Salcombe Brewery Co. is delighted to announce that it has just secured a listing of its golden ale, Shingle Bay which will be available to Ei Group’s pubs across the south from May.


Also, in May, the brewery’s Seahorse will be available nationally to all of the group’s pubs and Salcombe Brewery will donate 5p for every pint sold to the Seahorse Trust, helping to keep our coastline clean.


Mark Higgs, Salcombe Brewery’s General Manager, explains: “We are thrilled to be working with Ei Group, the UK’s largest pub company. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to introduce our much-loved craft ales to a wider audience. Ei Group’s decision to work with us is a testament to our ongoing investment in our staff and brewery and our drive for quality and innovation.” Ei Group is the largest portfolio manager of pubs in the UK, with over 4,400 properties and Paul Hine, Senior Purchasing Manager comments: “We have been extremely impressed by Salcombe Brewery’s rapid growth and its commitment to developing an outstanding portfolio of ales and we are confident that Shingle Bay will become a firm favourite amongst our customers and communities alike.”


Salcombe Brewery was founded in 2016 and brews a range of cask, keg and bottled ales at its state of the art brewery overlooking the Salcombe Estuary in Devon. It uses only the finest hops, malt and yeast combined with fresh Devon water from straight under the brewery. Shingle Bay (ABV 4.2%) was the first ale it produced and is a delightfully easy drinking golden beer that has a pleasant fruity aroma and a subtle crisp bite.

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’s range includes Shingle Bay, Salcombe Pale Ale, Salcombe Gold, Island Street Porter, Lifesaver, Seahorse and Devon Amber. It also boasts an innovative range of seasonal ales.
