Sampford Courtenay Cider
A mellow, amber, traditional Devon Cider (ABV 5.5%), slightly sweet with a wonderfully cider apple taste. Plenty of tannin, which has been softened by ageing, complements the sweetness to give a full ‘old fashioned’ character which delights your taste buds. Only apples from their own orchards are sued – traditional English Cider Apple varieties, Ellis Bitters, Dabinette, Michelin and Browns apple – blended to their own unique recipe. Craft cider in the time-honoured way. 100% fresh apple juice, no nasty modern flavourings no concentrate. Just fresh pressed cider from their own apples fermented and lovingly produced on the farm.
Otter Amber (ABV 4.0%) was first brewed for the trade in March 2009 as a mid gravity beer to complete the Otter range. Over the last 10 years the ‘mid gravity’ beer has become popular with drinkers, delivering a reasonable strength with great flavour. This gave us the opportunity to develop a really special beer, which within a month of its launch, won its first award in Newton Abbot at SIBA’s prestigious Tuckers Maltings beer festival. Otter Amber has all the qualities of other Otter beers but with a more complex mix of aroma and flavour.
Teignworthy Brewery Reel Ale
A popular session beer at 4%. It has a clean, quenching taste and smooth finish. It is made with traditional floor-malted barley and a blend of English hops.
Blacktor Brewery Tor Ale
Dartmoor’s finest 4.8% premium ale. Brewed using traditional methods using only English grown malt and hops. This deep golden brown ale provides a hoppy aroma and a sweet malty finish.
Hanlons Yellow Hammer Golden Pale Ale
A light and refreshing golden 4.2% ale that’s so flavour packed it’s bursting. This golden, zesty beer is laden with bittersweet flavours, from Admiral and late hopped with First Gold and Cascade. It is aromatic with pineapple and banana fruitiness with a delicate hoppy finish from dry hopping with First Gold. Eminently drinkable and profoundly refreshing.
Cotleigh Brewery Tawny Owl Bitter
Produced since 1979, Tawny Bitter has become one of the most popular beers in the West Country. Brewed using Devon pale and crystal malted barley and Herefordshire hops, Tawny is a distinctive well balanced best bitter with a subtle hop palate which blends with the sweetness of the malt. Tawny has been a finalist in the Champion Beer of Britain Competition, and is a two-time Good Beer Guide “Beer of the Year”.

Dartmoor Brewery Legend Cask Ale
A classic cask-conditioned beer: smooth, full-flavoured and balanced, with a crispy malt fruit finish. Legend is golden brown in colour with an aroma of fresh baked bread and a hint of spice. Launched in 2010, this modern day beer represents the very best of traditional brewing.
