Keepers are ales so popular we aim to keep them available all the time.

We craft regular brews of the following Real Ales. The KEEPER range incorporates colour variation from dark to light, low hop level ales and high hop level ales and various alcohol strengths for a balanced bar.

However we also like to bounce around like Mad Cats and enjoy the creativity and challenge of making different styles of ale. So for Seasonal Specials please see our SEASONAL range

Golden India Pale Ale 4.2%

A Golden ale with a noticeable delicious peppery hop aroma.

Hops: First Gold, Aurora, and Cascade producing complex taste tingling flavour.

The Golden colour derives from Amber Malt.

Good with Indian Fusion, Thai, Moroccan and Mexican cuisine.,

Platinum Blonde ale 4.2%.

Our lightest coloured beer made with a single very pale malt.

Noticeably citrus hop aroma. Great alternative to Lager. Chills nicely.

Made with very pale malt resulting in a very pale ale. T

Our Platinum Blonde goes well with white meat dishes; chicken, pork, fish, and sushi.

Red Ale 3.9%. Best Bitter.

Chestnut Brown bitter noticeably, but not overpoweringly, malty. A bit fruity and nutty too.

We’re looking for a good all rounder that will lubricate good times and good conversation. 

This will be a beer that you’ll enjoy with steak and chips, dark meaty dishes or a decent ploughman’s.

Mild Disobedience 4.0%

Black mild.

A naughty little number blending Rye and Carafa Malt.

Fruits of the forest flavours from Bramling Cross Hops,

Darker than a normal bitter but more light hearted than a dark and brooding stout. Milds! They don’t like to follow the rules of other beers 

Great with Food! It just seems to go with everything.

Crispin Amber Ale 4.0% and Crispin Pale Ale 4.0%.

The Crispin Amber ale was originally commissioned by The Crispin Inn in Sandwich.  Terry The Landlord and some of his customers joined the Mad Cat team to brew the first batch of this beer and has been involved all the way through several developments with feedback from his customers.

Now available throughout our region (but reserved in Sandwich for The Crispin Inn) as both a 4.0% amber malty ale and a 4.0% hoppier pale ale version. Same strength, same hops, same yeast, but the pale ale has less dark malt.

A Delicious use of Kent’s finest East Kent Goldings hops.
