The monument consists of the remains of an industrial building, dating to the 19th century. Kelsterton Brewery consists of a very large ale and porter brewery, which was the first of the kind established in this county, and was erected in the hamlet of Kelsterton, in the year 1818. The impressive remains of vaulted under-crofts, double-skinned stone tanks, and of a weir and associated works survive.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of 18th or 19th century industrial practices. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. An industrial building may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
