21/03/2017Brian McAteerRecently visited Islay and had a look into nine pubs (well, it was raining). Only one was selling cask beer at the time (March 18th) – Port Charlotte Hotel which had Islay Finlaggan and Inveralmond Ossian. Two others had a handpump and said they would be stocking Islay Ales once the tourist season gets under way. These were the Islay Hotel, Port Ellen and An Tigh Seinsse, Portnahaven. Three others, Port Askaig Hotel, Lochindaal Hotel, Port Charlotte and the Lochview, Bowmore, had bottle-conditioned Islay Ales and one other, the Ardview Inn, Port Ellen will stock bottles in the summer. Didn’t manage to get to the Ballygrant Inn. Calmac have Islay Ales (bottle conditioned) on the ferry. The line seems to be that only tourists will drink Islay Ales. Pretty lamentable state of affairs as far as beer’s concerned; fortunately there are other reasons to go to the island.
