Christmas Ale is Here!

Posted by Mike C in Nov 2023

The Dartmoor Brewery team have been dusting off their oh-so-stylish Christmas hats today, to mark the launch of our fabulously festive Christmas Ale.

Our Christmas Ale is a light bodied yet full flavoured yuletide beer with festive notes of Christmas spice and rich pudding fruit on the finish. As Santa himself would surely declare, it's a well-rounded, easy-drinking beer with nutty and biscuity flavours.

The Dartmoor Brewery elves are already out delivering our Christmas Ale to fine pubs across the South West. If your local hasn't put their order in yet, be sure to give them a nudge.

By popular demand, our limited-edition Ice Warrior Ale is back, and we are once again supporting polar expeditions and the study of climate change by donating profits to the Ice Warrior Project.

The first edition of Ice Warrior Ale was launched (and sold out!) in April 2021, as we teamed up with Dartmoor-based polar explorer Jim McNeill and his Ice Warrior Project. This very special ale is broadly based around the original and multi-award winning Jail Ale, with some changes to the recipe to create a unique, limited-edition beer using traditional methods and ingredients, and which captures the spirit of exploration...

Return of the Dragon

Posted by Mike C in Sep 2020

Dragon's Breath is back!  This seasonal beer is always a popular additional to our Autumn and Winter range, and it's on its way to great pubs right now.

Flavoured with black treacle, Dragon’s Breath (4.4%) is a unique beer ideally suited to the cooler months, and was originally launched in the snows of December 2010. Deep ruby-brown coloured, rich and full-bodied with a delicious aftertaste of morello cherries, it's a real treat for the senses.
