Our story began early in 2010, when the brewery was set up in an old milking parlour deep in the Kent countryside. The Old Dairy Brewery was an immediate success, building a loyal fan base among ale enthusiasts who appreciated our finely crafted recipes, locally sourced ingredients and interesting variety of beer styles.
We soon outgrew the milking parlour and in mid 2014, built a new brewery inside two World War II Nissen buildings just behind the High Street in Tenterden, Kent. Not for nothing is this pretty market town known as the ‘jewel in the weald’; our brewery enjoys beautiful views over the rolling hills of the surrounding countryside. Why not come and see for yourself?
Since its beginnings, the brand has gone from strength to strength, boasting an impressive portfolio of cask and bottle-conditioned beer that comprises our signature core range of Red Top, a Best Bitter; Gold Top, a Golden Ale; Blue Top, an India Pale Ale, and Copper Top, a Premium Bitter, all rather aptly inspired by the old-fashioned milk bottle tops, as well as additional seasonal and special ales. Our beer can be found served on tap in watering holes throughout Kent and into East Sussex, Surrey and London, as well as in bottles from other outlets. SIBA and CAMRA affiliated, we regularly enter beer competitions, which usually result in awards and our beers are often featured in local fairs and festivals.Buy OnlineNew!
