Late afternoon - about an hour after it opened. Good number of folk enjoying the glorious weather; bit of live music in the bar area. 61 beers available and a cider bar. Note beer 61 - The Mogul - is not on the printed list - and shouldn't be missed in my opinion. Just listed those tried.
Breakwater - The Mogul5.60ExcellentCommemorating arguably the best pub in Dover (RIP) - and this beer lived up to it - complex notes and a great bite - slightly hazy or else it would have got top marks.
Coniston - Special Oatmeal Stout4.50GoodChocolatey with a hint of smoke. Sponsored by The Lanes.
Partners - American Craft Ale4.50Good
S43 (formerly Sonnet 43) - Aurora IPA4.40GoodDescribed rather ostentatiously as "Poetry in a glass" - rather good nonetheless.
Green Jack - Trawlerboys4.60AcceptableNot to my liking - malty with a rather acrid bitterness.

About the Crabble Corn Mill Beer Festival 2017

Summary of Beer Scores



The Beer Festival is found in Dover, Kent, CT17 0UY.

200 year old corn mill open to the public. Although not a CAMRA beer festival many of the people who run it seem to be from the local CAMRA branch. Run along the same lines as a CAMRA festival this is an excellent event held in a grounds and mill building.

We have visited this Beer Festival once, seen 5 different beers and tried them all.
