Curious Brew is a premium lager brewed using fine English malt and Saaz & Cascade hops, then re-fermented with Champagne yeast and given a late ‘dosage’ of rare and fragrant Nelson Sauvin hops for a cleaner, fruitier and more refreshing modern lager beer.
Curious IPA is a delicately balanced but powerfully hoppy IPA with three complementary hops that is a homage to the power of three, as used to create Bordeaux, Champagne and Cotes du Rhone wines. The result is a pale ale of balance, finesse and distinctive drinkability.
Curious Porter is a nutty London-style Porter, brewed using chocolate malt and the classic English hops: Bramling Cross and Challenger. It’s then matured using winemakers vanilla oak to bring gentle sweetness to a naturally bitter beer. Curious Apple is the cider to compliment the range. Made only with hand-picked apples from Kent, the Garden of England. To preserve their aromatic, delicate and crisp flavour, the apples are pressed and then cold fermented with Bacchus wine yeast, resulting in a cleaner, fresher, modern cider.
