Return of the Ice Warrior

Posted by Mike C in May 2022

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.

Refreshing new IPA in time for Summer

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2019

With thoughts turning to warmer days ahead, we've launched a rather refreshing new twist on one of our classics - a new chilled IPA which is set to be featured across South West pubs in time for the Summer rush, after visitors to the recent Devon County Show gave it a resounding thumbs-up.

The new Keg IPA, based on our long-established and well-regarded traditional Dartmoor IPA cask ale, is a filtered beer designed to be served cold, making it ideal for Summer drinking. Visitors to the Dartmoor Brewery bar at the recent Devon County Show were given a taster of the new beer ahead of...
