Pig & Porter – Red Spider Rye
Starting out as full-time event caterers and occasional brewers in 2012, Pig & Porter changed direction when they were able to take over a former brewery in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. They still love creating interesting food though, and occasionally still dabble in food and beer matching events. Pig & Porter’s approach to brewing is a subtle balance of art and science, and they give equal importance to each. They always look to brew with new ingredients – using experimental hops whenever they can – and above all look to create beers that they want to drink.
Red Spider Rye was their first brew once they’d taken over those premises – on New Year’s Eve 2012. It’s a ruby red ale made with rye malt, and Centennial and Columbus hops. The rye lends a peppery spiciness and the Centennial gives a massive burst of citrus. Full of flavour and really distinctive, this was awarded best beer in Kent 2015 by beer rating site Ratebeer.
Every effort is made to match the brewery recipe precisely, but at times it maybe necessary to change some of the listed ingredients on the recipe to alternatives due to seasonality or availability, but in all cases we do our best replace with something that won’t impact on the overall taste and flavour of the beer.
