As the only brewery on the moor producing Dartmoor branded beer, we’re passionate about preserving and promoting Dartmoor and its traditions, from working with local suppliers to supporting the community and protecting the environment.
When the new purpose-built Dartmoor Brewery was constructed in 2006, great care was taken to ensure both the building and our brewing methods were as environmentally friendly as possible.
As well as sourcing our ingredients as locally as possible to reduce food miles and our carbon footprint, we are proud to use all products during the brewing process in an environmentally friendly way.
A key part of our traceability programme means that all our spent malt grains and liquids are collected every week by an accredited local farmer to be fed to cattle and pigs.
We are also committed to supporting good local pubs, community groups and events. In recent years, Dartmoor Brewery has backed a range of worthy local causes including pub launches, sporting clubs and music events.
The village of Princetown remains close to the heart of Dartmoor Brewery and we are proud of our ongoing efforts to support the local community, which include sponsoring and supporting the village football club, Princetown F.C.
Dartmoor welcomes a range of sporting events and endurance tests throughout the year and we like to do our bit, in the past sponsoring The Dartmoor Ten Tors and launching our very own Dartmoor Brewery Big Hash walking event across the moor.
Since 2010, Dartmoor Brewery has also sponsored Chagstock, a lively music festival on the northern edge of Dartmoor, supplying real ales as the event’s official beer supplier. We also teamed up with local gourmet food producer Tom’s Pies to create a one-off Official Chagstock Pie made with steak and Jail Ale – it went down a treat with hungry revellers!
