• Our Beers

    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.

  • Buy our ales

    Our beers are available direct from the brewery or through our online shop. We sell both draught and bottle conditioned beer and have a variety of sizes to suit all.


Take the leap...

Headlining the 2013 Good Bottled Beer Guide, Goat`s Leap is a strong, hoppy IPA brimming with flavour.

Beer with food

All of our beers are not only wonderful to drink in their own right but can be matched with various foods for different occasions.
