Salcombe Brewery Co. is showing its support for the England rugby team throughout the Rugby World Cup with the launch in September of its very special limited edition Red Rose beer, which will be available in 9g casks.


Brewer, Sam Beaman comments: “We are huge rugby fans here at Salcombe Brewery so we were very excited at the prospect of creating a beer to celebrate the World Cup. Just like the competition, Red Rose brings together some of the best ingredients from across the globe with hops from Britain, New Zealand and the New World. We like to think that the result is a world class beer and we hope that England will be coming out at the top of the table too!”


Red Rose (ABV 4.0%) is a mahogany malty beer that has a spiced caramel and toffee malt base with a balanced bitterness followed by a smooth fruity finish. Created using a range of both British, New World and New Zealand hops the result is a flavoursome beer that is both subtle and complex. Sam continues: “Red Rose is the ideal beer to enjoy throughout the World Cup season. I plan to team mine up with a steak and ale pie for the perfect match day combination and hope to be raising a glass or two to toast England’s success in the competition.”


Red Rose is part of Salcombe Brewery Co.’s seasonal range which complements the brewery’s much-loved year round beers Island Street Porter, Seahorse, Salcombe Pale Ale, Lifesaver, Devon Amber, Shingle Bay and Salcombe Gold.

Salcombe Brewery Co. was founded by John and Gerry Tiner in September 2016. After 35 years of fun-filled family holidays nearby, John and Gerry moved to the area and soon discovered that the local area’s favourite beer, Shingle Bay, might be under threat, so they decided to set up a new brewery and acquire the recipe. 

John and Gerry had a vision to create a company ethos of an eco-friendly, locally supportive brewery making a rich variety of mouth-watering beer. They secured investment both nationally and internationally by shareholders who shared the same sense of belief in the high quality of the beer.

Salcombe Brewery Co recently gained a new accolade for its award-winning Island Street Porter when it was named Champion Beer by Taste of The West, at their award ceremony in Exeter.
