Guest Beer, Wine & cider

We offer a curated list of rotating guest beer, wine, cider, and non-alcoholic beverage to enjoy in our tasting room or purchase to-go. Our guest offerings include those that shape our trajectory, compliment the beer we make, challenge us, or frankly, just something we are excited to share with you.

Food

We don't have a daily food menu, but offer daily bare snacks from Damoori Kitchen and guests are welcome to bring outside food to Fair Isle. At Fair Isle, we love good food and central to what we do is collaboration. Part of our operations includes a modest commissary kitchen that we make available to host guest chefs for food pairings and pop-up dinners - a modern interpretation of a supper club.
