Get behind the England team’s bid for football glory this summer with a pint of 4-4-2.

Originally conceived in Shepherd Neame’s pilot brewery, the seasonal ale is now among a new collection of No.18 Yard Brewhouse beers available nationwide.

Named 4-4-2 after the popular football formation, the beer also has its own special line-up – in the form of 10 different hop varieties included in the brew.

These are Kent-grown Fuggles, Admiral, First Gold, Challenger, Cascade and East Kent Goldings; Germany’s Halletau Hersbrucker, Herkules and Halletau Mittelfruh; and Saaz from the Czech Republic.

They are melded with crystal and ale malt to create a delicious, full bodied brew which is pale in colour.

4-4-2 (ABV 4%) will be available from June 9 to July 13 - a perfect accompaniment to the summer of sporting excitement ahead.

And make sure you don’t miss out on the other limited edition beers on offer from No.18 Yard Brewhouse this year:
·         Spooks Halloween Ale (4.7% abv) - a devilishly great beer, available from October 6 to November 2
·         Rudolph’s Reward (3.7% abv) - a light winter beer, available from December 1 to 31.
