Newbarns is a brand-new brewery, but the team behind it certainly know what they’re doing. Gordon McKenzie, his partner Emma McIntosh, Jonny Hamilton and Fred Bjerkseth have an impressive array of experience between them from the likes of The Kernel, Siren and Beavertown breweries (Hamilton is also the co-founder of the excellent beer magazine Pellicle). Having met on the London brewing scene, it’s a return home to Scotland for three quarters of the team, and a chance to follow their own ambitious vision.

Newbarns are one of the most exciting new brewers to emerge on the Scottish beer scene. Taking on the classic German lager style, this pils is brewed with Golden Promise malt, then hopped with Callista hops. A crisp, elegant and refreshing lager with complexity and character.
