The Old Dairy Brewery is nestled deep in the heart of the 'Garden of England' just moments from the High Street in the picturesque market town of Tenterden.

Old Dairy Brewery started brewing in 2009 on a converted farm (hence our name) and we moved to our new larger 30 barrel brewery in 2014.  With glorious views over rolling countryside, the brewery is housed in two old World War 11 Nissen buildings next to the Kent & East sussex Railway.

Brewery tours take place on Saturday mornings and Thursday afternoons and must be booked in advance.  However, if you would like to come on another day (excluding Sundays and bank holidays) please do contact us.  Our tours take 1.5 hours and are £10 per person and include a full tour of the brewery as well as a chance to sample our beers in our Brewery Shop.

Old Dairy beers are instantly recognisable with the distinctive branding and a nostalgic play on coloured bottle tops for each individual beer.  Only the finest malts and hops are used to brew our beers and the majority of beers are brewed using English hops, which are grown on our doorstep just three miles away by Hukins Hops of Biddenden.  We brew with well known Kent varieties such as Challenger, Goldings and Fuggles.

Brewing a range of award-winning beers with a modern twist for different occasions takes Old Dairy customers through a taste journey of styles, seasons and speciality brews.
