Brewery to open new bar at Folkestone Harbour

Folkestone Harbour, the burgeoning destination foodie experience and hub for independent food and drink brands in Kent, is proud to announce that pioneering Kentish beer brand and brewery Floc. are now open in The Goods Yard.

The Goods Yard, the Harbour’s buzzing outdoor street food plaza, is home to 10 entirely independent bars and street-food kiosks. The space is anchored by a big screen that shows an ambitious programme of sports of the day (currently screening the Six Nations) as well as hosting a free summer & festive cinema season and a variety of events.

Founded in 2020, Floc. has had a meteoric rise. What started as an at-home operation of brewing 150 cans per batch has blossomed into a well-loved beer brand, known for its hoppy, hazy, flavourful beer, purchased worldwide and brewed in their beautiful taproom space in Canterbury.

Floc. have taken on the main bar in The Goods Yard, located just next to The Harbour Screen. They are currently open at weekends only, 12pm – 4pm until the end of March.

Paulo Kingston-Correia, General Manager of Folkestone Harbour & Seafront Development Company, said:

“We’ve been watching Floc.’s impressive growth with admiration for some time. Floc. offers everything we love to see from the innovative array of independent food and drink businesses on our site. The team are ambitious, they are offering something that is high quality, something that is fresh and new, and we are confident that they will be a great addition to our site, and a real hit with our audience.

“Floc. recently announced a number of expansion plans for 2024 and we’re delighted that this new bar on the coast sits at the very centre of their exciting next chapter.”

Ross Shields, Founder of Floc. Brewing, said:

“We’re thrilled to share the news that we’re embarking on a new adventure at the Goods Yard bar on the scenic Folkestone Harbour. Our ambition to join this vibrant venue, built by the Folkestone Harbour team, has now materialised, and securing a spot in such a dynamic environment is a dream come true for our small independent business.

“Our offer will include our core range of modern draft and canned beer, complemented by weekly specials fresh from the brewery. Additionally, we’ll feature locally-produced Nightingale cider, exceptional cocktails by Black Lines, and a select wine list showcasing local and international producers.

“This marks our inaugural venture beyond Canterbury, and we extend our gratitude to the Folkestone Harbour team for their unwavering support and confidence in our vision for this space.

“We are committed to enhancing the already vibrant atmosphere of the venue and are optimistic that our selections will appeal to both the local community and visitors.”
