Limited run of 1000 x 750ml bottles. Serve chilled in Goblet style beer glass.
“It is the best beer to come out of Essex.” – Matt Chinnery (British Guild of Beer Writers)
“Developing in complexity and nuance as it ages, Brentwood Brewery’s Van Kannor could arguably be the best beer produced in Essex for many years. Smooth as silk, tart and fruity, with waves of peach and pear drop dominating the taste and a finish of spicy white pepper and crushed coriander seed, this is certainly a beer that you need to experience at least once. It’s limited though so you’d better be quick as when it’s gone it’s gone forever.” -Justin Mason (British Guild of beer writers)
“Van Kannor is a really special beer! Pour it into a flute and savour the fruity aroma then take a sip. Sweet malts develop first, followed by a satisfying mouth filling mousse and finally a gentle bitterness. “Delicious as an aperitif and also with creamy cheese,” – Jane Peyton (Beer sommelier & School of booze and Beer o’clock author)
