Country Life Brewery

Country Life Brewery was established in 1998, using the Brew plant from Lundy Island. The Brewery was originally located at the Pig On The Hill pub in Pusehill, Westward Ho!. In the late summer of 2002 the brewery moved to its current location at The Big Sheep tourist attraction, where you can visit the working brewery and our shop.

Our mission is simple – to produce the Country’s best Ales. We have developed a range of award winning ales including Old Appledore, Reef Break, Golden Pig, Shore Break, Country Bumpkin, Board Break and Black Boar. The Country Life Brewery combines state-of-the-art equipment with traditional brewing techniques which ensures that there is a consistency of product and the beers produced are amongst the very best real ales brewed in the UK today.

The success of the Ales has meant that our business has expanded rapiply, in 2001 the brewery capacity was doubled in size and then in 2005 the new state of the art brewery and bottling plant was installed enabling Country Life Brewery to keep up with demand and can now produce over 15,000 pints of award winning ales a week. We’re now North Devon’s largest brewer.

The Brewery shop sells bottles of Ales and various ciders. Take out “Kegs” of ales and beer are available in 18, 36 and 72 pints on request
