Tasting Events


Each month, we hold a tasting evening at our shop in East Twickenham, where we invite a brewer, a wine producer or cider producer to talk through their amazing creations.

Tastings normally start at 6pm, and are generally free to attend. To join our mailing list please email tim@realale.com

AnspachIn-store tasting - Anspach & Hobday
Thursday 9th March, 7pm-9pm

The next in-store tasting will be with Bermondsey brewers and long term friends of the shop, Anspach & Hobday. Tim, store manager, recently visited the arches to brew a beer with Dan, Paul & Dylan at A&H.  Join us to sample the fruits of their labours. 

The brewery team (including brewer Dan, who used to work at Real Ale, will be with us on the night to give history and context to the beers and how they fit in with London brewing traditions. One of the beers available will be The Three Threads, a wonderfully malty London porter based on a19th century recipe. We will also have lovely keg beer flowing all night for people to enjoy on site, plus a wide array of bottle samples from the Brewery’s Experimental Range.

Private Beer Tasting and Masterclasses
We have been running private beer tasting masterclasses since 2005 collaborating with the best beer writers and commentators in the business.  The events involve beer and food matching, getting the most out of the flavour of the beer, learning a little of the history, as well as myth busting and trivia.
