Salcombe Brewery is based in one of Devon’s finest locations on the Salcombe Estuary, famous for its wide sandy beaches. The brewery started life as Quercus in 2007 but it was bought by John and Gerry Tiner in 2012. They rebranded the beers, using a seahorse logo as the estuary is one of the few places where seahorses are still found. In 2016 the brewery relocated to a new, purpose-built, eco-friendly site with a 20-barrel kit alongside a visitor centre.

The beers can be found in cask form in pubs in the South-west. Bottles and cans have wider distribution, including bottle shops in the London area.

Pale Ale is brewed with Simcoe and Summit hops. It has a bronze colour with orange fruit, sherbet lemons, spicy hops and honey malt on the aroma. Bitter hops build in the mouth with tart citrus fruit and juicy malt. The finish is lingering and complex, interweaving between bitter hops, tart fruit and mellow malt.

12 330ml bottles are available for £25 from the brewery shop:
