I dare you not to drool!
Many of my UK-based readers will be wondering how this blog has managed to run for so long without featuring a single beer from Kent's famous Shepherd Neame brewery.
Basically, it's hard to move around in this part of the world without bumping into a bottled ale from this company at least once per day, their share of the domestic bottle market is easily as large as anyone else's. In fact, it often seems as though UK law actively prohibits supermarkets from opening their doors without having at least three Shepherd Neame titles on their shelves.
If such a draconian law were ever to be passed - I suspect very few people would grumble!
Anyway, Shepherd Neame have clearly grown tired of waiting around for their beers to make an appearance, so they've gone and organized a grand entrance all of their own.
The beers are (from left to right)...
Christmas Ale - (Strong seasonal ale) 7.0% ABV
Goldings - (Golden ale) 4.5% ABV
1698 - (Strong ale) 6.5% ABV
Master Brew - (Bitter) 4.0% ABV
Canterbury Jack - (Pale ale) 4.0% ABV
Spitfire - (Premium bitter) 4.5% ABV
Bishop's Finger - (Strong ale) 5.4% ABV
Whitstable Bay - (Golden ale) 5.0% ABV
Late Red - (Premium ale) 4.5% ABV
It's high time these brews were on board, and I can't wait to get properly acquainted with every one of them.
