My Story

In Tudor times, the Manor of Westerham was bought by the Gresham family. This mercantile family’s crest was a grasshopper. This symbol adorns the weather vane above the Royal Exchange founded by Sir Thomas Gresham in 1565 and can be found at the site of a goldsmiths owned by Sir Thomas, dated 1563.

It is also the symbol of the Grasshopper on the Green in Westerham, a loyal customer of the Westerham Brewery since its foundation in 2004.

Grasshopper is a rich, malty red ale brewed with hops that are picked and dried at the National Trust’s only hop garden at Scotney Castle in Lamberhurst, Kent by hop grower Ian Strang. Ian is one of a dwindling number of noble hop growers left in Kent.
