Nestling on the slopes of the Mendip Hills, within a stone's throw of the famous Cheddar Gorge, Cheddar Ales is an artisan brewery producing award winning real ales for you to enjoy at home as well as in the best pubs.
We produce a range of beers for traditional and modern tastes alike, that are best described as Simply Gorgeous.
Finest Raw Materials
We source the finest malted barley and whole hops available to us and local water straight from the Mendip Hills. Local provenance is important to us but we also like to experiment with raw materials from around the globe.
Made in Cheddar
As well as Cheddar Cheese and Cheddar Ales the local area has lots to offer. Breathtaking walks and stunning scenery abound and there are plenty of cosy pubs serving our beer in the area. There are loads of places to stay and the coast is only 10 miles away too if you prefer the smell of salt in the air.
Good With Food
As well as being delicious on their own, our beers pair very well with various foods. See our section on Beer with food for details and recipes.
New seasonal Karst Amber Rye, a twist on a classic American recipe, will be available from the 1st March. Brewed using Munich, Cara and Rye malt over a base of Maris Otter and hopped with Bramling Cross, Calypso, and Mosaic.
On Saturday 10th September 2016 we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary with plenty of Cheddar Ales, food, and live music, 12pm till 12am with afternoon and evening tickets available, including a complimentary drink. Book your tickets here for advanced discounts
