Valhalla Brewery is at Norwick on the island of Unst. That's about as far north as you can get in the Shetlands - two ferries and about 2 hours and a half from Lerwick. Our son is keen on craft beers so we elected to...More

Thank you for your great review, apologies for only replying months later, we are still learning the rope of trip advisor! We now have a distributor on the UK mainland, so if you need to replenish your stock, please look up the Scottish Beershop.
