Occasional Beers

Variety is the spice of life so we regularly brew an eclectic range of special ales, which include AK1911 – a delicious historic beer brewed from a century-old Kentish recipe and our Green Hop (available in September and October only) - we literally pack the very green hops into the brew and the result is a delicious, very fresh tasting and perfectly hopped beer. 

Green Hop

September brings a unique opportunity for brewers; hop picking time! As we are fortunate to live in hop growing country we can have hops straight from the gardens (our hops come from Hukins Hops in Tenterden) and into the beer in less than 12 hours, sometimes a lot quicker! We literally pack the very green hops into the brew and the result is an delicious, very fresh tasting and perfectly hopped beer. Enjoy!

2016 Green Hop 

To celebrate Green Hop 2016 we are brewing three 4% Green Hop Beers using fresh Green Hops from our neighbours P&R Hukins of Haffenden Farm, Tenterden:

Green Hop CHALLENGER hops - Spicy, cedar, green tea aroma with sweet floral flavour notes.

Green Hop FUGGLE hops - Mild and pleasant, spicy, soft, woody, some fruit notes

Green Hop BULLION hops - Strong and zesty with blackcurrant characteristics

AK 1911

This delightfully light and extremely drinkable straw coloured beer is brewed to an historic recipe of a long lost Kent brewery from more than a century ago. East Kent Goldings hops give a pleasant fruity character, balanced with a sweet biscuity malt and hints of honey. We have chosen this as a perfect and very enjoyable example of the brewers’ art from a bygone era.
