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.

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.
