A Norfolk brewery has struck a deal to get its beer onto the shelves of a premium UK grocer.
Woodforde's is brewing an own-label lager for Marks and Spencer, which is now available in stores nationwide.
The product is being supplied by independent beer retailer Real Ale, a supplier to M&S for more than 11 years which finds small producers for its own-label products.
The 5% ABV lager, Woodforde's' first lager product, was developed by head brewer Neil Bain and is being sold as part of a Real Ale own-label collection with two other craft beers and a cider.
The Woodbastwick brewery already produces the M&S own-label beer Norfolk Bitter.
