Production of our
distinctive ales began at our Exminster brewery in 2003, thereby restoring the
tradition of local brewing lost to the Exeter community since Heavitree
Breweries ceased brewing operations in 1970.
Exeter Brewery Limited (formerly The Topsham & Exminster Brewery) is
located in the delightful setting of a nature reserve managed by the RSPB and
is close to the now-preserved Exeter Ship Canal; the oldest of its type in
England, c.1566. The naming of our Ferryman and Avocet ales reflect our support
for this interesting and important conservation area.
