Does look a bit curious to me. Does anyone down there in the Kent area know what this company is all about? Is it big business moving in on the craft scene? The marketing speak would suggest so...

 I dread to think what all that cost.

I got given a box of curious brew last christmas and it was quite a nice brew, a lager finished with champagne yeast.

Chapel down winery is a well regarded and medal winning English vineyard who stepped into producing beers and ciders about 5-6 years ago.  I drive past this place about 10 times a day working and have watched them build it 😄

Place should have opened 3 months ago, but that's how these things go.

I've drunk a bit of their produce and found it to be middle of the road big beer type "craft" stuff, but the tap may give better results - planning on an evening there soon, I'll drop a review when I do.

I missed this thread. I've drunk a bit of the Curious? beer- the IPA and the Lager, but not really seen much else come from them.

It all seems to be aimed at trendy bars and restaurants, rather than micropubs and the 'old man pubs' that I tend to target.

I might pop in one day... But it's not on the priority list.
