WBA Visits Otter Brewery

Written by Keith Wheatley

WBA members outside the Otter Brewery BarOn a warm sunny evening members of Wellington Business Association undertook the tough task of a site visit – plus sampling and BBQ – at the award-winning Otter Brewery.

Situated in a beautiful wooded valley in the Blackdowns, just east of Dunkeswell airfield, Otter is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015 and going from strength to strength. Yet they are still based in the farmyard where it began.

Still a family-owned and run business, Otter now produces almost 30,000 pints of beer a week and is available all over southern England and in London, although the South West is its primary market place.
