Local family brewers, Hall & Woodhouse, will be running the main bar at this year’s Dorset County Show and has pledged to donate all profits made at the event to charity.
This will be Hall & Woodhouse’s first time at the historic show, which returns next week after a two year break due to the pandemic. All profits made will be split between Dorset County Show’s chosen charities, The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and The Farmer’s Crisis Network (FCN) Dorset.
Hall & Woodhouse will serve a range of its Badger beers, wines, and spirits over the course of the show weekend, which takes place on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September. The Badger Beer Volkswagen will also make an appearance at the show to provide attendees with free samples of Badger, as well as selling some bottled Badger and branded merchandise.
Additionally, free Badger beer and cheese tasting sessions will also be hosted by Hall & Woodhouse’s Family Director, Mark Woodhouse. These sessions will run at 1pm on Saturday 3rd and 12pm Sunday 4th to allow visitors to experience new ways of enjoying their favourite food and Badger beer.
Anthony Woodhouse, Chairman of Hall & Woodhouse, said: “This event celebrates the best of local agriculture, farmers, and producers. As a Dorset business and brewers of our beautiful Badger beer, it is so important that we partner with the show organisers in this way, to help us give back to those who really need it in our community.
“We are excited to be part of this year’s Dorset County Show and spend time with the visitors who are just as passionate as us about supporting our farming community and local producers.”
Nicki Ralph, chair of Dorchester Agricultural Society, added: “We’re delighted the Dorset County Show is back this year with the return of all the major attractions the show is known and loved for, such as cattle and livestock, sheep shearing, vintage tractors, show jumping, shopping, and plenty of good food and drink. Additionally, attractions such as the live music in the Countryside Area, the fun fair, local artisans’ tent, as well as the Fabulous Food and Farming learning zone, make ideal family entertainment.
“We are so thrilled to receive Hall & Woodhouse’s dedication to the show and support for our chosen charities, while sharing its iconic Badger beers with our visitors.”
