Blandford Fly is the name of a beer brewed by the Badger Brewery in Blandford St. Mary, Dorset, England. The beer is brewed with ginger; when served cold this gives the brew a refreshing tartness, but is yet at the same time warming. At 5.2% by volume alcohol, it has a surprisingly subtle and complex taste, but should not be taken lightly!
The beer takes it's name from the fact that ginger is supposed to be the best remedy for the symptoms caused by a biting fly found on the river Stour, near Blandford.
