Celebrating our Hop Harvesters of 2018!

Well didn’t we do well?  The total hop harvest for 2018 was just over 15kg, and would have been 20kg but for two of our biggest growers being unable, for one reason or another, to get their hops picked.  It was a lovely morning, everyone coming in with their yield, whether tiny or vast, all were equally celebrated.  We will keep you posted on when the Local Hero we brewed with it is ready.  Do tell your friends, we are always looking to add new growers.  Here are all the portraits of our wonderful growers bringing in their hops […]

Announcing the 2018 Sea Change New Lion Brewery Sessions!

We are so thrilled to be able to announce that once again, New Lion Brewery will be hosting some gigs by artists from Sea Change Festival, what looks like our strongest line-up yet.  Last year we hosted the brilliant Ryley Walker and other amazing performances too, and this year we will again be hosting some amazing artists.  As usual, gigs are free, open to anyone whether they have a Sea Change wristband or not, although if you do have a Sea Change band it will get you a 10% discount at the bar.

Our deepest thanks to Rupert and everyone […]

Proud sponsors of the Totnes 10k

“It was a great occasion, with the sell out race coping with the hot weather. It was very kind of Jac to deliver it on the Sunday morning.  The announcement of New Lion beer on the start line got a great cheer from competitors. We’ve had plenty of positive feedback already from visitors and locals who thought […]

It’s Party in the Town time!

This Saturday in Totnes is the rather wonderful Party in the Town, organised by Dartington Arts.  There is a great line-up of artists in venues across the town, some expected, some not!  You can see the full line-up here.  We’ve brewed a special beer for this occasion. It’s a hazy and juicy New England Pale at 4.9% with Ekuanot and Azacca hops. We will be running the bar at the Civic Hall where we will have it available on draft and bottles. Same at the Brewery itself.  There will also be fantastic food from our friends The Kitchen Table, Il vulcano and  The Naan Shack.  See […]
