Ales & Beers
Summerskill's Brewery produce a range of cask and bottle conditioned “real ales” from ingredients sourced as locally as possible. Barley grown in Devon and Cornwall is malted at Tuckers in Newton Abbot. All of their recipes use whole leaf English hops mainly from Herefordshire and Worcestershire, with the exception of one aroma hop. The fermentation yeast is “wet” reducing the amount of waste yeast from each brew and allowing the strain to develop its own distinctive characteristics. The spent grains, the remains of the malted barley after mashing, are collected by a local farmer and fed to his cattle. Summerskill's beers can be found in pubs, shops and restaurants in Plymouth, West Devon, the South Hams and Torbay who are passionate about local produce. The brewery was founded in 1983 by Adam Summerskill and has been here in Plymstock since 1985.
Black Tor Brewery is an award-winning independent brewery located in the glorious Devon countryside in the village of Christow, Dartmoor National Park established in 2013.
With a reputation for the consistent quality and unique flavours of our cask-conditioned and bottled ales, we take pride in sourcing the finest English malting barley and English and New World whole-flower hops, to handcraft a range of three permanent core beers along with seasonal and limited edition brews.
