Arran Brewery, which produces a range of ales, is to convert the site of the old Bower Bar in Kilbirnie to new gastropub the Weavers.

Gerald Michaluk, managing director of Arran Brewery, said: “It is good to have the support of the community council in this venture – refurbishment will start soon and we hope to have the beer flowing quite quickly.”

Michaluk said the Weavers’ menu would showcase the best of the region’s produce.

Additional plans for the pub include installing a nano-brewery, which will be used to brew speciality beers for sale on site.

This is Arran Brewery’s second pub venture, having opened its first site as part of its hotel, brewery and visitor centre on Loch Earn.

Looking south

The brewery also announced the acquisition of Cambridgeshire brewery Devil's Dyke with an eye to building a presence in London and south of the border.
