About Exe Valley Brewery

One of the oldest breweries in Devon, operating from our barn since 1984 (previously as Barron Brewery).

Exe Valley Brewery got new owners in November 2020. Husband and wife team Libby & Kevin bought the brewery during the COVID lockdown, in the belief that quality would win out and they could survive into the new year. We're still here, and along with our extremely talented brewer James Fryer, still producing delicious Devon beer.

We're located in the most beautiful slice of English countryside, with incredible views over the county, and are working hard to make it a must visit place for beer fans.

(Some elements like our beer garden are still a work in progress, so please do call ahead if you'd like to visit us!)

Signature beer

Dob's Best Bitter

This is our most popular and signature beer. For us, it represents a perfect balance between malty sweetness and fresh hop aromas - light, golden and easy to drink. Perfect any time of the year. Available on draught and now in bottles!
