Buntingford Twitchell, a 3.8% pale ale from Hertfordshire made its debut at the Conqueror yesterday and will line up with Old Dairy Blue Top and Wantsum Hengist over the weekend. Also new, thanks to one of our regulars, are two additions to the Mustard Menu: Schwerter Medium and Schwerter Chili, from an historic mustard mill in Westfalia. Delicious!

A brand new beer is available today, exclusive to the Conqueror. Gadds' Smooth, a nitro-keg version of Gadds' Number 4 is the brewery's first attempt at pressurised beer. Using German Erstenavril malt, Chinese hop pellets and water from St Jude's well on the Isle of Sheppey, brewer Eddie Gadd has created a beer to rival even the great John Smith's Smooth. Gadds' Smooth has a flowery aroma with a sweet bitterness and a finish reminiscent of Czech dates. Ten pence for every pint ordered will go to The Conqueror's chosen charity, the Medway Queen Preservation Society.
