Badger launches summer beers

10 April, 2009

Hall & Woodhouse is set to launch two new beers and a cider under the Badger ales brand.

Dandelion organic ale has been designed to be a partner to Stinger organic ale which could be sold in supermarkets.

Stinger, developed with celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, is only sold in pubs and independent off-licences.

Brands marketing manager Rick Payne said: "We wanted to add another organic beer to the range. It will go into Sainsbury's nationally on May 24."

A lemon grass ale is also in the pipeline. It will be the brewer's

Hall & Woodhouse is also introducing a pear cider to partner its Applewood Cider. Pearwood Cider is being developed by Thatchers, which makes Applewood.

"It is going to be a very good cider, almost certainly with 100% English Conference pears rather than an apple mix," said Payne.
