30. Old Dairy Brewery’s Blue Top Beer – Kentish Christmas Gift Guide
The Old Dairy Brewery’s original base was, unsurprisingly, in a converted dairy milking parlour. The Tenterden-based business have grown significantly since then but one thing remains the same – really great beer!
The team have taken some of their favourite beers from around the world and added their own unique twists. It is their Blue Top Indian pale ale however that won a gold award at last year’s SIBA Awards and we think it could make a great gift for any beer-lover in your life.
Inspired by the famous India Pale Ales brewed in the 18th century, their 4.8% Blue Top is described as delivering “a satisfying bitterness smoothly balanced with caramel flavours from the Crystal and Maris Otter malts, finished with a refreshing hint of citrus from East Kent Golding, Challenger and Fuggle hops. Ideal with a curry or other spicy dishes.”
A 12-pack costs £28 and can be purchased from their online shop.
