Teignworthy celebrates it’s 20th Anniversary on 24 June 2014, time has slipped away since John first brewed the first pint of Reel Ale with Rachel his wife setting up the company. He has acheived 32 different awards for his ales. The most noted one came in the summer of 2011 in London. This was at the Great British Beer Festival at Earls Court organised by CAMRA, Silver Medal in the Bitter Class for Reel Ale! He says “we have won many awards at Tuckers Maltings Beer Festival too with brews like the Russian Imperial Porter, Amy’s Ale and Beachcomber.” (see below).
The Brewery keeps to strong traditions of using local ingredients, malts, hops, yeast and water – that is all! It is run as a family business with Heather Dade and Chris Robins. I expect many of you have met the friendly Boys who also work along side.
Teignworthy has strong links with the local pubs and clubs in the surrounding area and has campaigned avidly to cut Duty rates (see above). John does his best to help keep young people employed in the industry, keeping duty low helps this aim.! Some 7000 youngsters are employed in this industry.
CHEERS TO THE NEXT 20 YEARS! PLEASE KEEP SUPPORTING OUR LOCAL PUBS – THEY NEED YOU, says all at Teignworthy! CHEERS!
