Allanwater Brewhouse

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.

Brewery Tours

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.

Testimonials

  • 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.'
  • A perfect place to relax

    'Stayed at the Waterfront Lodges for a Fri to Mon short break for our daughters birthday last weekend. Lodge was placed right on the edge of Loch Lomond with stunning views.'
  • A magical getaway

    'It is not at all a surprise that you are fully booked.  If there is one place in the world we would like to be this summer, that place is Loch Lomond Waterfront Lodges, and I’m sure the only people who don’t share this passion are those, who simply have never been there. What a magical getaway and a retreat you have created! Thank you for that.'
  • Stunning location

    'Stunning location with superb views of Loch Lomond from the private beach shore we had our drinks reception down here and even had a little paddle in the loch to cool down. Excellent venue facilities. There are a few different areas inside to relax in. Main room, bar and conservatory where we had our evening buffet and fancy dress area. The Wedding package was excellent value for money and you can build your own to suit your individual requirements. We had lots of say in what we wanted and were allowed to change stuff to suit our style. 5* lodges...
  • 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...
