Wild Hare, the distinctive golden ale produced by local brewer Bath Ales at their site in Warmley, has been officially certified as a gluten-free product by Coeliac UK.
The neck label on Wild Hare bottles, which are available in Waitrose stores nationwide, now features the Crossed Grain symbol.
Promoted by coeliac organisations worldwide, the symbol is internationally recognised and trusted by those who need to follow a gluten-free diet – those with coeliac disease or an intolerance to gluten.
Wild Hare is a classic British pale ale, made using English-grown First Gold hops.
Georgina Young, Bath Ales’ new Head Brewer said: “We test every batch of Wild Hare for traces of gluten straight after fermentation and before dispatching it to supermarkets.
“An estimated one in ten people avoid gluten in the UK, so we’re delighted to be expanding our portfolio and creating a beer that everybody is able to enjoy.”
Wild Hare is now available from Waitrose stores nationwide, and select supermarkets throughout the South West, including Asda, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Majestic, Spar, Co-Op, McColls and Tesco.
