Aren’t 4 day weekends a great invention. Of course not everyone is lucky enough to get the whole 4 days off, there are the emergency services (hopefully you didn’t need them), the shops for those last minute sausage rolls, the staff at the local takeaway and the publican and bar staff at your local hostelry.

It is June at last (or too soon depending on your viewpoint?) and this weekend is the Jubilee celebration.
We have produced a Diamond Jubilee cask ale that you will hopefully find in your local public house, it is a 3.8% light coloured ale brewed using only pale ale malt which has a pleasant summery bouquet from the hops.

It’s chocks away for Kent Crisps as they reveal the latest flavour in their award-winning portfolio – Roast Beef and Spitfire Ale.
The premium ale from Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer, was originally brewed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Its characteristically Kentish, hoppy flavour has made it a firm favourite with beer lovers.

When I joined Shepherd Neame at the start of the year one of the big projects that had just started was trial brewing of Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
Late in 2011 a deal had been agreed with the Boston Beer Company for Shepherd Neame to brew this world famous beer under licence in Faversham – the first time that it has been brewed outside the USA. January was a great time for me to join as I could get involved in brewing this superb beer!
