St Austell Brewery has been brewing beer in Cornwall since 1851. Fast forward 168 years and while traditional brewing techniques remain, innovation, passion and craftsmanship continue to evolve.
The business, one of the oldest in the county, is still independent and family-owned. Its range of award-winning beers, which are expertly brewed, bottled and barreled in Cornwall, exert flavour and character.
Best known for its flagship brand Tribute Cornish Pale Ale – first brewed 20 years ago - St Austell Brewery crafts its quality beers in some of the most advanced facilities in the country. The skilled brewing team – led by Brewing Director, Roger Ryman, since 1999 - brings together the very best Cornish ingredients wherever possible. Partnerships with local barley growers, and relationships with specialist hop growers across the world means St Austell Brewery can continue to brew new flavours and beer styles that delight.
Nicholson’s work with St Austell to brew our Nicholson’s Pale Ale all year round and regularly collaborate with them for exclusive seasonal releases. This autumn we have brewed Flanker and Firkin, a Sorachi Ace-hopped Red Ale for the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
