About company

Driftwood Spars Brewery is a Partnership between award winning brewer, Peter Martin aka ‘Pete the Brewer’ and Louise Treseder, Landlady of the Driftwood Spars pub and restaurant. It is located in the stunning Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes, Cornwall. Pete & Lou started working together back in 2007 when Lou purchased the pub & brewery but couldn’t brew, she met Pete at a beer festival and since then the business has grown from strength to strength. It resulted in them going into a business partnership in 2014 and investing in the brewery to triple its capacity to meet increasing demand.


A bit about Pete: Pete was a city slicker and has worked as a computer programmer all over Europe. He gave up city life to live in Cornwall and be a wood carver (he is an awesome chainsaw carver), he also started to brew beer for “Bathtub brewery”. Now he is a fulltime brewer & makes delicious well crafted English ale, using English Malts & hops.


A bit about Lou: she is a proud Cornish woman and very passionate about her roots, she is the third female generation to work in the hospitality sector. She is also an avid fan of the television series Poldark, having read all the books when she took over the pub and is very pleased that the Driftwood Spars Brewery is the only brewery in “Poldark Country” where the series is set.


We work closely with our fantastic chefs at Driftwood Spars so all of our beers have been designed to pair well with a range of foods. We use them regularly in the food that we make in the pub, in everything from stews through to ice creams, and deserts. We produce a broad range of beers from light session ales like Blue Hills (4% ABV) through to Cornwall’s first gluten free beer Unexpected (4% ABV), and darker beers such as Bolsters Blood (our rich dark porter 5% ABV), we are confident we have something to suit every palette.
