Established in 1998, using the brew plant from Lundy Island, the brewery was originally located at the families’ pub near Westward Ho! During the summer of 2002 it moved to its current location at The Big Sheep, Abbotsham, where you can visit the working brewery and retail outlet. In 2005 a new state of the art brewery and a bottling plant was installed enabling the brewery to keep up with increasing demand.
For nearly 20 years we have created and developed a range of ales incorporating different tastes, strengths, trends and ingredients. We can now produce up to 15,000 pints per week and are currently the largest brewery in North Devon.
Country Life Brewery combines state of the art equipment with traditional brewing techniques to ensure that there is a consistency of product and the beers produced are amongst the very best in the U.K today.
