We’re all about putting the spotlight on local food and drinks producers here at Castleton Farm and this month it’s the turn of Stonehaven brewery Reids Gold.
This local micro-brewery is constantly creating new craft beer flavours to hook consumers. Here’s a taste of what to expect from this inventive beer brand.
About Reids Gold
The Reids Gold story all started on Christmas morning in 2013 when a home brewing kit was wrapped up under the tree for soon-to-be founder Barry Reid.
It wasn’t long until Barry started experimenting with different ingredients and combinations to extend the brewing possibilities with his kits. Following rave review from friends, Barry moved his brewing station from his kitchen to his garden shed where he built a bigger 50litre brewing kit to develop more recipes and perfect the process.
When Barry was made redundant from his role within the oil & gas industry in 2017, he decided that it was time to make a start to building his craft beer brand.
Fast forward a year and the brewery expanded to house a 300litre brewhouse equipped with controlled fermenters, bottling, kegging and labelling stations. How’s that for growth?
Now years on, with a back catalogue of flavours, loyal customers and awards under its belt, Reids Gold is far from slowing down.
Reids Gold beer flavours
Whether you’re after a punchy IPA, deep and dark stout or tangy fruit beer, Reids Gold has a range of bold and inventive flavours to pick from.
The brewery is no stranger to beer collaborations with local businesses and events either. From its Stonehaven Fireballs celebrating the town’s fiery Hogmanay celebration to the camp fire with the toasted marshmallow inspired Ghost Bocksters made in collaboration with BrewDog – its collaborations are never short of creativity.
