Pest Control

The Simulium posticatum is a small, black biting fly which inhabits River Stour at Blandford. The female requires blood before laying eggs, and prefers to bite dogs and humans– women are bitten more than men.

Fitting then that Badger should do this femme beer, adding the folk cure for Blandflord fly bites– ginger– into the brew. With a delightfully homeopathic logic the beer has it’s own “bite.”

And I do love it– candied ginger in the nose with a ginger bread middle and clean finish.

Eats: chipotle-glazed grilled halloumi
