Williams Brothers Brewery - "Williams Brothers" - has a very interesting history of creation. Once Bruce Williams, owner of a small family shop "Glenbrew" in Glasgow, came a lady who brought the recipe translation beer "Leanne Fraoch", which was passed in its Gaelic family from generation to generation. She wanted to recreate the historic production of beverage and learn how to brew beer. Bruce, based on this recipe, began to experiment with different mixtures of malt, the number of heather and the addition of other herbs, created as a result of the final version of "Fraoch" Heather Ale .
With this improved recipe Bruce went to a small brewery in Taynuilt, to produce the first experimental batches of heather ale "Fraoch". Production of a unique historical beer is highly dependent on the season harvesting heather, the demand was so high that the first batch has been completely sold out instantly. It is at this crucial early stage in the history of the brewery to Bruce joined his brother Scott.
After the second beer production "Fraoch", the brothers decided to expand the range of beers and started to develop four other historic Scottish ales, which are produced in a new, purpose-built brewery in Craigmill. It worked for Williams Brothers from 1998 to 2004.
In 2004, the brewery moved to the "Forth Brewery" in Alloa. In addition to traditional ales, it was decided to cook a variety of modern ales, the number of which in the end was more than 25. This led to the fact that today the Williams Brothers is regarded as one of the most eclectic Scottish companies for the production of beer. Assortment Williams earned the recognition of English ale lovers, as well as a large number of medals and awards at competitions CAMRA, SIBA, "Tesco", "Sainsbury's & The World Beer Cup".
