I absolutely love Tonbridge. Situated in Kent, and not to be confused with Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge is a small town, with a lovely castle, a great community sports field and a pretty fishing lake to name but a few of its wonderful attractions. It’s a brilliant place for food lovers, and it has a fabulous butcher’s in Ian Chatfield. Put simply, it’s a great, unfussy, gem of a town to visit.

Tonbridge Old Fire Station is a venue itself. It’s a beautiful restored fire station which now serves delicious coffee and holds functions, including wedding receptions.

Tonbridge Old Fire Station beer however is an American Pale Ale. It is full of hoppy flavours and certainly has a very citrusy punch. Nicely balanced and with bittersweet undertones, it certainly is a fine brew.

I would say that, sometimes, for me, more is less. I would love to see it brewed with less hops, as it does kill some of the wonderful tones of the beer. But if you do love a hop filled beer, this is certainly one for you.

Serve it nice and cold to enjoy.
