Cellar Head Brewing Co Ltd is an independent, multi award-winning brewery located on the Kent / Sussex border, near to Tunbridge Wells creating a varied range of beer for cask, keg, bottle and can. Using traditional and modern brewing methods, the finest British grown malts, local and international hops and our own house yeast, we produce a range of vibrant beers focused on drinkability and quality.
Cellar Head produces a core range of six beers – our flagship 3.8% Session Pale Ale leads the way, followed by our 4.0% Amber Ale, a 4.0% Session Best, a 4.3% Golden Ale, our 4.6% Single Hop Pale series which changes monthly and a rounding off the line up is our 5.0% India Pale Ale.
Alongside these regularly brewed beers, we also produce seasonal brews throughout the year including green hopped beers and dark stouts.
Having special relationships with local hop farmers, Cellar Head also produce limited, small batch beers from time to time using exceptionally rare or trial hops, usually less than 300 bottles or even just a single cask. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
At Cellar Head we produce cask conditioned and bottle conditioned natural, unfined beer.
Traditionally, fining agents are used to produce perfectly clear beer using Isinglass, a substance obtained from the dried swim bladders of fish. Yes, fish! But as well as helping the yeast to settle to the bottom of the cask/bottle, the finings also take hop oils with it, thereby stripping some of the flavour and aromas - something we of course want to avoid. By choosing not to add finings to our beers, they carry a natural haze and are also vegan friendly. Additionally we do not filter or pasteurise our beers to get the most flavour out of our brews.
Our bottled beers all undergo a natural secondary fermentation in the bottle; no priming or forced carbonation, which results in a light fizz that we feel is a more refined texture and mouthfeel. The beer is alive – unfiltered, unfined and unpasteurised and therefore does leave some yeast sediment in the bottom, so the beers will need a little time to settle before pouring in one motion if you want to leave it in the bottle!
Our spent malt is fed to local cattle and the used hops spread on neighbour’s gardens to compost!
