HARVEY'S SUSSEX BITTER

 

Ahh yes...everyone we spoke to said we had to have Harvey's on tap - so here it is in all its glory.

 

Tailored to the taste buds of the people of Sussex and Kent over many decades, this popular beer is brewed with the finest Maris Otter malted barley and a small percentage of roasted ‘Crystal’ malt. A blend of four different hops from local growers impart a distinctive character and a moreish quality.

 

youngs special

YOUNG'S SPECIAL

A refreshing cask ale with a fresh, fruity aroma that leaves a long, satisfying bitter finish. It is traditionally brewed to deliver a clean taste and is light and dry in flavour with a subtle taste of hops.

 

ABV: 4.5%

summer

 

A trendsetter in the brewing industry; the original Summer ale brewed all year round. An extremely pleasant, straw coloured beer with a terrific fresh, hoppy aroma. This, coupled with an intense bitterness, leads to an excellent long, dry finish. Probably the beer to receive the most awards in Britain!

ABV: 5%

harveys wharf

Wharf IPA is a modern heavily hopped IPA.

It is brewed with new hop varieties to create a joyful outpouring of fresh flavours from the bine.

Zesty and fragrant, this golden beer contains the very essence of our local hop gardens.

curious brew

Curios Brew, another local favourite from Chapel Down in Tenterden, a genuine craft lager beer. Taste the difference.

 

A premium lager brewed and re-fermented with Champagne yeast for a curiously distinctive, clean and refreshing lager beer.  No taste of corporate cardboard. No whiff of market research. Just modern lager beer made to refresh and delight.

rsz_guiness_2

Needs no introduction..sweet smelling with a coffee and malty nose and the perfect balance of bitter and sweet with malt and roast characters. 

turners

Turners Apple Pie cider made locally in Marden, this is a winter warmer, flavoured with spices and sweetened with fresh apple juice. Equally delicious hot or cold.

 

ABV: 4%

king
