Curious Brewery

The Curious Brewery, where taste comes first and last. Distinctive beers and cider made by Chapel Down, England’s leading winemaker.

The Curious Brewery only ever use the best ingredients and apply the unique passion, knowledge, care and balance of a winemaker’s skill to make products that make people smile.  It’s not just about cramming so many hops in to a pint that it makes you wince, but creating a beer that has balance, depth, flavour and style and which does what great beer should do first and last – Refresh.

The range comprises:

  • Curious Brew: A premium lager brewed using Saaz and Cascade hops and the finest English Pilsner malt, then re-fermented with Champagne yeast and given a late ‘dosage’ of rare and fragrant Nelson Sauvin hops for a cleaner, fruitier and more refreshing modern lager beer.
  • Curious IPA: A delicately balanced but powerfully hoppy IPA with three complementary hops that is a homage to the power of three, as used to create Bordeaux, Champagne and Cotes du Rhone wines. The result is a pale ale of balance, finesse and distinctive drinkability.
  • Curious Apple: A cider made only with hand-picked apples from Kent, the Garden of England.  To preserve their aromatic, delicate and crisp flavour, the apples are pressed and then cold fermented with Bacchus wine yeast at the Chapel Down winery, resulting in a cleaner, fresher, modern cider.
