About Us

According to legend, Spingo Ale has been brewed on the premises of the Blue Anchor Inn, Helston, Cornwall for approximately 600 years!

The Blue Anchor is one of only 4 original brew pubs left in the country still brewing today which continued to brew throughout and has the prestige of being Cornwall's oldest brewery.

Kim & Simon Stone, took over the Blue on July 23rd 1993, at the time there were only 3 Spingo Ales being continuously brewed;

Spingo Middle 5%,

Spingo Best 5.5%

Spingo Special 6.6%. 


During the last 27 years we have produced 4 more permanent Spingo Ales and with our son, Ben Stone,  as the head brewer, it is has truly become a family business.

Our business has expanded into Porthleven with the opening of our sister pub, Out of The Blue, of course selling our famous Cornish Spingo Ales, with caravan & camping facilities on the premises it makes for an idyllic setting for traveller's who want to get Spingo'd
