There's more to a Badger beer.

Wherever you’re enjoying a tasty Badger beer, it’s always special. But there’s something even more wonderful about having one at the home of Badger beers – the independent, family-owned Hall & Woodhouse brewery in Dorset.


The aroma of the hops. The taste of the malts. The unique inner-workings. And hearing first-hand the craft, expertise and legendary stories behind our characterful beers.

Brewery Shop

Following your tour, you might like to visit our onsite Brewery Shop which stocks our wide range of Badger Beers.

Each of our beers is inspired by the beautiful county we call home – Dorset. Be it a mythical legend, a colourful tale or the stunning countryside that surrounds our riverside brewery, there is something for everyone.

The Brewery shop also stocks our latest Limited Edition ales as well as a unique collection of Badger merchandise.

Important stuff

  • Little treasures over 10 are welcome, but anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • We don’t want you falling over in the brewery (what would people think), so please wear sensible footwear (no open-toed shoes or heels).
  • The maximum group for a brewery tour is 20, please book to avoid disappointment. Nobody wants to see you crying into your beer while everyone else goes off to enjoy the tour.
  • Please arrive at the Brewery Shop 10 minutes prior to the Brewery Tour to sign in and receive your tickets.
  • Disabled access is available to the Brewery Tap and Brewery Shop, but unfortunately not for the whole brewery tour.
  • Payments made for tours online are non-refundable.


Our brewery tours include an overview of our 200-year journey, a tour of our state-of-the-art brewery (installed in 2012), and a flight of beers at the end.


Our brewery experience includes all of the above, plus an expert tasting of our award-winning beer collection to finish off the tour.
