Situated in the centre of Ashford, next to Ashford International Railway Station, and only 38 minutes from London St Pancras, this multi-million-pound investment by parent company Chapel Down opened in May 2019. A modern state-of-the-art brewery with a shop and tasting room on the ground floor and a bar and 120-seater restaurant upstairs feature the Curious Brew core range of Lager, IPA, cider and Porter, as well as special and seasonal brews. The Chapel Down range of English wines and spirits is also available. The Curious Brew products have been widely available in keg, bottle and can for some eight years but up until now have been contract brewed. Fresh beer from the brewery is served from tanks above the bar; this is unpasteurised but is filtered in common with the beer presented in other forms of packaging. Brewery tours and tastings can be booked via their web site. The brewery looks set to become a major tourist destination. A handpump serving cask conditioned ale was installed in late 2021 serving beers brewed on the premises.
