EVERCREECH’S Wild Beer Co will be taking some of their ales to Brussels at the request of the European Parliamentary Beer Group.
The brewers, along with Ashcott’s Ordnance City Brewery, are among a group of brewers from the region who are set to represent the south west at the Members of European Parliament (MEP)’s Christmas conference.
