GARETH BALE’S beer brand will hit Welsh supermarkets next week as the country celebrates reaching the World Cup for the first time in 64 years.
The former Tottenham and Real Madrid superstar, 33, inspired Rob Page’s men to Qatar earlier this year.
And they now face England, Iran and the USA in the group stage of the World Cup – their first participation in the tournament since 1958.
As a token of the historic achievement, Welsh fans can celebrate the games with a glass of bale ale or bale lager.
Bottles of both will be available in Tesco stores in Wales from October 3rd for £1.70.
National team skipper Bale plans to donate a percentage of profits from the beers to developing grassroots football in his home country.
He told the PA news agency: “I’m really looking forward to launching Bale Ale and Bale Lager in Tesco stores across Wales – we started this a couple of years ago and it’s really exciting to see the brand growing.
“Having the opportunity to work with Glamorgan Brewing Co, based just 10 minutes from my home, makes it even more special and we are very proud of what we have created together.
“With this partnership we aim to give back to Welsh grassroots football and in particular to help develop football facilities at a local level across Wales.
“We hope fans across Wales can enjoy bale ale and lager as we head out for the World Cup this year.”

It has not yet been confirmed whether or not Bale’s beers will be stored in other parts of the UK outside of Wales.
But there are plans to export him to California in 2023 – where he currently plays his club football for Los Angeles FC.
Bale Ale has been described as a “bright, fresh-tasting, juicy golden brew” made from Goldings, Columbus, and Citra hops.
While Bale Lager is reportedly a “crisp, clean-tasting” beverage brewed with Saaz hops.
