Real Ale specialises in beers, natural wines, ciders and interesting spirits from small independent producers from all over the world. All stock is selected by the Real Ale team and is individual to each shop.

To mark the anniversary, Real Ale has teamed up with local Kingston Brewery, Park Brewery to create a collaboration Beer available across all three stores throughout May.

Nick Dolan Real Ale Owner said: “It’s a great achievement to be celebrating our 14 year anniversary- a double bubble year of celebrations as we hit this important milestone and also open our third shop and taproom in Notting Hill.  The industry has changed so much since I first conceived the idea in 2005.  With the growth of natural wines and the broad range of craft spirit producers, there hasn’t been a better time to celebrate those that we help to support and introduce to our customers.  This is a very exciting time for the industry and I am truly grateful to our team of passionate staff who have helped us get this far.”

May is also Real Wine month. As stockists of some of the best available natural wines, Real Ale Maida Vale and Notting Hill shops will be offering a number of natural wines by the glass throughout May, Petr Korab St Laurent, Balazu Des Vaussieres Vin Libre and Loxarel Cora to name a few. The Notting Hill shop will also be hosting a wine tasting with Les Caves de Pyrene on 23rd May from 6pm.
