Glastonbury Ales Somerton Reviews
Glastonbury's Favourite Real Ale! *brewed in Somerton* Jul 03, 2010
Okay, not exactly a tourist attraction but I wasn't sure what to put a brewery under. Obviously this isn't something you'd travel to England purely for unless you're a serious real ale enthusiast but if you are in the area it's a great little place to pick up some well-known local brews that most people only know of from the annual Glastonbury Music Festival. Little more than a small warehouse on Somerton Trading Estate, this is where it's all brewed packaged up and shipped off to the local pubs in the Somerset area but you can also buy plenty for yourself at the warehouse door.
Golden Chalice (Joint personal favourite)
Black as yer 'At
Lady of the Lake
Spring Loaded (Joint personal favourite)
All can be brought for £1.95 each or a pack of 12 for £20. You can also get a mixed pack of 12 for £22 or you can buy in larger bulks of 24,36 or even a barrel whichs is the most cost effective way. A good mixture of golden ales, dark ales and porters for those who prefer real beer.
If you're nearby visiting attractions in the West Country it's a good place to stop in and get some local ales for yourself. The only thing to remember is they don't take cards as they have no facility for it, only cash or cheque (it is just a big warehouse after all). If you have trouble navigating your way through the trading estate, look for the brightly-coloured Glastonbury Ales van which basically looks like a black and purple version of the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo!
It is Glastonbury-related after all....
