The first Green Hop Ale, Wantsum Fuggles One Hop, came and went yesterday, pausing only to gain a big "thumbs up" from the Conqueror faithful. I expect the next offering, Seriously Saison from the Foundry, to go just as quickly. I tasted it at the Canterbury Food Festival yesterday and it's delicious.

By the end of the week, the first of the green hop ales should be available at The Conqueror. We will be having seven in all during "Green Hop Fortnight", which starts on 28th September. This is an exciting new initiative from Kent's brewers, using hops which have not been kilned and which therefore retain their natural oils, giving the beer a distinctive flavour. Do give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
