We’re a pair of best mates who go back about 30 years and love a decent pint. After lengthy careers in building and marketing, our passion for individual, tasty beers, inspired us to start creating our own, and so in 2013, GT Ales was born. The brewery’s name is derived from the ‘G’ from Gary and the ‘T’ from Toby, so not rocket science, but a simple, memorable name that fits with our brewing processes and ideas.
From a 100 litre 'garage' set up, popularity for our products grew from the offset and so in early 2015, a 5BBL system was built and installed in to our new premises on the Old Aerodrome in Chivenor, North Devon.
Continuing to grow, we now supply around 50 outlets, which include pubs, restaurants, shops and hoilday parks, the majority of which are across North Devon.
BREWERY OF THE YEAR 2017/18
We were pleased as punch to receive the award in December. Out of 19 local breweries, we came out on top with overwhelming votes from the real ale drinkers themselves.
