We absolutely thrilled to announce that 'Devon Rock Craft Lager' & 'Bays Gold' both won GOLD at the prestigious Food & Drink Devon Awards! Topsail & Devon Dumpling also took silver. The valued Food & Drink Devon Awards celebrate the very best Devon has to offer by recognising the most respected and influential artisan food and drink producers in the county. 

Paignton-based Bays Brewery is blazing a trail in the craft lager revolution with the launch of Devon Rock. This latest addition is fast becoming a firm favourite among discerning drinkers in Torbay, stocked in select local restaurants, bars and pubs.  Described as a crisp, flavoursome lager brewed for the 21st century, Devon Rock craft lager is created from specially selected hops and local malt.

We have brewed a one off beer for the Rugby World Cup, aptly named ‘Nice Try’. The name was derived via a competition on social media!

We have teamed up with our friends at Paignton Zoo Environmental Park to brew a one off ale, aptly named ”Tall Order” whereby we are donating 10p per bottle sold to Wildlife Conservation!

We are pleased to say we raised over £3,000 for rhino’s last year and hope to raise event more this time around!

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have won 3 top awards from Taste of the West – including GOLD for our multiple award winning ale Topsail!

We are delighted to welcome Sam to our team who has joined us this week to assist with deliveries. He joins Andy, Craig and Scott – what a team!

We are pleased to announce we have once again achieved full SALSA Accreditation – one of few breweries in the South West to have done so.

This demonstrates that we are producing safe and legal produce to a standard that far exceeds the minimum standards expected by the enforcement authorities.

We are proud to launch our new Lager – ‘Devon Rock’. Initial feedback has been fantastic! Pubs, shops, restaurants, hotels get in touch if you would like to give it a go!
