My first visit here and I had difficulty finding it because Google Maps put it on the wrong industrial estate. I arrived to find the place firmly closed but a quick telephone call to the number displayed outside resulted in the brewing team pulling up about five minutes later and opening the taproom. It was well worth the wait as I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and had a good chat with the father and son team that run the place. They have only recently reopened after COVID and did not have any cask beers today but both fermenters are full and much of that will be casked. I was shown the artwork for some new pump clips.

The pub is found in Manston, Kent, CT12 5GD.

Situated in the Maple Leaf Business Park the brewery and taproom are together here. For now the taproom is downstairs but the upstairs is being prepared to accommodate larger numbers. Brewery vessels are in sight of the bar. Started brewing here in summer 2020. Several buses a day serve the site both in the very late afternoon, otherwise quite a walk from the nearest regular bus stops.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried them all.
