A new microbrewery in Cheddar required a trendy, yet traditional looking web presence to promote and sell their new ales.
As part of our services, we visited the brewery to photograph the products and stages of the brewing process. Returning with a large amount of imagery and a copy of the company brand & logo, we set about designing a site which complimented the existing brand, but also portrayed the principles of the company and would be inviting to all visitors.
As well as a fully integrated e-commerce system, Cheddar Ales features many innovative technologies, such as a Flash gallery showing the stages of the brewing process and an innovative online stockist search, where visitors may enter a post code or place name and be instantly presented with a map of the locations of all nearby stockists of Cheddar Ales products, including pubs, restaurants and resellers.
The store, stockist search database and site content are all maintained via an online management system.
