REAL ales are often overlooked in a county famous for its cider, but the hampers bring to light an undiscovered taste using bottles hand-picked from breweries in Wiveliscombe, Stocklinch and Evercreech.

Sally Campbell, who is behind the initiative said: “I know that in Somerset there are some really wonderful small breweries which produce the most fantastic real ales.

“I wanted to highlight this fact and raise awareness of the producers who really do offer something unique.”

The hampers are available from mas-Hampers.aspx
