The Knitting Circle
The Knitting Circle is our bottle membership. Our approach to these beers is not necessarily about finding the best barrel or using the most obscure and expensive ingredients. Instead, our intent is primarily twofold: to offer early insight into the direction of Fair Isle and to share small, thoughtful, experimental batches. Every December we open up available spots to new members. Join the waitlist today to be the first to know.
We're proud to share that Season 3 batch c won a Gold Medal at the 2023 World Beer Cup!
Batch C is our yearly blend of oak-aged beers celebrating time, oak, our mix culture of wild and feral yeasts.
Each year we create eight 750ml bottles, releasing two each quarter, and offer our members the ability to make additional purchases. Often these batches include limited and seasonal foraged ingredients that result in a one-off beer expressing that particular time and place. Some batches reveal themselves as a result of handpicking specific barrels or puncheons with you in mind. In some cases, these experiments are so successful and compelling that we can’t wait to take what we’ve learned and apply it to larger-scale production.
Knitting Circle members are granted exclusive access to look behind the curtain to experience how our beers are made through special events, tours, and private openings.
Fair Isle is a small island off the North coast of Scotland. The island is famous for developing a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colors, which is more famous than the island itself. Our membership club, The Knitting Circle, is a play on this name.
