We normally keep four Real Ales on at any one time. Our “King George The Thirst” and “George and the Dragon” are brewed exclusively for us by Blindman’s Brewery in Leighton, just five miles outside of Shepton Mallet. They use Mendip spring water, Warminster malt and some Canadian Chinook hops for extra zest. These are our most popular beers and are always available.
We keep up to three other local and national guest ales on as well. These may include beers from Butcombe, Bath Ales, Cheddar Ales, Moor, Glastonbury, Arbor Ales, Plain Ales, Hopback, Milk Street, Dawkins, Cotleigh, Exmoor, Cottage and St Austell, amongst others.
We serve four or more local ciders. Our two best selling ciders are from Thatchers just 15 miles away. Mallets cider is made in Shepton Mallet by Brothers Cider of GlastonburyFestival fame, The Stone’s Family Cider is produced in Shepton Mallet two miles away, Worley’s cider produced in Dean about six miles away and Heck’s cider produced in Street, 10 miles away.
We are especially pleased to serve the cider produced only two miles away by cidermaker, author, drinker and ‘expert’ Alan Stone. Alan can sometimes be found at the bar and will be happy to tell you more about it!
