Set in the Kent countryside, Bleangate Brewery is blessed with fields surrounded by ancient oak woodlands. The brewery taproom and shop, 'The Cathedral', is a special place to worship the product of the bine and the grain, a wonderful place to stop by for a glass or two of beer, a takeaway or join the faithful at Firkins at Full Moon, our monthly gatherings.
Firkins at Full Moon events include a range of live music, and other entertainment. Click below to be added to the mailing list for regular monthly newsletters.
Super lunar event-
The first full moon after the harvest moon and was traditionally the time when people would start hunting and preparing for winter in the Anglo-saxon time.
Saturday 7th October 2023
Your chance to taste newly released beers made from just harvested fresh hops.
This year we have brewed Good Harvest and Goodness Gracious Me Green Hop, both award winning beers!
There will be live music throughout the afternoon, BBQ and delicious Stone Baked pizzas!
Firkins at full moon
The full corn moon celebrates when crops are gathered at the end of a summer season. This particular full moon is especially bright and rises early, letting farmers continue into the night; it is associated with fertility and prosperity.
Rare opening on a Sunday!
Summer Saturday at the brewery will be on Saturday 1st July with the wonderfully talented Blake Sonnet who will be performing some ‘thoughtful, real, songs that say something and mean it’. Will be a great afternoon!
There will be at least five cask ales on tap, from the cask including Dead Good a fine, hoppy bitter.
A variety of locally produced wines, juices, ciders etc will be available from the bar and chilli sauces etc to take away or to have on one of our delicious stone baked pizzas.
Children are very welcome, there is plenty of space for them to enjoy themselves but we would like to remind you that you will be responsible for supervising at all times.
Well behaved dogs are also welcome
