Located on the edge of Cheddar village, near the famous Cheddar Gorge, Cheddar Ales began its artisan brewing activities in October 2006. With a weekly brewing capacity of around 30,000, handcrafting relatively small volumes ensure that Cheddar Ales can concentrate on the character, consistency and quality that lie at the heart of all their beers. Brewed to help celebrate a momentous summer for the UK: celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, supporting the England football team in the European Championships and last but not least, Team GB in the Olympics. Crown and Glory has been brewed with a blend of English Pale Ale, Crystal and Cara malts with a little bit of added wheat. This has been infused with a concoction of Simcoe, Cascade, Bramling Cross and Savinjski Golding hops, giving the beer a hop nose. Crown and Glory is a medium bodied beer with a hint of sweetness which balances against the hops whilst allowing the malt flavours to shine through.
