About us

Ales of Scilly is the only brewery based on St Mary’s, the largest island of the Isles of Scilly, bobbing around in the Atlantic just off the coast of Cornwall, UK.

Set up in 2001 as a bit of a hobby for local teacher Mark Praeger, Ales of Scilly has been supplying the islands and parts of Cornwall and Devon with quality craft ales.

The ales can be found at various freehouses, cafes and restaurants across the 5 inhabited isles and is bottled on site to make it available in shops and online so you can take a taste of Scilly home with you.

Having spent 16 years brewing, last year Mark decided that it was time to hand over the pumps to someone who could take Ales of Scilly to the next generation of ale fans and after a bit of a search found an enthusiastic Jen Trevithick from Cornwall who took on the business in 2017.
Mark continues to assist with brewing when needed and is looking forward to watching it grow. Jen has lots of plans for the brewery and is looking at expanding the range in the near future so watch this space!
