Well it seems that spring has sprung and Kent-Ales have been on the road, collecting more undiscovered, fine bottled ales from around the county.
Several new brews have come out from our current bottlers and we will shortly be adding at least two more micro-breweries to our fantastic range.
The new Time and Tide Brewery in Deal have five beers bottled and Caveman Brewery based in the cellar of the George and Dragon pub, Swanscombe, plan to have bottled beer available very soon. Keep logging in to keep up with details as they come on board. All exciting stuff!
We can also announce some dates of food and drinks events for your diary:
English Festival 2014, Riverside Country Park, Gillingham on Saturday 19 April from 11am-5pm (free entry).
Sweeps Festival 2014, Rochester High Street (in the car park next to the Jolly Knight pub), 3, 4, and 5 May. 10am-5pm daily.
Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre, Gillingham from Monday 30th June-Sunday 6th July. 9am-6pm daily.
At all of these events we plan to have as many beers available as possible so do come and find us!
Most exciting will be the first big cask ale festival organised by Kent-Ales. We have it arranged at Quex Park, Birchington to coincide with their 'Gears of Change & Cogs of War' event which takes place on the weekend of Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th in September. For full details of the event please go to www.quexpark.co.uk/events/gears-of-change
We plan to have on sale, ales from EVERY brewery in Kent, which will be quite unique.
To keep in touch with all that we are up to, please befriend us on Facebook (Kent Ales) or join us on Twitter (@Kent Ales.
We are also now supplying one of Kent's new breed of micro-pubs. The Heritage in Halfway, Isle of Sheppey, run by Melvin and Margaret Hopper, serves up to six real ales and takes more than a dozen different Kentish bottled ales from us. Do pop down if you're on the Island. The variety of ales available makes it well worth a visit!
