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.

Outstanding location'The location is outstanding - right on the edge of Loch Lomond with private water frontage and beaches. As a location for exploring, again this rates very highly. We easily accessed central Glasgow by train from nearby Balloch and also explored Stirling (particularly the castle and Wallace memorial), the Falkirk Wheel and even Perth and Pitlochry by car. It is a very peaceful place, which can only be disturbed on occasion by your neighbours but with the Slumber Charter in place, we had absolutely no problems overnight.'
Wish we had longer'The ducks were very amusing, each day they waddled around the lodges looking for food, we bought some duck food for them in the local village shop. We just wished we were here for longer and hope to return in the future.'
Right up there with the best'We have travelled the world and stayed in all sorts of accommodation - Loch Lomond Waterfront is right up there with the best. The facilities, quality of fixtures and fittings and the setting all add up to a superb holiday experience and one that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. Outstanding!'
Outstanding service and friendly staff“We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect location. The service was oustanding and the staff were so friendly they felt like part of the wedding."
My stay will never be forgotten'Just wanted to say a very big thank you for my wonderful stay, I have no words to describe the incredible comfort I had at the Cawdor Diamond Lodge, I just checked out today this morning from lodge 5, I do not agree that your lodge is a five star if I could I would call it a 100 star lodge. From start to finish, my stay at the lodge will never be forgotten it's special and unique and an amazing experience'
