“People, land and history have come together to craft beers with cavernous depth and character”
Cheddar Ales began its artisan brewing activities in October 2006 and is based at Winchester Farm on the edge of Cheddar village, near the famous Cheddar Gorge.
We have 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 our beers.
Many of our beers are multi award winning, culminating in our session IPA, Piney Sleight, being voted the best cask beer in the South West region in 2022.
