Cellar Head Brewing on secret new hops and taste bud tickling

Since we moved to bigger premises in December 2018, we are really excited to be an official Kent green hop brewer, all be it by a mere 100 yards from the Kent/East Sussex border.

KGHBF is the beer festival we look forward to the most every year. There is such a camaraderie among the brewers and the general public that attend, it really is the best fun you can have with your clothes on!

Each year we look for a different variety to brew with, luckily for us we have 6 hop farmers within 15 miles of the brewery. We always choose an early hop and then something else, but not the run of the mill Fuggle, Golding and Challenger.  We hope to repeat our success of last year and will be brewing for you the multi award winning 4.5% Pole Dancer with Strangs #7. It was so good it would be rude not too.

We have a secret supply of another hop, which again, no-one has to our knowledge brewed a green hop beer with before. Hopefully it will be ready in time to tickle your taste buds in Canterbury, if not it will certainly be found around the pubs of Kent and Sussex and most definitely at the Spa Valley beer festival in Tunbridge Wells in October.

Roll on September, it really is the most wonderful time of the year!
