At the end of September, Kent has a unique festival of green-hopped beers (beers brewed using freshly picked whole hops). It is taking place at the Canterbury Food and Drink Festival in the Dane John Gardens, Canterbury from 10am daily between Friday 26 September until Sunday 28 September. With over 20 breweries involved, this will prove to be a fantastic event for all you real ale lovers! For more details, go to

Those bottled will be added to the Kent-Ales range so look out for these very soon!
