RealAleNet - the real ale network

Welcome to RealAleNet, the real ale network. Our raison dtre is primarily to promote Real Ale in the UK, but there is also an element of touching the lives of beer drinkers worldwide.

There are a number of sites that come under the Realalenet umbrella. They include:
  • Realalenet where you are now.
  • Realalenews a gathering of UK real ale news snippets from the interweb.
  • Realaleblog a fanzine for the real ale drinker.
  • Goog-ale The real ale search engine.
Whilst this is predominantly a real ale site, beer in general does get a mention from time to time.

What is real ale?

So exactly what is Real Ale?
Real ale is beer that is brewed using ale yeast, and which undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle or cask in which it is stored. It is a quality living food product made from malted barley, hops, water, yeast and sometimes-other flavouring ingredients like fruit or herbs. It is living because live yeast is still present and the fermentation continues in the vessel it is contained in up to the point at which it is served. The yeast remains in the container as sediment and is not dispensed into the glass. This process ensures that the ale in the glass is a fresh and natural food product.
