The beers that started it all. Rob's skillful takes on classic, mostly traditional styles with modern twists. Complex, layered beers that can refresh after a day on the waves or in the field (or in the brewhouse) but also be savoured if one is so inclined. All of these beers are massively acclaimed, nationally and internationally.
FLAGSHIP PALE ALE
Three malts and five hops - from Britain, Germany and the US - make Scapa Special a classic pale ale.
HOPPY SESSION BEER
We use all pale malt and lots of New Zealand hops to create this hoppy but still sessionable low strength beer.
There’s six different hops in this beer giving an assertive bitterness.
Crystal malt gives the beer sweet body and US hops provide plenty of punchy, citrus flavours.
Pale and golden in colour, Orkney Blast has fruity, spicy hops and a strong malt body with a finish that builds and builds.
Pale Zesty Refreshing Bitter
A very refreshing, easy drinking Orkney light ale. Hopped with American and Polish hops early and late in the copper. Our old school session beer.
SNEAKY WEE ORKNEY STOUT
DRY HOPPED STOUT
A dry hopped brown stout with a creamy tan head.
This is Rob’s interpretation of the classic, heavily hopped British IPA - he believes the hops may have mellowed by arrival ...
SINGLE HOP MILD
A fantastic dark/rub red single hopped mild with smooth malt flavours and hints of coffee.
