Welcome to New Lion Brewery!  We are a community craft brewery based just outside of Totnes at Webbers Yard in Dartington.

Our brewery is based at Unit 1, Webbers Yard and our new taproom and bottle shop is at units 3 and 4.

Please see our ‘getting our beer‘ page for our bar opening times, information on how to arrange a visit to our brewery, membership growler availability and more. 

Until we are able to announce our full winter openin times, please check our ‘getting our beer‘ page, our social media or contact us to check our bar is open before making a special journey.

On this website you’ll find information about the brewery,  our beers, a bit about who we are, events, why investing in our pioneering Lion Share share offer could be the best thing you ever did, and something about why we’re called New Lion Brewery (it’s a historical thing).

You could think of us as being Dartington and Totnes, in a bottle.
