Pubs can have their Devon’s Own beer
A DEVON brewery is offering pubs and other licensed outlets the chance to have their own branded traditional cask ale.
Clearwater Brewery has been established in the north Devon town of Torrington for 20 years and under the current ownership for four years.
Head Brewer Paul Stewart-Reed, said: “There are so many different beers coming from large and small brewers that we decided it was appropriate that landlords had the chance to have a beer brand of their own.
“We have already had a couple of successful trials and have launched a tailored beer for two pubs in North Devon. Now we would like to extend the offer Devon-wide.”
‘High Tide’ is a four per cent abv smoky, smooth, chestnut traditional cask ale available in Martin Seymour’s Westward Arms in Westward Ho! and the Instow Arms in Instow.
Mr Seymour said: “Over the summer, the beer has gone down very well with our customers who like the fact that the pubs have their own beer.
“’High Tide’ is also used to sponser the tide boards outside my pubs and this cooperation highlights the best of two local businesses working together to meet customers’ needs.”
Clearwater offers its ‘Devon’s Own’ range across the county and beyond in both bottles and casks ranging from the 3.7 per cent abv ‘Real Smiler’ to a winter special ‘Dark Night at 5.2 per cent abv.
Paul Stewart-Reed added: “If there are landlords out there that want a beer that’s just for them, then give us a call or look at our website!”
