Old Dairy Brewery : Green Hop Challenger ABV 4.0% "green tea"
The Old Dairy Brewery started out in 2010 in an old milking parlour deep in the Kent countryside. From them comes their Green Hop Challenger, they are fortunate to live in hop growing country and can have hops straight from the gardens (from Hukins Hops in Tenterden in this case) and into the beer in less than 12 hours, sometimes a lot quicker! This offering is described as having spicy, cedar, green tea aroma with sweet floral flavour notes.

Gadds Brewery : Green Hop Ale ABV 4.8% "crisp, resinous"
The Brewery began life in the back of a Ramsgate boozer full of louts and ne'er-do-wells, back in 2002. In 2006 they purchased a big shed and set-up again (properly this time), bigger, better and bolder than before, brewing fresh, tasty, local ale for fresh, tasty locals. From them for their Green Hop Ale they grabbed a sackful of hops from Humphrey's Gardens and created a proper 'fresh hop ale', with extremely crisp resinous hop notes with the malt taking a back seat.
