About Us

Gordon Edwards opened Shed Ales, the brewery based in a shed in the back garden in the village of Pewsey Wiltshire, in March 2012.

I operate a one barrel stainless steel installation, fabricated, supplied and fitted by Elite Stainless Fabrications of Swindon.

I started brewing beer as soon as i was old enough to drink it (apparently!) and progressed to whole grain brewing about 18 years ago with various containers around the kitchen, as you can see it was quite a crude set up in those days.

As the brewing progressed & my experience grew so did the equipment. My first stainless steel brewery was installed in 2010 with a 10 gallon capacity.

Early in 2012 a new 1BBL (36 gallon) brewery was installed in preparation for commercial ale production in March that year.

We now supply several pubs, as well as brew an exclusive ‘house ale’ for a pub in the local area. You will also see our beers at various festivals around Wiltshire & bordering counties.
