Re: Real ale in France

Re availability of British ale - it depends very much where you are in France.  In some areas where there are largish British populations and/or high numbers of British visitors, the supermarkets stock a small range of British bottle beers - sometimes intermittently.


Here in deepest Ardeche there are none.  To be honest, even if there were, I doubt I would buy much.

Re: Real ale in France

Thanks Andy

Thinking of selling online, so locality wouldn't be too important.

I'm interested in demand though, so your last comment is useful.

Re: Real ale in France

Well, almost 3 years later and I've done it!!

We moved to Lot-et-Garonne in December 2015, concentrated on setting up our gîte and have now launched the beer business.

Far from selling online, the focus has turned out to be wholesale to bars, restaurants and shops, supported by retail sales from my own shop and at night markets and other events.

The project has received a very warm welcome from suppliers and potential customers and I currently stock 21 different beers from 3 breweries - Adnams, Black Sheep and Hook Norton.

PS - I understand Bastide Brewery in Eymet is still going strong and the quality and consistency of the beers has improved - must pay him a visit soon!
