Skinners Brewery

Brewers of the finest, hoppiest beers in Cornwall!

Skinners Brewery

In 1997, armed only with his own surname, a chap called Steve dreamed of setting up a community brewery in Cornwall.

On the banks of the Truro River, he and his family brewed a ground-breaking golden ale, and named it after the tin-mining faeries of local myth. With Cornish Knocker, Steve set out his stall for concocting trailblazing ales, following it with another legendary brew, a brazen amber ale called Betty Stogs, which CAMRA named Britain’s best bitter.

Countless barrels and hundreds of awards later, the company has grown, but they’re still a family business, rooted in the area they live and work, whether that’s in sourcing Cornish-grown barley, doing their bit for their corner of the planet or enjoying a bit of surfing and shanty-singing.
