Branthill Farm, Branthill, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, NR23 1SB
“Our shop is located on a classic malting barley farm supplying many local real ale breweries and ensures a real barley-to-beer connection.”The Real Ale Shop is unique because of its location in the beautiful rural setting of a classic North Norfolk malting barley farm which supplies the brewers with malt, their prime ingredient. Our fine ales can therefore be traced directly back to their roots on the farm in North Norfolk which is steeped in a rich malting and brewing heritage.
Bottle conditioned ales have a fresh flavour, full of character and the shop's friendly staff are there to help you with your personal selection. An ale for every occasion from a bottle to an 18 pint beer box!Branthill Farm now has the ‘Barley to Beer' Micro-Maltings adjacent to The Real Ale Shop where the malting process can be clearly seen.
We came across this gorgeous and well stocked shop quite by accident on our way home from Holkham. Situated on a picture book perfect Norfolk farm, customers can look around the Micro Maltings and enjoy an explanation from the knowledgeable Master Brewer and staff.
We spent quite some time looking at the shops stock- there are ales and ciders from regional brewers such as Brancaster, Iceni, Panther and the Ole Slewfoot Brewing Company; the owner will talk you through selections, asking about your palate and accompanying food. Products are available online too.
