The Brewery was established in April 1995 as a partnership between 2 teachers at Portree High School, the secondary school on the island. In December 1995 production began Around Here in purpose-built premises at Uig, the ferry terminal for the Outer Hebrides. At the end of 1996 one of the partners decided to withdraw from the brewery to concentrate on other activities. The remaining founder, Angus MacRuary, took on sole proprietorship until April 1998 when the brewery incorporated. Angus then resigned his teaching post the following year to concentrate full-time on the brewery. Brewing duties are undertaken by Pam Jones (Scotland's only female brewer) and Norrie MacLeod, both of whom are ex-chefs. Our Beers are sent Out and About around Skye, Scotland and the UK. Canada, Finland, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand and Spain have all been helping to expand our overseas markets.
