BUTCOMBE brewery has teamed up with a TV presenter to launch a new brand of real ale.

Adam Henson, who co-presented BBC’s Lambing Live and runs a farm in the Cotswolds, worked alongside brewers to ensure the finest West Country ingredients came together for a unique blend.

The new ale, called Rare Breed, was officially launched during a special event at Bristol Airport, where bars are already selling the new brew.

Guy Newell, Butcombe’s managing director said: “Rare Breed is a great beer both on draught and in bottle. We are really pleased that travellers from all over the world can now have a taste of what’s best in our region, before even leaving the airport.”
