Bays in the Community

We are extremely proud to both work with and support our local community. Since Bays Brewery began we have sponsored a number of local events to include the Occombe Farm Beer Festival, the Dartmouth Music Festival, Fishstock & the Summermoon Festival. In the summer of 2013 we teamed up with Paignton Zoo and since then, our partnership has raised over £20,000, with beers themed around a different endangered species each year to include rhinos, giraffes, gorillas, crocodiles, elephants & orangutans. We are really pleased to sponsor a number of local sporting teams to include Paignton Rugby Club, Paignton Cricket Club and Stoke Gabriel Cricket Club to name but a few. We look forward to working closely with all of them and sharing their successes in the years to come!
