Dorset family brewer Badger Beers is celebrating a new round of honours, with three of its beers winning medals at the World Beer Awards.
Judges recognised both established ales and recent innovation from Badger. This autumn will see Milk Made stout available in keg. There will also be a return in cask for winter ale Red Roaster.
World Beer Awards medals went to:
- Golden Glory, which won gold in the flavoured beer, fruit, category. Golden Glory is a 4.5% ABV peach flavoured golden ale with refreshing fruity and flora notes. It is available in 500ml bottles.
- Milk Made, which won silver in the flavoured stout and porter category. Launched in 2020 as part of Badger’s innovation programme, Milk Made is a 5.2% ABV stout with layers of chocolate, vanilla, and coconut. It is available in 500ml bottles and 440ml cans.
- The Blandford Fly, which was awarded bronze in the flavoured beer, herb and spice, category. One of Badger’s best-known beers, The Blandford Fly is a 5.2% ABV sweet and spicy golden ale with a refreshing ginger taste, offset with hints of sweet toffee. It is available in 500ml bottles.
Giles Mountford, drinks marketing manager at Badger Beers, said: “We’re delighted with these latest accolades, which build on a series of awards for our beer range, notably in the International Brewing Awards 2021.
“We continue to develop new, contemporary, and innovative craft beers, such a Milk Made, which complement our established strength as a brewer of fine traditional bottled and cask ales.
“Our brewing team has plenty more innovation in the pipeline, and so we’re looking forward to having to install an even bigger trophy cabinet in the brewery at Blandford St Mary in due course.”
