Late afternoon visit to meet up (late) for a group Micropub bash. Since last visit a dartboard has been added here and some longer opening hours. Good chat with a Whitstable Brewery worker / rep about the mysteries of KeyKeg from which I concluded very few KeyKeg beers are ever real ale.

I arrived soon after 4pm for the pub's 4pm opening only to find that they now open at 2pm. Update sent to What Pub. A good friendly pub in the micropub style.

Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 73.80ExcellentDelicious pale bitter with just the right bitternes, just slightly less malt than usual? Traditional bitter at its best.

Early doors and first customer. Felt a bit guilty as the landlord was enjoying his fish and chips....

Early evening visit. Sheerness needs a real ale and cider outlet like this enormously. Well done to the owners for fulfilling its quirky name with matching artefacts.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Ilkley - Mary Jane3.50GoodNearing end of cask, thin gruel
My Generation (sub-brand of Black Sheep) - My Generation Session Pale Ale4.20GoodAn annoying beer as it does not declare its Black Sheep provenance. Initial bitter promise dissipated as its sweetness came through
Romney Marsh - Amber Ale4.40Good

Newly opened Micropub on the Isle Of Sheppey. “The Flying Sheep” inherits it’s name from the history of Sheppey’s aviation past and the fact that the “Island Of Sheep” was full of erm!! Sheep. The premises, a former beauty salon, is still in the same ownership but now Sheppey’s 3rd and soon to be 4th Micropub. Decor reflects the links to Sheppey’s aviation history with parts of aircraft adorning the walls and genuine aircraft seats plus the odd sheep here and there.
