Our story

John Clavell and James Hind, both infamous highwaymen, rode the coaching routes of England’s south west, stopping at inns and public houses to quench their appetites, rest and plot. Knights of the road have been linked with drinking establishments for centuries. These heroic and courageous men were held in high esteem by the people, as stories of their daring spread fast across the country, engraining their names in English folklore.

Inspired by the bold spirit of these historic highwaymen, Clavell & Hind approaches brewing in an innovative, ambitious manner – in technique, recipes and beer styles. Putting a premium on quality and consistency, the brewery takes inspiration from the traditional and interprets each beer in a unique and distinctive style.

The beers are highly drinkable, full flavoured and balanced; they hold the characteristics of hops and malt in equal measure. All our beers are cold conditioned for a week to achieve extra clarity.
