If you’re a Real Ale fan, you must take the signposted detour on the Fakenham-Wells road to visit this unique off-licence.
Attached to a bona-fide North Norfolk malting barley farm (so they know their stuff when it comes to malt), The Real Ale Shop offers some 50+ naturally bottle conditioned ales by 15-odd Norfolk Brewers.
Breweries you’ll find represented here read like a Who’s Who of Good Norfolk Ale, including the Fox Brewery, Woodforde’s, the Iceni Brewery, the Humpy Dumpty Brewery and Tipple’s Brewery.
Browse at your leisure or have the friendly staff help with your personal selection.

These include the ‘Birthday Case’ – a special selection of 11 ales plus a beer glass, the Classic Traleblazer Case – containing 12 of the shop’s most popular Norfolk ales and ‘Six of the Best’ – a selection of ales from 6 local breweries.
Open Tues-Sat 10am-6pm (Winter 10am-4pm).
Closed Mondays (except Bank Holidays & high season) – but don’t worry, you can shop online via The Real ale Shop’s website as well.
