This is a really decent shop that also has a mail order online option. Not the huge choice of some other shops or online places but there is a nice focus on local south west beers and a good stab at some Belgian and US beers amongst their foreign list.
One nice touch with the online ordering is that they send out a local CAMRA publication with the order which puts a smile on my face. There is very good parking situated right by this store, alos closeish to the railways sttion.
Brewery and bottle shop along with the tap in a beautiful building just round the corner from the Railway Station. How to rate this though? As a bottle shop or Brewery Tap? There is certainly an interesting range of beers in the shop and it is more than acceptable to buy a bottle and drink it in the tap. The opening hours are obviously quite restrictive, which affects my mark, but a lovely place to visit.
It was a visitor center and a bottle shop with drink-in options when we visited the place in late September, but has now, in late October 2016, transformed to a taphouse micropub, being the main outlet for the Teignworthy brewery located next door. We had a really good time here sampling some of the brewery’s bottled beers. Lots of bottles and cans to choose from. Wooden benches, chairs and tables in a cellar-like atmosphere. Knowledgeable, attentive and friendly service. Smell of malt and Pet Shop Boys on the radio. Just a few minutes from the railway station. Should not be missed (Visited with Finn on a Tuesday afternoon, 27.09.2016).
Visited during the Tucker’s Maltings Beer Festival 23/04/10. Excellent selection of west country beers, particularly from Devon and Cornwall. Whilst it’s true that a large proportion are behind the serving counter, the staff were friendly and quite happy to talk through the ones out of immediate reach. The festival itself was top notch, with over 200 hundred beers from small brewers from the Isles of Scilly to Bristol on offer. The complex also houses the Maltings working museum and Teignworthy brewery. Excellent.

Decent online store with a range of stuff not easily avalable else where, very well packed and delivered smoothly
Fabulous bottle shop. Didn’t take the tour, but could smell the lovely malt. Outstanding selection of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset beers. Nearly all vintages of JW Lees Harvest Ale, for £3.99 a bottle! Great value all round. Well worth a detour.
Next door to Teignworthy brewery. Impressing bottle shop with a a few tables to sit down for sampling. They were in the process to convert the place into a taphouse this (2016) autumn. In April there even use to be a large beer festival right outside.
So much more then just a beer shop. Tickers Maltings is part of the fabric of British beer. Be careful tours are only on Wednesday, or were when I went, also only open 10:00 to 1:00 on a Saturday. This visit I didn’t do the tour instead bought from there extensive selection of beers. Most from the south west, but a few from further afield including Belgium and America. Well worth a visit.
Large selection of micros, also many local brews. Staff were friendly. The beers are displayed behind a counter, but they let me walk behind it to have a closer look at them.
Tucker’s Maltings are situated next to the Teignworthy brewery. All of their beers can be bought at Tucker’s Maltings, as well as their own range of Edwin Tucker’s beers.
