The Exe Valley Brewery in Silverton has announced that after nearly forty years, it is to cease brewing beer and will be winding up it's operation in the next month. There will however be some special deals on it's remaining stock ! :( 🍺

Sad news. Used to get them in as guest ales back in the day. Dobs, Devon Gloria's especially Exeter Old. Excellent beers.

I agree. Very sad news that. Have any reasons been given ?

Fortunately other local craft beers are available and we don't need to resort to the generally average fare produced by the big brewing companies.

The reason given - "Despite the enormous effort from everyone on the team, the reality of the current economic situation for our customers and the hospitality industry has made it impossible for us to operate profitably".
The full statement and history of the brewery is to be found on page 22 of last Thursday's Echo.
