Surprise, surprise after 24 years living in Larbert/Stenhousemuir I discover a few weeks ago that we have a brewery…less than 500m from the house! Tryst Brewery has been on the go since 20004 and produces a number of cask and bottle conditioned ales.
I have to admit that there was a distinct sense of satisfaction as I left the office this Friday evening announcing my intention to head home…via the brewery. The Fatdog’s walk would have to wait.
J and I tried to find it last Saturday to no avail. Lurking behind the local fire station the building I assumed to contain the brewery displayed no advertising signs. In fact there was nothing to indicate what went on in this non-descript single storey industrial unit.
Earlier today a quick phone call cleared up the matter of the lack of “Here We Are!” signs. They were lurking…deliberately lurking.
I spent a most enjoyable 15 minutes being given a quick rundown on the various beers and left clutching a large box for an eagerly anticipated tasting session. The Fatdog’s walk was looking like a distant dream…
I have tasted the Blathan and the Carronade IPA and both were superb. Lots of taste and not oversweet. I’m looking forward to sampling the others and will report my findings at a later date.
