There are four traditional ingredients in our brewing - English malt, the finest hops, our own strain of yeast, and pure Dartmoor water. Then we add great people and an awesome location, to create some real magic in our craft ales.
Jail Ale - our original beer which quickly achieved fame and continues to win awards up and down the country. A full-bodied, deep golden brown beer, Jail Ale has a well-rounded flavour and a rich, moreish aftertaste.
A hand crafted amber ale, made with excellent English malted barley, our core range of hops and an excellent new hop variety giving a very drinkable dry hop citrus fruit character.
Dartmoor is our birthplace, our home, and the inspiration for our ales. All our beers are brewed in Princetown, at the heart of Dartmoor National Park in the South West of England, making us the highest brewery in England, at 1465ft above sea level. Breathtaking scenery, wide open spaces and crisp fresh air all around, creating a unique backdrop for the brewer’s art, and adding an undefinable depth, quality and character to every Dartmoor Brewery ale.
Visit Dartmoor for yourself if you can. Get out and experience it. Breathe the air, soak up the views, smell the essence of wild countryside, and feel the myths and legends. Find a glorious Dartmoor pub serving Dartmoor Brewery ales, and cherish the day.
We’re a small team, and we know how to brew great beer. Dartmoor is our playground and our workplace, and every day we use the best ingredients, the perfect setting, a whole bunch of passion and a touch of magic to create beers which we enjoy, and which we hope you will enjoy sharing with us.
Dartmoor Brewery has been honoured in the International Beer Challenge 2019, with three medals from a team of top judges.
