Dartmoor Brewery

Introducing our new MD

Posted by Mike C in Jul 2019

Our new Managing Director is Ian Cobham, and he's no stranger to Dartmoor Brewery having been our Head Brewer since 2016.

Ian takes the reins as we continue our growth in the craft ale sector within our Devon homeland, and through our growing portfolio of national trade customers outside of the region.

Since his appointment as Head Brewer in 2016, Ian has added new beers to the brewery’s award-winning range, including a new keg IPA designed to be served chilled, as well as reinforcing the brewery’s focus on quality, consistency and South West provenance.

An experienced and well-respected industry figure, Ian has previously worked with Cornwall’s Harbour Brewing Company, and Sharp’s Brewery.

In another new appointment announced today, Karen Lunney steps up to the role of Operations Manager.

Ian commented: “I am delighted to have this opportunity to lead Dartmoor Brewery into its next phase of development, particularly at a time when more and more beer drinkers are looking for top-quality ales with real local provenance. We are fortunate to have so many loyal Dartmoor Brewery fans and trade customers here in the South West, and a growing following in national markets beyond our traditional heartland.”
