23rd January 2019


Dry January is almost over (hooray!), if you are already thinking about that first sip in February then look no further than Curious Brewery’s selection of premium beers and cider for the discerning drinker to enjoy!

The beer-making arm of England’s leading winemaker Chapel Down; Curious Brewery only ever uses the finest quality ingredients. The brewery applies the unique passion, care and skill of a winemaker to deliver a distinguished balance and flavour, ensuring that every sip does what a great beer should – refresh.


Celebrate the end of Dry January with Curious Brew, a lager for people who love beer. A lager of purity and freshness, brewed using Saaz and Cascade hops and fine English pale malt. For a cleaner, fruitier and more aromatic finish, it is then re-fermented with Champagne yeast and a ‘dosage’ of rare Nelson Sauvin hops.

ABV: 4.7%

Price: RRP £20.00 per 12 can case

Savour and enjoy each moment of your first beer of 2019 with Curious Session IPA. This refreshing, zesty 4.4% Session IPA with three complementary hops is a homage to the power of three, used to create Bordeaux, Champagne and Chapel Down’s English Sparkling wines. The result is a pale ale of balance, finesse and distinctive drinkability.

The lower ABV makes it perfect for those taking it slowly after a month’s break. Also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

ABV: 4.4%

If cider is what you’ve been craving throughout January then discover the crisp and delicious Curious Apple.

A cleaner, fresher cider made from fully ripe, hand-picked Rubens and Bramley apples from Kent. The apples are then fermented in stainless steel tanks at the winery using our Bacchus wine yeast to preserve the aromatic, delicate, crisp flavour.

ABV: 5.2%

Price: RRP £20.00 per 12 bottle case
