If there’s one thing Keltek Brewery are passionate about, it’s Cornwall’s heritage. The brewery do everything they can to promote the county of Cornwall and celebrate the historic tale of King Arthur through their beers. Producing everything by hand, Keltek Brewery use whole hop flowers in the brewing process which is hand-mixed with other ingredients.
Starting with a humble beginning, Keltek brewery first came to life in a small stable and was founded by Stuart Heath as a hobby. However after the success and popular demand of their beers with various awards, the brewery developed even further and is now one of the largest in the South West.
The next step was a move to Lostwithiel for a larger capacity to work with and continual expansion of the traditional family business. In 2007 Keltek eventually moved to their current base in Redruth where they now have the space to produce over 250 barrels a week. Everything is done in-house from the bottling facilities, to the labels and beer. Keltek also became only the second brewery to own a collection of public houses in 2013.
Keltek derives its name from the word ‘Celtic’ in the Cornish language and is representative of the ancient tribes in Cornwall. Founder Stuart Heath discovered the brewing world through his passion of beer and pubs and became inspired in 1997 after a bet with his local landlord.
Keltek Brewery’s outstanding ales are produced by hand using the very best hop flowers, malts and yeast.
Lance is golden, refreshing and easy drinking. Pale and fruity with a citrus bias, this is a CAMRA Champion Cornish ale.
A strong but well balanced winter warmer. Full bodied sweet malt combined with balanced resinous hop and a bitter linger make this a great fireside relaxer. Kick back with the logs burning, the lights off and a full glass in front of you!
