Recognition for Badger Beer in 2020 World Beer Awards

September 2020

Badger Beer receives five accolades in the 2020 World Beer Awards, celebrating the brand’s well-loved taste which originates back to 1777.

The World Beer Awards select the very best in all internationally recognised beer styles through a prestigious tasting and judging process.

Locally brewed, Badger Beer, has been announced as the UK country winner for ‘The Golden Champion’ in the Pale Beer category at the 2020 World Beer Awards.

Four other beers by the Blandford-based brewer have also been recognised for great taste. ‘Twice Tangled’ was awarded silver in the IPA category while ‘The Cranborne Poacher’ took home bronze in the Flavoured category. ‘The Blandford Fly’ ale achieved bronze in the Favoured Herb and Spice category, and one of the brewer’s most historic beers, ‘The Fursty Ferret’, was also awarded bronze in the Pale Beer category.

Toby Heasman, Head Brewer at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “We are delighted to see so many of our beers recognised in this year’s World Beer Awards, notably ‘The Golden Champion’ has been nationally celebrated as being among some of the UK’s best beers.

“As we approach our 250th anniversary as a brewer, it’s encouraging to see Badger Beer continuing to be recognised for its great tasting pints. Expertise and knowledge of the brewing craft has been passed through the Woodhouse family from generation to generation, and these awards are testament to the dedication to quality that is shown by the entire Hall & Woodhouse team.”
