Dartmoor IPA supporting Dartmoor Rescue Group

Posted by Mike C in Dec 2017

Fans of our fabulous craft brew Dartmoor IPA have helped us to support the life-saving work of the Dartmoor Rescue Group.

Over the course of the year, every pint of Dartmoor IPA enjoyed at a Dartmoor pub has included a donation to the Dartmoor Rescue Group, and Brewery MD Richard Smith recently had the pleasure of handing over a cheque for £3600 to Alec Collyer, Chairman of the Ashburton brand of the DRG.

The Dartmoor Rescue Group consists of four teams of volunteers to cover the 365 square miles of Dartmoor and beyond.  The teams provide a search and rescue service...

Posted by Mike C in Nov 2017

The Pub2Pub crew are currently on a globetrotting mission to find us the most inspirational beers in the world.  Here, they report back some of the findings they’ve made since leaving Dartmoor at the start of their mission to travel from the northernmost bar on the planet, to the southernmost. 

Svalbard Bryggeri (Norway)

On our quest to begin The Pub2Pub Expedition at the northernmost bar on the planet, it was inevitable that a question would drift into our minds – what’s the world’s northernmost brewery?  Well, we found the answer surprisingly close to the northernmost bar – Svalbard Bryggeri, located in Longyearbyen,...

Pub2Pub - rediscovering the lost art of travel

Posted by Mike C in Jul 2017

We are excited to be sponsoring the Pub2Pub Expedition, a very British blend of elegance and eccentricity, capturing the spirit of the lost art of travel.

Pub2Pub is a mammoth 30,000 mile overland journey from the northernmost bar on the globe, to the southernmost, crossing oceans, continents and cultures, and travelling by sports car, yacht and ship.  

The expedition is the brainchild of Ben Coombs, an automotive writer and adventurer who’s always looking for new ways to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of offbeat travel.

The epic journey started at the Two Bridges Hotel on Dartmoor, before heading north, very far north,...

The Firkin Challenge 2017

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2017

Dartmoor Brewery was proud to sponsor the 2017 Firkin Challenge, in support of the brilliant Jeremiah's Journey charity.

The 6th annual Firkin Challenge took place on Sunday 4th June, and saw slightly bonkers teams of two lugging an empty Dartmoor Brewery firkin (an awkwardly-shaped and distinctly heavy 9-gallon cask) aroud a 4 mile course starting and finishing at the Royal Oak Inn in Meavy, and taking in the normally relaxing beauty-spots of Burrator Reservoir and Sheepstor.

Winners of the 2017 Firkin Challenge were Simon Francis and Ben Adelsbury, completing the amazing feat in just over 42 minutes.  They were closely followed by...
