Brewery’s three cheers to stores’ local label
A BREWERY is toasting a tie-in with the East of England Co-op as a study revealed the number of drinkers trying real ale has gone up by 40%.
Nethergate Brewery has produced three ales which are set to appear under the Co-op’s new ‘Sourced Locally’ label.
The three ales, brewed exclusively for the Co-op in Pentlow, near Clare, will be available in all its supermarkets and food stores across East Anglia from August 8.
The three ales, Golden, Ruby and Dark, will retail at �1.89.
The Dark and Ruby Ales have previously been brewed by Nethergate, but the Gold Ale is new.
