Posted by Dartmoor Brewery in May 2016

Dartmoor Brewery have won five awards in this year's Taste of the West awards, an annual ceremony which celebrates food and drink producers in the west of the UK with a passion for quality. Taste of the West awarded Dartmoor Brewery gold for Jail Ale 4.8%, Legend 4.4% and Jail Ale Commemorative 9%. Dartmoor Best 3.7% and Dartmoor Gold 5.0% were awarded silver. Here at Dartmoor Brewery, we constantly strive to produce the highest quality products choosing locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. The main ingredient, malted barley, is grown on Dartmoor by farmer Tim Cox at Drewsteighton and malted at Tucker's Matling's in Newton Abbot. It's these ingredients, coupled with pure Dartmoor water, which gives our ales their distinctive taste. Mike Lunney, head brewer at Dartmoor Brewery, said: “We constantly strive to make the highest quality products possible, so it's great to see our hard work being recognised. “There is an ever increasing amount of competition in the beer production world, so we are very proud that our ales were so highly thought of in the Taste of the West awards.”
