Welcome to St Austell Brewery

Serving Cornwall's finest beers in stunning pubs across the South West.

From humble beginnings

Founded in 1851, what has come to be known as St Austell Brewery originally began life as Walter Hicks Wine & Spirits. It wasn't until 12 years later, Walter began brewing his own beer, the first of which was created in the Seven Stars Inn. Since then, we've gone on to brew some of the nation's most beloved pints and run an impressive pub estate alongside it for guests to quench their thirst with one of our award winning beers.
