 Our Award Winning Beers












Permanent Cask Ales

Native Bitter (3.7%)

Renaissance Ruby Mild (3.8%)
 
Deep red in colour, this classic Mild has a nutty taste with a gentle roast malt aroma.
 
 
 


East India Pale Ale (4.1%)
 
Our East India Pale Ale’s vibrant yet well-balanced hop flavours leave the palate with an assertive finish. A painstakingly chosen blend of aromatic hops complements the best British pale malt to give both its citrus floral aroma and glorious golden hue. This multi award-winning India Pale Ale is the perfect choice for all weathers! 
 
Available in 500ml bottles                            

 

 
Pearl of Kent (4.5%)
 
A gorgeous, easy-drinking Golden Ale where tropical fruit flavours come to the fore ahead of a subtle yet rewarding bitterness.
 
 

 
Oyster Stout (4.5%)
 
A classic Stout with deep chocolate and mocha flavours; this rich, velvety and wonderfully drinkable beer is the perfect accompaniment to roast beef, oysters and game. This beer’s long and glorious heritage dates back to the 18th Century when a glass of Stout and a plate of Whitstable Oysters became the pairing of choice for millions of thirsty Britons!
 

 
Winkle Picker (4.5%)
 
A beautifully balanced amber Best Bitter; Winkle Picker’s maltiness offset by a firm but not overpowering bitterness and a delightful hint of orange delivers everything one could desire from a classic British Bitter.
 

 
Kentish Reserve (5.0%)
 
A Premium Bitter the colour of burnished copper. Crystal malt and a Goldings-led hop blend bring into being flavours of peaches and plums, ending on a note of rich ruby port.
 
 
 
 
Available in 500ml bottles
 
 
 


Keg Beers
 
Kentish Lager (4.1%)
 
Crisp, clean tasting session lager brewed using the authentic Czech hop Saaz. We believe in all-year refreshment so we’ve brewed this beer to be perfect for lazy Summer days in a beer garden, but equally good enjoyed by a roaring fire in the depths of Winter.
 

 
Whitstable Pilsner (4.9%)
 
A Czech-style Pilsner brewed using the authentic Saaz hop with a crisp and fresh citrusy flavour.  This refreshing beer is cold-stored over a period of weeks in a traditional process called lagering to allow a richer flavour and fuller body to develop.
 
Whitstable Brewery allows as much time as necessary and will never use any preservatives or additives to make sure that our beer is always lagered naturally and brewed with distinction.

Available in 330ml bottles
 

 
Oyster Stout (4.5%)
 
A classic Stout with deep chocolate and mocha flavours; this rich, velvety and wonderfully drinkable beer is the perfect accompaniment to roast beef, oysters and game. This beer’s long and glorious heritage dates back to the 18th Century when a glass of Stout and a plate of Whitstable Oysters became the pairing of choice for millions of thirsty Britons!
 
 Available in 330ml bottles
 


Wheat Beer (5.2%)

Our naturally cloudy Bavarian-inspired wheat beer has the style’s characteristic hints of banana and cloves chased by a refreshing citric lemon finish.
 
 
Available in 330ml bottles

 

 
 
Raspberry Wheat Beer (5.2%)
 
A deep red and naturally cloudy wheat beer where every sip is crisp and thirst-quenching. It’s bursting with refreshing raspberry flavours since over two hundred kilogrammes of raspberries go into making every batch 

 
Available in 330ml bottles




 

Seasonal and Special Cask Ales
 
Grafty Green Hop (4.8%)
 
This strikingly bitter Pale Ale is brewed using masses of fresh Challenger hops, picked in Kent only hours before brewing. Combined with pale malt, these hops deliver an invigorating burst of floral, hoppy flavour and give not only great refreshment but a full-bodied mouthful and cedar aroma.
 
Available Late September - October
 

   
Bohemium Cask Lager (4.9%)
 
This beer is a Czech-style Pilsner brewed using the authentic Saaz hop and naturally lagered but then racked into casks to create a 100% Real Ale. Whitstable Brewery’s take on this classic style has a crisp and fresh subtly citrusy flavour with a golden appearance and wonderfully sparkling condition.
   
                                      Available occasionally
 

 
Cockle Warmer (4.7%)
 
This is Autumn Ale with backbone!  The finest Crystal and Cara malts add a burning copper colour, full-bodied biscuit flavour and reviving warmth to the wonderful spiciness of the Styrian Golding hop. This is backed by an expert blend of three others to add a well-balanced citrus top note and a rounded bitterness. A pint of Cockle Warmer is the perfect choice to relax with after a cold and rainy day!
 
Available November - December
 
 
 


Christmas Spirit (4.7%)
 
Even the meanest Scrooge will find their Christmas Spirit after a glass of Whitstable Brewery’s new Yuletide Ale! 
Crystal Malt gives this Red Ale a warmth and depth of flavour perfectly suited to the Festive season while an All-English hop blend led by the powerful Admiral and celebrated East Kent Goldings varieties rounds off this beer with spices, marmalade, and a balanced bitterness. 
When you see its crimson-tinged amber colour and smell its wonderful aroma, you’ll be reminded of nothing so much as roaring fires, ruddy cheeks, and plenty of Festive Cheer!
 
Available December
 

 
Black Lager (4.7%)
 
This dark beer combines the depth of flavour of a stout with the crispness of a Czech lager. Roasted barley flavours balance perfectly with the taste of authentic Noble Hops, making this beer the perfect choice for all seasons.
 
Available occasionally
