A multi award winning artisan Brewery & Distillery. Located in The Foundry Brew Pub, in the heart of historic Canterbury. The beautiful industrial building, originally a Victorian Foundry that made the very first Streetlights that can be seen from New York to Port Elizabeth.
You can view the brewing and distilling whilst eating a meal in the restaurant and sampling a wide range of handcrafted beers and spirits, all made on site from grain to glass. Our busy restaurant serves a range of traditional English pub food and American inspired brewpub classics. We are one of the few Gin makers to make our own base spirit, we brew this on site from the finest English Barley. We are one of only a handful of Rum distillers in the country, our Rums are distilled from A grade Molasses wine fermented in the Distillery.
Our Single Malt Single barrel Whiskey’s age for you to see, and can be pre ordered. One is fermented with a yeast from Canterbury’s St Augustine’s Abbey.
Brewery & Distillery tours and tastings are available to book online or by pre arrangement.
Canterbury Brewers & Distillers also organise The Kent Green Hop Beer Festival in the City the last weekend of September. All the brewers of Kent brew beer with hops directly from the harvest (fresh before the drying process). These unique beers are only available for a few weeks until the next harvest. This is a great three day event at the very family friendly Canterbury Food & Drink Festival in the Dane John Gardens.
