The beer pumps at The Foundry

City boasts rich pickings for craft beer lovers

by Kez Parvin

Craft beer. That hipster phrase at the tip of everyone’s tongue.

Is it a much more flavoursome alternative to the tasteless, amber coloured water that soaked England fans when Eric Dier scored that penalty against Columbia? Or, like the Robert Smith look we all once tried to pull off, just a phase.

I am one of the many who subscribe to the former, so I went to see if Canterbury agreed with me.

My first stop was the Bottle Shop, housed in the aptly named Goods Shed, situated next to Canterbury West train station.

Walking up the ramp and through the side door, you are immediately transported to a farmer’s market in rural France.
