The session beer at my local, the Old Farmhouse, is called Badger. I asked for a half of Badger the other day and Gaz, the chef, sitting at at the bar asked, 'Do you want the front half or the back half.' It is, in my opinion, the second best of a bad bunch but the idea that it might be made of real badger is as good an explanation of its taste I have heard.

The Prince of Wales on Ham Hill near Yeovil serves Doom Bar, a Cornish ale (I think), and people have been heard ordering a Pint of Doom. I don't know if that's also a recognised unit in purgatory.
