Announcing our two latest White Label releases

We just released two new White Label Series beers, they are now available from the Brewery, and from selected craft beer bottle outlets.  They are our Chuckleberry Sour, and our Double Stout.  Here’s some more information on them:
Chuckleberry Sour
The delicious result of a long term collaboration between the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust and ourselves. Using our ‘Thirst Born’ as a base we added 300g/L of a hybridised Redcurrant/Blackcurrant/Gooseberry called a Chuckleberry, these were expertly grown by the staff and volunteers at ‘Dame Hannah’s.’ The resulting beer is bracingly tart with the Chuckleberries adding considerable acidity to the base beer […]

2017 Hop Club sees 1150% increase in yield!

What an abundant 2017 Hop Club harvest we had.  Last year was our first year, and our total harvest was 1.3kg.  This year, that has risen to a staggering 15kg of delicious fresh hops!  Harvest day was wonderful.  People brought in their produce whether in a tiny little bag or, in one case, a tea cup, or in anything up to some rather large bin bags, groaning with hops.  The smell in the Brewery was amazing.  Here are some portraits of some of the very finest hop farmers in all of Totnes!
