Smile Real Ale

We were watching a late night Galician TV program a few weeks back and there was an interview with a man living in A Coruna who makes real ale,we are assuming it was for sale as it was a professional set up with a small bottling plant and labeled bottles, the name on the beer was 'Druida' Has anyone come across this beer and knows where to buy it?

They've got a facebook page, druida cerveza artesanal (or cerveza druida artesanal, memory's hopeless) but facebook doesn't work well for me so I know no more than that. Had a nice pint or three of Adnams at the weekend, though!

Now a title like this makes me sit up.

Tried Innis & Gunn Orignal, IMHO It's up there with the great tasting ales.

We are, as we speak building a Nanno Brewrey in Sweden (or rather I'm buying/making all the equipment and sending it over to the head brewer)

I've not had real ale in years, what a terrific find, I must try and get hold of some and see what my Spanish OH thinks to it, most likely along the same lines as when I gave some Tetleys' bitter ro try but it was an amusing face my OH pulled.

Tetleys & real ale never used to go in the same sentence, never mind the same thread!

I think the facebook entry is for an Argentinean brand.

(as is most of the information I found on the internet.)

What Programme did you see it on? I will then have a look for the clip on TV Galicia.

I think I'd get lynched back home for saying them in the same sentence.
