Established in 2009 in a converted dairy in Rolvenden, Old Dairy Brewery relocated to a larger brewery in Tenterden in 2015 in order to accommodate increased demand for their beers. Proudly brewed in the Garden of England, all beers use Kent hops grown within three miles of the brewery. Old Dairy Brewery also has a Taproom and Brewery Shop, which are open to visitors seven days a week, making it a popular spot for enjoying a pint of beer in the Ashford countryside.
