Lympstone Manor – Celebration of Speed 2019

We’ve received some fantastic photos from the Lympstone Manor #Celebrationofspeed on the 3rd of July.

An extremely exciting day with guest speaker Rob Smedley from Williams Formula One followed by live music from Bill Ding & The Skyscrapers & Steve Knightley.

It’s the first year of the evening celebrations, but with such a great location we all expect this will grow rapidly.

Great to see the guests enjoying our #RealAles as well as our new #IPL #Lager.

In 2009 when we first created #Avocet it was #Devon’s first organic real ale. Now ten years later we have pulled-off another “first”, IPL is Devon’s first organic lager!


It’s collection day for Gilbert (Our local Devonshire Farmer) who takes away our spent grain in order to feed his herd of cows!

👍Thumbs up below for Gilbert a proper Devon farmer helping Exeter Brewery on our sustainability mission!
