The Ayr Brewing company, based in The Glenpark Hotel Ayr, commenced brewing circa 2009 and is now going from strength to strength. It is run by Paul Rossi, (who runs the Glen Park Hotel), and his brother in law Anthony Valenti. Since the outset in 2009 they have managed to win a number of awards such as "beer of the festival" at the recent Ayrshire real ale festival and a bronze award from the Scottish Real Ale Festival in Edinburgh 2010. Paul said: “I didn’t anticipate it would be so successful so quickly. Anthony was more confident than me. “We’ve both learned a lot and I’ve noticed a big difference in my hotel The Glen Park, where bar trade has gone right up. Anthony added: Things have been going great, it’s really taken us by surprise. We’ve been brewing like mad to meet demand.
The Ayr Brewing Company is the first brewery in Ayr for 80 years and now produces five beers.
