The History of Hanlons

Meet the team

While successfully moving all staff and expertise to the new site the Hanlons team are made up of family members and a great team of beer loving enthusiasts!

Our Beers

Our recipes are not produced ‘’just to be different’’, they are all about great taste, consistency and fantastic flavours.

Our mission is to produce world class craft beers. We are passionate about producing beers with the taste that our customers love.
Forget the added preservatives and indigestible commercial beers on the market, we are all about providing excellent real craft beer. We use the best quality barley and hops from the UK’s top suppliers and water from our rolling Devon hills.

A sustainable business

At Hanlons we pride ourselves on being a sustainable and environmentally friendly business. All of our water is from our own bore holes and the spent grains go to the local farmer or the Hanlons pigs. Delivery mileage is kept to a minimum and we have also recently installed a tailor-made solar PV system to power all of the machinery. Using the expertise of local company, SunGift Solar, energy-usage patterns were analysed in depth and the solar system installed to perfectly match the brewery’s requirements.

Multi-Award Winning

We are proud to have won a string of awards for our beers over the years including national and local accolades. Our passion for brewing coupled with our stringent production techniques helps us to create excellent beers as our awards testify.
