My Story

The Spirit of Kent celebrates the Kent Spitfire TA805, a Mark IX Spitfire housed at the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar five miles from the brewery. The Spirit of Kent also recalls the ‘XXX Modification Depth Charges’ that flew out of Biggin Hill in June 1944 filled with Westerham Ales. The ‘XXX Joy Juice’ was racked into the unused auxiliary fuel tanks and flown over to the forward airbases in France.

The Spirit of Kent is hopped with 9 Kent hops in a total of 9 separate additions. Most of the hops 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.
