The beers I drank last week in Devon and Cornwall.
Skinners Brewery (Truro, Cornwall):
St Austell Brewery (est. 1851):
(Tribute is one of the region’s most popular beers; pale amber in colour and with malt and citrus notes).
Sharp’s Brewery (Rock, Cornwall):
Eden Pure Ale
(From the brewery more famous for Doom Bar, this recent gold-coloured beer is brewed in collaboration with the Eden Project)
Palmer’s Brewery (Bridport, Dorset):
The Dartmoor Inn, Merrivale.
A 17th Century coaching inn, 1000 feet above sea level and on the open moor, by Merrivale Bridge and near the fascinating Merrivale prehistoric monuments site.
Plume of Feathers, Princetown.
A coaching inn since 1785 and across the road from the hotel (now Visitor Centre) where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles.
