We produce around 1 million pints of beer a year and deliver to pubs, clubs and restaurants throughout East Kent. We brew distinctive Kentish beers, using years of knowledge, experience and understanding – we’ve been around long enough to know what we’re doing, and not so long as to be old fashioned.”

The Beer: “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.”

Having enjoyed other offerings from this great little Ramsgate based brewery I was very much looking forward to this and wasn’t disappointed. No, it’s not a Best Bitter but I enjoy a Porter or two occasionally, particularly when they are as good as this. 5.6% A.B.V
