THE BREWERY TEAM

We have a small and perfectly formed team at our family run brewery. Despite coming from a wide range of backgrounds and industries, we are united by a love for great beer and a passion to deliver the best product possible for our customers.

What we have learnt so far

The story behind our beer

Our beers are genuinely hand crafted - tested for quality at every stage of the brewing process - and packaged with real love and care.

Each recipe is unique, and driven by our desire to create a fantastic product, not to reduce costs or find cheaper ingredients.

We work closely with our customers, delivering the beer ourselves whenever possible, and building lasting relationships.

We are a genuine, independent brewery, making beers we really love.
Awards
Cheers to us

OUR AWARDS

Awards are recognition of our achievements, independently judged. So they mean an
awful lot to us. We won our first CAMRA award for Padstow IPA within six months of
starting production, and it remains our best-seller in bottle today.

We have since won a total of 24 awards, from CAMRA, SIBA and Taste of the West. In
2015 our Padstow Sundowner was judged as their Champion Beer by Taste of the
West, a fantastic achievement against very strong well-established competition.

Doing our bit

COMMUNITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

As a brewery we have always aimed to minimise our impact on the environment, and worked hard to support causes which enhance our local community. All of our spent grain and hops are donated to a local farmer as cattle and pig feed, and we rigorously sort our recycling to minimise landfill and protect our precious oceans from waste plastic. Like many breweries we use a heat exchanger in the brewhouse to recycle waste heat into the next brew.

National Lobster Hatchery

Lobster Tale

Since 2015 we have been working with the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow. This fantastic charity encourages the sustainable fishing of lobster, preserving the stocks and with it helping to support local fishermen and restaurants which depend upon this delicate fish. Lobster Tale is a 4.5% zesty wheat beer, and every bottle sold donates 10p to this fantastic cause. You can find out more at www.nationallobsterhatchery.co.uk. If brewing beer is not enough, we recently hosted the inaugural Padstock festival, with proceeds from this fantastic party helping to support the hatchery.

RNLI

Lifeboat Lager

You can’t live or work in Cornwall without being aware of the sea, and it is equally impossible to be unaware of the dangers is poses, especially to those whose livelihood depends upon it. When George and Simon were making up names for new can beers at the start of 2018, Lifeboat Lager kept coming to the fore. The idea of brewing a really great lager to support such a great charity stuck, and the Lager was born. Since then we have brewed the beer a number of times, and attended the inspiring Padstow and Newquay Lifeboat days to help support the events which raise additional funds to support the RNLI. This year we even ventured as far as Poole to support the RNLI College Food and Drink festival. We hope that this partnership will continue for years to come. You can find out more about the work the RNLI do at www.rnli.org

The Fishermen's Mission

Cricket on the Bar

Born out of a great idea, playing a cricket match on the sand bar in the camel estuary in August is such an obvious way to spend your Sunday afternoon. We couldn’t believe it hadn’t been done before, and with the help of the Cornish cricket league, and volunteer teams from Padstow Social Club and the Red Lion Pub, in 2018 cricket on the bar became a reality. The first match ended in a slightly soggy drawer, but in 2019 the return leg was more decisive. Cricketing exploits aside, we decided from the off that this event should support the Fisherman’s Mission, an amazing charity whose work helps to support those who have lost loved ones at sea, or who need support after a lifetime in the fishing industry, one of the most hazardous occupations in existence. www.fishermensmission.org.uk

Falmouth University

Student Artwork

When in 2018 we decided to put our first beers into can, our first thought was how to make the cans standout in a crowded marketplace. In Cornwall we are surrounded by talented artists, and Falmouth University in particular is a hub of creative energy. When we approached them with the idea of a collaboration – to feature student’s artwork on our cans – they were hugely supportive. And we continue to be blown away by the results. Combining great beer and great art is a perfect partnership, and one we are continuing into 2020.
