Our Beers

The Malt Shovel Inn has 3 traditional real ale pumps with Butcombe beers available on all 3.

Below you’ll find out more about our core ale products, whilst the third pump is reserved for a guest ale.

Butcombe Original 4.0%

Butcombe Original Pump

The beer that changed everything for Butcombe Brewery. After all it was the first beer that the brewery perfected. To illustrate this, it adopted the name “original”.

Made with only the best Maris Otter malt and a blend of English hops, Butcombe Original is the classic session beer.

Butcombe Rare Breed 3.8%

Butcombe Original Pump

Rare Breed is the result of a dedication to sustainable farming. Additionally created through a passion for characterful, artisanal beer.

Similarly to Butcombe Original, only the finest Maris Otter malt is used in Rare Breed. Furthermore aromatic Fuggles hops, Cascade and Amarillo hips and the purest Mendip Spring Water all combine for this beer.

We are then left with a distinctive, clean tasting pale ale with a smooth, citrus twist.

A truly bold, standout beer that’s one of a kind.
