had site exclusivity and we certainly weren't disturbed! it was so nice taking over such a large space and knowing the only faces we would see were our guests. We had a drinks reception and marquee down on the beach for 230 people but the next morning we used the function room to put on a breakfast of bacon butties...
We knew it would be perfect'From our very first visit to this venue we knew that it was going to be perfect for our reception! The setting is magical, with enchanting views on even the most dreich of days. The staff are fantastic and so accommodating. We loved that we had so much flexibility over our choices, unlike at other venues! There was plenty of space within the private function rooms, which gave our guests plenty of room to socialise while hiding from the wet west coast weather on our big day! It was great not having to share our day with uninvited guests. The...
Such a beautiful setting'Myself and my partner recently stayed in Drummond Lodge (from 21-24 Feb) and we just wanted to say thank you so much for a lovely stay. We loved our lodge, it was like a home from home, and we really didn’t want to leave! It was spotlessly clean and in such a beautiful setting. All the staff we met were really friendly. We also loved Balmaha, what a wonderful village. So thank you very much! We are the couple that took Flynn for a walk and we took this photo of him... we thought you’d appreciate a copy. Thanks once again...
A fabulous time'We, and all our family and friends, who stayed on site had a fabulous time and could not be more impressed with the lodges and the location! There will definitely be some returning customers.'
