This is the last chance you will ever have to drink this beer. Why? Sadly the brewery has closed and we have the last few bottles which we will only be selling at the beer festival. Chocolate, coffee, it is all about the malts. Come and drink it by the gallon*.
*Always drink (responsibly).
Marble beers began brewing in 1997 after owner Vance Debechval and manager Mark Dade decided it was a choice between a karaoke room or independent brewing, to aide the survival of The Marble Arch Inn. Mark left to set up in 2000 and this saw current head brewer, James Campbell join the company. Bringing an emphasis on high quality ingredients, hop forward thinking and an idea to create beer that people wanted to drink and talk about, Marble brewery grew into the12 barrel plant it is today.

Our Brewery began life in the back of a Ramsgate boozer full of louts and ne'er-do-wells, back in 2002, and we spent the following four years struggling away in the tight, smelly and smokey surroundings until we'd built up enough customers to break free. In 2006 we purchased a big shed and set-up again (properly this time), bigger, better and bolder than before, brewing fresh, tasty, local ale for fresh, tasty locals. And it worked.
Today's Common Ale is typified by the use of German 'Northern Brewer' hops to impart a straightforward, crisp and clean bitterness with flavours of fresh grass, mint and a little wood. We used some German grains for fun (and for a juicy amber maltiness) and chucked in a small amount of West Coast grown citrusy hops for balance.
This is a rusty red proper bitter ale with complexity. Six different malts for a deep structure are used along with four different varieties of hops for flavour. Look out for notes of toffee, red berry, and spicy blackcurrent. Or just get into it and enjoy.
Kent Brewery is brewing with a mission to once again put Kent at the centre of the hop industry. For almost 500 years, Kent was synonymous with hops in Britain. It was the cradle of innovation - creating and producing the most popular hop varieties for over 200 years. In the 18th century, 77,000 acres of Kent were dedicated to growing hops, and Londoners would holiday here to take part in the annual harvest. Today, Kent's hop fields have been reduced to around 1000 acres, and it is no longer even the primary hop-growing county of England. Kent Brewery wants this to change. Kent Brewery beers are different. Whether the style is traditional or modern, each beer contains our own twist. Kent beers are never mediocre, never bland, and never normal. Some may provide you with what you might have expected, but with that bit more that makes them extra special. Some will be completely unexpected and show how much more can be achieved from the art and craft of brewing.

Maidstone has had a long tradition of commercial brewing dating back to before 1650. At the turn of this century century there were still four independent brewers operating in the town, but by 1972 the last of these had been taken over and ceased production. In 1983 Phil and Debbie Goacher opened their own brewery in the Loose valley thus reviving the art of brewing in the county town after a break of eleven years. The modern brewing plant was purpose built on site and constructed along classical lines, allowing for full mash brewing and open fermentation in stainless steel vessels. All Goacher's Ales are produced from 100% malted barley and whole Kentish hops without the addition of sugars or colouring of any kind. We believe that our commitment to excellence and traditional methods produces ales of distinction and character much sought after in this increasingly standardized world.
