About St Austell Brewery
Family brewery since 1851, based at St Austell, Cornwall, producing a range of cask ales. Supplied to 150 tied houses, and to the free trade.
Founded in 1851 by Cornishman Walter Hicks, today St Austell Brewery remains 100% independent and family owned. St Austell Brewery operates a growing and diverse business.
Our brewery in St Austell produces many of the region’s most popular beers for sale in pubs, bars and supermarkets in Cornwall, Devon, across the UK and also overseas
Our Pubs, Inns and Hotels
Our thriving estate spans the South West ranging from Bristol in the east to the Isles of Scilly in the west. Indeed many of the South West’s most famous pubs are part of the St Austell Brewery estate and you will usually find one of our pubs at the heart of every community, particularly in Cornwall
It’s not just about our own beer; St Austell Brewery is also the South West’s leading wholesale supplier to the licensed hospitality sector, delivering beers, lagers, ciders, wines, spirits and soft drinks to nearly 5000 bars, restaurants, hotels, pubs and clubs in South West England. Indeed company founder Walter Hicks, began as a maltster and wine merchant and today our Walter Hicks Wine business still provides a key component of our offer.

St Austell Brewery also offers an extensive range of industry training and our training centre in St Austell is widely recognised and accredited as a centre of excellence in training for the hospitality sector.
