AFTER a huge success last summer, Badger Beer's Old Harry's Pale Sail, which is brewed in Dorset, is back for 2019.

The refreshing auburn pale ale, bursting with floral and citrus aromas, will be available in selected Hall & Woodhouse pubs across the south of England from the beginning of August until the autumn.

The beverage, brewed at Hall & Woodhouse in Blandford, mixes Goldings, Jester and Amarillo hops with Flagon, Crystal and Munich malts, creating a deliciously thirst-quenching ale which is perfect for the warmer months.

Sarah Pace, brand manager for Badger Beer, says: “We are delighted that Old Harry’s Pale Sail is returning for the summer months, following its phenomenal success last summer. Old Harry’s Pale Sail is inspired by Old Harry Rocks, which is an iconic set of rocks along Dorset’s Jurassic coast. All sorts of legends surround the rocks, most notably about an infamous pirate named Harry Paye, whose ship is said to have hidden behind the rocks awaiting passing merchantmen, and after whom they are named.

“The refreshing ale is available from this month across 140 of our public houses in the south of England. With its floral aromas and light hop notes, it works extremely well as a refreshing, summer ale both on its own and as an accompaniment to food.”

Badger Beer has been brewed in the heart of the Dorset countryside since 1777 by the family-owned independent brewer, Hall & Woodhouse. Hall & Woodhouse is well known for its range of award-winning beer and its network of public houses throughout the South of England. The brewery is now managed by the seventh generation of the Woodhouse family.

Other beers brewed under the Badger brand include The Legendary Tangle Foot and The Fursty Ferret, available exclusively in Hall & Woodhouse pubs across the south or to buy in 500ml cans. Golden Champion, Hopping Hare, The Cranborne Poacher and The Blandford Fly are available in 500ml glass bottles.
