Brewed by Yates (Isle of Wight)
In 2009 Ventnor Botanic Garden resurrected the lost, centuries old, hop growing tradition of the Isle of Wight. We now have the only fully established productive hop yard on the island. Our hops are carefully maintained, basking in the microclimate of the Undercliff and perched on the very cliff top to the south of the Garden. Every year the hops are picked by hand, then dried and packaged before being brewed by the famous Island Yates’ Brewery to make Ventnor Botanic Garden’s own bottle conditioned ale.
