COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

A red rye ale featuring an American clean tasting yeast to showcase the Centennial and Columbus hops. Each cask is dry hopped with both of them to enhance the aroma. A small amount of rye malt lends a spiciness to balance the beer. It is named after a Whitstable landmark, the Red Spider Cafe, now sadly long gone.
