Our state of the art, innovative brewery sits amongst the Devon countryside looking towards the Salcombe Ria. The brewhouse is a unique concept built on the site of a decommissioned water reservoir. This utilises the natural ambient temperature of the underground facility for storing our ales at perfect conditioning temperature. Along with the upcoming installation of solar cells this helps make our brewery as energy efficient as possible. The site also has its own borehole which is capable of supplying the brewery with its own source of pure Devonian waters perfect for ale brewing.
The brewhouse is a 20-barrel brewery with 8 fermenting vessels, producing 340 casks and 120 kegs per week. We’re really proud of our local surroundings and welcome visitors for tours or brew days for those interested in learning and sampling our ales. The Brewery Shop is currently open between 1 and 4pm on Fridays only, selling beer, gift packs and branded merchandise.
The Brewhouse taproom can also be hired to host parties and corporate events in a unique setting. We also supply our beer for weddings, parties and other events in a variety of polypins and casks sizes.
