What is Kent Green Hop Beer?
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.
And there’s a fortnight dedicated to these beers?
Indeed there is. We think Kent Green Hop Beers are more than a bit special so we want EVERYBODY to come and try them.
This year’s Kent Green Hop Beer Fortnight officially begins at at Canterbury Food & Drink Festival on Friday 26th September 2014. 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, our Where to drink page show’s last year’s stockists at present but we’ll update it as soon as we can. Breweries in East Kent are also holding another Open Day for 2014 so you can drink Kent Green Hop Beer with the people that make it.
Who makes these amazing beers?
Almost every brewery in Kent is making at least one – some have made several. We have more than 20 breweries in the county so that’s a huge range of beers – more than 30 this year! They’ll all be different too as each brewer will be creating their own recipe. Have a look at our Beers page for a list with descriptions and tasting notes.
How can I find out more and make sure I get to Kent in time to try these beers?
