Brilliant news, hope everything goes well for you 🤞
Cheers mate! Starting really small using my little three vessel set up 🍺 my local bottle shop has ordered two cases already so exciting times ahead. Looking to prove concept and then fingers crossed scale up in the new year…

You should start a thread, i'd love to hear how you get on. Might inspire me to get the garage weatherproof and converted into a brewery... :laugh8:

It was the Rigden Brewery with the last takeovers being by Fremlins and then Whitbread and the building now appears to be an outlet for Whites who sell fabrics. My chosen prize will involve you nipping round the corner and getting me a mixed crate of Shepherd Neames!
Oh, so close, but a faller at the last fence, so no case of Sheps. unfortunately.
Shame!
The correct answer was Tesco.
An alternative acceptable answer may have been Faversham Umbrellas.
My Best Man lived opposite the Fremlins main entrance and offices in 22 Court Street when he was a brewer at Shepherd Neame.
Yes, a pro.
It was a conversion of the roof space above the staff social club.
They forgot to insulate the rafter/tiles and subsequently it was f'ing freezing anytime except on Midsummer's day, when it was blistering hot!
Whites (A linen and lingerie shop! ) are up the top of Court Street at 2 - 3, adjacent to the Market.
Well done, though.
I thought @Hazelwood Brewery was a shoe-in for the points prize.
Just perching as it was too easy for him, perhaps.

Yesterday I made a stout, bottled a wet hop blonde ale, and then sat down with a glass of beer that I made 12 months ago and I really enjoyed it - it's one of my favourite home brews of mine of recent years. It's a strong bitter, around 1.050 OG. Lots of hops. Verdant yeast. It took a while to get into its stride but has been fantastic. I based it on another beer I made the year before that was also excellent. I think I have one bottle left. I must rebrew immediately!

Can I ask? That grain bill looks more or less like a stout to me. So what is it that is making this a mild, rather than a stout? Is it less hops? Or the yeast?
