Old Dairy brew up new craft beer range

If you're partial to a refreshing cold beer, you'll be pleased to hear that The Old Dairy Brewery have been busy brewing up a new flavoursome range of beers!

Cattle Shed is Old Dairy's new craft beer range. It is available in a keg as well as 330ml bottles and cans.

Cattle Shed is Old Dairy's new range of craft beers

With quirkier branding and a distinctive edgy style, the new Cattle Shed range showcases the talents of two recently recruited brewers from the US, who have worked tirelessly at the Tenterden brewery to perfect three exciting new beers, each with an individual twist.

The Cattle Shed range includes: 

Working Class Hero  - 4.5% Farmhouse Saisonbeer3
A continental Saison beer for the English palate.

Old Dairy have used English malt and hops but kept it traditional with the Bell Saison yeast to give it the buttery characteristics and pear drop / bubblegum aroma you would expect from a Belgium beer.
Very refreshing, and at 4.5% abv.

Foreshank Redemption – 5.5% American Pale Alebeer
A classic American pale ale

Forget the predictable over hopped “English take” on an APA, this is brewed by someone in the know! Using the American ale malt and a combination of three American hops. Just the right balance of hop and malt flavour as the beer was always intended. A crisp clean taste that allows the piney flavour with a hint of candy to come
through. The aroma is of tropical fruit as you would expect but at a
more acceptable level. 5.5% abv

Raging Bull – 9.0% Double IPAbeer2

This beer has been inspired by Old Dairy's Anglo-American connections. A huge malt base to give the strength and a solid body to the beer and not have the overpowering alcohol notes often found in DIPA’s. it's been balanced with both American hops and a very rare English hop grown just a mile from the brewery. This give it notes of lemon and tangerine with a hint of pepper in both flavour and aroma. At 9% abv, this one is pretty strong, so show it some respect!
