Unveiling our New Extension

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in May 2017

We've taken the wraps off a major extension to our Princetown brewery complex, as we gear up to double our beer production within the next four years.

The £400k extension, part-funded by the South West Growth Fund, includes an expansion of production space and a new state-of-the-art boiler system integral to the brewing process.

The extension increases the floor space of the brewery complex by 40%, and provides additional storage and processing space, ensuring “grain to glass” quality control and beer consistency.  The improved infrastructure also ensures on-going compliance with the brewing industry SALSA quality scheme, within which Dartmoor Brewery has recently achieved compliance.
