From The Wicked Hathern Brewery
The village has been known locally as Wicked Hathern since the 19th century when the Rev. Edward Thomas March Philips, Rector of Hathern for 51 years, fed up with the cock fighting and drunken brawls between the gravestones in the churchyard, referred to the village as "a wicked place and a cage for every unclean beast. I wonder what is to become of it?"
Farmer Mee’s Dark Side 4.8% ABV
A malty ruby ale, with chocolate and liquorice flavours and a bitter finish. The Mee family have farmed in Hathern for almost 100 years
Cockfighter 4.2% ABV
A pale bitter with a pronounced malt influence offset by a delicate hop taste. Cockfighting was one of the sports giving rise to the 'wicked' epithet. Hathern Turn, near the King’s Arms, was the scene of many challenge contests.
Hawthorn Gold 4.5% ABV
A light golden, easy drinking beer with a good balance of hops and malt. The name of Hathern derives from the Saxon word for the hawthorn hedges which surrounded the village in pre-Doomsday times.
Dovecote Porter 4.8% ABV
This rich, dark, traditional beer has a slightly fruity aroma. The substantial aftertaste boasts complex flavours including chocolate, coffee and liquorice.
Hathern Cross 3.7% ABV
Golden ale with an aroma of spicy hops. A balanced and bittersweet taste with a surprising lemon note from the hops, contrasting with malt sweetness. The name comes from the cross in the middle of the village
St George’s Gold 3.8% ABV
This beautiful golden ale has a perfect balance of malt and hops which produce delicious tasting quaffing ale, just what St. George would have wanted as he apparently passed through Hathern on his journey to slay the dragon.
