Cottage Brewing Company


Rail Ales

The Cottage Brewery’s Rail Ales are available all year.

While making steady growth progress over the years, care has always been taken to ensure that the quality of the ales has been retained. The brewery has a large portfolio of award winning ales, all of which are brewed with interesting and prominent hop aromas. The brewery has a reputation for not sparing it’s hops!

Based in the heart of rural Somerset, The Cottage Brewing Company was founded in 1993 by Chris and Helen Norman.

The Cottage Brewing Company has a reputation for producing beers of the very highest quality, and has won gold medals at beer festivals all over the country, including Taste of the West, Supreme Champion for the South West of England and Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Supreme Champion Beer of Great Britain for its strong ale, Norman’s Conquest.

All beers have a very distinctive hoppy flavour and nose, which is appreciated by connoisseurs of traditional real ales.  The malt is sourced, where possible, in the South West of England and only the finest Maris Otter pale malt is used, together with Crystal, Chocolate and Cara to form the grists.  The brewery’s yeast strain provides excellent condition, while quickly dropping to give crystal clear bright beers.
