GARETH BALE’S own brand of beer is set to 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, helped Rob Page’s men to Qatar earlier this year.
And they will now face England, Iran and the USA in the group stage of the World Cup – their first appearance at the tournament since 1958.
As a mark of the historic accomplishment, Welsh supporters will be able to celebrate the games with a glass of Bale Ale or Bale Lager.
Bottles of both will be available in Wales’ Tesco stores for £1.70 from October 3.
National team skipper Bale plans to donate a percentage of the profits from the beers to the development of grassroots football in his home country.
He told PA news agency: “I am really looking forward to launching Bale Ale and Bale Lager into Tesco stores across Wales – it’s something we started a few years ago and to see the brand grow is really exciting.
“Being able to team up and work with Glamorgan Brewing Co, who are based only 10 minutes from my house, makes it even more special and we are extremely proud of what we have created together.
“With this partnership we aim to give something back to Welsh grassroots football, and in particular, we want to help develop football facilities across Wales on a local level.
“We hope fans across Wales will be able to enjoy some Bale Ale and Lager as we head into the World Cup this year.”

It has not yet been confirmed whether or not Bale’s beers will be stocked across other parts of the UK outside of Wales.
But there are plans to export it to California in 2023 – where he is currently playing 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 said to be a “crisp, clean-tasting” drink brewed with Saaz hops.
