The Beer

We have an exciting partnership with Time and Tide Brewing, who have produced a whopping 15 different styles of Deal Hop Farm beers since we began collaborating with them in 2019. They use our carefully grown Prima Donna hops to make beers in cask and cans, which are then sold in pubs, cafes and off licences across Kent and London. Time and Tide’s passion for producing exciting beers has been well received by our members and local ale enthusiasts.

Prior to our association with Time and Tide, our first brew back in 2017 was produced by Ripple Steam Artisan Brewery, a green hopped beer where the hops are used straight from picking into the brewing without first being dried. A beer style which showcases the Prima Donna hops; a 4.8% Green Hop Pale Ale – clean, hazy pale ale with a wonderful floral and citrus aroma, hints of spice and a lovely balanced bitterness with a straightforward malt bill to really let the hops shine. Unfortunately, Ripple Steam who had been so supportive of our burgeoning community farm, closed in 2019.
