The Small Batch Brewery

F orming the centrepiece of our Visitor Centre in St Austell, the Small Batch Brewery launched in 2016 and has been the source of unique and innovative beers ever since.

The brewery

The Small Batch Brewery builds on the success of our previous micro-brewery but delivers up to 3,000 pints at any one time, instead of the previous 600. There are six state-of-the-art fermenting vessels, each catching the eye with gleaming stainless steel and polished copper cladding.

Each year, our highly passionate and experienced brewing team gets creative, challenging the boundaries of brewing ingredients, beer styles, and ABVs. The Small Batch Brewery gives our brewers the freedom to experiment, and we launch an exciting programme of limited-edition beers in cask and bottles to pubs, our Visitor Centre shops, and online.

Our small batch brews take inspiration from all corners of the world. You can expect everything from juicy blonde ales to zesty IPAs, citrusy pale ales, and gorgeously rich beers from the darker side of the spectrum. Keep your eyes peeled for some fascinating collaborations along the way too. Many of our most popular beers, including our flagship Tribute pale ale, started out as small batch releases. Be sure not to miss out on the chance to be among the first to try the next big thing.
