New White Label release: Huell Melon & Amarillo Saison

Today we release the latest in our White Label Series, our Huell Melon & Amarillo Saison.  We’re really rather proud of this one.

Totnes Stout wins national Gold

The original Lion Brewery, which ran for decades in Totnes before closing in 1921, was renowned, according to posters from the time, for its ‘celebrated Totnes Stout’.  The town’s New Lion Brewery, which opened in 2013 on Station Road, and which brews its own version of Totnes Stout, can now justifiably call its present day Stout ‘celebrated’ too, having been judged to be the best cask stout in the country.

The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) recently held their ‘BeerX’ event in Sheffield, an event at which their prestigious National Independent Beer Awards are held.  Having already won Gold in […]
