Situated in Larbert, Tryst Brewery has been producing quality ales since 2003. John McGarva, owner and head brewer, is always focusing on adding new twists to traditional recipes to create unique takes on classic ales. All of our brews are made with Scottish malt from Mungoswells in East Lothian with additions from Bairds Malt to add depth of colour and flavour. To keep our beers evolving we use hops from all over the globe allowing for a broad range of tastes and aromas.
We are committed to doing our part for the environment at the brewery. Our used malt goes to some local farms for use in agriculture. We also use our spent hops for composting, which helps enrich our small garden, where we attempt to grow some classic British hop varieties such as Fuggle and Target.
Award Winning Quality
Hard work and innovation have led to many of the ales we produce receiving numerous accolades from such prestigious organisations as CAMRA and SIBA. Although we do not create beers with awards in mind, it does make us incredibly proud to have our products recognised by the public and critics alike. Regardless of how much we love a particular recipe, it is down to the drinker to decide its real success. These awards make us strive for consistency and to keep up with our ever-expanding competition. Be sure to check out the ‘Our Beers’ page to see each beers individual awards!
