Directors 4.8%



This premium cask ale has a strong following throughout the country.

Courage Directors was originally brewed exclusively for the Directors of the Alton brewery, but following public demand, the beer was made available to the public.

It is genuine premium beer, pale brown in appearance with a deep rich taste.


Wells Brewery

Bombardier Pale Ale 3.6%


Our choice of New World hops and high quality pale malt deliver more flavour than any of its contemporary

in an accessible and balanced classic English beer.

A compelling new 3.6% Pale Ale from Bombardier will appeal to mainstream drinkers wanting to experience

some of the flavours of ‘New Pale Ale’ with the subtlety and familiarity of cask.
