Curious Story

The Curious Story

We were fed up with beer and cider that tasted of corporate cardboard and reeked of market research.

We wanted better tasting beer and cider that had balance, taste, style and originality. We made it using our winemaking skills and just the very best ingredients. Curious?

The world of Curious Drinks... Where taste comes first and last.

Where customers really do matter. Where we make beer that we want to drink and which we know is better beer. Where we only ever use the best ingredients. Where we can apply the unique passion, knowledge, care and balance of a winemaker’s skill to make a beer that makes people smile. Where it's not just about cramming so many hops into a pint it makes you wince, but creating a beer that has balance, depth, flavour and style and which does what great beer should do first and last - Refresh.

The Range

Curious Brew
“A curiously unique lager beer with champagne yeast”

A premium lager re-fermented with Champagne yeast and a late hop dosage of rare hops for a curiously distinctive, clean and refreshing beer. No taste of corporate cardboard. No whiff of market research. Just modern lager beer made to refresh and delight.

Curious Brew
Curious IPA
“A powerfully hoppy India Pale Ale”

Brewed using the finest pale ale malt and three complementary hops resulting in a balanced and distinctive beer with real drinkability. We use traditional English Golding, the fresh, sweet, delicate king of English hops; Bramling Cross, a forest fruity beauty; and Chinook, a punchy, spicy yet aromatic hop.

Curious IPA
Curious Porter
“English Porter made with a winemaking twist”

Curious Porter is a beautiful nutty black beer brewed using chocolate malt alongside classic English hops; Bramling Cross and Challenger. Matured with winemakers’ oak to give a gentle softness and balance to this naturally bitter beer.

Curious Porter
Curious Apple
“A pure expression of Kent from apples sourced from the Garden of England”

A cleaner, fresher cider made from handpicked Rubens and Bramley apples from Kent which are then fermented in our stainless steel tanks at the winery using wine yeast to better preserve the fruit’s aromatic flavour. 100% pure Kent apple juice, gently carbonated and extremely refreshing.
