Summer’s Here Courtesy of Bath Ales

Independent brewery Bath Ales is set to release its popular seasonal ale at the beginning of May, marking the start of summer for beer lovers across the UK.


Summer’s Hare, the popular Bath Ales brew will hit pumps in pubs across the South West from 1st May. This ale has a light, hoppy flavour, perfect to be enjoyed on a summer evening.

 A light amber seasonal beer, Summer’s Hare has been brewed using the finest pale Maris Otter floor-malted barley as well as a transatlantic mix of Bramling Cross and Chinook hops combined to make a well-balanced, fruity beer.

 Commenting on the seasonal release, head brewer Gerry Condell, said: “Summer’s Hare has been designed with warm evenings and alfresco dining in mind. The beer has a summer fruits aroma with spicy notes and is the perfect match for a light dishes such as ploughman’s, quiches and mild cheeses.

Summer’s Hare can be found in all Bath Ales pubs and selected other pubs until August.
