River Leven Ales is a small independent brewery founded by Harry Heskey in 2011. The brewery resides in the historic building that was previously home to Atlas Brewery prior to its purchase and subsequent closure by Sinclair Breweries, owner of Orkney Brewery. Harry has brewed both as an amateur and professionally.

The brewery plant was installed by Oban Ales, a microbrewery equipment supplier. The brewery plans to keep the product range small currently brewing three ales. Products will be available primarily in the local area of the Highlands as well as other parts of Scotland. After the closure of Atlas, the community is very pleased to have River Leven Ales brewing quality ales locally.
