Hobbiton Celebrates a Million Litres of Brew

To celebrate the Million litres of brew that has flowed through the Hobbiton Movie Set’s pipes since it opened in 2012, a new limited-edition ale is being added to the mix.

Teaming up with brewing partner, Good George, Hobbiton has created the aptly named Hobbit Southfarthing Celebration Ale, a one-off to add to its existing range of exclusive Hobbit Southfarthing beverages. It is a traditionally brewed English pale ale to complement the existing amber ale, dark ale, apple cider and non-alcoholic ginger beer.

“This new ale is the perfect way to celebrate this huge milestone and sharing this with customers outside of The Shire is very exciting,” expressed Hobbiton Movie Set deputy CEO Shayne Forrest.

Since Hobbiton opened nine years ago, The Green Dragon Inn has welcomed many thirsty guests through its wooden doors. Now the new brew will give them another reason to drop in. The limited-edition ale is also available by the pint or in bottles from Good George across the North Island.
