Badger Ales

Our local corners shop has, much to my sheer delight, started stocking bottles real ales. Sampled three different ones from the Badger Brewery last weekend:

Golden Champion
Hoppy Hare
Fursty Ferret

All three are excellent tasting thirst quenchers. Very nice if you are cooking a hot curry. Think I may have seen them for sale in Morrisons as well. That is all!
Grind

Are they from Hampshire/Dorset?

I seem to remember a few pubs tied to Badger when I lived there.

Have you been in The Hummingbird ( think that's what it's called) in CA, they have Kirkstall Pale Ale on at the moment.

Not heard of the beer Fozdyke, but will give it a try. I have been in The Hummingbird. Me and she-who-must-be-obeyed were out for a couple of glasses of pop in Chapel Allerton and it happened to be the night it was opening. Went in for a reccy. I thought it was fucking shit. As it was when it was called The Angels Share (Kin' stupid name). It was like a cramped showroom for retro furniture. And to top it all, all the people who were in the outside bit on this showcase night were getting soaked due to the cheap and nasty plastic roofing that was leaking through on them. Won't be off in again. All I need in Chapel Allerton is Seven Bar, The Three Hulats, and The Regent.

Know what you mean about the seating, it took an age to get served with all the bar staff making cocktails, but I just like how they are supporting a local brewery. Nice pint but not cheap.

Ace name for a Brewery though.

When I was 16 or 17, I led a 50 mile jaunt around Salisbury Plain as part of the Queen's Scout award (stop tittering at the back, you oiks).

I have many memories of the trip, including discovering that Porton Down did not appear on the OS map (a large site, complete with a railway line running through it, which according to the map did not exist, and confused the heck out of us).

The first time I came across Badger beers was when we stopped one lunch-time at a remote pub. The landlord took the precaution of checking that we were of legal age via some tough questioning - "Are you sure you boys are old enough?" When we assured him that we were, it was Badger beers all round, which brightened up an already sunny day.

Kin' ell! Fifty miles?
