Welcome to New Lion Brewery!  We are a 100% community-owned craft brewery based in Dartington, just outside of Totnes, Devon. Our brewery is based at Unit 1, Webbers Yard, Dartington, and our new taproom and bottle shop is at units 3 and 4 of the same building.

Please see our ‘getting our beer‘ page for our bar and shop opening times and information on how to arrange a visit to our brewery. Please always check our social media, ring us or email us before making a special journey to check we are open.

On this website you’ll find information about the brewery,  our beers, a bit about who we are, events, 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.
