2018 YEAR IN BEER
Seasonal ales from the East Kent Coast
First brewed for the 5th Planet Thanet Ale Festival in
2010, this deeply hoppy traditional lagerale makes a another welcome return at last. Flashy continental
malts and bucketfuls of grassy, spicy Noble hops.
JAN - FEB
This sturdy dark porter is brewed with six different malts for a satisfying, rich, malty body full of roasty, chocolatey flavours, all balanced by a deep and lasting hop bitterness. This one hits the spot like no other.
JAN - APR & OCT - JAN
First brewed back in 2008, this classy US-style pale ale makes a welcome return - a big, hoppy beer fit for Coyotes.
FEB - MAR & AUG - SEP
Coriander, orange zest, wheat and bags of fruity hops combine with malted barley to create a mellow, soft and refreshing English wheat ale. An ideal beer for revitalising the constitution after a hard day at the grindstone.
MAR - MAY
A classic, full-bodied mahogany ale: the aroma is spicy, grassy, fresh hop with hints of malt and toffee; the flavour smooth & deep, with a satisfying, lingering bitterness. This is a hearty ale at its most contemplative and agreeable - Drink to England!
APR - MAY
Natural crushed oats, just like your Granny uses in porridge, help to create this deliciously smooth and flavourful dark ale. There’s a rich, luxurious chocolate maltiness perfectly balanced by a robust Fuggle hop bitterness in this warming brew.
JAN - APR
Deliciously smooth, velvety mild ale with a touch of dark Belgian chocolate - just like we drank at school.
MAY - JUN
A deeply flavourful amber ale brewed with ‘Munich’ malt for a full body, a little aromatic malt (for, er, its smell) and a combination of spicy Kent and fruity west coast hops. Thoroughly enjoyable Summer Ale.
JUN - AUG
Brewed slightly differently each time, this beer always has big delicious fruity hop flavours riding lightly over a soft, mellow body.
MAY - JUN & SEP - OCT
Elaborate, tropical fruit hop notes dominate the nose, whilst pale ale malts structure a decent body to complement a measured bitterness. Drink in the sun.
JUN - OCT
Here in Kent, we brewers brew Kent Green Hop ales, fetching freshly picked and undried hops from the growers during the harvest, in September, and rushing back to the brewery to capture the spirit of the season in the day’s brew. These beers are the freshest beer can get, truly of place and season, and they taste divine.
SEP - NOV
Crisp, hoppy and spicy; another unique pale ale, but this time crafted from malted Rye and Kentish Bramling Cross hops for a satisfying, long finish. In its fifth consecutive year, this ale just gets more popular every time we wheel it out.
OCT - JAN
Our Yule Special is crafted with crystalised rye malt for
a bright red-berry flavour and well bittered with a melange of the spicier Kent hops to lend a distinctively festive character to this unique ale.
DEC - JAN
An ESP production – this rich, smooth, dark ale combines great flavours from English, German and Belgian malts with a careful blend of American and Kentish hops to give a truly complex drinking experience.
NOV - JAN
NOV - DEC
Every year, after Humphrey has harvested and packed our East Kent Goldings hops, we brew up a beer designed to show ‘em off in all their glory – pale malt to the back, juicy, lemony hops to the fore. Kent’s very finest.
