Mark Banham was the Wine Buyer for a Brewery for over a dozen years, so real ales are very important to us! As ever, we are keen to champion Dorset producers and have three outstanding candidates for Ale & Cider.
Gyle 59 Brewery is located just on the right side of the Devon border in the hills behind Lyme Regis. John Hoskins and Amanda Edwards fashion a wide range of highly flavoured, individual ales which are perfect for vegan and vegetarian consumers.
Vic & Jody of Cerne Abbas Brewery are larger than life characters but producer super ales from the home of the Giant. Gurt Stout is a local favourite. The West Milton Cider Co. is located to the north of Bridport where Nick & Dawn Poole employ traditional varieties and methods to create some of Dorset's best cider.
