Foundry Black, Foundry Red Rye and Foundry, Helles, Foundry Steam, Foundry Torpedo, Street Light Porter and Foundry Man’s Gold are also available in bottle conditioned form.
The range of ales is available in both the The Foundry Brew Pub and The City Arms, Canterbury.
A new spring beer was launched at the beginning of March 2012, and is called Yellow Tail. It has an ABV of 4.5% and is described as “a very light and fruity beer”. Apparently the French used to call Kentish people “yellow tails” in medieval times because there was a superstition that they had tails!! The beer was initially distributed to 30 pubs, and locally it is likely to be found in The Thomas Ingoldsby on Burgate and The Phoenix on Old Dover Road.
A stronger and darker best bitter is being launched in June for the 200th anniversary of The Crabble Corn Mill and will be known as Red Raddle; it will have an ABV of 5%. Red Raddle was the name of the paint used on the mill stones in the Dover area.
A new beer from Canterbury Ales – The Knights Ale 4.6% deep ruby featuring Northdown and Fuggles is available from now. The Millers Ale is also proving popular, especially in the Tiger at Stowting.
Wife of Bath (pale ale 3.8% flavoured with Amarillo) is still going well. Canterbury Ales beers are available in a bottle conditioned format too.
