The first new permanent beer for 4 years, Spirit of Kent celebrates the Kent Spitfire, a Mark IX Spitfire housed at the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar. It also remembers the 'XXX Modification Depth Charges' that flew out of Biggin Hill in June 1944 filled with Westerham Ales. The 'XXX Joy Juice' was racked into the unused auxiliary fuel tanks and flown over to the forward airbases in France click here for more details.
