The Hobbiton Green Dragon Inn

Celebrating One Million Litres

New Limited Edition 'Celebration Ale' now available! 

Since opening in 2012, The Green Dragon Inn has welcomed many thirsty patrons through its masterfully carved wooden doors, and this month will celebrate pouring its millionth litre of a Hobbit Southfarthing beverages.

To mark the milestone, we have teamed up with Good George Brewing to create a limited edition, one-off, traditionally brewed English Pale Ale to complement the current range of beverages. The new 'Celebration Ale' is now available for a limited time fresh from the barrels of The Green Dragon Inn, in bottles from The Shire's Rest retail shop, and, for the first time ever, for customers to enjoy from participating Good George establishments across the North Island.
