Beers from Kennet & Avon Brewery at the 2018 YBF

Kennet & Avon Brewery Ltd began brewing and selling beer in March 2013, initially in cask only with bottles following in June 2013. Our beer is brewed at our site in Melksham and also by Chaz Hobden at Wessex Brewery using his spare capacity. The beers take their names from places and people uniquely linked to the Kennet & Avon Canal which runs between Bath in Somerset and Reading in Berkshire.
We have a Craft beer shop and Tap Room at the Brewery in Melksham.

ABV 4.0% Golden Ale

A very pale quaffable session ale. Easy to drink with a hoppy flavour without being too complex and just the right amount of bitterness. Great to drink all year round but particularly refreshing in the summer.
