Surrounding Stone Brewery ︎


A concept for a brewery located within the Scottish Highlands famous Fairy Glens. Nestled where it is believed fairies dwell since the origin of the pagan faith. Design inspired by the landscape and by the plants and weeds that dwell in the Isle of Skye.

Surrounding Stone Brewery values the importance of preserving the beauty of the Scottish Highlands

Brand Values
- To preserve the folklore of Skye
- To inspire others to explore the great landscape of the Highlands - To support environmental sustainability by incorporating ingredients from the Fairy Glen and the surrounding area
Brand Promise
Our water source comes from the Fairy Pools on Skye where the fairies bathe. It is believed if you bathe in these pools that you will have eternal beauty. Our hope is that by using this water we can still be enthralled with these qualities.
Philanthropic Value
We believe in preservation and want to give part of our profits to the Highland council area nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools who continue to educate students how to read and write in Gaelic.

Behind the Flavours (Created in the UK, so the spelling sticks)
For this concept I named the flavours of the beer after plants and flowers that grow in the Isle of Skye to help tie in the whimsical connection to the flavors with the location.
