Drinks Retailing Award winner wins beer listing with M&S

23 June, 2015

Twickenham specialist Real Ale has won a listing with Marks & Spencer for one of its own beers.

The independent retailer launched its own range of beers in May to coincide with its 10th anniversary, starting with a 4.2% abv beer called Ubiquitous, a collaboration with Derbyshire-based Buxton Brewery.

Real Ale is already involved in sourcing beers for M&S’s own beer range and has now seen its own beer given a listing in 71 stores in London.

Founder and director Nick Dolan said: “To be listed in M&S with our first own-label brand is fantastic news for us and the team at Buxton Brewery. 

“Having Ubiquitous listed in such high profile M&S stores in and around London will give this fabulous beer the profile it deserves.”

Real Ale is a serial winner of the independent beer retailer prize in OLN's Drinks Retailing Awards.
