Welcome to Cider By Post - Craft Beer And Cider from the Westcountry.


The Westcountry has many claims to fame… beautiful countryside, pretty villages, great beaches, fabulous produce. We also have some of the best small breweries in the country and we are, of course, the home of cider.

My name is Steve Post. I have worked in the Westcountry brewing trade for the past 12 years. The aim of beersbypost.com is to bring you the very best Westcountry beers and ciders from small craft breweries and cider farms - and hopefully some of my knowledge too.

I have personally visited and tested all the products (tough job, but somebody has to do it!) and have specially chosen beers and ciders that represent the best of what our area can offer, from small producers. Producers such as Burrow Hill Cider Farm in Somerset – a completely unique place that sums up Somerset cider making (visit if you can, it’s amazing). And Otter Brewery, set in a beautiful valley within the Blackdown Hills in Devon (and my favourite beer).

Mixed cases picked for you, or pick your own.

Wedding Bars

We have been doing successful event bars at beersbypost.com for some time. We do all sorts of events - from festivals to country shows, and corporate events. We even do motor sport events.  However, until last year, we had never been involved in weddings. I had been warned off the idea by many people in the trade. Luckily, I never listen to advice, and I agreed to eight wedding bars last summer. I'm so pleased we agreed to do them. It is very special being part of a couples wedding day. The bar can play a big role in the success of the party...the couple needs to trust you to get it right. We have several meetings with the bride and...
