PROUD TO BE ENGLISH – New-look St George & the Dragon is the perfect patriotic pint


There’s not one but two excellent reasons for pubs to be proud to be English this April 23rd. Not only is this the day when we will be flying the flag for our national patron saint, but it is also when we will mark the 400th anniversary of the death of perhaps England’s most famous son, William Shakespeare, who died on this day in 1616.


And the perfect pint to grace the bar on this auspicious day is Wadworth’s St George & the Dragon. Sporting a new look pump clip, this popular seasonal ale is thoroughly English and proud of it. It will be available in pubs throughout April in readiness for St George’s Day.


“Wadworth’s St George & the Dragon is English through and through – a traditional bitter lovingly brewed with English hops in the heart of the South West of England,” says Ellie Alderton, Wadworth Beer Category Marketing Manager.


“This year, along with the rest of Wadworth’s seasonal beers, it has been given a facelift. Still featuring the knight in shining armour slaying the dragon, the new pump clip conveys the craft, heritage and premium quality of the ale. St George & the Dragon will be available across our managed and tenanted estate and to our national account and free trade customers including Molson Corrs, Heineken and Enterprise.”


Despite its new look, St George & the Dragon is the same popular refreshing, biscuity beer that it has always been. Thoroughly traditional with a crisp and tangy palate, it has hints of orange and blackcurrant  and an easy drinking 4.5% abv.
