Cheddar Ales   Cheddar Ales Logo

Cheddar Ales begun its artisanal brewing activities in October 2006 and is based at Winchester Farm on the edge of Cheddar village, near the famous Cheddar Gorge.

There are currently five fermenting vessels, each one capable of holding 21.5 brewery barrels of beer, or around 6,150 pints. This gives a weekly brewing capacity of around 30,000 pints, which may sound a lot but is certainly 'micro' in terms of the brewing industry. By hand-crafting such relatively small volumes, Cheddar Ales can ensure that character, consistency and quality lie at the heart of all their beers.
