About Driftwood Spars Brewery

The Driftwood Spars Brewery was founded in 2000 and is joined with The Driftwood Spars – a unique and characterful pub loved by locals and visitors alike, which overlooks the dramatic and beautiful Cornish coastline here at Trevaunance Cove.

The brewery is a five barrel plant and we brew in small batches, allowing us great control over the quality and consistency of our beers. All our beers are gluten free and many are also vegan. We use premium British malts and source the finest hops; we are increasingly using new-wave English hops as new varieties are developed and perfected.

We are proud to have received many awards for our beers over the years, particularly the Champion Winter Beer of Great Britain 2012, awarded by CAMRA for Alfie’s Revenge.
