Loch Fyne collarboration


Loch Fyne Oysters and Fyne Ales have teamed up to create ‘This Gose’, a 3.5% ABV craft beer designed to pair perfectly with Scottish smoked salmon. Loch Fyne Oysters’ teamed up Fyne Ales’ head brewer Malcolm Downie to create this craft brew working together to test recipes and adjuncts which helped enhance the flavour of fresh Scottish smoked salmon.
Martyn Paterson, Divisional Director & Deputy MD at Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd comment, “Many of our customers and visitors to the Restaurant and Oyster Bar are discerning beer drinkers, and we wanted to offer a a high quality beer to pair with our famous smoked salmon. “Fortunately, we have a world-renowned craft brewery on our doorstep and our produce is connected through our unique location.  Loch Fyne Oysters’ harvest is drawn from the pure waters of the loch. At Fyne Ales, yesterday’s rain is tomorrow’s beer, so working with Fyne Ales is the perfect partnership.”
Welcoming the collaboration, Jamie Delap, Managing Director, Fyne Ales said, “This beer draws its inspiration from a traditional German farmhouse-style wheat beer, Gose. This is a sour beer, and true to style, this top—fermented beer has been brewed with salt and coriander. We’ve added some fragrant lemongrass too, resulting in a unique beer with light salinity and a zesty finish.”
