Like gin, Laings has a long history. Since 1862, we have been a part of the North East and are now Scotland's largest, independent luxury kitchen, bathroom and bedroom retailer.

We are a small family firm that makes handmade pizza from local artisan ingredients laid out before the public who choose what they wish to go onto their individual pizza. The pizzas are then baked in a wood-fired (old oak whisky barrels saved from landfill) clay oven. At each festival I source fresh ingredients (organic preferably) from local suppliers. As the public choose their ingredients I cater for carnivore, herbivore, vegan (no cheese or for a small extra charge soya cheese) and celiac (I make up some gluten free bases.)

Night Shift – Black IPA – 6.5% Abv
24/7 – Session IPA – 4.7% ABV
Cranachan Killer – Raspberry Fruit Beer –
5.5% ABV An oatmeal pale that has been “smashed” full of local raspberries and honey, enough of them “to feed a clan of Highlanders”. No seriously its full of them and it tastes amazing. Fierce Beer have literally taken the beer making rule book and told it to f@*k off…
Baby Faced Assassin – IPA – 6.1% ABV
Day Shift – Pale Ale – 5.0% ABV
Yankee – Pale ale – 4.3% ABV
When the Day Shift is done, the Night Shift takes over. Let your inhibitions go with this deep Black IPA. Velvety and smooth with a biting hoppiness that guarantees instant pleasure and a thirst for more.
A light and easy drinking pale ale that’s got a heap of hops in it. Citrus and pine with a great hoppy bitterness.
marillo, Chinook and Simcoe from the USA work in harmony with New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin to produce a punchbowl aroma of lemon, tangerine and gooseberry, followed by a balanced grapefruit bitterness.
Brewed with 100% Citra hops that create aromas of mango, apricot, grapefruit & mandarin orange, along with a lasting, juicy, tropical fruit bitterness, the Baby-Faced Assassin is a deceptively drinkable India Pale Ale that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Be careful or it might sneak up on you!
Light and easy-drinking, it’s a beer that showcases the floral and citrus fruit aromas of the Cascade hop, grown in the Yakima Valley in Washington State, USA, projected against a back drop of soft Yorkshire water and golden promise pale malt.
Six Degrees North Laurencekirk
Hopocrisy – Belgium – 4.6% ABV
Big Bang Theory – APA – 5.3% ABV

Weizen – Wheat – 5.2% ABV
German style wheat beer using authentic German yeast helping to provide the great lemony, clove and banana flavours wanted from a wheat beer

Nene Valley Brewery
Wonderfully balanced pale ale with a huge hop aroma giving way to malty sweetness and a gentle bitter finish
Lots of citrus fruit and light floral malty notes on the nose which move to tropical fruits and pineapple on the palate.
Supersonic – Wheat Beer - 6.5% ABV
This is a must try. My two favourite things combining here, Gin and Beer. A German style wheat beer that’s brewed using Gin botanicals. Aromas of juniper, lemons and kaffir limes lead to a full smooth body with more juniper and citrus notes. An open mind is required, not a stereotypical wheat beer by any means.
APPLES APPLES APPLES
Jaggy Thistly – 7.4% ABV
Naturally fermented over the colder months of the year and letting wild yeast work its magic providing a proper scrumpy flavour! Its unfiltered, unpasteurised and conditioned in ex-spirit casks. A proper scrumpy but from Scotland!

festival ale RAINORSHINE Sesion IPA - 4.5% This year we have teamed up with the awesome bunch of multi award winning legends at Fierce Beer to bring you a pint of summer in a cup…. And guess what…? They have not disappointed. Dave and his magical team at Fierce have brewed up a killer here! A session pale that’s packing serious flavour and can be enjoyed all day.

The team at Fierce Beer work tirelessly to endeavour to bring you the highest quality of beer possibly and if you ask us, they hit the ball out of the park every time! FortyTwo Studio – AWESOME! These guys stepped in to bring our branding and image up to speed and have done an amazing job! Massive thanks to them on everything that they have done, the late nights and long hours they have put in have paid off. We could not recommend Mark, Sam and the team any more highly - they are simply fantastic!
Strawberry – 4% ABV
Made with fresh Scottish Strawberries which are then had pressed in Thistly crosses apple presses. Strawberries totally dominate the aroma with a little zing of apples with balance out the sweetness.
SLYRS Whisky cask – 6.9% ABV
Having spent the last 6 months gentle maturing in SLYRS Bavarian whisky casks this is something a little special! Delightfully malty on the palate, providing some lovely dark spiced fruit notes while still having that refreshingly crisp apple crunch.
Traditional – 4.4% – ABV
A bright golden session cider is rich in aroma of ripe apples with a lovely soft palate which is refreshingly fruity. A real thirst quencher!
BUBBLES BUBBLES BUBBL

CasaGheller Rose Spumante – Dry – 11% ABV

Banchory Scotland’s First rum distillery, which is produced no more than half a mile from the festival site. Its spiced rum like you’ve tried before. Full of nutmeg, ginger and five spice it’s got the perfect sweetness to match the spice. Best with lemonade or ginger beer!
