Pubs serving KGHB 2014

Here’s the list of pubs stocking Kent Green Hop Beer in 2014. The list can also be found on the where to drink page of our site (which includes links to many of the pub websites – more links to be added).

We will update the page BUT NOT THIS POST as and when we receive updates and additions to the list.  PLEASE check with the pub – and ask if they are currently serving green hop beer – before making a special journey . Because cask beer is a fresh product and when it’s gone, it’s gone, we just aren’t able to tell you exactly when and where KGHB is on the bar at various pubs.
