Bath Ales is the brewer of a distinctive range of premium, authentic and inventive beers for the discerning drinker. From its west country base, Bath Ales brews a range of consistently superior and well-crafted beers.
Founded in 1995, Bath Ales’ new chapter began in July 2016, when it was acquired by St Austell Brewery – one of only 28 independent, family-owned brewers in the country.
St Austell Brewery, established in 1851 – and one of Cornwall’s oldest businesses – committed to investing in a new brewery at Bath Ales which opened its doors in May 2018.
Fronted by flagship ale Gem, the four-vessel brew house (Hare Brewery) has the capacity to produce more than 50,000 brewers’ barrels of beer –over 14.5 million pints! With 12 new fermenting vessels in place, the south west’s most sophisticated and technologically advanced brewery has doubled the available brewing capacity at Bath Ales.
Bath Ales beers are available in supermarkets nationwide and in pubs across the country. An exciting schedule of new beers have launched alongside the brewery opening, including an IPA – Lansdown – and premium English lager, Sulis – both now available in Tesco stores nationwide.
