Wantsum Hengist, brewed in Canterbury, is one of the best beers I've tried over here.
I found it at the West Gate Inn. See the little Wantsum shield on the far right, attached to the hand pump for cask ale? I told one of the folks behind the counter that I write about beer in the States. He gave me a spare Wantsum Hengist shield. I'm proud of this treasure.
