Bring back the original Stags snakebites

Stags have recently changed their snakebite recipe. They used to be made with Schweppes cordial, Thatchers cider and Budweiser beer and were a popular choice among the lifesaving society. Now they are made with watery cordial from the gun with stags larger and are now very unpopular. I have also heard from many others that the new recipe is unpopular. We should bring back the original blackcurrant cordial and Budweiser in the snakebites. The original cordial and Budweiser were both available on Tuesday and I was refused them in the drink.
Another question is where is the Stags larger from as it does not seem good quality? If this is a rebranding of wolf pack larger have the white label legal rights been obtained? Many thanks

Hi Samuel,

Thank you for your submission!

I have spoken to our Stag's manager and he has said the below.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback on the snake bite beer drink. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience caused about the snakebite recipe. Budweiser were not supposed to be used in the first place and if that was the case, we do apologise for the error. If we were to use Budweiser, the price of snakebite would be higher I am afraid.

In response to your concern regarding the rebranding of the beer, we would like to clarify that we have the legal rights to do so. It is not Wolfpack what we have rebranded but Belhaven. 

Once again, we apologize for any frustration or inconvenience this may have caused you. We value your feedback and appreciate your continued support of our brand. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

I hope this answers your query. If you have any other concerns please feel free to make another submission or reach out to me directly at

All the best,

Oliver Murray
