The long awaited StubbleStag premium lager is back and joined by a new Norfolk sister lager called DewHopper, slightly lighter but no less tasty.

After opening last year and brewing our first batch of StubbleStag we were delighted at its popularity – with some drinkers being surprised that it was a lager with serious taste.

As soon as we were able, we got a second brew underway. It can’t be rushed as we sampled and checked along the way in a brewing process lasting several weeks during which the taste and flavours develop. At the same time we created DewHopper, following the same length of process, but creating a lager with a lighter taste.

StubbleStag Premium lager 5% – pours to a medium gold colour, with a hoppy bitterness and a crisp finish. Brewed with malt from the finest Maris Otter barley and five hops: Challenger, Goldings, Hallertau, Saaz and Styrian Goldings.

DewHopper Norfolk lager 3.8% – pours to a light gold colour with a crisp, hoppy finish. Brewed with malt from the finest Maris Otter barley and three hops: Hallertau, Saaz and Styrian Goldings.

If you are a follower of StubbleStag or want to give it or DewHopper a try for the first time, it’s now available in 500ml bottles from some of the outlets shown on our web site It will also be available at the markets and fairs we are going along to this year

For those who want to try StubbleStag on draught, pop along to The King’s Head in Holt where you can also enjoy King’s Head Gold, another lager brewed by us for the pub.

We hope it’s been worth the wait?
