Wow. It has been six months since my last review. I almost feel guilty.
But not guilty enough to keep from telling you all how awesome Traquair House is as a brewery. According to the website,
The brewery currently produces around 600 - 700 barrels per annum. (200,000 bottles and the remainder draught) Brewing takes place all year round with the exception of August. The brewery expanded its premises in 1993 but continues to ferment its total production in the original oak vessels. At present there is room to increase production by a further 20% but there are no plans to expand beyond this as it is intended to retain brewing in the original style and premises.
