Twickenham-based beer supplier Nick Dolan has expanded his business and can employ more staff because of an ongoing partnership with retailer Marks and Spencer.

Real Ale ltd has grown since 2007, when M&S stocked the first four Real Ale ltd beers. They now offer a portfolio of 16 specialist beers, including two gluten free options.

Mr Dolan said: "It’s great to supply M&S with its first gluten-free beer.

"We’ve been continuously supported by M&S, who have helped us to grow our business.

"We’ve been able to employ additional people and spend more time sourcing the best quality beers the UK has to offer. We’re really passionate about beer and by understanding what makes a good beverage, we’ve helped to make M&S the beer specialist retailer on the high street."

M&S’s partnership with Real Ale ltd is part of the Plan A initiative to help create a more sustainable future.
