Multi-Award Winning Beer Delicatessen to Open in London’s Little Venice

Real Ale, the liquid delicatessen based in Twickenham, will be opening a new store in the heart of North West London, situated in Little Venice, at 4, Formosa Street W9 this summer.


The award-winning shop has established a reputation for offering a wide range of high quality but often unknown, craft beers, ciders and perries produced by smaller breweries in Britain and internationally since it first opened its doors in 2005, as well as over 350 wines from artisan producers.


Real Ale has been championing smaller companies long before it was fashionable to do so, its aim from day one was to bring unusual and interesting beers from microbreweries under one roof; offering consumers more variety and small brewers a market place for their beers.   Plans are already in place to support local breweries including a small batch Pale Ale brewed in collaboration with Moncada Brewery.


Darren Ferris, Sales Manager at Moncada Brewery says: “It’s a great opportunity to work with the team at Real Ale who is such excellent advocates for smaller breweries always giving them a platform.  Now the Real Ale team are our new neighbours, we are delighted to collaborate in brewing a special Formosa Pale Ale to celebrate the launch of the new store”.




“The new venue also includes a seated basement area, ideal for ‘master-class tastings’ and ‘meet the brewer events’.  We will be spoilt for choice in range selection, as over the past couple of years, over sixty craft breweries have opened up in London alone.  We really look forward to becoming as much a part of the community as we are in Twickenham.”


Since 2007 the Company has been an official beer supplier agent to M&S, helping them source a range of branded and own-label ales from regional brewers nationally and have been instrumental in introducing the retailers’ new canned range.


To celebrate the launch of the new shop, Real Ale has also launched a new-look website where browsers can select from an unmatched range of hand-picked beers delivered free within the local area and nationally via courier.  Shoppers can order cases from the team’s recommendations or select their own range of beers, all of which are hard to find elsewhere.  Visit:
