Shangri-Lager Now Available!

Our Collaboration with River Cottage


As you may (or may not) know, we have had the pleasure of working with River Cottage and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on a collaboration for the past few years – the fantastic Shangri-Lager! So good in fact, we’ve now made it available for you to buy through our web shop!


So what is it?

Combining the brewing expertise of Freedom and the organic heritage of River Cottage we created this deliciously drinkable, organic lager, with a crystal clear, crisp taste and an ABV of 4.6%. It’s an enduringly hoppy and harmonious beer – so that’s why we called it Shangri-Lager!

Savour the delicate flavours of River Cottage and Freedom Brewery’s refreshing collaboration, enjoy the floral notes on a hot summer’s day and be whisked away to paradise…


Hugh loves it, and so will you!

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall established River Cottage in 2004, after the success of his iconic Channel 4 programme Escape to River Cottage. A fixture on the British food scene, the River Cottage team are passionate about food integrity and promoting local, organic and sustainable produce – the perfect partner for Freedom!

A quote from Hugh himself – “I really enjoy drinking great organic beer, and just like any recipe, I know that the best ingredients always give the most delicious results. That’s why we partnered with Freedom to create our River Cottage Organic Shangri-Lager.”

I also love Freedom’s commitment to the environment, such as their natural willow bed water treatment process and energy efficient brewing technology. It’s a happy and harmonious blend of sustainable brewing and brilliant beer know-how. And that’s why we’ve called our fantastic collaborative brew Shangri-Lager!”
