Premium Kentish Ale


10₵ Refund at collection depots when sold in South Australia. Standard Drinks: 1.8.

This 4.5% Kentish ale was first brewed in 1990 to celebrate the battle of Britain which was fought in the skies above Kent 50 years earlier.
The beer is named after the legendary spitfire aeroplane designed by R J Mitchell.
The versatility of the aircraft and the courage of its pilots were essential to victory and the spitfire is a key symbol of the spirit of that time.
