Real ale, a term coined by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) in 1973 for a type of beer which is brewed "from traditional ingredients, matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide". This definition came from CAMRA's attempt to fight back at the sweeping movement toward mass market beer production.
As the beer industry evolves, the term Real Ale and its definition has been challenged vigorously. However, whether you agree or disagree with the definition, Real Ale, became the benchmark for great beer and brewers continue to brew excellent tasting bottle conditioned (as we call them) ales and we are proud to stock a large variety for our customers to choose from.
For best results you can serve slightly chilled or at room temperature and always pour slowly from the bottle into the glass.
