Bath Ales is Raring to Go This Easter

Bath Ales Hare

Independent brewer, Bath Ales has re-introduced its ‘occasional’ cask ale, Rare Hare, just in time for the Easter holidays.

A smooth premium beer that is full in flavour and dry and clean on the palate, Rare Hare makes unscheduled appearances in the Bath Ales’ brewing calendar and is only available in limited quantities.

The chestnut beer offers cask lovers a dry, bitter taste with a hint of caramel and an aroma that is topped off with toffee notes.

Commenting on the beer head brewer, Gerry Condell, said: “We have worked hard to create a supremely smooth, premium beer that our customers seek out. It’s been a popular choice in the past and we hope they’ll enjoy this special 2012 brew, while it’s available.”

Rare Hare (5.2% ABV) is available on draught in pubs and bars and in 500ml bottles on the Bath Ales website,, from April until stocks last.
