18 April 2019

A Cornish-based brewery is raising a glass to a new deal to supply Co-op stores across the county.

The Keltek Cornish Brewery, based in Redruth, is supplying four of its ales to 40 of the Co-op’s food stores across Cornwall from this month (April).

The award winning family-owned brewery – which started producing ale on a 2.5 barrel micro-brewery in 1997 - will see its Magik traditional bitter; Lance golden ale; Even Keel pale ale and, King - a premium bitter, listed with the Co-op.

In a series of celebrations, Keltek Brewery was last month (March) awarded with the SALSA Plus beer standard accreditation – a national accreditation recognised by retailers, and became a Taste of the West Gold Award winner.
