Events at this Venue


Come to Kent between 23rd Sept & 9th Oct for unique beers made with fresh, green, undried hops.

Kent Green Hop Beer is beer made with fresh, or green, Kentish hops – instead of using hops that have been dried as is more traditional in brewing. The beers have a characteristic fresh taste because the hops used contain many of the oils that are normally lost when hops are dried. We make sure the hops are as fresh as can be by using them within 12 hours of being picked.

Kent Green Hop Beer Fortnight usually officially begins at at Canterbury Food & Drink Festival this year on Friday 23rd September 2016. This the only occasion and location when all (or nearly all!) Kent Green Hop Beers will be available in the same place at the same time. Select pubs throughout the county will also be stocking Kent Green Hop Beers, see our Where to drink page. Breweries in East Kent are also holding another Open Day for 2016 so you can drink Kent Green Hop Beer with the people that make it.
