Jail Ale on the run

Posted by Dartmoor Brewery in Jun 2014

Our famous beer brand, Jail Ale, went on the run over the moors earlier this month. As part of this year's Dartmoor Firkin Challenge, plucky pairs of runners took to the moorland carrying an empty cask of Jail Ale to run 6 miles from the Royal Oak pub in Meavy to the top of Sheepstor � and back again to refresh and celebrate this time with a full cask of Jail Ale! The event was started 3 years ago by Royal Oak landlord, Stephen Earp and has grown to be a very popular local event raising money for the Meavy Village...

Bumper harvest of Dartmoor barley

Posted by Dartmoor Brewery in Jun 2014

Here at Dartmoor Brewery we like to keep things local. In 2013, we commissioned local Dartmoor farmer, Tim Cox, to grow barley for our Dartmoor IPA beer � the first successful partnership of its kind on the moor.

Although, since stocking our range of beers it's certainly been converted into a fine real ale pub! Some of our customers have been...

Pulling together for Devon Tug of War Champions

Posted by Dartmoor Brewery in May 2014

We like to keep things local at Dartmoor Brewery and we're proud to support Dartmoor causes. This month we teamed up with the recently reformed Widecombe Tug of War team to provide sponsorship for the 2014 season. This includes providing a set of smart new branded jackets to help the group present a professional image in its quest to become national champions, which they sported while demonstrating they have real pulling power on a recent tour of the Brewery here in Princetown. The Widecombe Tug of War team dates to at least 1926, when most villages in Devon had a team to...
