Our visit, on a short trip to Castle Douglas, was memorable from the onset. Found down a small alley, we received a lovely welcome from a regular who was outside on his phone. Once inside, everyone greeted us warmly and although their accents were sometimes a little too broad to understand, they made you feel at ease. The ale was second to none and Charmaine, who was manning the bar, was particularly helpful when we chose our souvenir beers for home. It is only a small brewery but the real ales are a class act, brewed with 100% natural ingredients. This was a really friendly place with a welcoming atmosphere and we'd highly recommend it to those visiting the area.

Hidden gem! Wonderful place with lovely people. Locals friendly and chatty and Charmaine very attentive, warm and welcoming. Love that you can have a small try of the beers to see if you like them before committing to a full drink due to my fussiness. Charmaine brought our dog a bowl of water immediately and made a fuss of him. This is our second visit and will be back.

We stumbled across the Sulwath Brewery/pub on a sunny afternoon in Castle Douglas. There is a pleasant courtyard but we opted to sit inside where you can enjoy their lovely beers in real glass as opposed to the plastic ones you use if you’re sitting outside. We were given a real friendly welcome and were offered free tastings of the various beers. We made our choices and enjoyed a number of different beers. My husband also enjoyed his hot Scotch pie, not only were the beers all very good, but were reasonably priced. There’s a good selection of their beers to purchase too.

We had a chat with very friendly locals and the bar staff are excellent and we look forward to a return visit.

We visited this place while on a recent golfing trip in Castle Douglas. There are sensible COVID precautions in place which are necessary at this time. The beers were all top drawer. Staff friendly and there are options of either sitting indoors or in the courtyard area. If you like good drinks served in a pleasant non pretentious environment give this place a visit.

Thank you for your kind review, & I hope the golf was good. I have a feeling the weather wasn't always the best for a game. Please stop by any time you are in the area to see us again & enjoy some more of our beers, but if you would like some before, then just visit our webshop. Thank you once again & we look forward to hopefuly seeing again soon. Kind regards, Allen Henderson Managing Director Sulwath Brewers Ltd

Stumbled across this wee hidden gem while dodging showers in Castle Douglas. The seemed to be taken the re-opening conditions seriously, so I had my first post-lockdown pint of draft beer, and excellent porter called Black Galloway. I also had my second pint here, two days later. Will definately re-visit if in the area.

Spent a splendid afternoon with my family tasting the excellent selection of in house beers. Felt at home amongst the regulars and the unique decor made for a special visit. Went at the same time last year and felt the same then.

A great visit to the brewery with some friends on holiday in Kippford. We bought some fish and chips from Moore’s and ate them whilst enjoying some fantastic ales brewed and packaged in this fantastic brewery. A huge thanks to Charmaine who looked after us and let us peek in the brewery. We left with many gift bags of beers to enjoy. Loved it and fully recommended for some great beers. Tucked away on the main High Street so keep a look out.

The Brewery Tap at Sulwath Brewery extends a warm welcome to one and all. First visit on Friday 3rd July we were greeted by the owner Jim and left feeling we had been regulars for years.You are but a stranger once.

This was a slightly different tour to what I've been on before. 1.5 hrs long and very very relaxed. The tour costs £3.50 but you get a pint (half as you arrive and half St the end) worth £3 so it's value for money. The gentleman running the tour own the business and you get a full history of how he came about. He certainly knows his stuff and has lots to show you and let you taste and smell.
The overall Impression I was left with tho though was that it needed a bloomin good clean and updating. The pictures he shows seem to be from the 80s and never been updated since and the whole place feels like it's in the 80s.
I was conscious of how old and dirty some part of the site were and how mouldy the toilet walls were. I assume this is due to the age of the building being an old dairy farm but it did make me a little unsettled. Possibly I'm over fussy and OCD about these things.
I would say this is very much value for money, we did bring bottled beers home so it didn't put us off buying to take home. I just felt a small investment in making the place cleaner and a little more modern would have gone long way.
