Mad Cat Launches Bottled Craft Beer Range

Mad Cat – the Faversham micro-brewery – has responded to the current Covid-climate by launching a new selection of craft bottled beers, for customers to enjoy at home.  The range of four beers includes two IPAs, a strong bitter and a rye ale, and features a variety of different hops, aromas and flavour notes.  They will be available from the brewery’s website in February.

Mad Cat Brewery has a reputation for producing fun, novel beers using Kentish hops and packed with flavour and personality.  Its founder and owner, Peter Meaney, says: “Traditionally we have sold our beers in a variety of formats, although many of our products were only available in casks or kegs.  We have now chosen a terrific selection of our most popular beers to sell in bottles, to enable shops and retail outlets to stock these characterful and delicious craft beers. Customers can either buy them from their local shop or alternatively direct from us via our website.”

The new range of bottled beers includes:

  • Golden IPA: the first beer ever produced by Mad Cat eight years ago is a golden, hoppy ale and a firm favourite. Now available in bottles for the first time. 2%
  • 9th Life IPA: The brewery’s strongest beer inspired by the adventures of alley cats and featuring liquorice, citrus and peppery hoppy flavours. 5.9%
  • Emotional Blackmail: Named after Mad Cat brewer Ben’s cat, after he says he was emotionally blackmailed into agreeing to have him. This is a ruby rye ale with a dry, spicy character and a lingering bitter finish. 4.5%
  • Unsinkable Sam: Inspired by a cat who survived three ship sinkings during World War II. Mad Cat believes this sums up the sense of survival spirit during these tough Covid times. This is a strong “export” bitter with a maple and biscuity malt profile and a marmalade aroma.  2%

Peter continues: “This is great news for customers who, despite lockdown, can enjoy a wider range of delicious craft beers at home.   Bottled beers work well as they are more practical for shop sales and easier for drinkers to enjoy at home, rather than the larger volume of beer involved in buying 5 litre minikegs.  We’ve spent all of January brewing this latest batch of beers and we’re very excited about launching them into the big wide world.”
