A refreshing 3.7% ABV, auburn coloured beer. Badger Best Bitter combines the finest Flagon ale malt with a small amount of crystal malt to give a subtle malt character. The Celeia, Bobek and Dana hops provide a refreshing hop that is both thirst quenching and characterful. The hops are added in the brewhouse and dry hopped later in the brew in fermentation vessel to ensure this beer retains its character to the last drop.
Fursty Ferret’s malt base is a combination of our finest Flagon ale malt alongside a generous helping of crystal malt; lending the beer a moreish biscuit character to the mouthfeel.

The godfather of our beers. Its’ ingredients combine the very finest that the British maritime climate can produce. The Flagon barley is a speciality grown for its quality and low protein. This is combined with our own pure well water. The aroma hops bring together the English varieties of Goldings, First Gold and Challenger. These floral hop notes have a subtle hint of spice that combine with the fruity notes from fermentation to give a light premium ale with reverence. We have gone back to using Challenger hops, their discernible character adds to the flavour and taste.
A true IPA that builds on the tradition of an English IPA but draws inspiration from the bolder IPAs in the US. The hops of Amarillo, Mosaic and Cascade give powerful citrus notes that come to the fore in both the aroma and flavour. Brewed to wow and not disappoint those that crave hop refreshment. The ale malt combines our English Flagon malt with Vienna, Munich and Caramalt that gives this ale its malt character and provides the malt base and stage for the hops to perform.
