Craft Beers, commonly known as Real Ales have been produced in Britain for Centuries but in recent years have experienced a significant revival with the number of independently owned breweries increasing almost weekly, as customers go in search of varying and exciting new tastes.

Real Ale is a beer brewed from traditional ingredients ( malted barley, hops water and yeast), matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide.

Real Ale in a bottle is the next best thing and the bottled equivalent to the draught real ales you can enjoy at the pub. The technical term for real ale in a bottle is bottle -conditioned and this is what appears on most bottled real ales.

There is a huge range of different beer styles, each with different qualities, tastes and strengths, but each falls into one ot two main categories : ale or lager, the key difference between ales and lagers is the type of fermentation. Lagers are made using bottom-fermenting yeast and Ales which include bitters, milds, stouts, porters, barley wines, golden ales and old ales , use top-fermenting yeast.
