O’Hanlon’s Brewery started its career - as a pub. Liz and John O’Hanlon ran their “O’Hanlon’s” pub in Clerkenwell, London for several years before they came up with the idea to brew their own beer. The pub/brewery combination proved a resounding success and regulars would eagerly await the next beer for sampling – a nervous and exciting time for the landlords. It was easy to see which beers would work as locals would happily provide their instant and unremitting feedback. This joyful (or occasionally painful) feedback meant a closeness both to the product and the consumer that laid the foundations for the craft beers they produce today. The brewery eventually outgrew both the pub and its modest location under railway arches. And by this stage the O’Hanlons had the addition of a young family so that it became necessary in Jan 2000 to relocate everything to Devon. Brewers Alex Bell and Richard also relocated and together they began the task of brewing on a far grander scale. Today, in this tiny corner of Devon, O’Hanlons produce some of the finest and most well regarded ales in the country.
