That is the dream, right? Well they are living the dream in the land of my forefathers on the island of Colonsay off western Scotland according to this report from last month in the BBC:
The brewery was officially opened by islander Dougie McGilvray, 98, at a ceremony attended by about half of Colonsay's 120 population. Mr Johnston, now the brewery's managing director, said: "We know that the monks who lived here in the 14th and 15th Centuries would have produced ales of their own. Recreating these ales is something we would like to do further down the line."Neato. And look - they have a blog to keep us all informed with their efforts. I say we adopt them. Go read the blog and buy the t-shirts even if you can't get the beer. The other west coast brewing revolution.
