Micro-brewery and Gin Palace
Fancy a tipple? You’ve come to the right place.
We just so happen to have our own onsite Gin Palace and Microbrewery, and you guessed it, they’re one of our Top 10 Things We Love.
Home to over 90 different kinds of gins, it’s hard not to love our Gin Palace. Slap bang in the middle of our hallway, it’s pretty hard to miss. And when we say Gin palace, what we really mean is more of a greenhouse.
But have you been introduced to Freewheelin’ Brewery?
In a separate little building to the right of the main hotel, you’ll find our Richard busily brewing, fermenting and hopping up his ales. And up at our bar you’ll find the finished product.
The one-man brewery operation has been a big hit with us. You’ll see our blonde ale – The Cherub, named after our little statue out the front of the hotel. The Runner Duck IPA is named after our most recent additions to the animal farm down at Peebles Hendro and the ruby ale – The Badger… well, we’re not really sure where that name came from, but one thing’s for sure – they’re delicious.
It’s been a whirlwind of bubbles and froth since Richard came to join us in 2016. He wanted to take advantage of our fresh water supply at Shielgreen to add a real touch of Peebles to the ales, and of course we wanted to take advantage of the tasty brews.
Richard will even give you a little tour around the micro-brewery and show you he turns our water into beer.
