An unusual collaboration between a brewery in Wiveliscombe and its neighbour, which produces high-specification saws for the timber industry, has resulted in a new beer called Bandsaw. The beer is brewed from Devon pale and crystal malted barley and carefully selected Goldings, Challenger and Styrian hops, to produce a golden colour, light fragrance and smooth fruity finish.

“I never dreamed I’d be on a beer label,” says Graham Smith, a ‘saw doctor’ who has worked on bandsaws at the EPS Services and Tooling workshop for 30 years.
